So, Im going to do this pattern for my friend
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...l-street-scarf

But Im confused... I dont do charts, but there is written instructions too which I planned on using but I dont get it. It says
Row 8 – 48 (108): Work Aspen Lace Leaf (written or charted) rows 1 – 10, 4 (10) times

But the lace chart only has row 1-9 and is missing row 4.

Good morning ladies and Tim!

I love the Selah Elliot, it's sooo adorable and so is your DD!

I've been the same way with all the projects lately (Knitter's ADD), I have to weave ends on three things today- including the Avalon dress!! I finished, sewed the button on, and tried it on Alma this morning and it is
A fam friend is over and he loves it, too! This week I'm going to cast on some bodices for a few knit/fabric frocks for the girls.
I've also got a non-knit/crochet project going on too- I'm painting a wooden letter for a hairbow holder. I've 'picked up' hairbow-making the last year or so and I'm going to make Ella a huge bunch of mostly lined clips for school and we have so many now we need a bow/clip holder, lol! Hopefully I can finish that in the next few days.

I have to bake cookies today, and possibly brownies too. Dane's 4th B Day (DS5) in Tuesday and I have to make some dry runs on cupcakes. We're doing a beach thing with them, if all goes right and we'll all go to the beach since that's what he's asked to do. My little beach bum!

I took some pics of most of what I've been working on this morning...

SMSS Kimono for my SIL...it's still wet here, which is why the color looks uneven:


This is the Gift Wrap Romper I'm working on (the green that I have the sleeve stitches on is the yarn I'll be using for the trim):



And Braided Britches done with MicsKnitz In H'ewe Chocolate:

Well, I got to open my birthday present early last night! Today is my bday!

I told you awhile ago that my DH was building me a sewing/knitting room. Well it is done and I love it! It is right beside our playroom, so I can work while E plays!

Here are some pics!! Yay!

Looking in from the door




The concealed cabinets (he built them into the wall so they don't take up room.




And on Friday I got a yarn trade in the mail!!


What a great day!

Hi all! I cast on my first SH last night. I am just doing it in a cheap cotton blend, but it is actually really nice to work with! I am doing it in a bright blue with white trim, but I think I am going to do the pocket blue and maybe embroider a sailboat or something on it in white.

Happy Birthday! I am so jealous about the craft room! Right now my sewing machine is on our kitchen table and my knitting is either on the back of the couch(whatever I am actually actively working on) or under the couch in a big tupperware

I started the same way with dd2, and she's a peanut--but her big sis is a peanut too, and when she started solids & started adding cow milk and all that she didn't gain a darn thing either . Just did the standard nursing curve of chunk up until 4 months and then level off. Luckily I'm as scrawny as they are so if the docs ever say anything I just raise my eyebrow at them and they leave me alone

I'd post a WIP but it's solid olive & looks boring
