I knit and crochet, but prefer to knit. I'm currently working on a baby blanket for my new niece and an afghan for my mom.
Here are some pics of a few other things I've made:

I knit when I actually think about it. I recently made a fly bonnet for my pony(or am making I guess, since it is still missing ears) and was in the middle of a dish rag, before the cat decided he didn't want me to finish. Haven't even tried to untangle the mass of yarn yet, I'm a little afraid to.

I crochet. The last thing I did was a fly bonnet for my boy and he promptly destroyed, the little toe rag!

Calicokatt- your cable work and stitch patterns are lovely!

I have a pattern for a fly bonnet too, but I haven't started it yet. Still working on the unfinished saddle pad.

Hi Ladies,

Waaaaaay! Over 20 but youthful in my outlook if that counts. I knit and crochet and spin. I have an Ashford spinning wheel from NZ and it's a dandy. I love to dye yarn and make strange new things. And of course my UFOs are many.

I too am working on making a saddle pad. I'd like to knit a shaped English pad and then felt it down to size but I haven't figured out how much bigger to make it and it would relly be a bummer if you felted it and it weas too small. I've considered making a rectangle pad and then felting it and then cutting it down to the shape and size I want but it seems so wasteful as far as yarn goes. So it is a project that remains in my mind and not on my needles.

I made some cute bunnies for my grand daughters this Easter but I think knitting a pony would be terrific. Does anyone here belong to Ravelry?

Have a lovely evening y'all

I'm currently finishing up a multicolored scarf, not sure what I'll do next... probably a hat or a pair of mittens.

Autumnheart - what's your Etsy store? Mine is Songsparrow Design, but I don't have anything listed at the moment.
Sorry for the late reply, but here is my Etsy shop: abbyxelizabeth on Etsy

Saddle Pad?

Hey Lockwood, I would love to hear about your saddle pad. I'd like to make a felted one but I'm still trying to figure out how to make allowances for the shrinkage. It's for a shaped English pad so not as straightforward as a square pad. Though maybe I ought to do one of those first. Hmm.

Best regards,

Hm. Didn't read all the posts so sorry if I should have.

Does anyone have a crochet pattern for a horse fly bonnet?

Crocheted Fly Net Pattern

Hi y'all,

I have a crocheted fly net pattern I downloaded from Ravelry. (If any of you love to knit or crochet you might want to join Ravelry.) Email me at and I'll be happy to share it with you.

Best regards,

Well, summer hit, then the drought and I promply forgot all about the saddle pad. I'm making a square dressage type of pad for my aussie saddle and I have no pattern to speak of, but from my experiments with my alpaca fiber the general rule is to make things 1/3 larger.

I don't have the project in front of me, but when I started I measured out my "target" saddle pad, like this one-
Rider's International Contoured All Purpose Saddle Pad | Dover Saddlery
And based on those numbers increased by 1/3.
Since the original pad has room to spare with my saddle I figure it will be a bit large once done and felted, which is ok for us as I could felt on a pocket for trail rides.

Probably won't pick it back up until the weather turns too cold to work outside beyond the normal daily farm stuff.

What color or color pattern are you doing yours in?
