well let's just be honest.
How many of you can't resist starting
Oh, I read your blogs,
most of you are like me,
some are not.
I can't believe the willpower,
of some of you who say,
that you finish one project before you start the next.
I have at least
twenty seven projects
at one time.
I know that I don't have the mittens done yet.
in all honesty.
I work on them until my hands cramp,
which is usually about 20 minutes at a time
then I switch to something else.
I must say,
they are almost done right now.
About three more
twenty minute sessions,
and they will be complete.
with that in mind...
I started the scarf above!
I could not resist.
I love the pattern,
"It looks like you would be wearing a doily."
I guess I have worn stranger things.
If I like it,
I am heading straight to
some really nice
I don't treat myself to good yarn very often.
There is a great little yarn shop near here.
I have no idea how,
in a place
twenty miles from a stoplight,
twenty miles from a Walmart
and thirty five miles from a mall.
We ended up with
two yarn shops
across the street from one another,
but we did.
One of them carries
A very nice selection, reasonably priced and local.
Not supporting big business,
supporting local small business.
I like that.
The other is a more high end yarn shop.
I touch and feel
and wish I had a skein of each.
if I did,
I would probably be too scared to put a needle or hook
into any of it.
I have limited my purchases there to sale items.
when I do,
it is so nice to work with that yarn.
And I guess,
if you are going to cramp your hands
into an arthritic state,
You probably should do it with good yarn!
