Just Gimme the Yarn & Nobody Gets Hurt

Carol, one of my customers today, just had to dig into her new yarn immediately! She was so distracted by winding it up, I felt ignored. "Oh well, have fun, bye!", I said as I headed out to my next stop. The Giant Skeins sure are wonderful stuff, and selling like hotcakes!

Knitting Bug Bites

Thank you, mother nature! Cool weather is here, and I got the kniting bug. Making a set with this neck warmer, plus a pair of fingerless gloves. A gift for my stepmom, Barbara.

Message To My Fans

After being accused of neglecting my followers (har har), I am updating my blog. I have been doing lots and lots of knitting (and tatting), and even produced a pumpkin the other day! I just am a little stalled on some projects ( some of you may remember a couple of things that have never showed up finished..I am so ashamed).

Here you will see a felted slipper in Galway that I think is almost ready for frogging, since I don't like the wide stripes. Anyway, I was planning to do a solid slipper with a needle-felted monogram...so how I ended up making stripes is a mystery.

Below is a raspberry colored (YAY!) SWTC Bamboo top, called the Lotus Blossom Tank from Interweave Knits. I made it before, and I'm makin it again, I love it so much! I am also doing a SWTC Lacey Shell ( my own pattern) in Turquoise Terra, which I absolutely love for the sheen, cottony-ness (but not heavy-ness) and the comfort for wearing in the tropics is great. There are some tatted baby-bootie-bottoms-below!
