Answering the Call - To Craft!

Lousy title, huh?

I'm getting pretty bad at picking them - or perhaps my "muse" is on vacation?

Anyway, I promised you a few photos of needle cases - in this case it's a couple of Glady Interchangeables Cases...These are spoken for, but email me if you're interested in one of your very own, okay?

These two photos are of the Aqua Yin/Yang Kitties print that you've seen here before...there's only a little of this fabric left, sadly it's out of print now (I so hate when that happens to a good print!)


Above and below is a cool retro/nouveau print in brown, pink, and ivory...

I only put my Harmony set in this last one to show off the ability to house so many of your tips and cables - the larger pockets on the bottom back row (and the top row) have velcro tabs to hold your cables securely when you fold the case up for tucking into your knitting bag.

And I couldn't stand it, I had to have that electric pink OTN. My receptionist saw this sock today and dubbed it "The Bubblegum Sock" and so be it. THAT name will stick ... sorry...we had to clean gum off the bottom of DGS#1's shoe last night, so that's where that very bad pun came from...

I'm using my size 2 Susan Bates Quicksilvers for these...just because. These will be bedsocks - and Deb, you are so right, this yarn is, well...just NOT what I prefer to knit with...it's got no "spoing!" But they'll be fine for bedsocks. That's why I put the mock cable down to the toe - I don't like patterning on the feet of my socks inside shoes so I don't usually do this, but decided to throw caution to the wind for these!!

Yeah, that's my Mommie...a real daredevil...The Meezer

I like the way that yarn is knitting up -- even if it IS pink. ;-)

i so want one of those needle cases! I really dislike the plastic one that came with my Harmony set. it will be good for other things, just not the needles.

Bubblegum socks. Stick with it. Ha-ha! Way to make lemonade from less than lively yarn, Sallee. At least they look pretty :o)

Oh, wahoo!! I recognize one of those fabrics:) Though the kitties are pretty novel too... I have been looking more closely at fabrics this month, doing some re-purpose sewing for this weekend's crafts fair and loving the retro looks.

That Chinese fabric is very striking. If you have any left, maybe the daughter of one of your cousins might like something made of it. Any suggestions? --One of your cousins

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.
