HELP ladies..... My little grandaughter has asked for a baby unicorn and I have crocheted picture 1.

Then she mentioned, (over phone), that it has little wings?!!!!!!!! HELP. I said baby unicorns don't have wings but she assured me they do! So I was in a quandry.

I found tis (second picture) on Pinterest and I was going to do just the wings and sew them on first picture.. Despite being member of Pinterest I cannot get the bloomin' pattern for the wings.

Can anybody help please. ...

Mrs Badknee I think your coverlets are absolutely beautiful. Can you remind me of the pattern you used initially. I was looking at the CAL mentioned by Puddleduck above .and wondered whether this was the time to start a project like this. I know I made notes of the various medallion type projects - those with lots of colours - but life got in the way and I've lost/forgotten the names.

I'm not sure if I will make this blanket or not at the moment. I need to check how much yarn I have as I don't want to buy more until I have used up quite a lot of my stash. And I have another project to finish plus Grandson would like a winter sweater.

Puddleduck I have joined the group and printed the introduction etc. I have the right Christmassy colours but on knitting machine cones so 4ply red is the thickest I have. I don't have any double knit left so I'll look out for other possible patterns suitable for doubling (or trebling) threads.

Not been doing any crafting for a while as we have been busy since having the garage converted.
Building inspector came this morning and signed off for building control.
We are nearly there now just the wood flooring to lay .
I‘m looking forward to getting my sewing machine and crafting materials out.:giggle:
And I now also have a functioning utility room.

You could double or triple and just use a bigger hook. The blanket will come out larger but as it's a blanket that doesn't matter!

If you're not sure if you have enough yarn, look for a Top-down pattern so the only thing you sacrifice if you run out is the length.

have never done a top down, like raglans as I have narrow shoulders and like the piece I am knitting to get smaller not bigger ;) will keep it in mind but I usually have loads left over, henc the crochet square that now is big enough for a bed.
It is also in the eaves but I can't reach it and have done myself an injury trying. thought it was soft tissue but seems to be my ribs ouch. ok so long as don't need to cough rarely go for more than a couple of hours without coughing due to my asthma.

At the moment I am mostly doing top down with yokes. It is such a relief when you divide the work for sleeves and body but you feel you have achieved something by that point. I use a circular needle and almost every pattern I have can be converted to top down and circular - raglan shaping works really well with that method.

Ouch. If not better in a day or two please get you GP or A&E to have a look.

I got a message via James from his friends in the USA where the bunny ear hats and the variegated baby cardigan went;

"we had an amazing package arrive and it was the BESTEST EVER! First off, cutest cardi I have seen and second Louise bunny hats!!!!. Thank you so much they were a wonderful surprise. Also the quality of them is insane!"

I had a bit of dust in my eye when I read it.

When I eventually (spring probably) finish my ever growing hexagons blanket - how shall I ever wash it - or more to the point, dry it.
I tumble dry mine until just damp and then dry flat - even if it has to be doubled and refolded a few times until fully dry. In the summer they go out on the grass (laid flat and on an old sheet) to dry.

Just been to buy some buttons for the cardigan I am knitting, almost cost as much as the yarn. Wonder if my sister has mum's old button tin. don't like buying stuff from charity shops for the buttons, as it is depriving someone of a useful garment.

Thank you. We didnt Replace the tumble drier as an experiment about ten years ago and don’t miss it - until I wondered about the larger crochet item 🙄.

I have my late husband’s aunts button tin some of them are beautiful.
The tin is old and battered so she must have had it a long time I must have had it well over 20 years.
