A little Christmas Miracle at our farm..we did not expect any new babies for the year, but two duckling were born, unfortunately we lost one as a chicken hen had damaged their eggs hearing their peeps.. their mom passed away a month ago and these were her last two eggs.. praying that this little one makes it through the new year. If it does, we will call it Miracle and it will be a house duck and join our house birds that have problems as I don't think it will be able to join our larger flock in the barns. Praying for a good outcome.

I pray for the innocent victims of Humas.. I pray this nightmare ends soon. Hamas = Death, the death of innocent Israelis and Muslims too.
This is heartbreaking.

It is not too late to knit a gift for someone.

Cast on 40 sts..
R1: k5, p5, repeat these two sets to end of row.
R2: repeat row one.

You are repeating because you ended the 1st row with p5, so of course you will know knit those 5 sts..

Repeat these two rows 4 more times, 6 pattern rows in all. Then on 7th row, (right side row)..

R7: p5, k5, repeat these two sets to end of row, ending with k5.
R8: p5, k5, repeat these two sets to end of row, ending with k5.
Repeat these two rows 4 more times, 6 pattern rows in all.

Repeat these pattern sets that create a basket pattern for as long as you want your scarf to be. Just have fun.. cast off when it is long enough for you.

Finish the ends with pompoms, fringe, or faux fur puffs that you can buy at a craft shop.

Have fun..and post your finished scarf here.

Have a great knit day wherever you are in the world.

We have been busy this last year at our farm planting new fig trees, putting in a small orchard and raising our chickens and ducks to be happy and healthy.
We have also been working on knit designs and will be posting new patterns and also knit kits to our website by fall.
All of us at Carasan Designs hope every one is doing well and staying safe around the world.
Find something in your life that is positive and makes you happy. Be inspired by all you see and have a blessed weekend.
And we ask all to pray to all who are in harm's way in Afghanistan, and other countries around the world, as well as those who are still dealing with the pandemic.
Stay positive and safe.

Feeling blessed..my son recently got married to a wonderful young woman..
I was more then happy to design both her wedding dress and shawl. She looks amazing in red!
I know they will both be blessed in their marriage. We are beyond thrilled for both of them.

We just are finishing up samples for our new Carlye Shawl.. we named it after our new family member.. Carlye.
We will be collaborating with a local yarn shop for a knit a long in the spring. There will be a few versions of this, from a lace/sock weight yarn, a DK and a worsted weight for those of you who want a larger shawl and are not comfortable working with small #2.5 size needles.
This will keep you busy knitting while you stay at home while this virus still is running rampant though out the world.
The pattern will be available at: www.carasan.com
Have a great knit day wherever you are in the world.

The 1st week of September the 35th Anniversary issue of Vogue Knitting magazine is coming out!
You can find my new design, this beautiful teal and blue mohair pullover in there. The yarn is an amazing South Africa Mohair..the design is a relaxed fitting raglan sleeve pullover with a wide boat neck.. the stripes.. well, you may think you know how to knit them, but you are in for a little surprise when you do. It is always fun to learn a new technique in knitting.. I am sure you will love making this and wearing it this fall.
Oh, if you want to buy this yarn it is from Be Sweet Yarns in Michigan..
Have a great knit day.. Terri Rosenthal of Carasan Designs.
