Bias Knit Scarf- From 1983

This Bias Knit Scarf from the July 1983 issue was a super fun and easy knit!  Easy to remember stitch pattern, just varied enough to keep it interested, AND no ends to weave in! That’s right, NO ends! As you change colors you leave a tail…

Weekly Workbasket- May 28

I have had the best day! Earlier I took my son and two friends to a local school and randomly bumped into a local guy who is a Guinness World Record holder! He is on for something bike related and put on quite a show for…

Free Placemat Pattern- And it’s Not Broomstick Lace!

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…
