Knitting and the Power of Postitive Thinking



So I was at my father's house for his recent birthday. I found the family photo album and took a shot of the signed photo of me and W. Clement Stone. He always wore a penciled in moustache. It was his tracemark. Here I am shaking his hand. The funny thing is, I have exactly the same haircut now!

Anyhow I have had to have to do some postive thinking on my new knitting venture. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. Anything the mind can concieve and believe, the mind can achieve! etc. And I have some new knitting i will try to show you tomorrow.

I'm making Julia Houston's IT's Our Secret Booties.
I LOVE making them.
Using lots of leftover sock yarn.
Almost all garter stitch.
Some seaming, but hey, I've had an epiphany with seaming......finally!

Even though I have to make two of each, they go fast fast fast and are
adorable. Just in time for cold feet......
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

with hairstyles as with just about everything in life we always come full circle we end like we start and it's always about the circle,the circle of trust,the circle of life.a infinite motion around and around and around

Classic hair cuts never go out of style, they just get better.
What a blast to have met W. Clement Stone!
Whatever the new project--you can do it!!
Bootie time again. It doesn't seem possible. Where did summer go. It's even getting cool here in Texas.

I want to know about the booties. Sock yarn booties are good.

Kathy - that photo is priceless. You look exactly the same (except in vivid color!). What a great treasure to share with us. Thanks.
