"Winter of Textured Knits" KAL
May 2009 Gathering #1

Whoa! You knitters are getting too enthusiastic! LOL Any more of this and I'll have to limit the "Show and Tell" [or Chantelle as Susan so nicely puts it!]

So, here is this month's gathering of textures [not all knitting - oh my!!] In the interest of fairness, the pictures are presented in the order of the file names I gave them after I cropped them! You will see them over three exciting days: there are way too many photos for one viewing!!

Firstly, in cold Canberra, Bells is keeping someone special warm. I know its lace but there's garter stitch in there too!

And some more garter stitch from the same post:

Then there's this photo Bells took of a much larger gift for another someone special. Thanks to the Raveller who helped her finish it!

And look at this gorgeous texture [which also includes some lace].

And finally, something warm [in colour and yarn] for this winter:

And in chilly rural Victoria, Carol has stopped digi-scrapping [her layouts are beautiful] long enough to contribute these to winter warming [which team does her someone special support?]

Over in the USA, where winter [we hope] is a distant memory Delighted Hands has been crafting all sorts of goodies, including this:

On the northern side of the beautiful city of Sydney, Jan's been playing with some stitches and knitting up some samples.

Jan has been busy knitting for charity. My cropping doesn't do the work justice but I didn't want to give too much away!

I love the ridge of texture along the line of eyelets!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the next Gathering!


  1. You have organized us beautifully! Good job!

  2. Ooh, gorgeous textures, and I love the pictures :)

  3. Thanks for finding these, Lynne. I've been away and also had major family problems this week. Somewhat distracted, although the family problems are not directly mine. One could never guess that the hat is actually pale blue! I need to find a better background for those colours.

  4. ha! Look at all my stuff that qualifies! Yay, I'm so happy to see you included my stuff amongst all the other great work!


Hi. Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to reading your comment.
I like to answer comments; if you are "no-reply blogger" I will try my best to get back to you on your blog! I'm not on FaceBook so I can't contact you there!
