I love to look for different yarn stores while I am traveling. I always check out the local phone directory.
I have found yarn in London, Israel and all over the states. The only time I have trouble stopping to find yarn is when I am on a tour. Somehow tours don't seem to include yarn stores. I cannot understand why not!!

I made the baby blanket with 2 strands of yarn and on size 15 needles. It knit up qui ckly and came out so, so soft.
I added pretty ribbon bows to each corner. The mom really loved it and so did the baby!

Knitting machines have fascinated me, but I am sort of afraid of them. I will try to get my friend to demonstrate on hers.

I guess I am used to the old fashioned knitting- needles.

Amazing how many presents can be knitted. I finally made myself 2 scarfs, after making scarfs for the immediate world.

I am enjoying making scarfs the long way. That way I can use different textured yarns and it sort of self fringes. Interesting and quick.

Interesting idea to knit with fabric strips. I will look for the kit in my local Walmar, which just opened.
I have had great results knitting with riibbon, so it is time to try fabric.

Great reminder to finish started knitting projects!

Loved the idea of using old buttons, from past things and people. Reminded me how a sweater can be enhanced by something as simple as a unique button.

Nice to see other arts and crafts links. I don't think I will for blog sites in different languages- I will just stick to English!

I am also knitting a lace shawl. I am using fine yarn, small needles and the fan pattern. It is the type of project that keeps getting put down.
I probably have knitted a dozen other things, while the shawl grows inch by inch by inch.
