Karen will sell her knitted Olympic hat from Ravelry
Go ahead, make Karen an offer. I'll make sure she gets them. If you know someone who would love a perfectly knitted Olympic hat made out of Galway, Karen wants to know. It is from the Ravelry pattern. Karen from Musings, I think you too are knitting this masterpiece. Karen also knitting an Olympic rings hat if anyone would like to make an offer on that one. Or the pair!
Knit friends came for early morning bagels and strawberries this morning. I have more knit pictures to show you.
Cricket had a practical lesson in not jumping on guests. I chatted more than knitted. Karen also rescued me again. Seems I knit another stitich marker into the thumb part of my current fingerless. (fingerless not thumbless....) Why do I do this? I need to pay more attention to my knitting at those markers. Karen tinked it all the way back, corrected it for me and saved the stitch marker. . ( I suggested she just cut it off, but she couldn't bear to snip the wire. )
I am all excited about 50 degrees here today and perhaps a thunderstorm. The wind is out of the SOUTH. I am excited but not fooled. We'll need our fingerless gloves around here until June. I expect snowfall on St. Patricks Day. Then and only then will I take down my crocheted snowflakes from Grace. After St. Pats day. This is the worst of the year for me weatherwise. I am doing so well this year........that little trip to Florida seems to have really helped.
Does someone save your knitting when you goof? Would you like to honor them here?
I talk more in the comments!
