A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
Twenty-One Dishcloths ready to be shipped out of here...enjoy!
Four posts today (go ahead and scroll down and count!)...way too many, but it is craft day and I do need to post my crafting because I actually have some things to post!
Craft day...first, result(s) from the Wonderfully Constructed Hand Knitted Dishcloth GKT Blog Giveaway drawing: you are all winners.
Twenty-one people entered the drawing for one of these lovelies, and I couldn't bear to draw just one name for those of you being such good sports about this, when I know you all make wondrous things yourselves. Winners are: Meg, Susan, Hollie, Shelley, Katie B., Karen, Anne, Helen, Maggie, Kristina, Jan, Jane, Linda, Amanda, Carol, Theresa, Myra, Darcy, MK, Jill, and Melissa. Your dishcloth is on its way to you...enjoy...and thanks for the fun!
In making the dishcloths, I learned ten new stitches, got to work with different kinds of yarns (all washable, of course), and loved having all the different colors flowing through my fingers. This week we are going to finish our Market Day Bag, and I am very excited about that project...I am not sure what is next.
Second, the best part about all of this is that I found several charities that request knitted items for babies, as well as scarves, hats, mittens, sweaters, etc. for young children, and I am really LOVING that I could knit things to donate...that appeals to me immensely, so that is definitely where all this is taking me in this knitting venture.
And, third, and last, I have to say this knitting thing is just great. For my birthday from Matt and Alex I got the Denise travel knitting needle kit and a Denise organizer, so I can take this knitting jones on the road at any moment...whenever I am sitting and waiting for these guys, I can knit...you can do it most anywhere. I just love that.
And, of course, the first thing everyone says is, "I didn't know you could knit. I have never once pictured you knitting." Followed closely by, "Okay, what gives...where is your book?" More than one reference has been made to the possibility of the "real me" having been replaced by a "pod person"....I wonder...hmmmm...maybe.
