Do you think this striping looks okay? I tried 4 different stitch counts to stop it, but it's winning. It's because they are size nb/sm. It's WSK Peace Baby on Gaia bulky I got from Savannah. I'm going to make a brown Baby Sophisticate sweater to match.

Re: KAL ~ Christmas is Coming! Dec 9-15

Know how I said I "didn't learn anything" after having my mom take over my FASC and fixing it for me? Not totally true... getting ready to knit the next row and I'm putting in a lifeline, that right there is lesson learned, right?

Can you work from both ends of the skein and alternate rows? I don't think it looks bad though!


Wow... switching from project on size 19's to project on size 10's is a shock to the hands!

Nah, too much work when they are for me instead of a custom. Lol! I bet that switch is a shock! I've never knit with anything bigger than 9's or smaller than 5's.

Mmm! Do you have a recipe you can share for the beer bread? We love beer bread, but we only have made it from mixes from tastefully simple and pampered chef ($$$)!

Yes ma'am it is!

I need to get on the cookies as well. My wrists were so bad this weekend I couldn't imagine rolling and cutting, but I think we will try to do it next weekend. I got supplies for another batch of fudge, so I can try to wrap up holiday planning and mail things out next weekend.
