Ok. This Is More Like It!

There's really been a lot going on around here, behind the scenes, so to speak...I know, I really DO feel as if I've been away forever!

There have been purchases, including a copy of this (and I also joined the KAL) and also bought this as well as a couple of others that I can't remember...oh, yes, they're about mindful eating, not knitting related at all...I'll show you a photo of the Chevron Scarf I'm making currently for the No End In Sight Ripple Along soon, I promise. And then...

if you remember a couple of weeks ago, we were reeling from the shock of the Virginia Tech tragedy? A fellow VT grad, Kimberly sent me a gift as a way to help her process her pain...here, the Trekking XXL yarn she had in VT colors...a wondrous chocolate bar, and the cutest card...
Kimberly is just the sweetest thing, and a customer of mine, too...drop by and give her a hug, okay? Thank you, Kimberly!

Then, because I was off-line at night, I started searching through old (would you believe this is Jan/Feb 1995?) magazines (a Piecework to be precise) and discovered this pattern...an adaptation of a "centerpiece" by Christine Duchrow by Charlene Schurch. I also discovered The Lacemaker website (during my lunch hour) for supplies. I did indeed purchase the 000 steel needles (8-inch!) and the linen "yarn" - oh sure...that's thread, folks! I'm struggling with this, so don't expect to see anything anytime soon, okay? (I had so much fun going thru the old Pieceworks, that I renewed my subscription)

...And then Margene and Birdsong enabled me into Larger Than Life Bag and I ordered the issue...That one will take me a long time, as I can't crochet very quickly...

I also was web browsing one day and found this lovely stuff - I've been drooling over at Deb's. This is the Miracle colorway, and I decided I simply had to have enough for a shawl...I think Anne's Wing o' the Moth will be gorgeous in this, don't you?

And lest you think all I did was play while I was without a computer, I give you these...only a few of the several Posy Sock Sacks that I created....


OH. I also joined KTS3. This will be my second time. I so enjoyed it last time!

I promise...more photos soon. Including The Meezer. She was a big help to me while I lost my "mind." (ok...it was really my computer, but I swear it really IS my brain nowadays!)

Thank you for being patient with me...
(((hugs)))

You are so very welcome! Isn't that Trekking colorway awesome? I joined KTS3 and it also will be my second time. And you are such an enabler yourself -- I could not resist getting one of your sock bags. :P
Bunny hugs,

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
