|Circle start on #3's|
My good friend Anne Munoz's daughter is trying to raise funds for a volunteer nursing trip to the Soloman Islands in May. I have personally known this young woman since she was 7 years old and I can honestly say she is a dedicated nurse trying to make a difference in the world. Anne has donated one of her art quilts to be given away to one of those donating funds for this humanitarian project. Please consider making a donation. Thanks.
I have the main section on my Sagebrush Shrug knit. It needs to be blocked before knitting the ribbing. Fun, fast to memorize pattern!
I cast on my Shipwreck shawl this am. I have been wanting to knit this since the pattern first showed up on Knitty 4 years ago. I had such good luck with the circle cast on, the first try worked! I used one size smaller dpns since I only have metal #4's. The wooden needles help hold the stitches. When I have tried to cast on a circle in another project using metal needles I had the stitches falling off all over the place. My #4 dpns are vintage ones from my mother's collection. I just love the old packaging!
I am still reading "The Casual Vacancy". It is written for the adult audience, adult language and situations. So far I am liking the storyline.
