Kris Kringle

Spring has come with a bang this morning. The sun is shining, showing up all that needs a spring clean, guess what I’m going to be doing with the remainder of my week lol. The daffodils are starting to peek though in gardens and its even time to start contemplating giving the grass its first cut of the year !

On the stitching front I’ve come up with a rotation of such for projects I want to do. This week I am working on Prairie Schooler Kris Kringle, this is this months theme a licious piece and my ornament for the month.

When the week is over I will then give my Elizabeth Simon piece a week and then after that my turtle trot sal pieces a turn.

I’m going to give this a go and see how it works out, the rotation may need tweaking but hopefully it will see some progress on my stitching pieces. Updates on my stitching are going to happen every Tuesday if your looking for that specific update.

This is where this months Kris Kringle is at the moment.

In other stitching news I’ve had the desire to design a bookmark. I’ve had a quotation for some time wandering (that’s a hint lol ) round in my mind and I’ve decided to design it out into bookmark form. Its getting close to the stage for me to test stitch it and that’s exciting ! I can’t wait to see if what I’ve worked out on paper fits into bookmark form and if the whole thing appears before me like it does in my head.

    Would you please answer a question for me? If a person doesn't know how to knit and doesn't personally know anyone that could teach them – how would that person get started? Would a dishcloth be easy enough project to get started with? I really want socks but that must be complicated. How did you learn to knit? Thank you so much. Any tip or advice you could give would be appreciated.

    We had one of those lovely sunny days this past week too, but it was just a peak. Your Kris Kringle is coming along nicely and the colors are wonderful. I look forward to seeing your bookmark design. Happy Stitching!

    To Anonymous:You can either invest in a learn how to knit knitting book and start fom there or do you have a yarn store or craft store near you that's accessible? You can take lessons.YouTube is very helpful. I would recommend that you practice the knit stitch first. Then get purling under your belt. Then yes, dishcloths are a great start once you master the two basic stitches.

    Ruth, I think you have an excellent idea of how to rotate through your stitchery projects. I can't wait to see more of your bookmark design.
