    oh cr*p not too bad on the model, if she can keep it clutched shut at front, hand clamped to shoulder else it falls off ....if I would wear it, I would immediately get it caught on a something (apart from looking like a frilly lampshade ) would use MILES of yarn stand by for

    and I am particularly iimpressed by them would it be ok to post a picture of them... ....back in the day when we could buy LPs pressed for export, from the university bookstore. notes are in German/French/English. i liked to study to Herr Händel next i need to find a battery clockwork to fix in the middle on the label part of the LP. and hands for the front. the clock doesn't take much yarn, 100 + metres, two or three colours of sock yarn. good to use up bits. this is a practice, to make a few more for gifts. I can do this type of knitting easily other styles, not so much.

    and goli Here is my attempt at the clock face, per instructions stretched around a vinyl LP of which I still have a stack but no player. Since years, right? Grabbed one falling out of its sleeve. Then struggled with the wooden clips and the gathering thread

    stitching is not at all my forté but how I value something like that, especially made for me. I only just now had my hand on the picture Mackie, moving stuff to make room for stuff (eek ) again at the saying, in English - Now at It with A Thousand Men in our conversation at the time In German is it Jetzt mit tausend Männern dabei" maybe ? (you had told me. :forgot: ) anyway, a nice gift for family in the moment

    We were and to learning new things Yes, wrist warmers, pulse warmers, fingerless mitts The cast on with temporary thread usually is called provisional cast on. Handy little technique! Lots of pleasant knitting there, if using sock yarn I am knitting a clock-face right now. True! Started on a very long circular needle to get the first 12 stitches in a circle, and a few more rows plus increases outwards, 12-rayed, as for a tick-tock clock (also in sock yarn ) I keep messing up following the graph for the stitches. The mind of moi wanders...
  12. I don't follow too many else >>> scrolling for hours
  13. I am learning and worse, I forgot what the clever part was
  14. Yes. Really cool I had something to write that was so utterly clever . In any case, your reply was nice
  15. Mackie put another photo at Instagram and moi messed up moi's comment. Twice. instagram hath no edit button? In other excitement this morning my vehicle's engine stopped as we geared up a hill. ... i backed off the road, a good Samaritan called a tow truck for me (someone left her phone at home ) (someone is a dud ) We are home now, is in with the lads at the service garage. The tow truck driver thinks nibbled some essential wires
