Stitches West & Lucy The Wonder Dog
Picture Time!! I love the picture of Lucy - it makes her look so viscious.. she's YAWNING! I tried to take her picture and she'd look down, then up, then I guess she was bored out of her mind.. i clicked the picture just as she did one of those squeeky yawns....She goes in for a dental cleaning and x-rays to see if her hip is OK and if the swelling in her front foot is just inflamation from walking around.... the other two pics are of two sets of needles I got at Stitches West.. the tiny ones are a size 3, the larger is a size 25!! What, pray tell, would I make with a size 25 needle you ask?? Well, how about area rugs for the bathrooms and kitchen?? One pattern that came with the needles calls for 30 (THIRTY) strands held together - all lacey weight yarns.... but what a fun way to use up the partially used up balls of yarn in your stash... I don't recall the name of the company for the tiny needles, but I got to pick the lenght (7") the tip (stilletto) and the little end-cap thing. The large needles are from the booth "Extremen Knitting" - but that was not the company's name... they were also selling kits of purses - more pricey that I was willing to pay.... in the range of like $70 or so.. the liners that came with the kids were nice enough to be a purse all by themselves.. hence the hefty price. I sent off my HSKS4 package to my buddy - I spoiled "Cecilia Kettleburn" aka Angela - you can visit her at http://celticcrocheter.wordpress.com or her potter character blog at http://kettleburned.wordpress.com - the swap has been really fun - lots of interaction - very different than SecretPal swap, in that in the Potter swap - houses compete against each other for house points, etc. We also have quidditch matches - you have to look at other particiapnts blogs to find the snitch - I have yet to find it.. i guess it is hidden very well!!
On a totally diffrent subject - The Boy Child is now a proud member of the US Army! He has requested a pair of socks, a helmet liner and a v-neck pullover sweater, which I got the yarn for the other day. So, off I go to pick up my pointy sticks... more pics later of Stitches West purchases later. TTFN
