After reading Luci's blog the other day it got me thinking about knitting again. I have hand and machine knitted for many years. I did that before I came to do Patchwork & Quilting. A couple of years ago I decided to clear out the garage of all my yarns. Most of them were coned yarns but since I hadn't used my knitting machines for many years I decided to clear out. I still have the machines but the yarn has a shelf life and so I donated it to the local knitting club.

When I bought my Embellisher I chose some nice yarns as well. Here they are. They will knit up beautifully I think.

These are gorgeous. Louisa Harding's Kimono Ribbon. My best friend Marion gave me them for my birthday earlier this year. I am not sure what I will do with these perhaps include them with something else. They are so lovely it seems a pity to use them!

My knitting needles were in the loft but as luck would have it DH was up there this morning and brought them down for me. Now I have no excuse not to get started.

Hi Carol

Like you need an excuse. HAH!
Miss busy all the. LOL

Love the Kimono ribbon, lucky you to get such a nice present.

Hi Tonniece,

Thank for dropping by. I can sit in the evening and knit. DH thinks it's lovely and relaxing hearing the click click of the knitting needles. Not that I have done any for years!

Wow, Carol, those yarns are pretty! I am especially enamored by the ribbon yarns :) Now I can hardly wait to see what you'll make.

I have knitted since I was very young. Both my Grandmother and my mother were knitters. I do enjoy it although I haven't knitted for a while. P&Q has taken over.


I made a start with the ribbon and it does knit up beautifully.
