Knitting Bargain!


What a bargain!  This book was $24.95 and I purchased it for $9.98 incl. tax.  It's a luxury to have a 60% off coupon for JoAnn's.  Did you know that they are now once again accepting coupons on their books?   They have a lovely selection. 

A few months ago I purchased Envisioknit, a knitwear software program that is pretty powerful.  My goal, now that I have entered the wonderful world of retirement, is to start writing knitting patterns. 

I have been in a knitting frenzy.  I've become someone who is high on all things fiber related.  I wake up at 3:00 a.m. and reach for my knitting needles.  By 3:00 p.m. I am ready to crash on my bed filled with wonder.  I wonder why I allowed myself, like a spoiled child, to get up so early.  I am just plain tired.

So obsessed with knitting that my new weight-loss program on some days is to knit through breakfast and east feast on lunch.  

With all that said, I have a lot of blogging to catch up on.  I spent the last last three days blocking all those hand knits, so stay tuned.

Happy Knitting!

Welcome Blanket - Completed



Several pairs of knitting  hands gathered at my LYS to assemble squares for the "Welcome Blanket".  The blanket will be sent to the refugee program as mentioned to you in my previous post.  

It was a very warm and satisfying feeling to knit for this project.  The two skeins produced three 10" squares and each blanket required a total of 16 squares.  

Happy Knitting!
