Lovely Buttons from TheHickoryTree

Long story short:  I’m designing a sweater. I can’t show it to you just yet, because it is missing a sleeve…but I can show you the amazing buttons I ordered for it. I tried looking for wooden buttons at all of my local crafty places, and the big box stores.  Some places wanted more than […]

 Since I’m sure that everyone is  comfortable with Short Row and Stripe Sequences, why don’t we just cut to the end of Short Row Sequence #6. The Bind Off is pretty simple.  I carried the CC yarn up the side and used a cable cast on. Knit 2 normally, and then ssk, using up one […]

First is Shawl Edging Row 1.  The cast on isn’t […]
