~MeMe and more Me? lol~
Since I haven't accomplished too much knitting since my stomach decided to revolt, I thought I'd share my cross stitch beaded turkey! I LOVE this little guy - I made him a few years ago and he makes me smile! On the knitting front, I was just about done with my doll legs, when I realized that I made them the same width as the arms - being out of my mind - I FROGGED them - so the doll isn't finished yet :(
I do feel better than I did yesterday, although I ended up at the chiropractor today. I did something awful to my back - probably yesterday hanging out of my car door on my way home from the dentist. Wednesday is my "work from home" day and, needless to say, it wasn't very productive, but I will hopefully be heading off to work tomorrow -- I feel terribly guilty when I'm home sick.
Here is the pattern I was looking for yesterday that, thankfully, emerged from the black hole - now I can get going on these lovely things and maybe convince myself that I'm worthy of keeping something for myself! lol I almost always give away what I make, but my hands have been so cold lately that I might just manage to hang on to these.
I was gifted with this skein of Patons Divine, I'm thinking I might give it a try on the gloves. Do any of you have any thoughts on this yarn? It is very soft, but has Mohair in it, I'm assuming I should attempt not to make mistakes as frogging may be a bit difficult. I also always rewind my yarn with the ball winder - does anyone know if doing that will cause problems with this yarn?
Yesterday, Karen tagged me with my first meme! Thanks Karen! (l0l) all that thinking took my mind off of my stomach woes! I apologize if the answers aren't as detailed as they should be, but here we go........What is your all time favorite yarn to knit with?
Knitting with cashmere is my favorite – I love the feel and the way it just glides over the needles. I also like picking out sock yarns - Swizzle and Trekking have been favorites. I have just ordered some Knit Picks to try out.
Your favorite needles?
The worst thing you've ever knit?
Your most favorite knit pattern? (maybe you don't like wearing it . . .but it was the most fun to knit)
Most valuable knitting technique?
Best knit book or magazine? The book that helped me the most when I first started venturing past plain dishcloths was Knitting in Plain English by Maggie Righetti. On the pattern front, the knitter’s handy book of Patterns by Ann Budd is great, it is very helpful in adjusting patterns for different sizes.
