Stockinette

Last month I started on a sweater from the October/November 1992 issue. It’s a fine sweater, just a basic cardigan, and I’m hoping to finish it for my neice.  It has several elements of design that I don’t care for, pieces, smallish needles, and row after…

October/November ’92 Wrap-Up

Well, I’ve done it, I’ve finished the first issue! There were a few more things I could have done, and I do hope to do them for future issues, but sadly that issue left me a bit underwhelmed. I was stuck in a tight spot because…

Stockings

As I write this it’s the Saturday before Halloween (the post is scheduled to show up in a few days, so it’ll be after Halloween when you read this.) My son sat at the table carving a pumpkin, and I sat on the couch knitting Christmas…

Two Words- Instant, Decaf

I’m not a coffee drinker, I’m a coffee guzzler. It’s true. I can easily drink a pot, or more, a day. There is not a single time you could offer me coffee and I’d say “no.” I don’t get the jitters, I don’t get withdrawal headaches,…

Spaghetti Fritatta 

The October/November 1992 issue features surprisingly few recipes, but I was intrigued by the spaghetti fritatta.  It features egg, mozzarella, parmesan, bacon, and the main ingredient cooked spaghetti. The great benefit to this is how impossible it seems to be to make the right amount of…

October/November 1992

And it begins! Here’s my first issue to play with!  Issue: October/November 1992 How it was chosen: Random Number Generator. Entered the range of years I have in my collection, then chose the nearest year that I had a November issue. In this case it worked…

Casting On

Now that I finished the potholder I’m moving on already! This Issue (October/November 1992) has a little girls sweater. The sweater pattern has a duplicate stitch pattern of reindeer and a design. I’m not really into it. I think the design would still be cute on…

Placemats

One of the top patterns I wanted to do this month (October/November 1992) was the placemats. Not because we actually use placemats, we don’t, but it seemed quick, easy, and we do love a table centerpiece. I decided to make one using cotton yarn so that…

Potholders

This particular issue (October/November 1992) didn’t have much that inspired me to dig in and craft, but there were a few useful things. One of them was these potholders.  My family uses amazing amounts of potholders, I don’t really know why, but we do. So I…
