Simply stated as she walked in the door at Ewe Knit Kits Saturday: My husband and kids are out having fun. I was cleaning the house and I decided I wanted to knit my shawl. I left the vaccum cleaner in the middle of the living room. I'm here to buy needles and get help with the pattern. I understood......

Two students signed up for the Fiber Trends Pary Purse class. They chose their yarns, casted on and knitted away. We talked about using novelty in the last few rows. One chose Eros the other will use a different color wool.

I picked out 3 colors of Cascade 220 for my Martha/Cybil Striped Felted hat. If you saw the Martha Stewart made for tv movie it's the hat Cybil Shephard (who played Martha) wore as they were entering Turkey Hill for the first time. I'm going to play around with a Fiber Trends pattern to see what I can come up with. In my opinion, the hat was the only good thing about the movie.

Sunday the 13th I ordered from Knit Picks the book "Simply Knits"....received it on Thursday, the 17th. Now that's great service! So I finished the 3 hats that were in progress for the Guilds Christmas in August Knit a Hat for Charity project and casted on for this: Obi I'm using a yarn I have had in my stash since last August. (it was to be my France shawl but was never finished) It's a wool/silk blend in solid black. I hope the yarn will drap over my shoulders and won't be too bulky.

It was movie marathon yesterday afternoon: What Women Want, Kate and Leopold and A Knights Tale....Mel, Hugh and Heath...
