    Hello to all you wool/knit-a-holics
    knit_a_holic_mousepad-p144618557577582941td22_210.jpg
    It’s taken me ages to catch up again :eek: :eek: :j
    Thanks for wondering about me and thanks to all of you for your good wishes and hugs, pm’s & emails,brought a tear to my eyes reading all your posts & seeing your messages for me (& my mum)
    This is such a friendly place isn’t it?
    daft aren’t I ?

    thanks.jpg

    When my M.E. is really bad, I just can’t do anything (hard to explain .. you don’t won’t to hear all about it here) and I also had that awful bug that’s been going around so have been in bed for a lot of the time since I last posted and trying to keep an eye on my Mum and Dad
    Sometimes I’ve managed a quick look at what’s been happening, but didn’t have enough va va voom to manage to post on the thread myself
    Sorry

    re
    ‘Why can't people have open minds’
    One of the reasons is that,
    “An open mind leaves a chance for someone to drop a worthwhile thought in it”
    And it’s too risky/scary
    Just adopt this mantra

    You made me laugh re
    ‘Hello you wonderful people you!
    I'd like to volunteer to knit something for you - but the last thing I knitted was a scarf which took me 2 years and a lot of swearing Basically, I can barely knit! I have some double knitting wool and sort of thin chopstick sized needles and enough knitting ability to cast on and plain/purl. Will I be any use?’
    I’m sure your needles will soon be flying!:rotfl:

    i had a busy afternoon as i had to rush my 8 yr old boy upto A&E as he cut his lip over and the inside and knocked his tooth out, i wish i thought at the time and took my knitting with me as we had to wait 2 hours, But he is fine now he has been sorted out, got to go the dentist with him on moday to check his gap where his tooth was.

    I read this site a lot but only just registered to add my totals to this thread!! I started reading this thread this morning and thought it's something I could do while sat in the garden or watching tv.

    I had some wool and while watching the rugby made 7 preemie hats!! I crochet rather than knit as I hate sewing up and somehow is quicker for me than knitting.

    Maytaurus - welcome back you have been missed loads by all of us:T :T I hope things are improving for you and your mum now:A

    Shelley - ouch!!! I hope he is ok, was it a first tooth or second?
    Parcel sent yesterday with all sorts in. Working on vent hats at the mo then back to boobs;)

    Welcome to you crumblepie glad you decided to join us, you will love it here everyone is sooo friendly :j

    Wonder how Kathy is getting on, where she is and how much knitting she has done on the move.

    We are babysitting at the mo, both DGD's fed,washed,read to and in bed asleep,oo and Mothers day cards written out with xxxxx all over the place.
    I just love looking after them they are a delight, and I get lots of exercise. We played skittles tonight along the hall, no damage can be done out there when they get a bit, what shall I say....over-enthusiastic.....and its a nice size for a mini skittle alley ;)
    No knitting so far tonight but will get the needles out when I have finished on here.

    Off to make OH a :coffee:
    Night everyone

    maytaurus I have signed the petition as I too have ME and Fibro, thankyou for putting the link up. Unfortunately I don't know when to take it easy as when I am having a good spell I tend to carry on as normal. Sadly I pay the price for it as I have been doing the past week or so. I'm on rest due to having a hernia and unexplained stomach pains as well as high blood pressure..:mad: Not that it stops me doing things.. Although I did drive to Asda today to get the shopping and boy did I know it when I came back home. I think I should have got hubby to drive as he was with me..

    Quick question to others when I have a baby pattern that asks for 4ply can I use double knit as this is all I have at the moment? Or do I have to go on the beg and borrow for some more wool...lol


    :(Struggling financially :(

    :) Mortgage Free as of 20.9.17 :)

    Hi Maytaurus

    I've signed the petition & circulated details to some pals. Hope this helps.

    Hi natty68, you could adjust your pattern to allow for DK but its not straightforward. There are hundreds of free patterns available online here is a link to Maytaurus' summary post#964 hope it helps.

    What is the pattern for?

    luv
