it's been a bit since my last post....
a sort of
new years resolution was to post once a week....
ok...so much for resolutions!
i've put my knitting on hold for the sock KAL as the needles i was using were giving me fits~
they were square needles which are suppose to be easier on your hands
i'm not sure if they were easy on my hands as the join made
it difficult to move your yarn across causing lots stress on my wrist~
i do magic loop so this was a issue
i sent a email to the company and within a week i had a new set of needles!
yeah for companies that stand behind their products! thanks kollage!
on the knitting front...
i have not accomplished a finished project in a while
i'm not sure where my knitting mojo went????
i tried a hat for my little "iris....4 attempts!!!!!!
it was a simple pattern which i should have breezed through
instead after much frustration, i tossed it in the fireplace
childish i know, but i felt better
i know i will knit again....but not that hat!
on to the kindness of friends....
i have a blogging friend... Andi
she's such a sweetheart
while my blog lacks lots of followers
i enjoy a kindred relationship with the ones who do follow
andi is one of those friends
the hubs came from the mailbox and said " you have a package"
me? i didn't order anything~
it was from andi
andi knits beautifully
the color combinations & patterns she pairs them with...
hop on over to her blog and you'll see exactly what i mean
and while you're there, check out her sisters blog...
(she really does knit for her sister!)
i was the lucky recipient of a hand knit by andi
my favorite color....gray
i keep it on the back of my chair
and whenever i feel a chill,
i wrap up in what is warm, cozy and a wonderful reminder of friendship
thanks andi....you're the best!
