Here’s a great idea from Inspiration Realisation – make your own extra chunky yarn using your French knitting! Think I'd need one of spools where you can just turn the handle...could be awhile otherwise.  photo blogfrenchknittingchunkyyarn_zps5hdybiov.jpg

I’ve been looking for extra chunky yarn and can tell you it’s difficult to source over here, and it’s expensive….so…now...a Giganto Rug! Look at those needles!

Or get one already made up in gorgeous wool from Lily and Peabody!  photo blogfrenchknittingrug_zps1o5zrsai.jpg

Everybody needs a little ditty to knit by and this is a classic.

Hi Chrisiy. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I've missed you. Nice post today. I used to knit as a child, or at least started to learn. But I've nothin like that since. It's amazing how creative people can be.
Hope you are well.

This is absolutely gorgeous and so impressive. Not every day that you see a beautiful creation like this. I love knitting and I always want to do more of it but never know what to make.

Talk about a flashback to my youth. I made miles of this stuff as a kid but never knew what to do with it!
Hope all is well in your world.

I love the “snake” in the tree, but it must have been a drag getting it out without destroying it. I’m recommending to each of you that you guys check out one another’s blogs: http://thesmallgodsshallbemyjudge.blogspot.com
