I head off to my journey driving from Chicago to my new home in central Florida. I am staying with one of our knitting buddies in Atlanta, Lou (AKA olddancer on Ravely) and I am really looking forward to that. The wine is in the car and so is my knitting stuff. It's funny. With all the items that I handled, and I handled all of them, it brought back so many memories. It's amazing how we have "snapshot" moments in our lives that come flooding back to us as one touches an item, or smells a scent. I also found things that I lost many years ago and eventually bought new.
Do any of you fellas spin your own wool? And I don't mean bags of raw wool from a shop. I mean, sheared, dyed, handled yourself and spun up? I think we could do something interesting. Let me know. I have a plan....
Hi everyone -
Putting on my social justice hat for a moment to encourage everyone to wear purple tomorrow in support of at-risk youth, especially those who are LGBTQ, for what is now known as "Spirit Day".
I first mentioned this about 4 years ago here on MWK and decided it was time to bring it up again.
I currently have a large knitting bag that will hold a lot of stuff...right now it's holding all kinds of notions in different zippered pockets, a drop spindle and some roving, a couple books, and three different knitting projects. It's great for carrying a bit of everything, but I often would like something smaller that would hold just my current project as well as a few essential notions. This week I came across something called a Sock Sack which looks pretty great.
Yesterday I finished one sock. Started the second. Here is a pic of the sock on the foot. I think I am warming up and liking this method. Need to get the other one done quickly. Tempers are beginning to drop. I'll need to be wearing the pair soon.
Hi Fellow Knitters,
I hate technology!
Here is my latest sock in progress, shown on top of the original antique pair.
