|Spring Cleaning... and Mom Spot....n KIRI update...|
|Busy. Busy. Busy.|
As you can see from the pics yesterday... working on the couch doesn't always WORK.
SO---I decided to do a little "creative space management".....
We have a dining- room.... and like most people, who do---- we use it for holidays..........or when we have company....(which isn't as often as I like!)
Seems like a "waste of space" to me... I moved in. It will be MULTI-purpose. I can change it back to a Dining room in about 15 minutes.... but- now my knitter-stash... my computer, my biblestudy stuff-----my spinning wheel, and fiber--- will all be set up in here.
It'll work for me!
I've also posted updated pics of KIRI (free pattern) here:
I'm on the 10th repreat of 12 before the edging. As per my obsessive style---- I'll be making this again!
There is also a pic of my "Method" of lace knitting pattern tracking---- Kacha-kacha counter- to count rows---
CUTE Very CUTE sheepy counter to track repeats-----(http://stores.ebay.com/Seahorse-Designs)
I also found the cutest little hand made bag in the picture for my stitch markers and counters-;) Great to have for lace knitting!
For my next magical Kiri:
I have 4 skeins of this:
waiting for it! (Kidsilk night- starry night)
I finished the knitpicks "Garden- stargazer-lily" socks... fast- simple- plain sockies--- Nice to knit between rows of lace.....and in the car at stop lights--- and in parking lots----and whie waiting in line.... and in the drive thru @ Mickey D's ( i hate that plce- but Noah loves their happy meals!- They DO however have PLAIN Iced-Tea----(hate that syrupy stuff- so thats what I get;) .....redirection from digression--- Sorry!
Sock yarn available @:
I also cast on some SUPER quick sleep socks---- In Tessoro from Joanne's--- soft for 100% wool-- and I kept hearing complaints that it doesn't felt--- so--- nice warm lavander washable socks for me to sleep in!
(My feet are ALWAYS cold....) "Tessoro Toasty Toes" pattern hybrid-
Now for a question.....
Unspun fiber storage.... any fiber safe ideas???????
