I think the JD is totally appropriate. Sounds like you do have a fun job! We did get hit by the snow and cold recently. Last Wed. it was -14 on my drive to work (fortunately only at 10-15 minute drive). Hope you have a wonderful holiday season as well. I plan to enjoy family and, after the rush this week and next, relax a knit some. Jeanne

You asked me a few weeks about my felted hearts. The pattern is free on the Mochi Mochi blog. I think it was Kate that mentioned in one of the podcast about how she likes to follow that site. They are fast and easy to make and then just need a little needle felting to make each one special.

Did you ever visit Loopville in Homburg Square when you lived in Knoxville? Jinka taught me to knit and felt and I am completed addicted Judy Sumner, who wrote "Knitted Socks East to West" is getting ready to begin a sock class that I hope I can attend. The next couple of weeks are so busy with finals coming!

Awesome! What section of Knoxville did you live? We live in the Bearden area. The leaves are gorgeous right now, but are falling fast because of all the rain! I'll try to post a picture for you soon!

Thanks for letting me know where to find that pattern. Once you told me the name, I know I've seen it before in the patterns section, but I like your version better, I just love the green. I think it is just the right size. Just around the belt section gives a nice clean line when they wear it. I live on the west side of Tennessee, close to the Mississippi. More fields and such than any mountains, but we are just starting to get the reds of the fall colors. I think this is going to be a particularly pretty season.

Thanks for the comment on the shawl/veil. Knitting lace, especially in the round, was scary at first. I started off crocheting, too, but learned to knit less than a year ago. So much fun! The lace is pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

By the way, I absolutely love the green vest cardigan in your pictures. Is there a pattern for it? If so, I would love a copy. It looks great!

Hi Amy,
Thank you, yes I used a pattern for my slippers, I will type it up and post it for you later, if you like.

I started Carmen on 9/18 and finished her (no clothes) on 10/12. In that time I worked on her from 1-3 hours a day for 14 days. Her undies took me 2 days & I added a little shaping to match the "booty curve" but that wasn't much really. Today is the 3rd day for her dress & I'm just short of 3" on the skirt. Don't know if this helps you, but you could most likely get a set with an outfit each done by Christmas, but you'd better start soon! Good luck & let me know if you have more questions :)

You could get some practice with the Mystery Kal. It is a colorwork piece but I don't know what it is yet. Melissa won't tell. HEHE

Thanks, Amy. I'll try to find the pictures of the murloc hat. That must have been the ones my son saw at Blizzcon. If you work up a pattern, I'd be glad to buy a copy from you and if I get one together, I'll send you a copy.

Thanks, Amy. That's not cheating....just taking advantage of resources. :>)

Thank you for the sweet comment. The Fun Fur actually went through the wash quite well. Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

Thank you for your sweet comment about my bag. I made it for a friends birthday. It was my first attempt at a felted bag. There are no pockets inside but there could have been. The next bag I make I plan to have a few pockets.

I kinda made up the snow suit pattern starting with a sweater. I've made 2 now - one after comments from my daughter about how it worked out on an active grandson. The second one has opening all the way down one leg for easier access and the mittens and booties are attached with a stretchy I-cord.
