UPDATE ON THE MOSS ST. CUSHION

Sorry I didn't get back to this yesterday, I forgot that it was wonderful Wednesday.

Wednesdays as from a couple of weeks back is now filled with new friends, cups of coffee and shared knitting and crochet at a KNIT AND NATTER group in Shrewsbury....Thanks Erika for a fabulous and friendly group, so pleased I made it to your group eventually and Thanks Maralyn for suggesting I go along. 
A fabulous group of girls who made me feel very welcome from the first minute I arrived....Thanks Girls I look forward to many a fun filled Wednesdays from now on.

4 of us took a trip to Colinette yesterday too, a fabulous wool store well worth a visit. 

Here is the new stitch numbers for the Diagonal Cushion Pattern I shared a couple of days back


MOSS ST. DIAGONAL CUSHION new sts numbers
When I did the pattern I forgot how moss stitch tightens up and has very little stretch, unlike dc used in the original  Diagonal Striped cushion

These sts numbers are for Moss Stitch only
Using a double strand of DK worked together and a 5mm hook

70 base chain, made a 13" diagonal cushion but will make an 18" straight cushion 
82 base chain, will make a 16" diagonal cushion
90 base chain will make an 18" diagonal cushion
98 base chain will make a 20" diagonal cushion

BUS STOP KNITTER, how new friends can be made?
Met someone at the bus stop yesterday polite chat revealed she was an avid knitter and we had a great chat, I got out my crochet on the bus and she came over to see what I was doing, she loved the Moss Stitch and said she would definitely be having a go....new friend made? lol

HAVE FUN X

  3. I have had more interesting conversations with people while crocheting in public. It's a great icebreaker for people.
