Knitting Weather

I was all set to make a blog post yesterday when the weather knocked out my internet! It poured down in buckets ...great weather to just sit and knit!

I owe you my dear reader(s) a couple of posts. I am swamped right now with work and a family health issue.

In the mean time check out this beautiful yarn bowl that I got at Sock Summit. It was made by a pretty lady named Jennie. She was quite pregnant when I saw her. Here is an article about her great looking stuff on Knitty. As you can imagine, she had to change her business life when a baby entered the picture. Read the blog post here to get the details.

When I can I will post about my New Years trip and the TNNA. I am knitting something new. My almost-Daughter-in-law wanted a little black cardigan for Christmas, I told her I'd knit one if she'd wait until January. Black is hard to photograph, I may only show it when it's done and she's wearing it.

Haitian disaster

Please read the Yarn Harlot's latest post.
If you are so inclined please donate to Doctors Without Borders or the charity of your choice. I have put a permanent button with further information and a charitable challenge for knitters. (look to the right)

Even a small donation matters.

Taking a sick day

I have lots of pictures of my trip to Northern California. But, I am taking a blog break due to having a COLD! I thought that I was going to avoid it by taking stuff when I first got symptoms and then we arrived home and wham...cough cough cough.

I have to get better for the TNNA yarn trade show that starts on Thursday!
