TGV THIRD SHAWL FINISH MONDAY

 Beatles needed to be on the blog today, apparently..... He's your good luck black kitty.  *The witch is not mine.....she belongs to a house in Kenilworth Illinios* 
I just now cast off the shawl.  I think I have to knit some fingerless gloves next.   My arms/wrists are sore and I know better.  The weight of the shawls and yarn is beginning to show.   

Just can't tell you enough how much I love this Susan Ashcroft pattern TGV, Tricot grande vitesse.   I am so thrilled I knit the first in blue acrylic for myself.  It drapes around me when I'm chilly in the house, and well...... knitting! 

Recently read that it is really important to thank those who read and comment on your blog...Ree Drummond's post.  
So I cannot thank you enough.  I LOVE this little daily part of my life.  I LOVE hearing from you.  I LOVE reading your blogs too. 

I Think it is an exchange, in a big big anonymous world.  A great exchange.  I am very diligent about leaving comments on others' blogs, too.   I know how happy comments make me.  

For the lurkers out there, I appreciate you too.  I know some people just feel shy about using their words in print.  They are afraid they'll sound silly.
(You can see that's not something that runs through this mind! ) 

So I will be hosting a thankyou contest very soon.  

Thank you thank you thank you.  Happy Monday, and oh I got downstaffed last night......so I am overjoyed to have slept normally again last night. I Love my bed.  I dont' thank it enough....
thank you Bed.

Beatles made an appropriate showing in your blog today.

I have to agree that the shawl pattern is very nice, and it looks as though it would stay on one's shoulders quite well. It's beautiful; I like the contrast of the border. Well done!

Good morning to you and Beatles!

I am thankful to those who read my blog (and leave comments). They make my day brighter.

Thank you for your friendship and your posts! I'd like to sleep 8 hours straight, uninterrupted.

You are funny! I am very thankful to all who comment on my blog and try to show that by responding to the comments - either with a reply email or by 'returning the favor'.

I know you perfer the square straight needles? Have you tried the square circulars? I find circular needles let the weight of the knitting sit in my lap, rather than be supported by my arms. Just a thought - pain is never any good!

I love it that you comment on my blog and often give me a chuckle when you do. Thank you.

I always read your blog even on the days I don't comment and value our blogging friendship.

But some days proving that I'm not a robot is a challenge. Isn't it sad that we have to do that?

KathyTNY said...

I am right there with you Marguerite!!! Proving I am not a robot can be challenging! I reject more than I accept - the teen tiny numbers are the worst!

Anyhow, Miss KathyB - I LOVE your blog and I am thankful you read AND comment on mine faithfully. You were one of the biggest reasons that I am trying to pull myself together and blog faithfully.

Comments are wonderful things! :)

Sorry to hear about the downsizing, but sleeping normally sounds wonderful. Give and take, I guess...

kathy b said...

(back to lurking) =)

Thank you Kathy!! I love you and I love your blog! (I also am a faithful reader of Ree's blog). It is special to me to share in the lives of so many wonderful women who knit and cook and love being wives and moms.

I am enjoying the TGV shawl and thank you for the link to it! I had some bug this weekend and didn't get to knit as much as I would have liked. I'll be back to it this week!

Glad you had a good sleep, Kathy, and that you successfully finished another shawl! Bravo(:
The silver cup in the photo you asked about on my blog is a tea strainer, but I have been using it lately to put a used teabag in when my cup of tea look strong enough to drink. Thanks for visiting me (: xx from Gracie

I'm just catching up on blogs after returning from a couple days camping/fishing/kayaking.... wonderful! I love your fall pictures, and the shawl turned out great! I'm being drawn to things other than socks these days, which surprises me. I'm thinking a shawl is in my knitting future. But yet I think I will cast on socks pair #10 tonight... and try to finish up on the Reader's Wrap this week. Thanks to YOU for keeping your blog fresh and interesting... I'm afraid mine is suffering right now, but perhaps I gain time and inspiration again soon.
