Needle Notes

Cobblestone by Jared Flood. Pullover with garter stitch details.

·        Sleeves too big and baggy. Went back to my roots with Knitting without Tears and used the reliable EPS or Elizabeth Percentage System.

·        Knit sleeves on one size larger needle.

·        Will add some length to the body too. 18”

·        Barrett Wool Co Wisconsin Woolen Spun. Molly was here this week and I asked her to touch it.

Molly, Millie, and Morgan by Susan B Anderson with Quince & Co

PrairiePiper’s Millie

Millie and Morgan and a tiny log cabin pillow I made c. 1985.

Helene is holding Millie. Maeve might have given Morgan the shove but picked her up before we left. Look at those legs and black shoes. Adorable!

Ben and Buddy Kit

  • ·        Quince & Co Chickadee. Available as kit on Quince site.

  • ·        Long hair, folk clothing, perfect size. An adult would love receiving one of these for sure.

  • ·        I had all the colors so I knit mine exactly as instructed. She may need some suspenders on her skirt or a drawstring. Size 2 needles. Dyakraft applewood.

  • ·        To see my granddaughters hugging their dolls brought me so much joy!

  • ·        Allow time because there are a lot of steps to the doll but it is very intuitive. I would say advanced or adventuresome beginner or intermediate. I’m ready to knit another one. The shoe/foot is probably the hardest part for me but really once I got it in my head that I was basically knitting a sock, the second one flew. I love watching the doll come to life with the hair and eyes.

  • I’m ready to knit another one without a deadline. And more clothes for Millie and Morgan.

Tomten Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann. 3514 projects on Ravelry.

Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Hoodie with zipper. All garter stitch. I have a little color detail on this one. Fit perfectly over Helene’s Odette Hoodie.

Boxy shape so comfortable layering over sweater. Hoodies have been in style since I was a kid and maybe longer. Probably longer.

Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542

I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
