Just a quick note to let y’all in on the joys of ADD…
Which is aggravated by the fact that the store, from which I was going to purchase the Size 4 needles for the blanket, moved and won’t re-open for business for a few more days.
On the bright side (pun intended, you’ll see) the sugar cane yarn arrived and the color is called “banana”, a rather warm yellow. However, am curious to see how it behaves when hand washed… (forgot to look up reviews…)
Also got sidetracked with a Niebling oval doily that I’ve looked at it for years thinking that its border would be wonderful for a wedding dress…
but then, fooling around on Ravelry, I discovered the “puzzle/Tantric” sweater.
Hope to finish charting the oval doily tonite… wish I had ordered the needles on line…trying to resist using Size 5’s because the sugar cane is noticeably thicker than the 14/4 linen I used for the group cover blanket…
On the left side of the page under “Frau und Mutter”, there are four “new” patterns added; the rest of the Meyers, except for some A4 sizes have been added.
Am now off to anticipate knitting the sugar cane yarn I ordered for one of the Glockenblume Baby Blankets…
Today I added a bunch of Meyers patterns, but not all. Hope to continue tomorrow until they are all restored, and will then work on the Erikas.
You can tell that a download link has restored because the “Buy Now” buttons now show the logos of the major credit cards, unlike before, where they only showed “Buy Now”.
Meanwhile, I keep forgetting to mention:
1) Started a new Yahoo group on Niebling to make it easier for folks to discuss the topic… but so far the group is pretty quiet… am hoping it’s because folks prefer to look at pictures instead (like me..). There is a button to join on the left side bar of this blog, but it’s pretty far down so:

2) Got a bit sidetracked with the Glockenblume blanket, but perhaps it’s a good thing… will explain later (suspense…. suspense…)
