Pretty darn cool....and pretty.  :)
 
What do you do on your morning commute? This woman crocheted her own wedding dress that only costs $30. And it is absolutely gorgeous!
Chi Krneta made a crochet gown for her wedding dress. She worked on it everyday during her bus ride for five months and it only cost her $30.

Soooo....Men in crochet pants is making the rounds on the internets. Welp, recently, I found this....

We are proud to present our new Club Geluk's Craftsmen calendar: Darn! Men with yarn. We made this calendar in response to the pin up calendars you see in automobile repair shops: pin up girls dragging around tires and other auto parts while showing their sweaty bodies. So we thought: our textiles and craft shop, which is obvious more of a feminine domain, should have the exact opposite! Therefore, seven sexy men feature our calendar with seven s...

I usually just Google pattern stitches and find something I like and do that for the blanket. But chunky weight does make it go faster :)

So I decided to make the following hat, and one of the beginning steps is: 

"fold at purl round (with knit side facing and purl
side inside the double blending), pick up first st
from cast on edge and k together with live st, repeat
this for making a double edging of hat"

I am super new to this folding thing. Someone be able to explain in simpler terms? Am i literally folding and knitting into the fold?

Ok +Christina Blount Presnell here is me modeling the February Girl cardigan.

Gave this as a gift. Little mistakes here and there but overall, I am pleased with how it turned out. My MIL seemed to like it.

11 teeth on the Hitchhiker done....and need to rip back. Possibly frog the whole thing. I have a couple dropped stitches and I have 1 row cast off on the wrong side.

Lesson learned: Never knit under the influence of RuPaul's drag race. So awesomely distracting. *sigh
