Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Abigayle Franklin!!!

Abigayle Franklin (TheKnittingFarmgirl, #6692) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Knitting Merit Badge!

“I’ve been a knitter for a number of years. In order to earn my merit badge, I taught a local lady to knit at our local coffee shop. In order to prepare for the lesson, I knit a sample dishcloth. Debbie, my student, then knit one of her own. I taught her how to cast on, garter stitch, and bind off.


Additionally, I discovered that our barista is pregnant with a little boy. So I added a crocheted border to it and 2 straps to make a bib. This experience was excellent! I created a knitter friend (my first in this new city) and a baby got a bib out of the deal!”

    Abigayle, congratulations on being featured and for spreading the skill of knitting! I love to knit myself and excited to hear about other Farmgirls who love it too. Your idea for a cotton baby bib is very clever and perfect for a baby gift. I may have to try my own hand at doing one the next time I have a need for a baby present. There are so many pretty colors of cotton yarn to use!
