Penny and Judie, thank you for the information about the OTT light! I’ve pilfered my husband’s
birth control reading glasses and they seem to help some, but the light will definately be on my wish list.
While up in Packwood Jessica (Kinky Jessica) had a really nifty sock in progress needle holder. I’ve been scouring the internet in hopes of finding one, but to no avail. My
crack dealer yarn supplier, Scout, wasn’t familiar with them either. Jessica, if you read this will you please let me know where and how you acquired it. I’m forever knocking my socks off of the ends of the double points and sometimes, Heaven forbid, I even break the needles.
Today my sister drove down for a visit. She was a very good sport and accompanied me to a LYS where I picked up this…
It is *cotton destined to be a **summer tank top. Casting on this will be my reward for finishing the HP socks. Because the DH is out with co-workers I need to go concentrate all of my efforts on rounding up the youngin’s for bed. It’s like herding cats. Later!
*The yarn is Berroco Touche . It is a 50/50 blend of cotton and modal. Most 100% cottons hurt my hands, but this feels very soft and drapey.
** I haven’t decided yet if I want to make the Prairie Tunic or the Picot Camisole. Both come from the Spring 2006 edition of IK.
