Fun Pattern

As you can see here's the tote I said won a ribbon at NC State Fair. The pattern is from The Crazy Yarn Lady. She has a shop in Mt. Airy, NC., and has some great yarn. The floral design is mine with her guidance, as this was my first needle-felting project. I'll be doing another of these, the needle-felting part was really fun. Talk again later!

I Am Freaking Out

A few weeks ago I broke my right hand at work. Semi-fortunately I am left handed, but I really use my right hand for over half of what I do. Anyway, I can't knit. There is a cast on my hand almost to my elbow. I CAN'T KNIT!!! I thought I was handling it pretty well, until the new issue of Interweave Knits came out. I checked it out on the website and saw the new patterns. Oh my gosh, the Gutter Gansey, the Farrow Rib Cardigan and, and,... I can't knit.

So what am I doing? I'm furiously dying fiber and yarn, and collecting patterns. By the time this cast comes off I'll have projects backed up for 5 years. 4 more weeks and I'm good to go.

I'm also gathering for my Coffee Swap pal. I'll be sending her package soon. She lives in the UK so I don't know how long the journey there will take but I hope she gets it in one piece, and I so hope she loves it. OK, I feel a little better now. Off to help with homework.
