Stitch Pattern Week 12 & Heartfelt Shout-outs to Amazing Bloggers!! Seriously, My Faith in Humanity Has Been Restored!


I sincerely hope that my good mood is infectious, I want to spread the love! Something rather amazing happened during this week stitch pattern, I am still left dumbfounded by it. The pattern…hold on, let me catch my breath, was totally readable! That’s right friends and neighbors, even my great-grandmother seemed to want my week to go as smoothly as possible. So, with bated breath I present Stitch Pattern Week 12 for your viewing pleasure!

˜ The Knotted Rib Stitch˜

Oh GG, you have made this heavenly stitch so simple. Wish you were here to share the glory that is this pattern!

  • cor p2ktwice p4 end by two – Row 1: (RS) p2, *K front and back, p4*; end K front and back, p2. ( I don’t know if it is the fact that I have spent 12 weeks reading your work GG, but this was by far the most informative you’ve ever been!)
  • k2 pjoin k4 end by two – Row 2: (WS) K2, *p2tog, k4: rep rom* ending P2tog, K2 (Okay, the pjoin was new, but it made since that if I increased in the first row, I had to decrease in the second. Thank you GG, The perfect topper to this week!)

→ Shout It From the Rooftops!! ←

First shout out goes to Yarnycakes for supplying me with incredible sock yarn to start working on my Beekeeper’s Quilt. I could stare at this yarn all day long, I am actually afraid to work with it, it’s so perfect just the way it is! This was my last purchase coming from Etsy and boy-howdy did it end on a good note! Seriously, check out her store – I don’t think I could be more satisfied with the purchases I’ve made from Etsy if they had come with chocolate and a masseuse!

My second shout out is more of a sincere thank you to someone. My grandfather used to say that there was still magic in this world – but the magic came from either 1) Nature or 2) The inherent kindness that still lives within people. This magic came from the latter.

Lollyknits has done something incredibly kind, incredibly gracious and incredibly unexpected. When I posted that my husband was losing his job and I was losing my mind, she immediately contacted me with her surefire ways to keep your head on your shoulders. The message, all on it’s own, was incredibly reassuring and quite comforting. Lolly decided to take it a step further though. She sent me, for free, my first spindle and fiber to spin. She said that it helped her relax, and that might be just what I need right now.

Can you believe this? Someone I have been talking to through our blogs for only 12 weeks sent me a package of fiber/spindle goodness out of the kindness of her own heart. I am taken aback, still not sure how to fully understand that there is still magic in this world. I don’t know how to say thank you enough for her kindness – but also in helping to remind me that there are people in the world that can reignite your belief in magic, thus restoring your faith in humanity.

I want to end on that note, the best note to start a weekend on I believe. Just remember friends and neighbors – life is full of magic.

    The picture of you hugging your yarn made me laugh. There have been numerous times I’ve wanted to do that!

    I’ve been drooling over Yarnycake’s yarn. Especially the new tonal stuff. I can’t wait to see it knitted up!

    I can’t wait to get advanced enough to be able to try these stitches!
    One thing I love about being a part of the crafting community is that everyone is so nice and helpful and awesome in general. And this world could always use some magic.

    The new stitch looks great, nice to hear the pattern was readable. Sound like the universe doesn’t want you to give up just yet!

      *CLAPPING*!! So glad you like it! The quilt is one of those things that can keep an avid knitter occupied into old age- depending on the size. Stephanie Dosen may be an genius, I just haven’t figured out if it is the good genius or evil genius 😉

    It’s so lovely to read that there is kindness going around still…I don’t think there’s enough of it in our world today, but I’m very happy for you that you received a lovely package from a fellow blogger 🙂

      It was truly wonderful, I really am still flabbergasted by the whole thing to be honest. Now I just have to learn how to spin to do her justice!

    I’m so glad you like it!!!! I was a little worried about the colors, I like them, but that doesn’t mean they’re everyone’s cup of tea. I’m so excited to see what you’re going to make with the fiber, and I’m happy that it found such a good new home with you 🙂
