I am Late Because the STEELERS won!!!
For those of you who do not care about football, cover your ears because I am screaming "Steelers Going to the SUPER BOWL!! Yeah!! I was intended to podcast last weekend but realized it was a football game and so...NO...no podcast for you!! Sooooorrrrrrryyyyyyy! It was a grreat game and I am very excited for them. I do hope WE win but I am not sure. I do have lucky socks so that should definitely help, right?
I finished the Wendy Johnson socks..Heart to Heart socks in the red. Now I am working on the Diamonds and Cables Socks in a purple Knit Picks Gloss as seen on the right. I am very much enjoying these patterns and will no doubt do more from this book. I will say the only thing I truly dislike is Short-Row heels...ick..but practice makes perfect.
Tatting, I finally sewed on the edging to the hanky that DD gave me. I currently have allowed it to live under a glass (EAPG) bowl made by my GrandFathers old place of employ. It really looks nice there for now. The old antique bowl with a vintage hanky. What could be better?
