  1. Hi, I am having trouble understanding the i-cord buttonhole band on the Garter Yoke Baby Cardi pattern. Sweater is finished and I want to do the i-cord buttonhole band but am not understanding the instruction.

  2. I’m starting the falling snow stocking, which is definitely the most difficult knitting project I’ve ever tried (and the first sock). Is this project being knit in the round or knit flat on the circular needles? Thank you.

  3. Glad you like it!

    For my stocking, I did line it with a fabric liner. I just traced the outline of the stocking on a folded piece of fabric, cut 2 pieces and sewed them together (leaving the top open, obviously). Then I added an I-cord loop with a length of cording threaded through the center and sewed the whole thing (cording and I-cord) between the knit stocking and the liner at the cuff. That way the knit loop and stocking doesn’t need to fully support the contents, the liner does the heavy lifting.

  4. Hi!
    Love your Santa hat and the stockings I saw on Ravelry.
    I knitted very similar stockings years ago and never got
    around to lining them. Any ideas?
    I got some muslin and I thought I would just sew together
    a boot-shped piece and then sew it to the cuff backwards (if
    you know what I mean – inside-out, I guess). Then, push the
    boot down into the stocking (hope that makes sense)
    Did you line yours? Mine get too warped without a lining.
    Thanks & Happy Holidays!

  5. It’s been a while since I knit the stocking, but it seems like the yarn ending up in the middle of the heel flap makes sense. Honestly, I can’t remember though. I probably just floated the yarn to the edge. Since I lined the stocking I wasn’t really concerned with long floats. Sorry for the meager response.

  6. Thank you so much for the great falling snowflake stocking pattern. I have really enjoyed knitting it thus far and hope to have a pictures posted to ravelry soon. I have however hit a problem and it is probably me needing clarification. When you move on to the heel flap and you pick up the stitches for the gusset you say that your mc is patiently waiting for you; mine is in the middle of the heel flap. I am not sure where I went wrong. am I suppose to re-number my needles (I knit it on dpns). i’m confused and need a little guidance. please help.

  7. Hi, thank you so much for your Garter Strip Baby Socks pattern. I am making socks for needy children in my community (Longueuil, Québec, Canada) and sometime, I just get bored to do simple socks in st stitch. You have two very cute boys!

    Many thanks!

  8. Pretty cool post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say
    that I have really liked reading your blog posts. Anyway
    I’ll be subscribing to your blog and I hope you post again soon!

  9. Female fashion models who work with the designers throughout the season are also in the competition. Each week, as the number of designers dwindle, the number of models are also reduced, with one model remaining at the end. Models are randomly pre-assigned to a designer during the first challenge, and from the second challenge onwards, the designers will have an opportunity to pick the model they wish to work with. This usually happens during the start of every episode save for the first, with the winner of the previous challenge receiving first pick, and the other designers picking models in order through host Klum’s random draw of large red shirt buttons with their names stored in a black velvet bag. Though, there are times when only the winning designer will be given the choice to pick with the following choices: either keep his or her previous model, take the losing designer’s model Project Runway from the last challenge, or switch models with another competing designer

  10. I have tried making your Christmas stocking twice now. I love the pattern but there is an error after the heel is done. There is one extra stitch and I am not sure where to delete it, having tried twice, have improvised but mine does not look as neat and trim as yours, what am I doing wrong, or how did you do yours? Thank you

  11. Your patterns are really lovely. Hmm – wonder if I’ll have enough time to make your stocking before Christmas! Thanks so much for offering these to the knitting community.

  12. Lovely patterns and blog. Thanks for the journey. I am passing them on to my sister, who is due to be a grandmother for the first time in July.
