YARN ALONG







getting into knitting Irish scarfs, using yarn from Ireland. and oh that cabling….confusing, beautiful, can’t get enough, be still my heart. this Irish yarn and knitting has be thinking of my grandmother, who grew up in Ireland and if not in the kitchen cooking was in her mission oak rocking chair knitting mitts, scarfs and hats for her 54 grandchildren. talk about endless knitting. I love the history of cable knitting and have been enjoying this book
i have also been hooked, (addicted) to sewing up these fun clothesline baskets. So meditative for me, (finished in a couple of hours), and when finished, i have an amazing yarn basket…..what more could i ask for in a project.
thanks ginny for yarn along

So glad you linked to your tutorial on making the rope baskets. Those look wonderful and you make it look so easy. I hope to try making one someday.

Your knits look lovely, too. :^)
