Of craftiness and sadness

Some of you knew Grannyguy, from Crochetdepot.org.  He was my friend and the friend of a lot of you.   He wanted to learn how to knit, I did webcam training with him, but I was not a good teacher, we laughed he could not cast on as I taught.  Today I am a bit sad, Scott and I developed a fast friendship, we liked each other a LOT.  Nevertheless we were flirting friends.  His health has not been very good, I called him every day to cheer him up.  I was not able to talk to him since Tuesday, last nite he came to visit in a dream to tell me he died. I was disturbed by the dream and woke up, and he was sitting by the side of the bed, then he vanished.  I loved him very much I wanted him to join this site.  He will be missed, but will be present in our memories for all times.  Thanks for the opportunity to express my emotions.  Andrito ama a Tito.

Holiday Scarf

 Xmas Scarf

HI Everyone:

 

I was inspired by a friend of mine on the net,  http://colamanknits.blogspot.com  , his sweater gave me the inspiration for this scarf which I may bring to the Community center to continue my work with the inspiration of the other peple as well.  Anyway it is on of the projects I have for the holidays along with my hats.

Knitted Scarf

This is a scarf I made in 1997, I also knitted a sweater with the matching colors.  It was a very beautiful sweater. Very Heavy. It had all kinds of yarn, from Icelandic Wool, to some mohair to acrycic.  I may get motivated and make some sweaters, I want to buy those  detachable circular needles.  Does anyone has them, the ones you change the tips, How will you rate them.
