Line,

Wow, I can't imagine how awful it is to have the cold for so long!  Surprised  Spring hasn't figured out it should be here where I am (the US), but at least we've been getting a few warmer days here and there!  Even your summers look a bit chilly.  Frown

I'm so sorry you encountered a technical issue.  In theory, the system should warn you before a message just disappears...anyway, I let Terry (Support) know about it, though obviously this particular instance can't be fixed.  Frown

How many years do you have to study to be a kindergarten teacher?  That must be a very demanding program.  I know people who teach here in the US, anywhere from elementary school up to college.  It's quite demanding and requires many years of study!

You've made so many nice things!  The elephants are adorable and the octopuses are as cute as they sound!  Love those blues you used in the ripple afghan.  The lamb is my fave of the toys!  Is that your pattern?

The garments are nice, too!  Smile  How amazing that on your first try at a garment, you made such a great sweater!  Kiss  (LOL, my first sweater wasn't half that nice!)  The bottom picture is what we'd call a cowl here.  That's pretty ingenious, as you're right, a scarf isn't good for children, who would just pull it off and drop it somewhere, sigh, but a cowl is a wonderful idea!  You should think about writing the pattern up and selling it...you could put it in our mall, if you'd like.  Smile  Can't say I've seen cowls for children, just adults, and the shaping on this one is lovely!  Kiss

So happy you shared your fantastic work - thank you so much!  Kiss

Cindy,

Ugh, this is the never ending winter, isn't it?!  Frown

How neat...I also taught myself to crochet years ago.  Smile  No YouTube videos (LOL, because there was no YouTube!), just books and magazines.  Things have sure changed, huh?!  Laughing

What a cool idea that your 5th grade teacher had, to teach you to knit with pencils!  It would definitely work, without an added expense of buying needles.  Smile

Wow, so are you getting paid to make the afghans for your family and friends, or do you make them for enjoyment?

Making afghans is a great way to pass the time productively, and especially on cold days.  Smile  And then you have an afghan in your lap to keep you warm as you work!  Smile  At least one advantage of the cold, cold winter is being able to work with warm yarns...  Wink

I'm sure the beneficiaries of your group's wonderful work are soooo thankful!  Kiss  What a lovely thing to do!  Kiss

Melanie,
Love that! Smile CADD seems exactly right.

Yes I'm going to work the hat in the round, I just think hats in particular don't look right when seamed.
I'm not using wool, I'm using acrylic. I was just wondering, in font, if the wool she recommends is a much lighter worsted or if there is a "stretch factor".

Yes TKS is a very tight stitch, which is why I use a larger hook. I really don't want to make a "bullet proof" scarf.

I'm like you, I change everything anyway. Wink I really should keep those patterns hidden until I'm ready to take the requests though.

I posted one FREE cross stitch pattern for Kindle for today...grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)
