KNITTING GAL

May 02, 2007

Just too busy to Blog........



I have been so caught up with drama at work that I have hardly been knitting! (gasp!!) What to do? Who would think that there could be so much to do at a library. I have always thought to write an expose on the goings on. You wouldn't believe it. So I am stealing some time to talk about the little socks I finished over the weekend and will include pictures on my next update. They are sooo sweet and fun to do. This is the link to the pattern:

And my hat off to the creator of the pattern. The socks are very clever and fun to knit. I changed needle size to get a smaller sock and now I have upped the needle size and added a few rows to make them longer. Great fun.


I also finished the baby hat (see below). It looks OK but not like the pattern picture. I am disappointed. I will try again and if that doesn't work I will stick to doing my hats from the bottom up. I promise to include pictures hopefully tomorrow. I need to figure out how to upload them from the camera. Hubby has been doing it for me. He very zealously guards the camera and his computer. So I have to let him send me the pics in a file. Talk about possessive! I know you are all waiting with bated breath to see my pics (ha!)

A big thank you to my daughter Katie for actually visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I am still waiting for daughter number one....where are you?.....




I have been reading the book Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts and it has been a real eye opener. She goes into detail on the wives, mothers and sisters of the men that fought the American Revolution. The book uses primary sources and is filled with wonderful tales about how the founding mothers held the country together while the boys were off fighting. This is one interesting book. I read it for book group and everyone agreed how it relates to so much of what goes on today. History does repeat itself.

Thanks for dropping by the Selfish Sunday Knitters blog and thanks for the tip on the Founding Mothers book. It sounds like one I'd like to read. The Hubster is very much into politics and I have always been curious about the poor wives of the politicians in history. I'll definatly check it out! AND....YARN FROM IRELAND???!!!! Where are you and can I raid your stash??!!! lol. Sigh...very jealous of the stash from Ireland, I am ,I am. By the way, I love the pictures on your blog. I'll be adding you to my Feedreader so I get notified when you update. ;) Many happy returns!
