A mother's day gift
Makes me smile!
I don't want to jinx it, but I am on the second sock for Al's new pair. I'm using Dazzle and it is so pretty. Expensive, yes, but I know she'll use them and enjoy them. It is a heavier weight and so I cast on 40 sts. What a joy to see my stitches. I'm a much better knitter at 4-5 stitches per inch that 7-8.
Looks like most of the country is in rain and snow. I say we all need some sunshine. I wish I was not so weather driven. It is good to get out and walk no matter.
Prarie Arts and Fibers up in the country in northern illinois, is closing. I loved the store but have to admit, it was too far for me to go back to from my home. Everything is 25% off starting next monday if that is your neck of the woods.
I am hoping my posts will get more interesting again. I feel like I need to write through it. I love a funny post, but I am starved for good ideas lately!
I talk more in the comments!
