The Waterfall Bolero June 24, 2018

I am working on this new design, The Waterfall Bolero. It has cute angel wing sleeves, a nice textured lapel that drapes gracefully in front and a smooth back that dips to the waist. I have been playing with it for a couple of weeks, knitting and unraveling until I got what I liked. Now to simplify it and draft out the pattern. But I have a yarn sale today in my backyard, so it will have to wait until Monday or Tuesday, or Wednesday….

Summer Yarn Sales Begin Sunday!! June 15, 2018

I am famous for my backyard yarn sales.  Sure the passerbys see a sign that says, “Yarn Sale” by my driveway, but they read it as YARD Sale and come in to see what I have.  My demographics are knitters, crocheters, weavers and fiber enthusiasts who, although they don’t really need yarn, they really like yarn in all its forms to draw inspiration and ideas.  So starting on Sunday, come join the other avid fiber artists and bring your shopping bags.  I have metallics, boas, eyelash and all kinds of novelty yarns that you can’t find in stores today, plus all the basic types of yarn and of course, my designer cakes that I spin up from several strands.

When: Sundays starting June 17 through July 29, 9am to 3pm

Where: Hawthorne, CA – Follow the signs from El Segundo, Aviation or La Cienega

Ruched Scarf

Ruched Scarf

By Linda Jensen of

My Blue Heaven Knits

 

Bulky Machine T=8

Yarn: Newlon 2/12 or any light weight yarn (lace, sport, 2/14, etc.)

 

Directions:

Crochet Cast over 35 sts with 3 center sts Out Of Work

K 400 rws

Crochet Cast off, leaving a long tail.

Steam out.

You should have about 110-120” long by 11” wide of steamed scarf, which will end up being about 65-70” long and 10” wide when finished.

To finish, with wrong side facing you, and starting from the cast on edge, use a Size “H” crochet hook to twist 2 OOW strands under the cast on edge, to create a loop.  Next, pick up 3 OOW strands and pull through the loop.  Continue crocheting the 3 OOW strands up the center of the scarf to the top.  With the long cast off tail, weave it over to the last loop and secure it, then weave in the rest of the tail.

Here’s the Before picture after steaming out in Red, and the After picture in Blue.

May 2018 Seminar In San Diego May 7, 2018

Had a great time with some creative thinking knitters in San Diego this past weekend.  I hope everyone learn some tips along the way too.  Norman Koshak and crew from Newton’s Knits in Anaheim brought some great yarns and equipment to tempt even the most veteran knitters also – yeah, including myself.  Oh, such a beautiful display, we were kids in a candy store.

So, my husband was able to take some pictures on the second day while I was demonstrating the ins and outs of my new Perfect Plaid Jacket.  I didn’t notice the picture taking, I was too busy trying to keep my mind focused on the knitting.  I was so glad that they had a close up camera system set up so everyone could see my demos.  I am hoping that everyone who got my patterns will enjoy them.  I had 6 boxes of give-away magazines, books, video tapes and patterns for everyone to take with them.  My car was much lighter coming back home, so thank you San Diego Machine Knitting Guild for the wonderful weekend.  Keep knitting, keep creating and keep dreaming about all the beautiful knits you will be making.  See you next time!
