the KWH iPad Show #34 💜 crafty Christmas catch-up for a cheery New Year!

Hello & Welcome
to my 34th episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is our decorated staircase…
crafted over Christmas &
cheering-in the New Year 🙂

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! 

stitch markers and crochet snowflakes from Angela

me at the Apple Store

Well here we are, one week past Christmas and finally posting my decorated staircase … LoL … Honestly, some people really ought to get their Christmas knitting act together and start stitching as soon as the stores start their seasonal displays!!! Ah well, it’s all fun and I’m not feeling a bit foolish for posting ’em late 😉 Far better to be squeeking-in with this post before the stroke of New Year’s, than suffer the hang-over of waiting ’til next year!

Anyhoo…

This year’s Christmas staircase theme colours include: red, green and white with spindles wrapped in icy blue eyelash yarn. The tree is one ball each of fleece/eyelash yarn. The large heart on the tree is red eyelash yarn…. Gotta say, I ❤ that eyelash yarn! These were part of my birthday yarn stash purchase from Herrschners. The candles are red crochet (wedding gift) doilies, with flames knit of fancy-fluffy-puffy golden yarn from a friend. The various garlands are knit from Bernat Boa, Lily Crafter’s Cotton (discontinued) and Bernat Christmas Tinsel worsted cotton… Ooooh, plus one furry strip of Baby Monkey ultra-soft yarn… Adorning tree ornaments include: 1 green wool Heartfelted Bramble♥tini Loop Ornament + 2 red/white fleece Sweetie♥Knit♥Hearts + 5 green wool Hearty Links with Felted Loops + 2 i-Cord candy canes. The tree topper ribbon is from an embellished Ferrero Rocher gift pack. That white loopy thing below the ribbon is just me playing with plarn (plastic yarn)—spun on my drop spindle.

And finally… the lovely crochet snowflakes and charmed stitch markers (also pictured separately from last year’s post) were gifted to me last Christmas from Angela aka “Wish I Were Stitching” WP blog… Thanks again, Angela ❤

Then today, technically ending the year off right, we popped into our nearest Apple Store and bought a much needed flash drive… It’s charging now! And am I ever looking forward to unloading my overstuffed iPad of nearly 9 months worth of blogging photos!!!

Hello & Welcome
to my 31st episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is true love…
and why life is meaningful, for me 🙂

.

Time, Heart, Behavior imagegratitude heart image

Today… is Wednesday!
2 weeks ’til Christmas 🙂
246 days since my iMac died 😦
20 years of living happily married after ❤

Today… I find loving comfort
in holding 
my dear husband near 🙂

Today… I remain blogfully diligent
in hopes that my iPad will outwit, outlast and outplay the economic storm :-/

And today… I am blessed beyond measure
in this Christmas season, by the everlasting light of my Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ—who left His throne in Heaven to be born of a virgin, then put to death and resurrected… conquering death. All this, for the sake of His true love for sinful souls, like me… And now, all who trust in Him will be set free!

Yes today…
this triumphant baby
 Jesus
lives and reigns in my heart!
He is the reason life is worth living,
and He is my joyous reason for
celebrating this Christmas season ❤

Shamrockin’ Spring bracelet ♥ Do you felt lucky?

Shamrockin' Spring bracelet with split (heart-shaped layout) yarn tails
Shamrockin' Spring bracelet with split (heart-shaped layout) yarn tails

Click image to view my “how to” post for Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrocks from 2013.

Hey there! Do you feel lucky? St. Patrick’s Day is coming up… The days are getting longer… And SPRING is in the air! Equinox is still over a week away, but half our snow is already melted! And with this weekend’s double-digit +Cº forecast, the rest will soon follow!!! A welcome change, since springtime around here tends to arrive rather late 😀

Some people say shamrocks are “lucky”, but for me they are simply a sweet sign of spring. I’m hoping this post will inspire you to knit ‘n felt my most recent design for a shamrockin’ fun-felted bling bracelet. It will surely have you feeling like spring 🙂

To get started, knit 4 Sweetie♥KNIT♥Hearts from feltable wool—leaving extra-long tails measuring approx 30″/75 cms in length. Sew all 4 of the Sweetie♥KNIT♥Heart points together. Secure all yarn tails on WS (wrong side). Then separate the yarn tail plies.
.

Okay… that’s all for now, but I’ll be back asap with photos demonstrating the rest of this “how to” for you! Then we can all wear handmade shamrockin’ bling this spring!  In the meantime, here’s Cary Grant in a movie clip from “Mr. Lucky” 1943. Watch now, as he demonstrates how real men knit 😉

how to make Hearty Links with Felted Loops . . . together with another fun visit from the Orples ♥

Well it’s been a while, since that summery September post when I first mentioned my plans to be back “soon” with this next step to making hearty garland felted loop links. Now four ( 4!!! ) months later, I do hope you think it was worth the wait… ?

Diagram: how to make hearty links with felted loops

Time has flown by! But where did it go?!?

It might be hibernating under the snow, although a lot of time has been spent on recent software upgrade learning curves. Oh, and that inbox of mine… Time always seems to lose track of itself when it gets together with my blogfully delightful, yet utterly inbox-icating electronic messaging centre.

Time well spent 😉

My timing might be a bit sheepish, although 2015 is the year of sheep 😉 As well, these hearty felted loopy links are created from sheep’s wool! So now, here it finally is! In time for Valentine’s Day and months ahead of the fibrously hectic Christmas projects rush… Yay!!! Click image to view enlarged PDF instructions.

Oh, and speaking of flying…

Have you met our friendly neighbourhood Orples? They popped by for a third visit to my blog, this week. So fun! Here are links to their first, second and third visits. You might want to visit them and see what all the fun is about 🙂

Happy “100th blog post” New Year ♥

door_KWH9049

Laugh and the world laughs with you…
 Blog a few years, until your 100th post
coincides with New Year’s celebrations
and the whole world parties 😉
. . . Cheers! . . .


Happy New Year!
Thanks for connecting with me 
and
WELCOME to my 100th post

Yup, this little milestone post of mine has somehow managed to coincide with the world-wide party celebration of the year! How’s that for timing? It merely took nearly 3 years to get here… lol … 18 posts during my first (super-timid me) year + 37 posts in 2013 (when I began to relax) + 45 posts for 2014 (counting this one)… And now looking ahead to 2015 with blogful hopes of possibly doubling that count by the end of the year. Can she do it? There’s bound to be at least another 100 posts in me, so let’s hope!!!

stitch markers and crochet snowflakes from AngelaNow for the yarn party, which is already underway…

A few days before Christmas, we received a pretty little package in the post. It was from Singapore, where Angela aka Pretty Little Things In A Box blogs about crafts. The parcel was such a pleasant surprise, including: 8 handmade stitch markers + 9 crocheted red/white/green snowflake ornaments with heart-shaped buttons and festive ribbon 🙂 Thank you so much, Angela ♥ These lovely little treasures make a pretty little Christmas tree, too—see photo 🙂

hand-knit hat from PatOur neighbour, Pat, also learned to knit this past summer. And she’s been knitting “all the things” ever since… Pretty sure everyone she knows got a handknit hat for Christmas, this year 😉 She even knit a lovely purple wool slouchy hat with loom-flowers for me, accompanied by a sweet sack of Christmas shortbread! I hung them with care, for photos on our Christmas decorated stairs. But alas, the heart I knit for her got away without photos…

tree of Oilers heart dishcloths in the snowAside from colour, though, it was the same heart-shaped pattern that I knit for Randy (our “snow angel” retired NHL linesman now realtor neighbour extraordinaire). He clears our driveway whenever it snows. So in appreciation, I knit him half a dozen heart-shaped dishcloths in “Edmonton Oiler” colours (presuming the Oilers to be his favourite hockey team). But oops… as an NHL professional, his team preference is unbiased—duhhh. Oh well, at least the orange cotton I ordered on “Black Friday” turned out to be the perfect shade and arrived in time to knit them. I took them outside for a photo shoot while still damp from blocking and the hearts quickly froze. It cracked me up—seeing all those frozen hearts hanging from our leafless tree … teehee … What else did I expect at -20ºC/-4ºF?!? 😉

Ohhh… and so nice to see that the orples have been by again! I hear they’re itching to learn stitching. So let’s all get together and knit one day real soon! 🙂

Wishing you the happiest of New Years in 2015 ♥ Jackie


the Heart of Christmas ♥ hearty handknit decorations

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wishing you a merrily heartfelt Christmas and a happily decorated staircase! We don’t have a Christmas tree. What we do have is a lot of yarn and handknit heart decorations. And since decorating the staircase was so much fun last year, I thought it might be fun to do it again this year 🙂 Hmmm… could this be the start of a new tradition?!? How many years does it take to build a tradition?

Anyway, yarn is always fun to play around with and take photos of—before and/or after it is knit up 🙂 As you may recall, these are the same backyard photo props from last week’s “deck the yard with hearts of yarn-y” post. Yup… lots of good, clean, indoor/outdoor hearty yarn-bombing fun going on around here! Stay tuned to this blog for more details on making your own hearty “how to’s” in 2015!

May your heart overflow with
love, joy, happiness and peace…
at Christmas time and
throughout the new year.

Merry Christmas! ♥ Jackie


thanks snow much ♥

Although winter’s just getting started, and we’ve another 3-4 months of anticipated snowfall to go… our landscape has already been heavily blanketed in nearly an entire winter’s worth of snow! Can you imagine the hours of back-breaking effort it would take to shovel all that by hand? … whew … And can you imagine how absolutely wonderful it would be if a “snow angel” were to come by and clear it all away every time it fell?

That, my friends, would be heavenly!

And oh thank Heaven for Randy Mitton, aka our “snow angel” neighbour, who generously makes time to clear several of his neighbour’s driveways… frequently more than once per day… all the while expecting no pay!

Vons gift certificate, golf balls

To show our appreciation, we put together a taylor made package of golf balls (in hopes he’ll get to do more than dream about hitting the green), a VONS gift certificate (so he and his lovely wife can enjoy a night out), and a little something hand-knit. But since there are hearts involved with pretty well everything I’ve been knitting these days, I was wracking my brain over what to knit for Randy (aka retired NHL linesman, now realtor)…

Then lo and behold, after a contemplative stash dive, thoughts of an Edmonton Oiler/snowy-themed cushion began to dance on my needles! I’d found a square cushion insert and just enough yarn in Oiler blue/orange, plus sparkly and fleecy white yarns—similar to that of fluffy, glistening snowflakes!!! It was fun to make, “fudge” (aren’t all prototypes stitched together with fudge?!?) and all 😉 There was even a spot to knit some extra heart! Now that it’s delivered, I just hope he likes it… What do you think?

enjoying the snow… ♥ Jackie


Now on facebook ❤ . . . luv ‘n stitches for our tired old world!

Yes, it’s true!
KNITTING WITH HEART has now
(finally) joined the facebook party… woohoo!!! 

We’ll have a fun time interacting together…
over @ my “Knitting With Heart” facebook page!
So come on over 🙂   I hope you will “LIKE” it too  ❤

The page is brand spanking new, so there’s not a lot posted yet. My purpose for the page is two-fold. First, knitting fun! Second, knitting fun without boring my non-knitting family members to tears! My new “Knitting With Heart” page will feature posts to my blog, as well as various links that I find interesting along the way. Links to my original knitting patterns (as they become available) will also be featured on this page.

And so, here we go…
dipping another toe into the vast sea of social media!
Looking forward to some yarn good fun!

fb soon! ❤ Jackie


Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrocks . . . a free little knitting pattern that felts like Spring!

Sweetie❤KNIT❤Shamrocks . . . a free little knitting pattern that felts like Spring! ||| Knitting With Heart

Does it feel like spring where you are? Our month of March felt a lot like spring until last week. This week, though, we’ve been stuck under another arctic air mass. It’s been snowing off/on every day for the last 5 days. The good news is that our snow-frolicking/shoveling days are (technically) numbered, since spring is scheduled to arrive here on Wednesday @ 5:02 AM. Wow, that’s only 2 more days of winter, woohoo!!! Around here, we expect this will translate into another month or so before (most of) the snow is finally melted away. But after all these months, we’re sure hoping winter got the memo and will be moving out sooner than later this year!

And did you think that I must’ve missed the St. Patrick’s Day memo too? Actually, this was one post which I’d felt quite confident would be posted early. Oh well, that’s the way the clover crumbles, sometimes… Sure, it’s early alright… Early for next year, that is! Sorry it’s a tad late for March 17th 2013… You see, I’ve been teaching myself how to use Gimp image editing software. Gimp is just like Photoshop, only less sleek and more clunky. It’s also a free download, which fits my budget just right! 🙂

And so, on this fine, lovely-day-after St. Patrick’s Day, let us dream of rainbows, melting snow and budding flowers/foliage. And let us knit our own springtime patch of clover with my Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrock pattern! By the way, did you know that shamrocks/clovers are also symbolic of springtime and new beginnings?

MATERIALS:
— your choice of feltable wool
— knitting needles sized appropriately for your yarn
— large-eyed yarn needle
— water for felting

yarn+shamrocks

NOTE: Any feltable wool will work.
The needles and wool that I used for making the Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrocks pictured in this post are as follows:

Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrock worsted weight yarn
(larger sample pictured):
— FINISHED SIZE: approximately 1.75” (not including stem)
— US size 3 (3 mm) needles
— Herrschners 3-ply worsted weight 100% wool
— approximately 3.5′ (1.25 m) per heart x 3 hearts = 10.5’ (3.75 m) per shamrock

Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrock fingering weight yarn
(smaller sample pictured):
— FINISHED SIZE: approximately 1.25” (not including stem)
— US size 1 (2.25 mm) needles
— Knit Picks Palette 2-ply fingering weight 100% wool
— approximately 3′ (1 m) wool per heart x 3 hearts = 9’ (3 m) per shamrock

shamrock with split ends

Sweetie♥KNIT♥Shamrock with separate yarn tails, ready for felting.

HOW-TO:

STEP 1: Knit three Sweetie♥KNIT♥Hearts from feltable wool
(click here to download my free pattern).

STEP 2: Sew the pointy ends of the three Sweetie♥KNIT♥Hearts together.

STEP 3: Separate each ply of the remaining yarn tails.

STEP 4: Wet these separated strands and rub them vigorously between your fingers until they are felted—forming the stem of your shamrock.

NOTE: Felting will cause the yarn tails to shrink and mat together.
What a great feeling, to magically felt-away all those loose ends 🙂

And that’s all there is to it… super sweet ‘n simple, right?
I’d love to hear what you think of it. Feel free to leave a comment 🙂

Heart-shaped symbols of love are fun

seem—these days—to be EVERY where!

using paper & yarn & love . . . who needs bought?!

papers to make Valentine Postcard project

Paper & Yarn in Perfect Harmony…
because we’d all like to add a hand-knit touch
to our own crafty Valentine cards!

♥ ♥ ♥

Well it feels like forever, yet it’s only been a few weeks since I began working on this (my first) tutorial. Now that it’s posted, I sure hope you like it! Please let me know what you think… especially if you spot something I’ve missed. Thanks! Your constructive critiquing is both valuable and appreciated.

This tutorial is a fun, easy way to knit a little 3-dimensional love into your Valentine cards! And we all know our tired, old world could use a refreshing breath of (hand-knit heart) love right about now! ♥ And would it surprise anyone to hear that my inspiration for this card was found on Pinterest? Yes, hearts are simply everywhere, including my Sweetie♥KNIT♥Heart at the heart of my own creative Valentine queue ♥

Here is a list of tools/supplies/materials you will need for this project. In my previous post, I mentioned there would be 2 separate templates for the card’s graphic. These 2 layouts are now combined onto a single template. That way, you can print/trim one template sheet and immediately have 2 layouts to choose from. 🙂

This tutorial is 6 pages in length, including 3 template pages.

“LOVE is in the air” Sweetie♥KNIT♥Valentine POSTcard Tutorial

FINISHED POSTCARD SIZE
4.25”/10.8 cms wide x 5.5”/14 cms high

NEEDLES/YARN
❥ US size 6 (4 mm) needles
❥ 3 handknit Sweetie♥KNIT♥Hearts per card
❥ approx 5’ (1.5 m) worsted weight yarn per handknit heart

PAPER
❥ 1 sheet 8.5” x 11” white laser paper—to print the card’s graphic template
❥ 1 sheet 8.5” x 11” coloured laser card stock—to print the card’s matting template
❥ 1 sheet 8.5” x 11” white laser paper— to print the heart-shaped envelope template
❥ 1 sheet 8.5” x 11” coloured paper—to make each heart-shaped envelope from template

OTHER TOOLS/SUPPLIES
❥ scissors
❥ craft knife, ruler and safe cutting surface (guillotine-style paper cutter, if you have one)
❥ large-eyed yarn needle
❥ computer with printer—to print the PDF templates
❥ sticker(s) to seal and/or decorate the envelope

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day  ♥  Jackie


LOVE is in the Air . . .

Yes, we are fast-approaching Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! And as promised in my last post, I’ve been busy working to prepare a tutorial for your valentine-ing pleasure!

My next tutorial will surely be easier. This FIRST tutorial, however, has been lots of work, along with plenty of hard knocks from learning curves, plus my laser printer’s unexpected and highly inopportune demise …sigh… On the lighter side, it is nice that I am reminded of a joke my dad used to enjoy telling. He liked to say he was working on his second million dollars, since the first million dollars was proving to be much more difficult 🙂

Anyway, it appears that visitor’s traffic to my blog is rising steadily. This is wonderful to see! And it’s important to me that you know this blog will (eventually) feature many more “heart” patterns ‘n projects for you all to see here too 🙂 Thank you very much for stopping by! Please come again, tell all your friends and do come often… You may also choose to sign-up to receive email updates for this blog. That way, you will always know right away when something new is posted ❤

For now, in eager anticipation of the long-awaited tutorial, here is a list of the materials/supplies required for the project. You may want to gather these together now, and be all set to go when the tutorial is posted 🙂

NOTE: There will be two sample layouts for the card(s). Each layout’s template (including the card’s matting template) is set to print 4-up on letter-size paper. This gives you four cards per sheet and reduces waste. The heart-shaped envelope template will print one-per-sheet (1-up) on letter-size paper. Thus, you will need: four sheets of coloured envelope paper + one sheet white laser paper + one sheet coloured card stock per set of 4 cards with envelopes.

NEEDLES ‘n YARN:
US size 6 (4 mm) needles
3 handknit Sweetie❤KNIT❤Hearts per card
approximately 5’ (1.5 m) worsted weight yarn per handknit heart

PAPER:
1 sheet 8.5” x 11” white laser paper—to print the card’s graphic image area
1 sheet 8.5” x 11” coloured laser card stock—to print the card’s matting
1 sheet 8.5” x 11” white laser paper— to print the heart-shaped envelope template
1 sheet 8.5” x 11” coloured paper—to make each heart-shaped envelope from template

OTHER TOOLS/SUPPLIES:
scissors
craft knife and safe cutting surface
large-eyed yarn needle
computer with printer for printing the PDF templates
sticker(s) to seal and/or decorate the heart envelope

Okay, see you shortly!

ttys ❤  Jackie


Blessings ❤ Thanksgiving

Here in Canada, our National Day of Thanksgiving is the second Monday in October. It’s a day off work and (hopefully) a long-weekend filled with family, food ‘n fun. Besides all that, though, this date on the calendar is like a friendly reminder to exercise our grateful hearts ❤ … Thank God for family, freedom, health, shelter, comfort, safety, success, the ability to breath, think, wiggle our fingers ‘n toes, live…

The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust Him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
Psalm 28:7 (NLT)

And now, in the spirit of living in thanksgiving, I have gathered together a few of my favourite thought-provoking bits of inspirational wisdom. All these are shared freely online. My search efforts to reveal and acknowledge the original source authors, however, have lead only to seemingly endless re-postings by other grateful hearts… Even so, I thought it might be nice to showcase a few inspiring messages here, in a slide show.

Perhaps you have already seen all of these?
Well, here is one more link that I think we may all be thankful for…

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada to everyone!


Welcome to my blog! ♥

Hello and welcome to my “Knitting With Heart” blog.

Today is the day I add my dot to the blogosphere! It is my knitterly thrill to finally begin blogging about knitting. My hope is that it will appeal to you too.

Here in my little blog, you will find original knitting patterns designed by me. Many of these will be dramatically heart-shaped by design. Others will integrate heart motifs. Still others will evoke expressions of the heart apart from the appearance of hearts. Truly, regardless of shape or style, my heart went stitch-by-stitch into designing each and every one… And so, this blog is named Knitting With Heart.

Thanks for stopping by! ♥ Jackie
