Love the pumpkins and the very cute young man! You are so creative! Your blog is very good--even for one who hasn't picked up a needle in years.

Hi aunt Joanie! How are you guys doing? I hope well see you over the holidays -- maybe New Years? Say hi to Doug and the girls for us!



It's very cool! How did he get so big already?

Sarah Fama

I know -- its crazy how fast these kids grow! :)


He is all grown up!

I use VC for blankets for kids. It's soft and durable. I have made a baby sweater with it and then used the steam from an iron to steam block it. It kills the acrylic and gives it such a great drape and makes it even softer.

Btw, I was able to pick up a copy of Yarn Forward at Michaels over the weekend and I can't wait to make your shawl! I have a skein of Plucky Knitter Lace that is 700 yards. Do you think I could get away with that amount?

Sarah Fama

I know, they grow up so fast! Im pretty sure that 700 yards will be enough -- I think I used only about half of the second skein of Malabrigo Lace, and thats only 470 yards/skein. You can just work the last chart until you run out of yarn, basically. Cant wait to see how it turns out!

love your Mayville Cardigan - I saw a picture of it on Knitting Daily. Do you share your patterns and if so, can you send it to me?? Thanks! Gail

Sarah Fama

Hi Gail, glad you like the pattern! It was published in the most recent issue of Knitscene, which is still on newsstands -- I'm on vacation in Australia right now, but when I left a week ago, my local Barnes & Noble still had copies, though it seemed like a lot of yarn shops had sold out.
