This is a park near my home.
The little lake is frozen over.
They put Christmas trees on the ice and as they sink they become fish habitat.
Today's knit talk is a fireside chat...
I'm sitting near the fireplace with a blazing fire going.
I am wearing the shawl that my work pal crocheted for me when I retired.
I'm still chilly.
Where's a hot flash when you need one?
I think we can call it a Fireside chat as I am the president of this little irisheyes blog.
I was up at my LYS today and told Adrienne about my arm fatigue while knitting Kina.
She asked if I was using slippery needles.
I wasn't. I was using my old trusty woodens.
I came home and knit all the Kina stitches onto my metal needles.
Here's hoping the simple switch will be easier on my arms.
Adrienne also suggested the obvious which I'd ignored:
Use pillows under my arms and sit up straight.
Ahem....okay I'm working on that...
I need a button for my Kina. I'm a few weeks away from a finish, but I enjoyed looking at the buttons at the studio.
I also bought some wooden 9 inch straights in size 3s for my ....latest....trap.
Yes, I've started another Trap.
It took me ten full days into the New Year to start another. I feel like an addict.
I'm kind of giddy about it...
It's good to be giddy!
