    I finally finished this thing!

    That is really good !

    Do you make money off of them if not you should !

    Thanks! And no, a lot of people don't want to pay the prices most of us would have to charge for the work that goes into these. I mostly do it for relaxation and to make things for people I care about.

    I've considered writing down patterns and selling the instructions to those, though. That's where most of the money is, lol.

    Do you make up your own patterns as well?

    Sometimes. I like to follow other patterns (because there are some AMAZING patterns out there), but I also like to make charts for my own. Specifically with intarsia or double stranded knitting. Tedious, but somehow satisfying. :)

    I admire your skills both at illustration and knitting...I wonder what other talents you may have!!

    I love that multi coloured sweater, and the table cloth is beautiful.

    I like knitted things that are "holey" I think they are really pretty. All my favourite sweaters are "holey".

    Lace patterning. :) It does make for a much more interesting sweater or cardigan, I agree. Can be a pain in the butt to knit if you don't keep track of the repeats, though. Still, way more interesting to knit than straight knit/purl. :D

    I really like to do stuff like this:

    Again, it can get tedious, though. That's usually why I'm working on multiple things at once.

    I am resurrecting this thread with... a doily. :D My poinsettia plant needed some pizazz, so I took a break from one project to crochet this up in an afternoon. :)

    I love all your work. My grandma tried teaching me but I didn't care much for it. She's gone now but I wished I had learned this from her.

    I learned from my grandma (also gone now) and my step-mom. Someone had to carry on her ability since no one else in our family picked it up, lol.

    I’m making slouchy hats. Pretty simple. That’s me. In the green. Not the model in the beard lol.

    Next up I’m going to make the bears/hat combo.

    Not too fabulous seeing what others here are doing but I’m happy with it.

    Did you just thread it through with a yarn needle to make the design or was it part of a kit like the yarn tatting things I see in craft stores?

    I'm a knitter and crocheter. This is a blanket I made for my Russian buddy who requested a folk art firebird blanket for his second child.

    No, I did it free hand with yarn.

    I have a business transferring recipes to plates. It's been a great way for me to work from home and have the flexibility to be with my kids.
