Stitches.... Some I like and some I don't

Just a little ramble today. Everyday, I think about stitch patterns. New patterns for my designs; or what will be this month's Stitch DC blanket pattern stitch; or someone needs help with a stitch pattern. I can handle all these questions. I love to try new stitch patterns. I have a few sites that I check out for new ideas like VOGUE KNITTING or reference books such the HARMONY GUIDES or classic Barbara Walker TREASURIES.

Last night, I learned a new stitch. It was a multiple of 4. After working them for many hours last night, I hope I never have to do it again. It took 2 doctors and many nurses. No knitting needles were involved. Cole had a fall at the house and needed 4 stitches just below the eye. He was a trooper at the emergency room. Alan brought him in all bloody but my little guy was smiling and happy. It was until the doctors (who were all great!) got close that he became upset and showed how loud he could be.

So thanks everyone about Wednesday's late night that was cut a little short. I also missed the fedex drop off for a new design project. That will go out today instead. If I missed anything else, I'm sorry. We have a doctor's appointment this morning at 11 am and then I'll be around to post out STASH CLUB for JUNE.

Also, just a reminder, this weekend at Stitch DC Capitol Hill...
1. Saturday-- FREE Fair Isle Along from 1 to 3:30
2. Sunday -- 2008 FREE Blanket Craft Along -- I'm working on the stitches for JUNE.
3. And maybe something more at Capitol Hill. More news tomorrow.
