Re: How to Knit a Cool and Breezy Button Curtain

What I love about this window covering is that you still see the glorious view through this lacey curtain dappled with buttons. Great idea to use sea shells or even glass beads could glisten when the sun shines through... Thanks Tina!!

Re: Airline Travel Info for Knitters

It is a great idea to be prepared with a self-addressed envelop just in case. I have not had a challenge in carrying on small circular needles. I took a necklace charm thread cutter instead of scissors. Maybe we could start a 'Mile-High Knitting Group'... Sorry to hear folks lost projects and tools.

Re: Easy Elegant Scarf

Hi Tina,

Love your blog and the Elegant Scarf. My friend Mary, gifted me a rayon boucle and this pattern and it was fun to knit and wear. I've also used an Italian wool on size 15 needles with this pattern and it is perfect for colder weather.
