Few things are impossible to diligence and skill.
Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
My daughter, Ellen, hand spun two and a half pounds of Marbled Moorit (Icelandic-Merino-Alpaca blend) roving that she purchased from Tongue River Farm. Then she knit this poncho on US size 9 needles. Pictured here with her son, Owain, Ellen is not only diligent and skillful, she also gives the word perseverence a whole new meaning. I’m proud of you, Ellen.
Hi, I stumbled on to your blog. It is very nice. I was doing a google search for knitting in Columbus. I recently cleaned out about 25 knitting magazines from 1983-1994, and about the same number of xeroxed knitting patterns for all manner of things. I was going to recycle all this paper, but my boyfriend suggested that I donate them. Do you know any kind of place that would take these items? I asked our local knitting store (Knitter’s Mercantile, in fact) and they suggested a nursing home. I haven’t had any luck yet. Any suggestions?
