View Full Version : Birthday present....

02-06-2011, 06:55 PM
I've had a lovely day today. It's my 66th birthday and I spent it with my hubby and my grandchildren. I got presents too - lots of them.
4 yards of fabric for my quilting,
8 balls of wool to knit.
So here's the problem....
The balls are
3 black - Superwool from Sirdar DK yarn 50 gs each
3 red - Superwash Wool from Lady Fair 50 g each - knitting worsted
2 white - Super Wool from Lady Fair 50 g each - knitting worsted
The question is - what can I knit with this?
Got any ideas...? :)
Please...? :think: Crossed Fingers
Pretty please....

Happy birthday!! Sounds like it was a wonderful one. This (http://petitepurls.com/Fall09/fall2009_ladybug.html) is a cute pattern for a little girl...maybe a granddaughter??

red, white and black just have to be colors for some sports team. Find it and make scarf or hats for the fans of those teams.

I had time to look up a few patterns. They are all worsted I think. I don't know your skill level or what you are really looking for though.

Wow! What a list! Thank you very much! I'm sure I'll find something here....
:yay: :happydance:

Thanks from me, also, Jan. I've got the yarn, now I have the patterns.

BTW, Tema is a very advanced knitter.

Oops. In that case I can probably come up with more advanced patterns if you're interested.

WOW! I would never call myself an advanced knitter. I used to knit many moons ago and made some nice stuff like Indian Sweaters and stuff like that.
But these days, I only knit plain things and have only just completed my first 2 sweaters in a long time. I've knit socks and continue to knit socks... nothing fancy at all. I'm expecting myself to get better at it all and then I will try some fancy stuff.
I have trouble reading most patterns, can't read charts at all, tho I used to do that when I was younger. I've forgotten so much... been ill too long, forgot so much...
I love to knit anything plain, that doesn't take much energy, and I like to alter patterns whenever I can without messing up the pattern I'm doing... mostly I use different coloured yarns.
The things you posted for me are just fine, Jan. My concentration isn't what it used to be... :)
