"Knitting and crocheting has been my hobby since childhood. I started making stuffed toys for children hospitals several years ago. It has become a passion, I absolutely love making them. My “Critters” are a nice cuddly, hug-gable, lovable size for the children. And what’s truly amazing is how much pure pleasure a person can receive by creating them."
My patterns are written so that they are easy to follow, and include photos and instructions to help you. If you haven’t tried making a toy using the knitting in the round method, give it a try, your in for a very pleasant surprise! If you have a question contact me at bjfromnv@gmail.com

Two more how to videos added to my blog!

Well I finally got two more videos made and uploaded today. The first is about increasing, using M1 working in the round on double pointed needles. The second is about W&T or short rows. I  also have them posted in the tut, link, & info page. Here is the link for my Playlist  with all four videos called “Knitting in Circles” on YouTube

How to Knit:" M1" increase knit in the round on dp needles

How to Knit: W&T or short rows on double pointed needles

It’s my hope that these videos will help answer any  questions, or help alleviate any problems someone is having knitting in the round.  My patterns are intended to be knit using double pointed needles. Knitting in the round with double pointed needles, is not quite the same as with working with circular needles. If the word seamless is associated with a pattern, you can bet I’ll be interested. Most everything I make I try to make it seamless, so I convert most patterns that I knit. I guess it must be pretty obvious by now that I’m not crazy about seaming. I really love making  toys, and I feel that they are sturdier because  their appendages are not sewn on but picked up and knit. So on the knitting front:
I’ll unravel that head and prepare it for a demo of “Intarsia” knitting in the round. I will again use the big needles and lighter yarn in the hopes that this will make the stitches easier to see. So with any luck I should have that done tomorrow. Still one of my favorite words, Manana! Still working on my wabbit, coming out cute………you know the drill………..have fun :)with a song in our heart!                                     With a song in my heart!
