Needle Notes

Cobblestone #3 by Jared Flood.

Barrett Wool Co Woolen Spun in Rain Shower colorway.

I am starting sleeve #2. Body complete to armholes.

Odette Hoodies for girls. Odette Hoodie by Carrie Bostick Hoge.

Both sweaters needed length in body. About 3 “.

In the last episode I explained how I lengthened the hoodies that were knitted from bottom up. I didn’t have enough of same dye lot so there is a wide stripe on the larger sweater. To fool the eye with the dye lots I presented a few options:


  1. 1.       Add a big pocket, small side pocket or two side pockets.

  2. 2.       Embellish with embroidery.

  3. 3.       Both of above

JanMarie said large pocket with embroidery too. Butterfly on sleeve.

I added a kangaroo pocket on each in garter stitch since there are garter stitch details on sweater.

  1. Marked middle of sweater all the way down with waste yarn.
  2. Picked up right leg of stitches along bottom just above ribbing, making sure you stay in the same row all the way across. Start picking up about 1” from side “seam” and end about 1” from left seam. Decreased 1 stitch on each side until width of pocket looked right then straight up.
  3. Used a modified 3 needle BO to join top of pocket to body of sweater. Again, picked up right leg of each stitch in row. (This is where marker in middle comes in handy because you want the same number of stitches on both sides of pocket and body of sweater. Worked really well and looks very tidy and sturdy.


Embroidery


In order to hide the dye lot change I fooled the eye with embroidery. Flower stems look as if they are coming out of the sides of the pocket. Flowers are different heights and colors. Leaves and buds on some, blooming flowers on others.

Helene's sweater size 4
Pocket detail

Butterfly and More flowers

Maeve's sweater with butterfly on sleeve.
A blue butterfly landed on her sleeve
Backs of sweaters:
Bunny on back of Maeve's sweater. 

Can you see the carrot?

Duplicate stitch bunny from My Knitted Doll by Louise Crowther. Grass with carrot in the ground. Duplicate stitch good for repairs and small areas. This came out rather bulky and stiff…but I think she will love it.

Tip: If you are using a grid pattern from a book, make sure it is for knitting or convert. Reason is that knit stitches are not square: the are wider than they are tall; so, if you took a pattern from a cross stitch book, for example, the resulting image would be distorted.

Helene's Sweater Backside

Fluffy bluebird in backstitch. Branch and worm on the ground (bullion stitch with antennae in black embroidery thread.) Much quicker than duplicate stitch.


I used backstitch to outline the bird.

This little caterpillar in bullion stitch might be my favorite thing!


Detail of 3 needle bind off to join pocket to sweater.


Embroidery stitches used:


  • Fly
  • Backstitch
  • Outline
  • Lazy Daisy
  • Chain
  • Bullion. New to me and I love it! Looks like caterpillars.
  • Palestrinian knot. Learned from Anna Zilborg. Works better than French knots on knit, although you can do French knots if you are careful where you put them. Can fall in ditch between vertical rows so don’t stand out much.
  • Algerian Eye ( little bulky but I left it in)


Tips for embroidery on knitting:


  • Use a practice swatch before you start.
  • Easier to do straight lines than curved lines. Knitting makes a grid.
  • Use a yarn equal to or thicker than base yarn. Shows up better.
  • For bird I cut out a simple shape using freezer paper and pinned it to the back of the sweater as a rough guideline.


Blethering Room

I have been doing quite a bit of quilting which I will show in the next video, coming soon.

Nature Notes


  • Lots of rain!
  • Peepers on our windows and at the creek.
  • Wildflowers: self-heal, rudbeckia, daisy fleabane,
  • Johnny Jump Ups self-seeded from our pots in the spring.
  • Goldfinches are molting into their winter plumage.
  • Last hummingbird sighting October 4th.
  • Lots of butterflies:Painted ladies, Buckeyes, Monarchs
  • Revived our deck for fall with mums, winter pansies.
  • Planted bulbs. Scilla and crocus in our Stump Garden.

A Vagabond Song by Bliss Carmen


There is something in the autumn that is native to my blood --
Touch of manner, hint of mood;
And my heart is like a rhyme,
With the yellow and the purple and the crimson keeping time.

The scarlet of the maples can shake me like a cry
Of bugles going by.
And my lonely spirit thrills
To see the frosty asters like a smoke upon the hills.

There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir;
We must rise and follow her,
When from every hill of flame

She calls and calls each vagabond by name.

--Bliss Carmen

Before me and my husband got married we had this great sex life that i enjoyed every time we made love and this was one of the many million reasons why i loved him. This great sex life was soon taken away from us when the embarrassing problem of weak erection and premature ejaculation came in, and due to this reason i was unable to conceive for 3 yrs after marriage because my husband was temporarily impotent and his sex drive and performance was affected by this problems. Over the years we tried a lot of drugs but to no avail, and i told myself that i can no longer bear the pain. I was very lucky to come across a post and how several people were cured permanently from ED, i had no much option and i contacted Dr Moses buba  and that was one of the best decisions i have ever made in life and that was all. We received the medication and since then the great sex life is back in my husband, we have 1 kids and we are so happy. For any related problem just contact him on (buba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com) or what-app him on +2349060529305

My name is sharon smith, i live in UK. My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids, I felt like ending it all.I came across several testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and also spell to get a good paid job so on. He is amazing, i also came across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Vera, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 24 hours, and at the end of her testimony she dropped his email.After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 24hours, my husband came back to me. We resolved our issues, and we are even happier than ever. DR LOVE0 you are a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man.
