A Holiday Present

My friend Sandy bought these for me as a Holiday gift but I never received a certificate from Signature Needle Arts so that I could order them. She called the company and, voila, here they are. They came all wrapped for Valentine’s Day and it was a perfect time to get them. I haven’t tried them yet but they are easily the most beautiful needles I own. They are size 5 and I see a lacey scarf in the near future. Thanks so much Sandy! I love them. Sandy knit this fabulous scarf and I just had to copy her. I made the "Try This" Slotted Scarf by Sharon Boucher-Turner.
With this new job I don’t have the time I used to for knitting but I am much happier here. We have started a Friday lunch hour knitting group called Knit and Nosh that meets in another building. More people come every week, crocheters too, and we all have a great time.
I have been trying to use up some older stash and I found this great way to use leftover sock yarn and make some baby gifts at the same time. Baby socks take hardly any yarn and are so fast to make. But I feel the time has come to consider a few sweater projects. The new Interweave Knits has some lovely and tempting sweaters. I’ll probably use wool instead of cotton but the gauge seems right and I am gearing up to go.
