Short Post, Flash Your Finishes

SHORT ‘N SWEET

This will be a short post today, I get to start my prep for a scope.  Fun.

OFF MY NEEDLES

Not a great picture, I apologize and since it’s still on the blocking pins — cotton takes SO long to dry, I haven’t had a chance to try it on.  I have a slight suspicion it might be a little bit big, but you never know.  It could be perfect.

HOW PRETTY IS THIS?

I saw this lovely knitting gauge/needle gauge on the Quince & Co. website this week and was immediately taken with it.  I HAD to have one and it came in the mail today.

Most of my knitting paraphenalia is pretty utilitarian (not counting my Knitpicks Harmony needles) and that’s OK, especially since my knitting gets pushed into some sort of bag or tote when it’s not being worked on.  Sometimes, though, I need something a little special, something that’s not only useful, but also pleasing to the eye and pleasant to the touch and this filled the bill.  I just love it.  You can see more goodies here.

PARTY ON

More fun with linkies here, here and here.
