Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Cyrie Wilson!!!

Cyrie Wilson (#6941) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Knitting Merit Badge!

“I know how to do a basic knit with knitting needles, but I have problems with my hands and can’t use them anymore. Instead, I use a fine-gauged loom.

I finished a pair of socks (the pink ones). I used a basic knit and pearl stitch. They took about 3 days. I’m allergic to wool, so I found a good stretchy synthetic fiber.

It’s a lot easier for me to use a loom than the needles. It took me a long time to knit a sock that fits my foot. It’s not easy to be a size 11!”

    Cyrie, I am fascinated with your knitting on a loom! Your socks turned out beautiful. Congratulations on such fine work. I love to knit socks, but I completely understand how difficult it is to knit with those tiny needles and the stress it puts on the joints of hands. Enjoy wearing your new pretty socks!!
