It's mid-week, and I'm posting! Please don't faint? I wanted to share a bit with you. When I was at Backstitches a couple of weekends ago, I might have mentioned that I found a felted bag pattern that I adored and decided I needed to knit. It was from this book, and I was able to pick that up from someone on Ravelry who was trying to weed out her book collection (I am not at that point yet, but am trying very hard to contain my collection to a smallish corner of the "library." heheh. Wonder how long I'll be successful?).
So, Pursenalities joined my shelves this week.

Then, Barbara-Kay (who truly used to have a great blog, but isn't updating it anymore -sigh) asked if I'd like a copy of this book since she was gifted it twice!
I was delighted, as it's been on my wishlist for some time...THANK YOU, B-K!

I know I told you about this yarn, but it's now on the needles and you can see that for the first time, a sock toe of my own construction is dwarfing poor Miss Muffin. I think I'll have to find a suitable model (someone larger and perhaps a tad more masculine?) to model MS's sock toes from now on...

It took three tries before I was satisfied with the toe...and it fits! So I think I'm on the right track now...lots of knitting before I begin to work the heel, as MS has a size 12 foot.

There. I brought you a bunch of knitting content! Whew! ;)

You are most welcome!

Sorry about the blog...every time I go there I am so sad about my beloved Minky. What is there to write without my muse beside me? Thank you for your kind words.

I'm glad the sock is fitting and is on track - looking good! And I love that Cookie A book myself, what a fun gift :)

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.
