Poker Placemats

Knitting

Today's Vintage Pattern is for the card player in your life :) Poker card placemats and napkins to knit! (speaking of poker, has anyone caught the series Tilt on ESPN? I really like what we've tivo'd so far).



I purchased the new Interweave Knits (mainly because one of my blog friends is in it on the article on recycling yarns/sweaters). I normally really like their patterns, but this time, I have a hard time seeing what I might knit out of it. I suppose I should have glanced through before buying it, but I'm kinda silly like that.

Look what I found at the GoodWill. I think it's handknit and crocheted since I couldn't find a tag anywhere. the sleeves and flowery things on the front are crocheted. I love the color and the size, but I'm not crazy about the neck. I'll leave it for now, but I'm semi tempted to rip the neck out and re knit a smaller one for it (the turtleneck just doesn't suit me). Sorry for the poor angle on the photo. I'm such a lazy butt that I couldn't be bothered to walk to the side of the room with the tripod. So it's taken with the camera sitting on the table.



RAOK!
I got home and found a cute M&M postcard from Illanna. She had lots of wonderful things to say about my yarn... and who wouldn't love that type of postcard!! :-P

Thanks Illana!! You definitely helped perk up my day!

I love the sweater too, but I agree, the collar is weird... it should be a scoop neck, so it looks almost like a tank top with pretty crochet sleeves. It's really cute, otherwise!

hi lori,

i found the hello kitty/sponge bob shoe charms, i mean stitch markers in the shoe dept. of target, next to the shoe laces. i picked mine up at the albany target, i expect they'll be at your local target too.

deep color studio is in my neighborhood! she's definitely got fabu stuff. maybe i'll bump into you at the open house. :)
