Thrift Store Rescue

As Queen of the Design Feature I have many responsibilities.

Two of which are:

  • I must be responsible and thrifty.
  • I must not let my yarn get tangled.

I responsibly and thriftily (Not an easy word to read, is it?) went to the thrift store to find something that would keep my yarn from tangling and rescued this bright and cheerful bag.

Not as cute as one of those special yarn bowls but it also only cost me $1.50.  Just ran it through the washer and it was ready to go to work.

 

 

How am I doing? Queen of the Design Feature!

The most recent get together our knitting and crochet for homeless and other charities group had was another success.

The weather was great so the kids wanted to play outside.  This took the pressure off of me trying to keep up with them so I actually did some knitting!

Nancy got me started with the casting on.  I asked her how she knew how long of a tail to start with and she gave me a wicked smile and told me that it was a guess….

She made the mistake of complimenting me on my tension and even stitches.  Well I got cocky and made a whole row mistake   Didn’t even catch it .  Nancy diplomatically pointed it out and I asked her if I needed to start over.  She gave me an impish (I think she might have leprechaun in her) smile and said “Heck no, that’s called a design feature and will make your piece unique!”

Bless her heart.  I now have a new mission, to be “Queen of the Design Feature”!
