Happy Mother's Day!!

SCN_0010

My mom & I with my kids in the summer of 1997.

Wishing all of the moms out there a very happy Mother's Day!!

I spent Mother's Day morning watching Anne Hanson's very comprehensive Craftsy Workshop on grafting. This free Craftsy knitting class covers the basics of grafting stockinette stitch all the way up through the ins and outs of grafting cable and lace projects. I think it's a class that knitters will turn to again, and again. Grafting is a useful technique for more than just the toes of socks. I grafted the center back of my Lonicera pattern so that the front edges were mirrored:

Lonicera 3

 

And I use grafts all the time on the underarms of seamless sweaters like Springtime in Virginia, Beach Street Park, Washington Square, and Andokides Jacket .

Head on over to Craftsy and check it out.

What a sweet photo of you all! Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Mother's Day and thanks for the tip about the Craftsy class. I have Lonicera in my library waiting in the wings. Every time I see it, I am reminded more and more about why it needs to become a part of my wardrobe.

Happy Mother's Day! Love the old photo of your three kids. They've grown so much over the years!
