    Hi!
    Thank you for a well written and lovely blog.

    Now that I have plied you with compliments, perhaps you have a moment to offer a recommendation?

    I am desperate for a DK light worsted cardigan pattern for a plus sized girl. Oh help.

    I wonder when Rowan will figure out that there are some lovely knitters who have well endowed chests? Hmmm…

    Thanks again for the fun.

    Hey, Glenna—Cool blog!!! And thanks so much for the knitting lesson on Monday evening. You’ve inspired me to start knitting again (it’s been a few months…). I’ve got several requests for socks and so that’s where I’ll start. I’ve got lotsa sock yarn and will take a look at some of your patterns. :-)

    Cheers,

    Laurie

    Hello! just discovered your great site. You obviously are an excellent knitter. I am sort of a beginner, and i am wondering if you have a simple hat pattern..the kind that makes a little turned edge and then you decrease at the top and pull the yarn tight. I made two for my grandchild and can’t locate the pattern. I would like to use my yarn stash to make hats for homeless people I see on the street. A fisherman’s style with the ribbed turned up edge would also work. I know you are busy but I can’t think of anyone else to ask. Many thank, in advance. Blessings, Marilyn in Highlands, NC

  19. marilyn underhill

    By the way, my email is dmunderhill@gmail.com if anyone can help me with the above request for a simple hat pattern. Blessings, Marilyn

    Basic Black

    I think there’s a mistake on size 2 (35″ 89cm) on the sleeves.

    Cap shaping: BO 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows-68sts.

    Then if you decrease 2 sts on each RS row 1+9 =10 times,
    does not equal 52sts (=58sts).
    Should I go down to 52 or 58 sts here?

    Lovely pattern by the way.

    Thanks

  25. This is a gorgeous blog, so well-written and fun to read, and your color choices resonate with me. Not to mention how inspiring your designs are. I’ve written up a short review of your blog on my website, hope it gets you some visitors!

    Wonderful to find another Canadian knitter online!! I’m up North near Sault Ste. Marie – and we have NO yarn shops at all. Guess I’ll have to travel to Sudbury or Toronto.

    I’ve re-started knitting after several years of ‘mothering’, and I’m really enjoying it all–cableing, hats, and my newest challenge would be a sweater.

    Thanks for your blog – I sure need it!!!!!!

  27. The Brennan Cardigan just jumped up high in my “to do” list. Great patterns!!

  28. Sheree

    I just happened to stumble acoss your site… and you are amazing… I have picked up knitting once again to get as comfortable with the needles as I have been all of my life with the hook. You inspire me!

    I have found that people either have the artistic eye for a pattern and the mating of the yarn, or they do not.. you my dear are an artist. You aren’t so bad at the photography either! :)

    Thank you so much for sharing you world!

  29. Thank you so much for sharing you world!

    Hang in there, Glenna…

    I’m so happy to have found you today – I’m another Canadian knitter too…

    Your patterns are really beautiful – thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous gifts with us.

    During times like these – we all need as much beauty as we can to focus on. I truly believe that by descending into the horrors – we only expand them.

    Thank you for offering to send the proceeds from your patterns to our brothers and sisters in Japan…our loving thoughts never leave them these days…

    All the best to you,
    Sera

  31. Hi Sera

    Thank you very much (a bit belatedly)! It is indeed reassuring to have knitting around in times like these. I’m glad you stopped by. I hope there will be plenty more good blog food for thought, to come.

    Happy knitting, Glenna

    I am searching for a pattern, but don’t know what to look for. Recently I’ve seen sweaters everywhere that look like they are essentially 2 rectangles sewn together on the shoulders which makes a boat neck and seams sewn up the side about half way which makes sort of raglan sleeves (without the lower part of the sleeve). They are very loose fitting and could be worn over turtle necks or long sleeve tees. Anyone know of a pattern for this?

  35. Kellie

    I am new to knitting and use a round loom. I’m looking for a pattern for a “scrooge” style hat that I can make using the round loom. I looked at the scrooge/cratchit pattern shown on this site but it is not for loom knitting and I don’t know how to translate it. Can anyone help. I want to make it for a Christmas gift.

  36. carole

    How do you teach someone who is oppisate of the way you knit? At the present time I am teaching a right handed person and I knit left handed due to cerebral Pasy and I knit with one hand.
