    Haven't had much time to post in here as things have been so busy. I am now in SW Michigan for the winter at my grandson'r request and am fortunate to have a 30 amp hookup spot in my daughter's yard, so I can stay comfortably in my rolling home.

    Hi, new to this group and I am a knitter now. I started with folk painting years ago, then found that I really wanted more texture in my colors and began weaving. Then moved on to quilting as my looms had become too involved to move around (military). Qui...  more

    I have a question. What is the purpose of knitted/crochet food? I just started learning to knit, and I see a lot of patterns for food. I'm not judging - just can't figure it out. Thanks!

      RitaB I know what you mean. I always crochet/knitted most of my life and always made clothing or other "usable" items. The food craze seems to me as being decorative for someone who is crazy about crochet or for pincushions. Just my opinion.

      Lucy and Jim That makes more sense than anything I thought of! :D

      Billie C I think most "food" is just a way to use up the last of a skein of yarn.

      Lucy and Jim That too could be true :P

      Barbara & Byron I think part of it also for kids to play house or store.  you see more of that kind of stuff in the toy section lately.  Soon it might be the only way kids will know what a store is. Hide 1 Reply

        Lucy and Jim I would have never thought of that  - I only have fur-babies.

    Thought this was cute online. Mine is somewhat different, of course. Tricky to find the space to sew multiple days in a mh.

    Chainmaille necklaces. Oh, and a Buffalo Turquoise pendant (called such, but it's technically not turquoise since there's no copper in it. The mines are closed from what I was told, so the stone is somewhat rare. I've no clue if that's true or not, though).

      RitaB I'm not an expert but that Buffalo Turquoise could be Howlite. This is a whitish stone with grey or black streaks. This has long be used to imitate turquoise by dying it blue or green. That chain mail is so intricate, it's the most beautiful chains I've ever seen
    • Carneyval Vagabonds
      Carneyval Vagabonds thanks! they are fun to make. kind of mindless work once you get the pattern down, but fun to do when I just can't look at the computer for another moment, hehehe. Most of the stuff called "White Turquoise" is actually one of two substances called Ho...  more Hide 2 Replies

        RitaB Thank you for giving me the info on the White Buffalo Turquoise. I had never heard of it before.
      • Carneyval Vagabonds
        Melody & David Twigg good information, I like RitaB had never heard of it before, and your chainmaille is magnificent, I am trying to learn how to do it.

    • 2 Hearts & 2 Wheels
      bnejedlo14 In my opinion, if you knit or crochet, Ravelry is THE PLACE to find your pattern. You can create a free profile, then add your stash yarns, search for any pattern you can think of, and then get links to the pattern. You can create projects, and update the...  more Hide 1 Reply

        2 Hearts & 2 Wheels I've actually been selling my patterns on Ravelry for the last month. I'd been trying to sell finished products on Etsy for the last year with no results. Not a fan of Etsy at all, too easy to get buried in the pile. I'm having much better luck on Ravelry.

    Last night I finished this lap blanket! I love the colors! I think I'll add a flannel backing to it to make it extra cozy! Pattern name is Persian Tiles and is available on Ravelry.
