  1. I recieved a wonderful package from My FGM and new friend. In the package was a wonderfluly chatty letter a card and hanging towels. But I have to say What touched me the most was the fact that you took the time to put together presents for my twins. They love the stencels and the beads and wanted me to tell my new friend that they love all of the stuff you sent them. Thank you so much for all that you sent! I am sorry that it took so llong to get this posted but with it being a birthday weekend and getting them back to school I felt like I was always behind.

  3. I was using a harmony wood needle. My sweter is now on cubics.
  4. I started a sweater for my hubby. I love the pattern and love the yarn. Today I was sitting at the LYS knitting away and my needle snapped and over 100 stitches fell off. I got all of them picked up but I should of had the sleve holes done today and now I am so mad at the sweater that I put it in time out. The owner of my LYS is such a sweet heart that she went and got me a new pair of needles and gave them to me. I didn't even buy the needles from her, I would of had to buy a new set but she told me not to worry about it. Now I have to try to get a hold of the company that I bought the needles from and see what they will do about the busted needles.
  5. I love DPN's!! One of my twins wanted to learn how to make socks (she is 8) . I gave her the option of circs or dpn's and she picked dpn's as that is what I use. She is doing wonderfully with them!
  6. I am so happy I finally got my new needles in the mail today. I ordered a set of signature DPN's I love them. They are very sharp and make it so easy to knit 2 together. Here are the socks I finished a couple nights ago ( If I got the picture off my phone right).... Wooo Hooo it worked!!!!!
  7. I finished another pair of socks and am working on the third pair now. This time I am keeping track of all the rows I do so I can be sure that I have the exact same size when they come off the needles. I will take a picture of the socks I finished as soon as I find the memory card for the camera.... (gotta love kids)
  8. Yesterday I was supriesed by two FGM. One sent me a recipe that looks wonderful and the other wrote me a note and told me about a few authors that she likes. I am so happy with both. I have to go to the grocery store and get a few things for the recipe and then I will try it. I went to Barns and noble to look at the authors that were recomended to me and purchased a new book for myself ( for the nook). Thank you ladies so much!!!
  9. Kollage makes metal ones I ordered mine online. The Cubics needles I have came from my LYS. I think that you can order both of them online if you can not find them where you live.
  10. I love making new friends and cannot wait to send out gifts... 1. Sock yarn, I have recently become obsessed with knitting socks 2. A post card from your area with a note telling me about you. 3. Your favorite recipe I love to cook. 4. Make something for charity and send me a PM to tell me about it. 5. A birthday card for me or the twins ( mine is September 29, the twins will be 9 August 26 Haley and Riley) 6. A row counter. Riley has started knitting and took off with mine 7. A retractable tape measure mine always walk away 8. If you have read a good book send me a PM and tell me about it I am always looking for a good read. That is all I can think about for now. I hope that everyone has a great time!

    Chains

    When I have to crochet into the chain stitch I work it like I do the begining row. I hope this makes sense...
  12. I finished another sock last night. I am not a big fan of the color. It has more brown in it than I would like, so I am going to relly have to push myself to finish (or even start) the second one.
  13. Very pretty blanket. I just could not remember how to spell the name of the needles.
  14. Cindy, There is a lady at my LYS that does socks on a very shory cabled needle and loves it! The needles are made by Choo Gooo (sp). It might be worth a try for you.
  15. Knitters pride now have square wood needles. I love them. They are called cubics!
