Not to mention my gauge was spot on. That always helps me move ahead with a project..... I am almost done with the body.
I am so enjoying using my new Chiagoo interchangeable needles. While this is my first project, and perhaps the final verdict should still be out, so far, I'm extremely happy with them - in every way!
I'd like to share a new (to me) bind-off with you. I ran across it somewhere online, and it was so simple, I failed to save the source, so I apoligise that I cannot give credit due. Anyway, here are a few shots, and hopefully an explanation that makes sense.
Sofee and I are home alone today. The house was chilly, and I put my big fluffy fleece robe on. This has been my view all morning.
This little gadget provided the entertainment for my early morning knitting.
Our New Mexico kids are into making soaps!
This week, I have a fun fiber day planned for Tuesday. A friend and I are going to a spinner/weaver's guild meeting, lunch, and hitting the yarn shop. Anyone find that strange??? More of an explanation of that next week.
Till then - hope all your projects are fun and successful. Oh - I had a great one last weekend. I actually got the Christmas tree back in it's box!
OH! One more thing......has anyone heard of the new "8-hr diet" that is all the rage on the talk shows. Theory is that you can eat whatever you want, as long as it's within an 8 hour window. So, I decided to give it a try. I'm not a big breakfast eater, and seldom eat early in the day, or late in the day. So, for me it sounds pretty easy. My window will be 10am to 6pm. Since I've been up since 4am, and it's now 10:15...... well, I think I'll go have a snack. Needless to say, black coffee is "allowed" outside of the window time. I couldn't do without my coffee. I'll keep you posted on how this works for me.
Take care, and I'll be back next week. k
