Scary Stuff and Smart Suggestions


I have packed the yarn.  
These are the best of my stash. 
They are in the box with the swift and the sock blockers. 
Deep breath. 
All will be well. 

This means I can ONLY work on my Christmas Stockings for a few weeks.  It is the only yarn and needles I left out. 


I totally loved that so many of you felt comfy enough with a knit skill to teach for 5 minutes. 
So.....
No, I'm not asking you to do that.

However here is the list of those who thought they could help amongst us.  If you want to know more about their specialty maybe you can ask them directly?

Vera: Setting up a swift and ball winder

Val: Wandering Cat : Lace 

Stefanie-Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons:
Knitting is my Yoga

Delighted Hands: Invisible weaving in of ends. 

Deb of Araignee's Tangled Web: Magic loop method for beginners

My Allison: chart reading. And I can connect you if you want to reach her. 

me, Kathy B, here :
Felting.  For all. 

So looks like if we all met at my house we could set up a swift and ball winder, cast on lace socks with a chart, knit with yogalike zen together , weave in the ends invisibly and NOT felt the socks .

LOL NOT felting the socks is a GOOD thing! :-)

Well, my discussion was going to be on my frustrations of setting up my swift and ball winder - ha-ha. But, I do like the idea of us all getting together at your place Kathy...sometime after the move? A nice thought...it sure would be fun to all meet up sometime.

I have always thought it would be fun to have a yarny retreat with like-minded peeps in a gorgeous place with waiters to bring us snacks and fruity drinks. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I like Teresa's idea!

Araignee said...

Sounds like a plan!

Judy S. said...

And wouldn't that be FUN!!!

Delighted Hands said...

I could use a house full of knitters to cheer me up-sounds wonderful.
We can meet at your new house and throw you a house warming party!!!!

Stefanie Ng said...

That would be cool to meet up with you. Wish we could transport via "energize" or floo powder. Did you by chance get my card? ^__^

Gosh, I totally missed this post. It didn't show up on my feed at all until about 10 minutes ago. And today's hasn't shown up yet! Anyway. I want to come! Please? It would be such a fun time to get together with all of you. Some of my favorite people out there blog land. :-)
Blessings, Betsy
