It has been a while! Life has calmed down a bit and so I am able to take a moment to catch up here. I have been busy knitting, too!
I finally purchased the Mason Dixon Knitting Book. If ever there was a great place to start the dual task of kitting and reading about knitting - it is here. What a fantastic book, combining instruction with life's bits of humor. The graphics in the book are wonderful! This is a book that you can pick up and read for small spaces of time without the need to remember where you left off. I highly recommend it! This is one book that I would love to carry in shop!
One of the first projects that I was able to conquer was the Mason Dixon six sided cloth. This is the cloth that I messed up on in the past. I finished it!
Here was my last attempt:
Here is the correct version:
Look Mom! No twists! I knit this using Peaches & Cream Pink Lemonade. What a yummy color combination. I placed an order on-line at http://www.elmore-pisgah.com/.
I was not disappointed. I can't wait to order again. I am finding more and more knitting sites on the web. A person could get lost for days at a time just on the knitting sites alone. Who cares if the dust mites are gathering around and the fur balls are blowing!
Here are some of the knitting blogs I have been visiting lately... and let me tell you. These are some very ambitious knitters. Maybe, when I grow up, I can be just like them! :)
Anyway... here they are:
That's all for now. I promise I will be back later. Hopefully yet today! Be blessed.
Lord, guide my steps today ...
