Cheering for the Art of Crochet

Blog: DeeKnitsToo?

Heavenly Inspiration?

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 5:00 PM

I was chatting with my friend, Grace, when we got to talking about me getting 'caught' with knitting sticks in my hands -- again. Is this a new trend for me? I'm not sure.

I was doing some research on terms crocheters use in patterns that alert when the project is complete (blog post is here; when I came across an antique knit pattern book featuring designs for men. I don't collect antique knit patterns, so I was a little confused on how it got into my crochet pattern collection.

I let this knit pattern book sit in my "current interest" pile I keep near my works-in-progress; I found I kept opening the book and stopping at one particular stitch pattern. Since the photo was old, seeing the stitch detail was difficult. I had such a strong desire to see the actual stitch worked up that I stopped working on my other projects, went to my knitting needle drawer, pulled out a pair of No. 10's and started knitting up a little swatch. I remember thinking, "Oh! This stitch is so cool! I wonder if I can translate it to crochet?" I kept on swatching; I think it's growing into a scarf.

I told Grace the story of how my grandmother struggled in helping me learn how to knit, and that she strongly advised me I should "...go back to crocheting" because I just wasn't "getting it."

Grace, who crochets and knits, thinks perhaps my current interest in knitting is more than a trend - she's thinking its a heavenly message!

"When did your grandmother pass," Grace asked.

"In 1990," I replied. Then I remembered my father had brought over a few of my grandmother's things a few years back - including her sewing box (that I've yet to be able to open without tears from missing her so much).

"That's it!" Grace exclaimed; "It's your grandmother who is sending you a message that you should play with this pattern!"

What a lovely thought! And if I needed a pinch more of proof that perhaps this is the case, then I need to look no further than the year the book was published - it is the same year my father was born; 1941!

After Grace and I ended our call, I proceeded to stitch up a few more rows. Yikes! I messed up an entire row and need to peel (tink I think is what they call it) about 6 rows down -- I think I'm going to need some heavenly help on this!

Some of it was beginning to discolor and I discarded that part, along with the part that had the small insect holes in it. This skill will become easier as you use your RC gas car more and more. This indicates that ages ago someone started putting together the blossoms they harvested into nice formations that would eventually be acknowledged as bouquets. In medical establishments, people will feel a reduction in their pains by spending some time near a fish tank. Parallel to the spreading of aquariums in the private sector, public display aquariums began showing up in the mid to late 1800's with facilities like:.
