How to make theeee most insanely beautiful chunky knit blanket in the history of ever

I’m almost speechless.

I said almost, don’t get too giddy.

 Everything you need to make a chunky wool blanket is here!  These chunky knit blanket kits are beyond perfect and luscious and sexy and you’ll want to hug your blanket and call it Betty. Or Veronica. Or Clara.

Okay. We named our blanket patterns after our Grandma’s.  Legit.  Because we love our Nana’s and totally appreciate the art of living life in the slow lane.

Today, I’m keeping it brief, not to be confused with showing you my briefs, which might make things kinda awkward between us.

You and I are more than friends. We are like a really small knitting gang.

 AND we have some knitting to do.

Chunky wool knit blanket kits are here!

I super hollered that ^^^^^ !!!!!!%$#@##$%%

I like to party. and by party, I mean knit.

My latest chunky knit patterns that sooooo many of you have been asking for are finally here!!  It only took me 43897498457 hours to get the knit collection set up in the blog shop.

I’m an excellent procrastinator.

Knitting unwinds me and keeps me from unravelling << See what I just did there?!

I have a lot of chunky wool blankets in my home.

Like, a lot.

No really, a LOT LOT.

Originally, setting up my blog shop was during my kitchen renovation (kill me.) That was also a time when I constantly felt like throwing a cocktail in someone’s face. (Or curling up in a dark corner and crying.) And hello Michaels cancer.  Cancer has a way of punching you in the feelings.

It’s at these exact times in my life where I read stacks of trashy magazines, binge-watch Netflix shows, write super boring scintillating blog posts + create chunky wool blanket kits … because the more FUN I pour into my work, the happier my soul becomes.  Did I just sound like a corn dog?  Don’t answer that. It wasn’t a real question.

It takes balls to knit.

Knitters gonna knit.  Therefore you are my fave person.

Chunky knit blanket.  How is this even REAL?

Remember this photo ^^^ that I posted recently on Instagram?

And yes, that’s an enormo amount of throw pillows on my bed, why do you ask?

I   H A D   A   R O U G H   W E E K 

I woke up one day a couple of weeks ago and was like…WHOA! I know what I must do. I must put chunky wool blanket kits on my blog. My coffee was strong. In hindsight, perhaps I should have spiked my coffee.  Yes.  Most definitely. Why the hell didn’t I spike it ?!!%$! *throat punches self.

It was also the same week that I decided to make homemade bread crumbs in my blender. Note to self: do not leave lid off blender when making bread crumbs.  The struggle was real.

M Y   S O C K S   T R I E D   T O   M U R D E R   M E

OKAY.  This is based on a mostly true story. Some of this actually happened. My socks kicked my ass and took my name.

M Y    O R I G I N A L    P L A N :

I had big plans.  A while back, I put on my big girl panties and set out to slay some knitting dragons by duct taping my iPhone to the ceiling for a photo sesh (you are so judging me right now, aren’t you?)  That’s cool. I judged my choices too hahaha *palm hits forehead. I had planned on taking 479847511 photos of the blankets, me and the wool, all happy-like.  I was young and stoopid last week.

I know you are secretly-not-so-secretly already laughing at my genius-not-so-genius duct tape contraption. In my defence, I had inhaled copious quantities of motor oil coffee.  Coffee clearly gives my unrealistic expectations.  What I should have been thinking was…

Step aside coffee. This is a job for alcohol.

 Note: missing person in photo above ^^^ !!!!!?#@%
 
I was dead.  Ugh.
Gone. Whooshed. Vanished.
Off my bed. Like a sock loving loser.
Let’s pretend that didn’t happen.
 

 W H A T    actually   H A P P E N E D …

My photo sesh started off pretty sweet.  I stood on my bed, (hyperventilating from excitement) while duct taping my phone to the ceiling. Oh to be a fly on the wall that day.  I bet the flies were even laughing at me.

It seemed the harder I worked, the slower things seemed to go. Am I f’n ancient ? I’ve seen jello move faster.  Apparently I’m 102 years old.

 

Enter total gong show.

I not-so-delicately-nor-lady-like-took-my-phone-off-the-ceiling-while-swiftly-slipping-and-teetering-off-the-edge-of-my-bed-until-I-flipped-in-my-effffing-socks-and-catapulted-directly-and-promptly-while-face-planting-the-floor.

I basically had my ass delivered to me.

 

So I cried.  

That’s what grown ass adults do. #AmIRite ?

The socks survived. My ego. Not so much.  I bruised pretty much every square inch of my body. Including the unmentionables.  Damn it.  I just mentioned the unmentionables *face palm*

After that fall from grace, my face slightly resembled this—> ?!?!?!?!!!!!  I won’t tell you who had a bruised ego, so don’t even try to guess.  It wasn’t me. I swear it.

Now I realize blogging isn’t a glamorous job, but still.  #FML.

Blogging often looks a little like unemployment to your mother and could more accurately be titled “Professional E-Mailer & Couch Potato Who Knits On The Side.”

*finds potato chip in sofa cushion*

But I finally did it !!!!!

Drops the mic. Walks off the stage.
 
 

THE KNIT COLLECTION WAS BORN

{{  Here’s everything you need to make a gorgy gorgeous chunky knit blanket  }}

Make your own chunky knit blanket with this kit !! It's gorgeousness !!

1.

S I M P L E   =    B E T T E R

PATTERNS : I created TWO gorgeous chunky knit blanket patterns for you.   I’m telling ya, some knitting patterns can make you feel like a total incompetent loser. Not this one.  Or this one.  They are ahhhhmaze.

I updated this pattern on the blog to an even more INCREDIBLE pattern with different blanket sizes, knitting tips and secret knitting sauce. The new ebook downloadable pattern is so so so good.

Both chunky knit blanket patterns are instantly downloadable and full of descriptive pics. I don’t want to deflate your love tires but the patterns have knitting pics, not Channing Tatum pics. Whaaaa?!!!  Pattern Bonus :  There are hawt tips like how to join your yarn without weaving or knots!  Tie up loose ends?  N O P E. There’s nothing to tie up.  No yarn ends. No tying.  OMG OMG OMG OMG.

HINT:  every knitter has the potential to unleash this super power. F’REAL.  It’s super EASY too!

 

2.

NEEDLES : The circular knitting needles are the lowest price in the history of ever on my blog!   Start the car!  Start the car!  The needles are super versatile. I use them for easily knitting all my chunky knit blanket projects. They are also great for making knit pillows, scarves and any chunky yarn knitting projects.

 
 
3.
WOOL :  I also found the most beautiful wool on the face of the earth. Annnnd, you will flip-your-ish (JUST DON’T WEAR WOOL SOCKS!) when you see the kit with the wool in it. Erhhhmergerd. BOOM.  We ran out of stock of the soft blue wool (yet you can still special order it here for the sale price for a later delivery in June. ) The 100% Peruvian wool is also available in the most beautiful creamy colour and black too!!

PS. The colours are d’bomb diggity.

 

4.

CHUNKY KNIT BLANKET KIT :  Good things inside

Didja see all those blanket pics up there in the blog post !? ^^  Told ya, a total beaut. You should totally knit one. For fashion, and for crime fighting. I’m losing my mind over it. It’s ridiculous UGH. Dead. I really think you should just go for it.

The chunky knit blanket kits each come  with wool, knitting needles, pattern, swag AND free knitting pattern too!  Sorry to yell. It’s just so good.  So so so good.
 
Make your own chunky knit blanket with this kit !! It's gorgeousness !!
5.

ACCESSORIES :  Pom-poms and tassels are like jewelry for your blanket.  They can really make a blanket POP with pow.  Erhhhmergerd. Tassels. They are the whole giddy up and go go.

Didja know there are pom pom maker kits? Holy batman.  You’re gonna be like, ohgawdthankyou.  Why have I been winding my wool around toilet rolls for years?!

6.

We need to talk about Macrame.  I’m obsessed.  Have you tried it?  Getting inspired here on Pinterest. OMG OMG OMG OMG.

Being a good knitter is 3% talent and 97% not being distracted by the internet

 

We can do this. And by we, I mean you.  Happy knitting!

  33. Lynne Knowlton

    April 2nd, 2018 at 9:05 pm

    Hi Martha,

    Best of luck with the contest! Big love,
    Lynne

    I bought one kit and now both daughters want the blanket (that I WAS going to make for me). Remind me why I have kids? Just kidding. They all knit (including the odd middle boy child) and are keepers. But they want my blanket, so I need to win the second one.

  35. Lynne Knowlton

    April 2nd, 2018 at 9:07 pm

    ahahahahaahahah Mary… remind me why I have kids… I just laughed out loud. So fab that they all knit. Our son knit too when he was younger. The Waldorf school said it made for great eye hand coordination. I was happy. I have enough knit coasters to last a life time. Great memories!
    Sending you big love!
    Happy knitting!

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:28 pm

    I made my FIRST EVER huuuuuge chunky knit blanket using your pattern. It changed my life 🙂 (That and the loopy mangoes.)

    Just bought the new one, making it in Drops Andes alpaca because I’ve got a load of it to use up. Ooh, but the Peruvian looks gorgeous. Might have to get some of that too …

    Thanks again for these beautiful patterns.

  42. Lynne Knowlton

    April 2nd, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    You are most welcome Abigail. It’s amazing how knitting and a good pattern can transform your knitting game. 🙂 You must be a blanket rock star at this point. I’m coming to visit your house. I hear you have nice blankets. LOL.. Lynne xx

    I don’t know what big blanket barking is.. but if it is a good thing… I agree. I love big blankets. They can bark at me any day of the week. LOL.

  46. Jennie

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:29 pm

    Beautiful photos! They were worth the face plant! 🙂 I absolutely love the pattern, and the yarn looks so cozy and squeezable. I have tried a few patterns for a chunky blanket and I can’t seem to get them to turn out how I’d like. Maybe this one will give me better luck! <3

  47. Lori

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:29 pm

    Hilarious! I find coffee, alcohol and duct tape can solve most of life’s problems (not necessarily in that order!). Having been recovering from concussion so this blanket would be lovely to snuggle under.

  48. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:27 am

    I think you are right Lori ! All three solve most problems, and also cause most problems. hahahaa. Big love and happy knitting! Lynne xx

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:29 pm

    (With hand raised, waving madly) PICK ME, PICK ME!!! I made the Tasseled Wonder for my Granddaughter for Christmas last year and had enough yarn left over for a lap blanket for moi. Made that while sitting in a hospital when my hubby had a stroke, teeth chattering, hands shaking and fingers numb with fear, so consider my lap blanket a true wonder. Hubby is doing well as can be expected. Thanks Lynne for all the fun you bring to my email. Sending beautiful thoughts to your Michael and to you.

  50. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:28 am

    Hi Judi !! I am soooooooooo happy that the tasseled wonder and lap blanket made such a difference in your life. It’s ahhhmazing how comforting they can be.

    Big love to you and your fam jam!

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:30 pm

    I am a newbie to your site and have googly eyes watching this knit pattern and yarn. But having to wait for extra $$. It looks so luschious and easy for new knitters like myself! Now that there is a kit YIPPEE… How I love kits. So nice for new knitters as well. ????????

    This is, and has been, one of my DREAM birthday projects. You see, every birthday, for the past 4 years, I had the intentions of using that “new found play cash” to buy the materials for a long coveted chunky blanket. BUT, of course, with a house full of 3 kids and 3 dogs, I inevitably use the money on something more needed and practical. I would LOVE to win this…it looks gorgious and super fun (my oasis time from those 6 critters mentioned above). LOL.
    Love your blog and your approach to knitting and life in general seems all to familiar to me. Haha

  59. Carolynn Karp

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:31 pm

    Love the chunky wool blankets sooooooooo much! I’m recovering from a half marathon and knitting is the best way to keep my hands busy (and away from the refrigerator)!

  60. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:32 am

    Wow Carolynn
    You had me at half marathon! Good for you!! Incredible. I only run when being chased or if there is only one cookie left in the cookie jar.

    Big love!!

    I’m soooo in LOVE with this chunky knit blanket I can’t even stand it! It looks so yummy and soft, I could get lost in it for dayzzzz!!!

  66. Debi

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:32 pm

    So, I’ve totally not been knitting lately…been in a slump. If I win your blankie kit, I could so get started knitting again, cause I feel totally inspired! What I need is for somebody (you) to put all the stuff I need together and set it down on my doorstep so I can pick it up and ignore all my responsibilities and start knitting again! After seeing this pale blue (fave color) softness, there’s no way I could refuse to knit it immediately. Well, it would take a while…but I would START immediately. And I wouldn’t stop till I finished…no housework, no dishes, no meals, no anything but knitting till it’s done! My poor hubby…OK, I’ll stop long enough to order a pizza. But that’s all. Can’t do anything else till it’s finished! So, you see, I just HAVE to win this blankie kit, cause if I don’t, how can I start knitting again??? I NEED this kit! Thanks in advance, cause I just KNOW I’m gonna win it!

    I love reading your posts and your blog!! I bought the pattern for your chunky wool blanket and loved making it. I would LOVE to win this blanket kit!! Thanks so much for the opportunity and for making your readers laugh out loud! xoxo

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:33 pm

    I’ve been working on a super chunky blanket myself for +/- a year with very little success because of the stupid jerko ends that need to be but can’t be woven in. I keep thinking of buying a pattern specifically to get some insight on dealing with that. Anyone else buy a pattern and have a review for it? I have pretty much figured out what the actual pattern is, just not the tips/tricks for, you know, finishing the dingdangle thing off with any success.

  69. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:35 am

    Hi Liberty,
    It’s amazing when you learn this one ahhhhhmazing tip for how to join the ends so you don’t have to weave in the bits and bobs. It has been a game changer in knitting. Email me, and I will share it with you.

    Big love,
    Lynne

    Love your blog! ???? Your knit chunky blanket is so precious. It’s amazing! I’d love to win this awesome kit. ???????? (ok, those are really chopsticks, but I couldn’t find a emoji for knitting. Why aren’t there are knitting emojis?!?) Thanks for considering me!

  72. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:36 am

    Chrissy! That’s a dang great question! Why are there no knitting emojis ? We need to invent one. Or use chopsticks. GENIUS.

    Happy knitting!

    Your thoughts: are simple and often bawdy, BUT, Lynne I bought the blankie and stuffed the kit in my carryon luggage to bring to Calagsry for my neice’s Wedding – it’s her gift. I had to promise airline security that I would NOT strangle or stab anyone with the needles. As if,,,

    I made it in two (count “Em TWO), evenings!!!! So I looked a little goofy at he wedding knitting a monster blankie. – in falsies yet —nails, not bazooms. I think i may be known now as the crazy auntie.

    Anywho, Granny wants one because it’s soooo squishy and gorgeous. Don’t it just figure?

    Warmly,

    Lisa

    Hi from Bristol, England. Came across your site as my girls wanted me to knit a cozy throw for their new home. I haven’t quite got round to it yet, lots of other knitting going on, but maybe this is the reason why!

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    First of all, thanks for making me smile this morning with this awesome blog post! I’m sorry you hurt yourself-I hope you’re feeling better!
    I smiled, not at your injury, but at the craziness that goes into running your own business and the lengths that we all go to! I’m always doing crazy stunts and camera angles to take photos of our products for our Instagram & blog.
    And I haven’t injured myself yet doing it…but I did manage to slip on our icy road here in Muskoka this winter and break my ankle…and a mama with four kids under 9, one of whom is a crazy 22 month old boy who never stops, cannot be sidelined with her feet up! It has been a challenging winter, with my poor husband taking on more work than usual. I still have four weeks to go in the cast and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have this amazing kit to make my dream blanket while I finish healing! Sending hugs and healing vibes your way! I’ve been praying for healing for your husband also. So much love going your way!

    I loooooove the blankets and sock story. You always make me laugh and feel better about my day!! Like today, the fact that there’s 4 kids under 3 here today and I was already thinking it’s gotta be 5 o’clock somewhere at 8 am, it’s awesome to read your blogs and know that I am not alone out here and the struggle is real!! lol

  104. Lydia O'Brien

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:41 pm

    I love love reading your blog…The very first time I have ever knitted was when I saw your blog for the chunky blanket. So now I’m an expert (hehehe) thanks too you. I’m knitting another one as we speak bc my neighbor saw my blanket and loved it….and….me and my big mouth said….oh I’ll make you one….sure….I’m hoping it continues to snow all the way in April so I can complete this flipen blanket….
    Thank you again and let us know when the ‘wool sock’ trial starts….I’ll watch it religiously like I did OJ’s.
    Sincerely
    Lydia from upstate New York.

  105. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:49 am

    hahahaha Lydia, I definitely think I need to muster up some revenge on my socks! I love how you have knit so many blankets….you are my kinda gal. Doesn’t it just FEEL sooooo good? So, you have a lot lot a lot of blankets in your house too? Look out. I’m moving in.
    PS. hide all your socks.

    I just started knitting… far too cold out to do my wood projects/furniture making.
    I’d love to win this kit… do you think this blanket would make a good wedding gift?? That’s the plan if this blanket feels/looks/turns out ah-mazing.

    And just to add… I recently bought the linen duvet I read about on your blog. In white. I LOVE it! Thank you for the recommendation!

  108. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:51 am

    Love, love, love reading your stories. I’m ready to grab my needles and hibernate til my yarns all gone. A chunky blanket is on my to-do list. Way before painting my curtain rod so it matches my galvanized pipe lamp!

  113. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 8:52 am

    Thank you Rozelle for the lovely compliment on the kit. I swear, I love love love love love packaging them so they look GORGEOUS to open. I’m tired of only get bills in the mail LOL.. I think it is time for BEAUTY to arrive at the door instead. If I can’t have Channing Tatum at my door, I’m going for the beauty of a knit kit. haha.

    Big love and happy knitting!

    I love you! You are just as crazy as I am! You are also fighting with the awful C word as have I which helps make us even crazier.

    Love your patterns! They are negative thought blowers; no brainers which is excellent.

    Thank you and much love to you and your family.

  118. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 9:24 am

    Ha Ginny!! Love that one! A ‘negative thought blower’. It’s true… when a knitting pattern is a no brainer… it is so relaxing and yet keeps your mind busy enough to blow those negative thoughts away.

    Thanks for the love !! Sending it right back atcha. Lynne xx

  123. Darci McMichael

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:47 pm

    Morning Lynne , I have not tried making a blanket yet more of a dishcloth knitter. Wool is expensive but maybe I will win the kit. You are really funny and enjoy reading the blog. Thanks again Darci

  124. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 11:26 am

    Thanks for the love Darci ! Yes, wool does cost more than acrylic foooooshur, but the weight and feel is nicer too. Have you ever tried a wool/ acrylic blend? They cost less and they are pretty good sometimes too! Annnnnnnnd you are a dishcloth knitter? Very cool. Those are so practical and pretty!

    Lynne xx

    Beware of soft, snuggly knit socks…they’ll cozy up to you pretending to be your friend. Next thing you know, they’ve rolled you over and under the bed like some random dust bunny.

    Love your posts! Would be thrilled to win this giveaway knit kit!

  128. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 11:27 am

    Hi Pam,

    So true! Those socks can be evil. haha. Like a high school friend that tells you that you look good, when you are wearing the most hideous outfit of life. #HighSchoolFlashbacks LOL !!

    I would love to try a chunky knit blanket with one of your kits. I am currently knitting one with acrylic that is nice but I would like to try the wool also. I did purchase your size 50 needles which I love! They are made well and did not fall apart like the ones I had purchased at a hobby store where I live. I hope I am the winner of a wool blanket kit! Hurray!

  133. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 11:32 am

    Hi Phyllis ! Thanks for your purchase of the chunky knit needles! Aren’t they beautiful? Yes, the wool is a whole new experience for the blanket! It has a beautiful weight and feels ahhhhmazing too.

    Big love and happy knitting!

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:48 pm

    Love these blankets! And I love your photos of them. I just have to find some of that “free” time to knit one up. I know it is around here somewhere!

    BTW my socks tried to murder me too! They threw me down one whole stair (yup – one) and broke my foot. I could hear them laughing at me, as I was left broken on the floor. Stupid socks – why do i love them so much?

  135. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 11:55 am

    Right Marie? Socks can be so insensitive LOL! And broke your foot? Erhhhhmergerd, what were they thinking?! Stoopid fellers. ha!

    I would love to try knitting again and what a better way to start than by knitting a blanket!? My teenage daughter took up knitting last year while in treatment for an eating disorder and made a gorgeous soft blanket for herself. Now I have to show her I have the skills too!! Beautiful stuff!

  140. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 1:52 pm

    OMG! My knitting just sprained my ankle… I was carrying my knitting basket, tripped on the wool that fell out, and it was me & the floor up close and personal. I feel your pain. it was a crafting crime. It was knot good. I’m spring broke-n… I’ve had a lot of time to come up with puns with my leg up on a chair. Best of luck with the healing bruises! Thanks for the chance to win the contest!

    Hey GF! The one thing I’ve never learned to do is knit. I took a class when my MIL was in the hospital so I missed a few classes. I have 1/2 of a sweater somewhere in a closet that I will never finish. I’ll send it to you if you want!!! Maybe if I worked with the BIG needles it would go faster………and maybe not…….Ha!

  150. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 2:07 pm

    AuntiePatch !! How are ya girly…other than having a mysterious half sweater in your life? hahahahaaha LOL.

    I’ve been avoiding making a chunky knit blanket because I don’t want to waste my time finding the perfect yarn. This yarn looks amazing and I want it!!!

  153. Victoria

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:52 pm

    These blankets are gorgeous! Once I finish the socks that are killing me (not from falling but from the tiny needles) I will have to get started on one of these.

  154. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 2:09 pm

    You are my hero Victoria. I tried to knit socks once, and ONE of them was perfect, and the other one would fit King Kong. haha!

    I love this site. Such gorgeous products as well as patterns and ideas! I am a newbie to knitting (well somewhat) and admire your sense of humor in the face of some of life’s crappier parts, more than you can imagine. Kindest regards.

  161. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    Yeah, Cheryl, life has an uncanny way of dealing up the crappy parts just when you least expect it, huh? Pfffft. Sending you some love and laughs along the way… Lynne xx

    March 26th, 2018 at 12:55 pm

    Hi Lynne,
    I “lurv” your blog. I started with you a couple of years ago and love that your writing more often now. Throughout a year filled with family illness (cancer) and stress, I have turned to knitting… it’s been how I’ve carved out a little island of sanity in my life … it’s crazy…. but I love it. My next fun little step will be to pour a glass of wine while I knit… you make it look so fun. I’ll be toasting you as I do!! Thank you for the beautiful blanket patterns. I hope to make them someday!! Take care Lynne!

  164. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 2:12 pm

    Thanks Jane for sticking with me through my growing pains. PS. I’m still going through them ahaha… but life is like that. I feel more inspired to write these days, and it makes a HUGE difference that you took the time to write that and let me know. I’m so grateful to read those words!

    Happy knitting and liquid fermented grapes sipping.

    I told people knitting can be dangerous and no one listened to me! I’m glad you’re ok bruised ego & all! I’ve fallen & taken a header to the floor almost cracking my head on my stone fireplace *cries*. Luckily no one was around to witness my fail! I love the chunky blanket & love the colors! Good luck to all who enter! Happy Knitting!

    Ok, I gotta say thank you for your awesome humor!! Totally what I need.
    I would really love to win this kit but I think that Anna has everyone beat…
    I have 4 daughters but 3 are teenagers not toddlers and I have no broken bones, just a broken down car.

    Sending good vibes your way from Canada!! 🙂

    Hi Lynne 🙂
    You are so awesome to make time to write so many replies! We are in Langley BC so not next door neighbours, but close enough for a visit. We have a horse hobby farm and a totally country home that could sure use some of your amazing decorating ideas! I love your message to your mom, Peaches <3, I have nick names for all four of my daughters. Happy Fridaylicious!!!

    I would love to win this kit because I considered buying one but I do not knit, so if I won the kit and it turned out like total crap I wouldn’t be out any cashola (pretty sure that’s a word).

  180. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 11:25 am

    oh yeah, that’s totally a word ???? CASHOLA should definitely be in the dictionary somewhere. teehee.

    All I could do upon reading of your unfortunate demise, was laugh out loud.. I’m sorry….. well not so much.
    But the blankets are clouds of comfort and refuge. Beautiful and begging to wrap up sick teen, storytime toddler or a dear woman looking for some me time.

  183. Andi

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    Lynne,

    I appreciate your candid approach to life. Your posts keep my abs in shape negating daily trips to the gym! Love the chunky knit blanket – I was in the middle of one myself when my left circular needle abruptly ended it’s relationship with the right, cutting the cord – literally.

  184. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 11:24 am

    Hi Andi !

    Whoops ! That’s a drag!! What are you going to do now? I wouldn’t suggest duct tape LOL. Did you buy your circular knitting needles from me? If so, let me know and I will happily send you a gorgeous new pair right away. I’ll even add some pretty knitting swag and bonus knitty scissors.

    Big love and happy knitting!!
    Lynne xx

  185. Andi

    April 6th, 2018 at 3:44 pm

    Oh no – The needles weren’t from you! The ends were held together with plastic – although duct tape might have done a better job ????Fortunately I had an interchangeable cable long enough to insert and save the work until I budget to get better needles and cable!

  186. Jennifer Cosby

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:01 pm

    Your life sounds so much like mine. It’s such a relief to read the humour you have or maybe it’s just because I’ve been there. I have tears rolling down my cheeks. Needed this laughter so much. Love the blanket. It is beautiful. Knitting is my stress relief and get away from life .

  188. Gena

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:03 pm

    Given my near fatal car accident two years ago it’s amazing to be able to still knit. I’d LOVE to have such a wonderful project to prove my brain is healing from the wreck.

  190. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 11:22 am

    Wow Elizabeth ! That sounds treacherous and tragic all at once. I am soooooo happy you are still alive and on this beautiful earth. May you continue to heal.

    Big love and healing vibes …

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:14 pm

    OOOMMMGGG Lynee – I’m doing it. I’m leaving you a comment about that hunky, chunky blanket that looks like if I crawled under it, nobody in the frickin’ world would ever find me or bother me again!!!! I’m pretty sure I could manage those honking knitting needles without losing and eye and guess what? I made a sweater for one of my babies about twenty years ago and the sleeves were just right so I know all about tension and stuff like that. Yes, I am a knitter. That’s right. It would be magic. I know it would. Pick me, pick me.

    Beautiful blanket! I downloaded a chunky knit blanket pattern from your blog a couple years ago! Knit blankets for my daughter’s and daughter in law. They loved them. So excited to see these kits. Like beautiful!

  213. Penny Houle

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:16 pm

    Oh, my goodness, your newsletter last week about the treacherous socks couldn’t have been more timely. I’d had my own bizarre sock experience which I’d shared on my own website, and then your story came along and I had to share it with my subscribers to prove that socks are out to get us! Unfortunately, I couldn’t provide a link to share with them at the time. I did my best quoting and directing folks to your site, but I don’t’ think it had the same effect as you telling it. Any chance you can provide a webpage version of your newsletters in the future? That would be awesome for sharing purposes. 🙂 I LOVE your newsletters so much; they always brighten my day. You are proof positive that laughter is the best medicine. A chunky blanket isn’t bad either. 😉 Would love one of my own. Much love & laughter to you and yours!

  214. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Penny! That’s a brilliant idea.. and I never thought to share the web version of it, because I was like… wait.. does anyone ever read the web version? LOL. I will do that for my next newsletter. So watch for it 🙂

    thanks for the awesome tip!!

    Big love, big laughs!

    Hi Lynne! Just want to say thank you for sharing all of your amazing stories and for welcoming all of us into your home. The colors are timeless. I love all the pics you post and enjoy your sense of humor even more. I can’t help but relate to almost everything you say! I’m so excited that you have a giveaway for the this beautiful kit. I must confess I am a newbie to the knit world since I’ve crocheted for so many years, so this would be extremely helpful to me with making my first knit blanket ever. I thank you for the opportunity and also to all of you who share the love for Lynne’s blog…wassup!!! Happy Spring!

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:36 pm

    First, the photography on your site is sugar for this addicted soul. I get the same sweet, blurry eyed, mind-melding sensation when I see your pix! Not kidding! And regarding the chunky throw, I can feel it warming me up right now, which is why I hope to win it — reality really is better in this case, for real. I respect and pay tribute to your product packaging too. It’s a wondrous part of the total experience as you clearly understand. Glad you are back with us …

  242. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 4:03 pm

    Thank you Nikki !! So sweet of you to say. I’m going to FINALLY write an ebook on how to do photos the same way ( hint : I just push all the buttons and hope something magical happens)…

    AND

    I’m thinking I should leave the duct tape part out of the tutorial. hahaha

    Big love

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:37 pm

    I want to know what you did with the socks afterward? I think I would do nasty things to them in retaliation!

    I’ve been wanting to knit a chunky blanket for a long time. I love the colours, but I think the cream is my fave. I’d love to win some of this beautiful wool, because I just can’t swing buying it right now.

    Love reading the blog and your Pinterest! Keep having adventures, but watch out for socks. They’re shifty buggers, some of them.

  244. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 4:01 pm

    Socks are dangerous, I tell ya Kelli. Totally dangerous. LOL. I put the socks away in a time out corner and told them to never look at me sideways again. I sure taught them. Now my feet are freezing 🙂 Lynne xx

    Greetings from Oz. I guess postage here may rule me out of the comp. But from across the Pacific I love your fun newsletters. They make my day!! I’m more of a sewing freak I must admit but it’s your enthusiasm and ideas on colour and yarn and patterns that have inspired me to knit. You’ve made me laugh with the aerial photo shoot and the socks. After the chunky blanket pattern arrived I finally used up done chunky merino wool I had. You inspire me. I can’t wait to try the chunky blanket pattern.

  250. Lynne Knowlton

    I am a caregiver, and I think I am losing my mind. As I go through my days, I feel like I am perpetually holding my breath, waiting for the other shoe to drop. I need an escape, and have never knitted in my life…think it might be time, because I need to find ME again, and take care of her for a change!
    I love your blog, love your honesty, and you make me laugh, and cry. All good!!!

  254. Theresa Brink

    March 26th, 2018 at 1:43 pm

    I started following you because I so loved the style of your home, absolutely fabulous. Then I so enjoyed your blogs, made me laugh out loud and touched my heart too. Now your gorgeous chunky blankets are so beautiful, I’ve decided to start knitting again after a too long time away. I even bought a set of your needles. What an inspiration you are to this young (Thinking only) Crone.. Sure could use the Yarn in your Kit (hint hint)
    Love you,

    I am sitting in my dermatologists office, ready to get naked (yikes!) and I’m laughing out loud about you and your duct tape. Parts of me could use some duct tape right about now…and a big chunky wool blanket! At least I don’t have dinner with this man…

  256. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:57 pm

    LOL Rhonda, dang.. you could have used that fancy pants colourful duct tape and really impressed the doc with a bright and colourful display. 🙂

    Beautiful wool blanket! I honestly do not like chunky yarns, much like knitting with them, but I fell in love with the Veronica pattern. I’m going to give it a go as it’s my favorite stitch!

  311. Nancy Johnson

    March 26th, 2018 at 2:31 pm

    I hopped over to your blog last October? from Karen’s the Art of Doing Stuff – That Time I lived in a Tree and Tried to Relax…and was immediately smitten by your style and sense of humour. Your posts have made me envious, made me laugh and made me cry. I am one of those people who thinks hey, I can do that but it seems whatever I attempt has sadly ended up being the after, “nailed it” picture. I tried arm knitting and a friend asked, “where did you get the pirate hammock”? So when I saw your fabulous give-a-way….well, I would so love to win one of your chunky knit blankets. That way, I can prepare burial arrangements for the hammock. Thank you!

  312. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:48 pm

    Erhmmergerd Nancy, I just laughed out loud at the pirate hammock. Still laughing. Still laughing. Thanks for joining along on my blog and I just LOVE Karen too. She is amazeeee. I plan on kidnapping her again this year for a treehouse getaway. I may have to blindfold her and kidnap her while she is sleeping. ha! Lynne xx

    March 26th, 2018 at 2:42 pm

    I was not planning on knitting. Not planning on knitting a blanket. Don’t even know how to knit. But I can’t stand looking at your blankets and admitting I would do anything to gave one. So, I will make my sister knit one for me. Great idea Millie! Sisters love to do things to make sisters happy!
    I need a pattern that is 6 inches longer on the bottom for my tall husband. One that is 6 inches wider on one side for my brittney. 6 inches longer on the other side for my moose of a springer and 12 inches longer on the top because that is normally all that is left for me.

  324. Dj

    March 26th, 2018 at 2:45 pm

    I’m starting a blanket for my daughter … for the third time!!! Too many stitches, too few … its trial and error, with lots of emphasis on error! So, what I wouldn’t love more than to win a chunky blanket just for me!!! Too many exclamation pounts? sorry … bad habit I’ve been told. Can’t help myself.

    I have been wanting to have this blanket for over a year but wanted to make it myself and was too lazy or preoccupied to assemble all the necessities but YOU did it so I just ordered the kit and can’t wait to start it. If I win the contest I will have 2!! Even better. Thanks

  337. Donna Marchlewski

    March 26th, 2018 at 3:00 pm

    They’re scoffers. This family of mine. They clearly don’t understand my desire to be covered up with a big ole blanket, head to toe, well, with the exception of one foot hanging out, you know, so I can breathe. Sure, I live in Florida. I know it can be hot as the dickens outside, but on the inside it’s like a late spring day. (Thank you my hard working A/C.) As the day ends, I may, or may not, shamelessly sprawl on the sofa, all cozied up, binge watching my shows or reading my books.

    The problem, well sorta, is that I have three young grandchildren that have taken up permanent residence in our home. While we absolutely LOVE that we have the honor of “training up” this next generation, it does not discount the fact that they are all BLANKET THIEF’S!. I have my limits you know. My most favorite blanket is now claimed by a small, six year old child.

    Anyhoo, all that to say, yes, I would love to have that big, fat, chunky, wool blanket in my life. It would live on my sofa, or bed, or desk chair, or, well, it would be wherever I am ’cause of those little blanket snatchers wandering about… thank you. I love you.

  338. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 10:04 am

    Ahhhh Donna, you sound like theeeeeee best Grandma of life. I really believe you need to adopt me. I also ADORE that you are going to ‘train up’ the next generation. F’real… it’s so lovely to knit and can you imagine how many kids can operate a video game but not knitting needles? We need to start a knitting generation train up. haha.

    Sending you huge [[ HUGS ]] for the epic-ness you do in taking care of the kiddos and knitting blankets. You rock out loud.

    Lynne xx

Ive wanted to knit a blanket for as long as I can remember, always ogling at the patterns and wool. Unfortunately my need and my cash flow aren’t the same – hence thanks again for the opportunity!

I kind of need this; I am trying to get back into knitting and who can’t use another blanket, especially home knit?

    Contrary to popular belief, you canNOT drink wine and teach yourself how to knit at the same time. Or the next day, even. But, I digress. I bought that luscious yarn (not a fan of the color I chose, but oh well) and taught myself how to knit (durn, those biggy needles are hard to get used to). I was doing ok, a few holes here and there but, hey, it’s my first blanket (yes, with $$$$ yarn but I like to live dangerously). I decided I would take a look at the pattern. “Knit with TWO yarns together. NOT THREE). I’m still unraveling because I will come up one ball short and I refuse to give up. It’s unraveling quite nicely, surprise surprise. I would love to win this kit (now that I think I know how to knit) but, if I don’t, I will buy the blue yarn anyway (when it comes back into stock). Or, maybe I will buy the cream yarn. Because. Cream. You know. HUGS! Love your blog! Wish we lived closer! Cheers!

    Hahaha Jane, you are hilarious and good on ya for learning how to knit! What yarn colour did you purchase? Was it from the Etsy seller? Did you use the super big straight needles or circular needles? I have so many questions and so little time. hahaaha.

    The blue wool that we have is soooooooo pretty. Like. WOW pretty. The creamy wool is too, but the blue stands out like oh la la !

    Wish we lived closer too. I like how you live dangerously. LOL!

    Holy cow that is a beautiful blanket! I am totally on board for knitting to be therapy, I am a teacher (elementary) and use knitting as a way to knot (see what I did there) plot the demise of incompetent staff and parents. On top of that we are coming in to winter here and I am in need of another blanket, pleeeaasee pick me!!! As a fellow blogger as well who has also dug out interesting things from the couch I need a cosy warm Betty for my lap!

  383. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:30 pm

  409. Caitlin

    March 26th, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    I started knitting after I took a not-so-graceful tumble from the top of a climbing wall in January. I have 4 weeks until I can begin easing my way back into the bi-pedal world and I’m sure working on a gorgeous chunky blanket would be an excellent way to fill the time.

  410. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:22 pm

    Caitlin,

    You had me at climbing wall. IMPRESSIVE!!

  424. Marlene

    March 26th, 2018 at 5:27 pm

    Your blankets look wonderfully cushy and squishy and all the ishy things blankets should be. I’d be thrilled to win one of your kits! And macrame? Oh yeah, I really rocked that back in the 70s (I’m sure you weren’t even born then – will flattery get me a blanket kit?). Anyhoo, I’ve been thinking about getting back into that one of these days. Although the last thing I need is another craft lol.

  425. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    Flattery always helps Marlene. LOL LOL LOL but unfortunately I’m f’n ancient hahaha and I was born in the 60’s.

    Macrame is definitely going to be my new bestie soon. It’ll be like a childhood flashback. ha!

    I love how cozy this whole blog is. I recently moved to North Carolina from Wisconsin and needed to find a new hobby. Turns out knitting was not in my DNA haha! But I’ve made myself a new hobby: cozying up with a cup of tea and looking at this blog! (Also daydreaming that my blanket that i’m cuddled up under was a pinteresty as that chunky knit blanket)

  428. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:17 pm

    Ahhhh thanks for the blog love Katherine !!!!!!! Much much much appreciated! Happy cozy-ing up. Lynne xx

  431. Samantha Favors

    March 26th, 2018 at 5:40 pm

    I got really excited about a package that I saw when I pulled in the drive…I thought it was my yarn I ordered a week ago. I grabbed the bag ran into the house and opened the bag…protein packs…PROTEIN PACKS!?!?! Apparently it wasn’t my package. It’s been a rough day!

    Your blanket is beautiful and I love both of the patterns as well as your blog. So comfortable and inviting.

  432. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:16 pm

    Oh my goodness Samantha, lunch bag let down. hahaha. Protein packs? How dare they show up before the wool. Priorities. LOL!!!

    I made your chunky blanket of each of my 3 children as Christmas gifts. I love them, so squishy and soft. I would love to make one for my house. With March being the new February in terms of weather, I’ll keep knitting. Thanks.

  435. Laura Crossett

    March 26th, 2018 at 5:51 pm

    Hey Lynne, I must admit I’ve been procrastinating for likely 2 years now on making one your GORGEOUS blankets. It’s all part of my retirement plan…coming soon hopefully. To knit and watch tv and macrame. The last time I knit I was in my teens and made a royal blue v-neck sweater…also the last time I macramed. Got it all done, well except for sewing it together. Guess I was a procrastinator back then too. If I am lucky enough to win this I can even save you shipping costs and pick it up (being from Southampton and all). Fingers and toes crossed!

  436. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:15 pm

    Ha ! Good point Laura! Or better yet.. maybe one of these days you should pop over and have a treehouse visit and we can stare at all our unfinished knitting projects. LOL!

    Big love!! Lynne xx

    I need to channel that sass you have while I knit this upcoming winter! It’s winter soon in my part of the world and the only reason I look forward to it is so I can snuggle up on the couch with a comfy blanket with my little one accompanied by a hot cup of tea. Bliss.

I am the chiefest of all procrastinators known or not known on the earth since the days of Adam and Eve… these kids are going to be in college before I get them done, and now here YOU are trying to distract me and get me knitting !!!!! Heck, I have yet to do my income tax by the soon arriving date in April !!! Holy Catfish ! these scrapbook thingies have been sitting in my guest room and migrated to the dining room, back into the guest room and even on two trips to Florida. !! it is all still mostly in boxes in the guestroom, where I do have my folding tables set up since about 3 weeks ago but the stuff is still in the boxes. Please don’t let me pick up knitting things…. uh no. And the IRS of the USA is calling my name……. I cant take it !

I am a knitter of sorts I guess, I make little knitted hats for the premature baby unit in our local hospital I’ve lost count of how many I’ve knitted but it sure helps me keep my weight down, when my hands are busy they are not shovelling candies in my mouth!!! ????????., I stay slim and the babies stay warm win win ????????. Keep on blogging, smiling and staying strong, oh and yes I love your chunky blankets.❤️

    Awhhhh Wendy ! That is so sweet that you give back to so many. I bet all the preemie Moms & Dads just LOVE you and the special gift! So thoughtful.

    I need to learn that little trick of knitting and NOT shovelling candies in my mouth. hahah.

    Big love and happy knitting!

    Well I love your latest creation….your new knitted blanket. xoxo And I think I should win because Veronica was my mom…… and your nana. LOL And after all I think I might have taught you how to knit…..or wait, did you teach me? Who cares, I think I deserve a prize just for raising you. Or a gold star at least :o) Really, you do beautiful job creating the patterns and knitting. xxxoooo

  472. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 3:06 pm

    Hi Momma!!

    So cool that we named the blanket after Nana, huh? Yes, you did teach me how to knit … and all I can think about is how many times you had to fix those holes in my knitting. Like, 53 rows back.. I’d discover a hole in my scarf. LOL.

    With love, from the ONE knitted legging gal (OMG, funniest Christmas ever).
    Love you Mom!

    Hi Lynne,
    I have been drooling over your kits for a few weeks now. Like you, I find knitting relaxing. It is like meditation after a day of teaching a room full of 8 year olds ???? I would LOOOOOVE to win a kit! xo

    I have recently joined 2 girlfriends for as we call it “whine, wine, wool” knitting nights. So this most beautiful kit is what I need to win for a WWW night project.

    Love love love your site Lynne … always enjoy a good laugh when I visit, and we don’t get a lot to laugh about these days do we? … I shall buy a kit so let the person who needs it most win … and enjoy the experience of knitting and being able to admire the result of a great hobby. My wonderful mum introduced me to the wold of knitting – I have taught my girls and son so they can keep this delightful tradition from being lost in this fast paced world … With your wonderful site and eeeezzy patterns and exciting ideas it is keeping knitting within the reach of everyone !!! I will be making my rug with my 5 and 3 year old grand children so they can enjoy the process as well … keeping it real … love your work … Cheers to all who enjoy knitting … from down-under in Australia

  483. Maggie

    March 26th, 2018 at 8:14 pm

    I so admire your way of embracing whatever life throws your way. Knitting is cheaper than seeing a psychiatrist and more rewarding: you have something to show for your efforts. Life is good and your throw would make anyone’s better.

    Oh.my.goodness.gracious. this blog ALONE has me subscribing..(and wanting to learn how to knit!). Mind you, I know how to crochet, and macrame, but I’ve always wanted to learn how to knit. Now you’ve given me a wonderful reason!

    Hi from Sunny Barbados!! Yes, it’s true, I’m a knitter in Barbados. I’m actully finding people who are interested as we all end up in the cold at some point in time!!!
    I really think your blanket would make a great baby maker blanket! One son getting married and I want to start the groove ASAP. I have an address in Miami and will let you know how it all worked out if I win your kit. Fingers crossed, Heather

    I love these blankets! They look so squishy and amazing!!! I’d love to win this kit because quite frankly, being a full time college student, I don’t really have the kind of money to buy awesome quality wool…. or patterns… or really anything that costs more than like $10, even with a coupon. Winning this kit would make me so so so happy.

    Wow ! ! !
    How long did it take you to write this?
    I wondered if it was going to take me until April 1 to read it – and it would end with “APRIL FOOLS!'”
    Glad it didn’t, because I love the blanket! Could I possibly win it???

  500. Lynne Knowlton

    March 27th, 2018 at 7:55 am

    Hi Paula,
    I must be the worlds loooooooongest writer, because it truly takes me weeks to write a blog post. I get so excited and involved in writing it… and I can never shorten it to a wee couple of paragraphs. I think a story is way more fun 🙂

    I’ll never be one of those bloggers that can churn out content every day in wee little snippits of short form content. I’m an old fart like that. So to answer your question… nope… it isn’t April Fools and I hope my blog post wasn’t too long for your liking.

    Big love and happy knitting !

    March 26th, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    I wish I could give you a hug. I’m sorry you fell. If it makes you feel any better I once fell face first in a restaurant parking lot at lunchtime. The place was packed so everybody and their mother saw my incident. I was battered and bleeding, but I jumped up before anybody could check on me. I hobbled into the restaurant bathroom to clean myself up and wait for my face to turn back to a normal shade. Haha! It felt like everybody was staring at me when I finally emerged. I got over the embarrassment, but not ripping a big hole in my favorite jeans. Sigh… I still miss those jeans.

  503. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 2:58 pm

    Ohhhh my goodness Cindy. That sounds tragic. LOL. You poor thing. Well… at least you didn’t have toilet paper on the bottom of your shoe when you came out of the bathroom. Oh wait. Maybe you did. That is basically the story of my life. I’m THAT gal with the toilet paper on the shoe or my skirt tucked in my underwear. Now you don’t feel bad anymore, do you? LOL LOL LOL

    Big love!

    March 26th, 2018 at 10:23 pm

    I remember many, many moons ago, when I first learnt to knit. How I loved changing a strand of wool into a blanket, scarf, hat…. The joy of creating something new by your own hand! I recently took up knitting again, and was so pleased to see sights like yours – that presented knitting as an art form, a skill, a craft, a way to create something you love, to give/share with those that you love. Your photos, despite the mishaps with phones on ceilings and slipping socks, are sublime, tranquil, calming & inspiring. Keep up the great work.

    This is soo on my list to make, just as soon as I stop melting in this summer heat, I really dislike Summer, ugh. I swear (not swear, swear but promise swear) I have made a galijjion ice cubes and now there is only one bag left, someone has obviously been drinking too many ‘home made Baileys’ this season, not me, but ya know…….somebody 😉

    Me and my ice cubes are seriously waiting for winter and then the knitting can begin =)
    Hmm, I wonder if the local store would let me knit in their cool room??
    I could knit a lot sooner that way =)

    I love the two blanket patterns and would love to win either blanket kit. Blankets are fun to knit because it is cosy and becomes a beautiful gift for someone right before your eyes. Knitting a blanket is a perfect companion with a good movie or series on Netflix and a glass of wine. 🙂

    PS: hope you feel better after the “incident” and that your ego is healing!

  527. Mary Kay

    March 26th, 2018 at 10:55 pm

    The yarn looks scrumptious! I’ve been knitting a blanket with one of your patterns but not with good yarn like this… (And, it’s been taking forever.) Thank you for these great chunky blanket patterns!

  528. Lynne Knowlton

    March 27th, 2018 at 7:28 am

    Hi Mary Kay,

    I did the same thing for years. I knit with yarns that were affordable, but acrylic… and while they are good for practice (YAY!) I eventually tried a 100% soft warm wool one. GAME CHANGER. The good news is, you’ve got the practice in now with all the other yarns. You go girl ! Keep knitting! Keep doing! You rock!

    Hi Lynne

    I’m so in love with your blog, homes and beautiful pastel soft creations. I was at the point where I felt our bedroom colours etc is not as soft looking, aesthetically pleasing, inviting and comfy as I wanted it. Then I discovered your blog and it changed everything!!! I’ve always desired a beautiful bedroom/bed… alluring. I want to walk into our bedroom and feel an uncontrollable crazy urge to fall onto the bed and melt away in softness. You have inspired me and I’m so excited. What I would like to know is, I live in South Africa and I’m not sure if you sell your knitting kits internationally? Secondly, I’m very interested in your knitted scatter cushion covers as desplayed on your bed with the chunky blanket. Do you have a patter for these?

    Live. Love. Knit **

    Seriously girl, you make my day whenever I read your blog/emails. Today, for instance, I haven’t stopped laughing at the saying “Step aside coffee. This is a job for alcohol” and this is why I love you. Your site is far more than knitting some days it is everything!.. Your chunky knit would be like having a warm hug from a friend I have never met but feel so aligned with.. I’ve never knitted before but this chunky knit has me hankering to learn the craft. as Rhonda below said – it’s just coming into knitting season downunder.

  547. Lynne Knowlton

    March 27th, 2018 at 7:23 am

    Oh heck yeah Mairead, there are just some days that are meant for alcohol. Coffee has no place for it. Unless the alcohol is in the coffee. hahaha.

    It is realllllllly super easy to learn how to knit. I think you should just go for it. With all my chunky knit blankets, I only use 2 basic stitches. KNIT AND PURL. Once you know how to do that, you can do anything 🙂 xx

    I had been knitting scarves with the knit stitch only… until I found your blog and a whole new world opened into my knitting realm. Your talent made me dive in to knit more intrigent stitches and I’m on my 2nd blanket. You are amazing and I would love to win one of your creative products… You definitely make a unique impression on your knitting buddies. So… thank you!!! And I’m wishing you and your family all the best!!!!

    What gorgeous blankets! Harold Raines, a former editor of the NYT, wrote a book called “Fly Fishing Through the Midlife Crisis”. Fly fishing was his salvation. I opt for knitting, which always has the ability to create a calm place where strength can be regrouped. And you get beautiful pieces like your blankets.

  551. Lynne Knowlton

    March 27th, 2018 at 7:20 am

    I think i should write a book Deborah ! Now I need a fly fishing knitting version title. How about ‘ I knit. What’s your superpower?’ hahaha Or ” I knit, so I don’t unravel ” LOL.

    Big love and happy knitting!

    Love love LOVE these blankets, one of them would have been amazing on my couch! Especially here in Norway, where the winter is long and cold.

  554. Peggy Andrews

    March 27th, 2018 at 4:48 am

    OK Lynne you talked me into it. I’m entering your contest. My Mother taught me to knit 60 years ago…. My gosh seems like yesterday….. Lately I’ve been reminiscing about those wool socks she would make my Father and myself. Every Christmas you could count on a stocking full of socks and mitts and maybe, just maybe, an orange from China. and nuts from Brazil. In fact, she even knitted us those matching heavy sweaters… you know the ones with the deer and moose on the front with big leather buttons!

    So, if Mom could do that; “Why can’t I knit a beautiful blanket for my friend?” My friend really needs some good warm hugs! If I win, it certainly would give me the ‘kick in the butt’ required to start knitting. Also the older I get the more I realize, I am just a ‘recycled teenager’. I’m wanting to do all the things I did as a young women… well almost everything. Don’t think the boobs could handle bundgy jumping now!

    Hi Peggy!
    Isn’t that the great thing about knitting? It’s like riding a bike. The skill sticks with you forever. woooohooooo!!! LOVE.

    Seriously tho, that kind of reminiscing sounds epic, beautiful, incredible. What a treat to have that for Christmas morning! Beautiful !

    I hope you get a chance to knit a beautiful blanket for your friend.

    Big love,
    Lynne xx

    Thank you! I have only ever knitted scarves and one gloomy November day I was scrolling YouTube and I came across your video of you making your chunky knit blanket and you made me laugh so much. Then I saved my birthday money to get the wool. I have nearly finished it and it been a joy to do!! Can’t wait to try the next one!! thanks

    I would really love to win your blanket kit but I can’t promise I will knit it fast. I have just pulled out a scarf that I started knitting two years and many gifts ago.

  559. Lynne Knowlton

    March 27th, 2018 at 7:06 am

    Kathy! You need to meet my Mom. She still has a scarf that she started knitting for me when I was a new born baby. hahaahaha.

    Okay, truth serum here.. that’s what I love about these blankets…you can pick up where you left off (even years later LOL) and it is easy to just knit from there. No counting, no trying to figure out if it’s the left arm or right toe haha… it’s so easy when it’s a blanket.

    Hope you knit a chunky wool blanket! xx

    Hi Lynne. Your blogs are a real “pick-me-up”. They’ve inspired me to pick up my knitting needles again :-):-):-):-)
    I would love to win your blanket kit, but so I can make my bed as comfy as yours looks, for when I’m Netflixing.

    You crack me up but you also inspire…funny: humor is like air to me, gotta have it, creative: your recipes for food and essential oils satisfies hunger, soulful: insights into a painful struggle with the hubs, You are a well-rounded woman that gently shows the way to a fulfilling life. Thank you for sharing all with us, tidy to messay. Love the kit – starting knitting as a child in Wisconsin. What else is there to do when snow flies? My mother owned a yarn shop, the Lamb’s End. Miss those “shopping” forays squeezing balls of delicious yarn. Now mother is gone and I am in Southern California where yarn shops vanished years ago. Knitting on the beach is not easy! Would i love the kit – fer sure dude!

    OMG! So sorry to read of your crash landing! I know you bruised your ego and other bits, but your description of it is funny (it’s not funny)! Yes, always opt for the alcohol on a flight! Maybe a few more throw pillows? Like on the floor around the bed? Super glad you weren’t seriously hurt! Be careful out there, we need you!

  571. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 9:28 am

    Hahah Jeanne! Good plan !! Next time I need to create a crash plan with throw pillows! I like how you think!

    I always love reading your posts because they make me laugh! I fell recently in a similar way, except I was trying to catch a bird that came in our house through the fireplace, and I crushed side table…..what is more than crushed? I don’t know, but that table was it. And I had the major bruises to show for it! (and bruised ego haha).
    I LOVE knitting, I LOVE chunky blankets, and I would LOVE to win this kit!

  580. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 2:37 pm

  605. Lynne Knowlton

    April 4th, 2018 at 2:33 pm

  617. Leanne G

    March 28th, 2018 at 11:22 pm

    I’m a newbie, somewhere in my genes lurk knitting skills handed down from Grandma (I hope). Thing is, I have never seen such beautiful stuff so artfully photographed, and “graphic designed” as what I have discovered on your site. So, what are you besides a knitter, designer, marketer, writer? I am inspired, and jealous, I admit, can’t help but think you put a heck of a lot of thought and creative juice into everything you do, despite being so aloof about it! Really. Amaze-balls! I will continue to snoop, and dream!

  618. Lynne Knowlton

    March 30th, 2018 at 11:59 am

    Hi Leanne! Thank you for your lovely comment. I’m totally blushing over here. So many compliments, I may not be able to get my head through the door. teehee. Really, THANK YOU.

    Yes, a ton of thought and creative juice happens. I can’t help it. I have the imagination that is crazier than a curly straw. ha.

    You have a good point tho! Maybe I should share an ebook teaching what I have learned along the way. Everything I do on the site is self taught. Photos, design, marketing, writing… so if I can learn it, anyone can 🙂

    I’m an old dog. It’s should be hard to teach me new tricks. ahha.

    Big love! Happy to share!

    March 29th, 2018 at 10:03 am

    I have never knit before — and I think that’s because I’ve never been inspired to. Your blog and AMAZING photos finally pushed me over the edge. Too bad I don’t live closer so I could get lessons too ::-)

  623. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 9:31 am

    Lynne,
    I found your blog December, 2016 while searching the net; I needed help understand a new knitting pattern (i’m Self taught). Your “chunky wool blanket” pattern was on your blog with a video tutorial. I learned more from your tutorial then any other video, u tube video or FB. When my friends saw the blankets they wanted me to teach them which of course I did. So, thanks again for your knowledge, teaching skills and patience.
    With love,
    Michelle
    P.s. I did purchase one of kits but would love love love to win one!,!! ????

    Gorgeous blanket for wine country, CA! Love your blog and treehouse! Gorgeous stuff and comfy vibes….love the blanket and hopefully, it’ll inspire me to learn to knit or maybe my husband will learn and it’ll be for me (more likely….he’s super handy and needs to learn to sit). Can’t wait for updates!

    Oh my… this makes me wish I could knit. One day that Brownie Badge will come my way. So….I need to win one cause knitting it…..well I can make pom poms with wool… but that’s it.

    Saying yes to a wool blanket that someone else makes is my favourite way to knit.

    I simply adore big fluffy blankets! Love, love, love, love! And I’ve only just learned to knit about a year or so ago. So what better combo is there, really? Except pie and ice cream. But I digress. 🙂

Prayers sent your way! As to the Knitting OMG u have encouraged and inspired me to get back to Knitting I made a throw for my Daughter this Easter after finding your Blog and as I am typing this email she sent me a pic that she is off to bed with her new blanket a Mother is always near. Love your Blog, your Knitting and oh the Beautiful Yarn!!

    Recently (very recently) I learned to knit and ran across your blog while looking for blanket patterns. Just had to order some big needles from you cause I love the look of these chunky blankets.
    Happy dance….I received my knitting needles a couple of days ago. Love the way they were packaged (even the mailing envelope looks nice). The bag for the needles, the cute little pom pom and the postcards all add a nice touch, more like a gift than something I ordered. I even have a frame that will work really well for the “I knit. What’s Your Superpower?” postcard. Your videos are great and I love to look at your blog. (confession: I haven’t taken your site off my computer since I found it, just love to see those blankets whenever I wake up my computer.)

  689. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 9:36 am

    I’m soooooooo happy you loved the knitting needles and packaging Pam !! I wrap each parcel like I’m bundling up a baby. A well dressed baby. But not a baby I would send through Canada Post. Wait. Where was I? haha!

    I really love making every single parcel a SPECIAL gift that arrives at your door. So happy you loved it.

    Cheers & happy knitting!!!

    Holy Thursday Batman! I went into a knitting coma for about four days. I knit a bunch of scarves for an auction we have at our school to raise funds for special items teachers may need throughout the year to improve their students’ educational experience! Hah, that was a mouthful. I wanted to tell you thank you for teaching me how to join my yarn ends so no more tails sticking out! there should never be cat tails in your blankets! I can’t believe I didn’t know how to do that before! What new projects are you up to? I learn how to cable! Super ease! Stay calm and knit on!

  691. Lynne Knowlton

    April 6th, 2018 at 9:38 am

    Hi Nean! Isn’t that theeeeeeeee best knitting tip / secret sauce ever?!! I included that secret sauce in all my knitting patterns because I was getting soooo tired of having all those willy nilly bits of wool sticking out everywhere, that never seemed to stay put (where I apparently had weaved them in ) ha! Solved!!

    PS. which pattern did you buy to learn the technique? I think I’m going to create a pillow pattern next for my next project or maybe macrame! I have been also making a million pom poms for blankets 🙂

    Knitters gonna knit!
    Happy knitting!

    If you truly, truly loved me, and absolutely wanted to make me cry (betcha you can’t) then you would pull up your big girl thong and knit me one of those chunky blankets…..only if you love me….sniff, sniff….xxx or at least convince your Mom to.????

    April 7th, 2018 at 4:35 pm

    Super thoughts – now I feel fairly normal! I haven’t been out for 10 days (MS) but still managed some knitting. Mind you – wool getting thicker – needle size increasing!!! Those circular needles look fab – on my list as I type!

    Many thanks for the humour – we need it to stay sane or not.

    Kind thoughts

    hi Lynne,

    Wow, I can’t believe it! I never win anything. I’m so grateful-this is exciting! I’m so looking forward to using this amazing kit to make a blanket that I can curl up under. It’s been awhile since I made anything, so I’m really looking forward to making a beautiful blanket, and learning something new. I might even let four crazy kids curl up under there with me! I’m sure they’ll want me to show them how to knit their own blankets as soon as they see me doing it…they are a creative bunch…this will be inspirational! It’s been a challenging winter and this is such a ray of sunshine. Huge thanks and hugs going your way! xoxo

    Congrats Anna !!! I’m really happy for you too! It was so hard, reading through so many beautiful comments, as everyone is a winner to me xo… and your story was so beautiful too. It truly has inspired me to do so many more giveaways on the blog this year.

    I wish I had a million blanket kits to give away. I really do. But I have some new ideas on other wonderful giveaways now too 🙂 xx

    Get ready to snuggle up and knit with the kiddos 🙂 underfoot. Excuse the pun. Your poor ankle! I hope you are healing well. I’ll send you an email this week so we can exchange deets and you can give me your mailing address / info etc.

    Big love!

    I love this throw and want to make it for my daughter who just moved to London UK. I would like to make it in pale/medium grey with white and red flecks (heathered sort of). Can I use 3 strands of chunky grey and add one strand of thin red wool and one strand of thin white wool? Would that achieve the look or would it just look like a dog’s breakfast?

  701. Lynne Knowlton

    September 29th, 2018 at 8:35 am

    Hi Deborah, that is a good question. There are a lot of colours going on there, but it may be worth a try. I would do a small test patch first to see what you think 🙂 Happy knitting, Lynne

    Hi, I love your blog. I subscribed and got a different pattern.. Where is the pattern that isnt knit 4 purl 4 with tassels and not veronica or clara, the one. I’d like is the other cream one that looks like all knit with a bit of a border with a different stitch pattern amd tassles. Maybe you udated it but that is the pattern I’d like.

    I’m soooo saving up for the crazy tassel blankie. Gorgeous!!!

    Hi!
    Does the kit include enough yarn to make the tassels?
    Thanks,
    Karen

  705. Lynne Knowlton

    December 24th, 2018 at 10:01 am

    Hi Karen,
    I usually use 2-3 extra balls of wool to make the tassels and/ or pompoms. We sell it the extra bundles here. PS. Sooooo sorry I took so long to reply to your note. I just saw it today. Hello holidays. LOL. Happy knitting, Lynne!

    Ohhhhh Lynne, I ordered the seed stitch blanket kit and received it today. Waited till hubby went to bed before I opened it, hoping he didn’t hear my screeches of delight. But no screeches of delight, instead a long sighhhhhhh of pure bliss when the beautiful grey yarn and I met – it was like nirvana for knitting. I sat there surrounded with all the yarn contemplating just falling asleep right there. And The Needles, the sizzors, the packaging and right before Christmas. My present to me and I deserve it (bad year, hubby hospitalized 5 times, etc). Since I live in Central California, it never gets chilly enough for the two strands type of blanket, so I’m opting for single strand and making two blankets. How many stitches would you recommend for a single strand blanket. I won’t be able to use The Needles this time, but someday they’ll be right there waiting for a nummy project. Thanks, Lynne, you always brighten my day and today it lit up like the 4th of July.

    All my best wishes to you and Michael for a beautiful Christmas and New Year. Thanks again!!
