Welcome to the July 15, 2007 edition of yarnival!.Sorry it took a little longer to post than I would like it seems I am not completely ‘back in the saddle again” but hopefully this internet trouble that has plagued me will be over soon! Enjoy!
I’m a homeschooling Mom and we follow a pretty traditional school year here since we use the Ohio Virtual Acadamy for our schooling. So that means I like to use the summer time to work on learning new knitting techniques and experiment. It seems I am not alone!
Learning a new Trick or two!
Pooch tells us What She Learned at Summer Camp ”Wherein an old dog learns a new trick!”
This one already came in handy for me! I hope you all find it useful too! Abigail shows us the Garter Stitch Graft , “A tutorial on the Garter Stitch graft, that makes every one crazy.”
Getting Creative and knitting outside the pattern!
Socks and shawls the summer travel knitting of choice shows up alot in blogs over the summertime!
Showing off some Shawls…
As I am struggling with my first shawl I am quite impressed!!
And some knits and more just for fun!!
With the tradgedy at Virginia Tech came some great acts of charity. Many knitters came together to put together blankets for the families of the victims of this tradgedy. Mary presents Whirlwind Weekend… posted at Virgin Wool, saying, “A post about my trip to Virginia Tech for the sewing party to sew together donated knitted and crocheted squares for Hokie Healing Blankets” And at the Mosaic Yarn shop blog they reveal the efforts of many hands at work to help the victims of Tthis tradgedy in a Big Unveiling! Thanks to all of you who helped!
