sandyran - Sandra Reuston Happy belated birthday!
ctblack4 - Cheryl Black Yes, Happy late😘
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener Wonderful, every time you post a pic. of your knitting it inspires me to get busy with mine. Thank youπŸ‘πŸ‘ Beautiful yarn , what is it?
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @ctblack4 thank you friend! Please let me know the minute you land in town (if you're still coming out). I sure miss you!!!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @sandyran thank you! It was a hectic one, but still fun in all the craziness!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @barbgrwe thanks for saying it's inspiring since it's all I can seem to post about! This yarn is dreamy - HiKoo Rylie. It's expensive for me at least, I always just use what I have on hand and never buy the suggested yarn!
annasophielee - Ani Lee Loving your feed!
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener @garmenthouse , I do the same with the yarn. I use what I have on hand and make it work😜 if I can't get it to work then I usually don't make it, unless it's something REALLY special for one of my grand babes. Happiness to you and your family alwaysπŸ’•πŸ‘΅πŸ»

marianne_sw - Marianne SW @garmenthouse are those H&M leggings? I went kinda crazy and bought stripy leggings, short and long sleeved bodysuits in every color there today...so soft
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I'm just going to continue on with finishing all my unfinished knitting projects around the house since it's so satisfying!  This cabled pullover got thrown to the side when I got worried it was turning out too small.  I think I've found a clever way to salvage it though!

garmenthouse - garmenthouse You got it! I've converted it to be a pullover though so I changed the front quite a bit. @knitterly_things
wild_haven - wild_haven I'm working on Aidez as well right now! Will be interested to see your final modifications!
mariafordon - Maria Fordon I loved knitting that cardigan so much. The sizing is definitely wonky though. I still wear it anyway.

erindando - Erin Dando I hope you realise how incredibly talented you are to be able to knit like that! It's beautiful.
jewelweedstextiles - jewelweeds Totally! Hope he's doing better!
kristienkahn - How's your bunny rabbit doing? He's got the cutest feet. Oh, Aidez...cast on for that like 4 years ago and never made it past the first couple inches.
hellojcasa - Jennifer Casa this makes me so happy. been keeping you in my thoughts this week! viva la knitting therapy!
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I finished Doug's Classic "Brooks" sweater and gave it to him as an early Father's Day gift.  We've been through so much, and sometimes I can't believe we're still together!  I want to spend a lifetime knitting him things!  And also, now I'm suffering from finished object knitting withdrawal and am desperate to get something on the needles.  Anyone have some good patterns I should check out?

yote79 - Thanks for making this for me. It's some of your best work. I love you. By the way, nice saddle loop perl-over technique on the stitch ribbing raglans. (Did I say it right?)
mrsinsleyohana - Kate Insley It's gorgeous! I'm about to CO @dreareneeknits #yogashawl!!
clairedollan - claire it's perfect. what a sweet pair your are x
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @yote79 you're right on the money, hot stuff. The marriage jokes are wrong, you DO listen to me! I will say that no computer programmer I've ever met can figure out how to spell purl though. WHICH PEARLPERLPURL is it?!!!!!
chloealexahandmade - Chloe Lewis You're so good! So many sweaters! @garmenthouse As a knitter married to a computer programmer I have to say I'm very impressed with your knitting vocab @yote79
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener This is perfectly knitted. I thought it looked machine knitted , it's soo good!!! There are a lot of free patterns in all sorts of categories on the web site ravelry. com. It's a free site you just have to join. Really a wonderful, reputable site.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @mrsinsleyohana oh, I love that one! And have you seen her newest chevron pattern shawl?! Wow, I think I've found the shawl I've always wanted to knit! Beautiful design as always @dreareneeknits !
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @chloealexahandmade @yote79 I honestly am, too! Saddle loop perl-over stitch ribbing raglans might be the formula to my million dollar sweater design!

Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I'm so thankful for the time you all put into voicing your kind words, stories and prayers for us.  I've cried through most your comments and I keep remembering them when I need encouragement.  We feel stuck in this uncomfortable spot of being forced to wait, and also be brave as we look ahead.  Thankfully, we're not the first to feel this! "Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord." Psalms 27:14

jballanti - Jessica I am praying for your family right now. Waiting is so hard.

wheretheheartis - Caroline I have been following your work/life on your blog and IG for years now and I am saddened to hear of the difficulties and heartache in your life right now. I will keep your family and your little one in my prayers. Lots of love!
elmacdonald - elmacdonald Been a fan of your work for a while and I'm so sad to read about this. Praying for your little miracle baby.
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - For those of you that asked, it was our baby that was recently in the hospital.  Test results from that visit have shown that at the least, he has suffered a stroke and there's a possibility it could be something worse.  It's thrown our lives into an even bigger hurricane, and it's been hard to understand and push on.  Some people have been so kind, and others have said things that confuse and crush us and leave us feeling completely isolated.  It's getting harder and harder to yell out to people for help because of the unpredictability of their reactions, but "be still, and know that I am God" (Ps. 46:10) has comforted me and reminded me that even if I can't do anything, God hasn't forgotten about us.  All I can possibly seem to do, be still, is all I need to do.

boysandb - Barb LOVE EVERY MOMENT YOU HAVE....72 minutes, hours, days, or years. They are all equally precious.
gordy___ - Gordy Praying for you and your family ❀️. I don't know you personally but have read your blog for years. Your gentle and caring nature radiates through your blog and I know your little baby is lucky to have you (and Doug) as his parents to care for and advocate for him through this. And of course to be still with him. I hope his health is restored in time.
rehugg - rachel I am so sorry. I'm praying for your sweet baby and your family. My son was diagnosed with a serious, lifelong condition when he was three, and it was so confusing and isolating, and often the well-meaning "encouragement" from others was devastating (one of my closest friends compared my son's condition to her children having to start wearing glasses). Comfort and healing to you all.
kristienkahn - Elly, my heart and thoughts are with you, Doug, T, and your beautiful baby boy. I do not believe in everything happening for a reason because in my work as a nurse and in my life experience, so many people face hardships that are without reason or purpose. It feels so unfair to learn about your baby suffering. I am happy you have your faith and love of your husband and family to buoy you at this time. I will always remember meeting you and your sweet sister in Portland nearly five years ago and what a beautiful spirit you have. I know you do not overshare in this forum but the few glimpses you have given us of your challenges these years since have made me concerned for you. Sending you love and support from NY. Know you have friends far and wide who are pulling for you and your baby.
debbieanncohen - Debbie Cohen I'm so sorry to hear you and your family are going through this. Sending so many warm and healing thoughts your way.
thestorygirl - Caitlin Clark My heart and prayers go out to you and your lovely family. You've been through so much!! One of my favorite verses and my prayer for you is "the Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face shine on you, and be gracious to you, the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
trishiaherbst - Our thoughts and prayers are with your family!!
katiehollott - I just follow along here, but I will keep your sweet baby in my prayers. xo

juliehg7 - Julie Hoecherl-Grobner My prayers are with you. I learned to knit mid January while my dad was in MICU intubated. He hears you. He knows your pain and your heart.

karentempler - karentempler We went through a long spell like that last year. Wishing you through to the other side of this one.
kristienkahn - Ugh, Elly. I'm very sorry to hear you or a loved one has been hospitalized. Sending you good thoughts.
