    Thumbs up Hemlock Ring Blanket DONE!

    I love this pattern (found here: http://theraineysisters.com/?cat=51). It's way less complicated than it looks. It took me about 3 weeks of very sporadic knitting. I'm only just now getting my knitting mojo back and I'm crediting this pattern for helping me find it




    I used about 1.5 skeins of LionBrand Fisherman's Wool in "oatmeal". In the pictures it looks grey, but it's more taupe colored. It's still wet from blocking too. Finished size is 48" wide.

    YM - at some point I am going to have to give this pattern a try because it does not look simple, looks very sophisticated. Congratulations - you did it!! Love the pictures!!

    Default Yankee Mom, I need you!!!

    Yankee Mom I need help! You've inspired me to pick up my needles and try this... and then I got to row33.

    33rd rnd: *O, k3, O, p and k in the next st, O, k3, O, k2, sl 1, k2 tog, psso, k2. Repeat from * around (136 sts).


    I had 2 stitches left over so I un-knitted the entire row and couldn't figure out where I went wrong so I thought I would ask you first.

    The boldface line is where I may have messed up. The way it looks to me is yarn over once (which puts the yarn in the front of the needles) then wrap the yarn around again to fully make that extra stitch.

    If I don't wrap it that second time, it seems that I've only pulled the yarn in front as if to purl and not make that extra stitch....

    I'm confused!!! Can you help me?

    Thank you so much for the inspiration and any help you can offer.

    When you do a yarnover before a purl stitch, yes, you have to bring the yarn in front again (twice total). Once for the yarn over and again for the purl.

    So you start the row with a yarn over, then knit 3, then yarn over (bringing the yarn to the front), then bring the yarn to the front again in order to purl the next stitch.

    If you view this video, first she shows how a yarn over is done followed by a knit stitch and about 40 seconds in she shows how a yarn over is done followed by a purl stitch. It should help you

    Thank you.... it means I did the pattern right but must have miscounted. It gives me hope to continue working on it this evening though. I am using a light pink/mauve boucle and it has a soft nubbly look but the patterns isn't really shining through just yet. I'm hoping after I finish and block it I can add it to a gift for the holiday pile and make another one.


    Thank you so much for your help.

    I put it on ME everytime I'm in my recliner

    It's super warm (100% wool). I often have to displace a cat in order to use it myself lol.
