Random January Post
Last October I won the prize picked by Kimberley for a scissor fob, over at Knittin' Mittens. She drew the name in November but because she was involved in a move of her household, plus followed by Christmas, she was unable to get it in the mail until this month. That's quite fine by me, as I understand her situation.
Sorry the picture isn't all that good, but isn't it cute! The beads are blue, and there is a mitten charm with a snowflake. She decided that that was an appropriate charm (I totally agree), because she is doing these up for the KAL (she's been kind enough to do one up each month it runs, from last September until it ends in March). Isn't she super sweet?! Go visit her blog and say hello.
Also, since today is my birthday (I'm 38) I decided to order myself a few things. I went to Wal-mart and a few other places looking for size 2.25 mm and 2.50 mm needles (I think those equal out to US 0 and US 1), but the smallest they had was 2.75, which I already own. So, the only way that I can obtain these sizes, was to order them online. I went to Knit Picks and ordered them as well as a book on different pattern stitches. I'll post pics when I get them, which should be some time next week.
I also wanted to try Noro Kueryon (sp) yarn that I've been hearing great things about, so I went to another place online (one that another blog knitter had recommended), and ordered 2 balls/skeins. That is supposed to take longer to ship as it is all the way out in British Columbia, and I'm on the east coast...besides I think I checked off surface mail and that takes longer (and is cheaper) to ship. I'll post a pic of it as well when I get it so you can see the colours.
I'll leave you for now with a recent picture of Tinker Bell relaxing on a box - which she seems to love doing for some odd reason.
