Shopping Fun!



I had to start 2008 with some cool new knitting stuff!

Just arrived in the mail: My Basspro "Extreme" bag, which I'm going to use to tame my ginormous collection of knitting needles. No more searching through a huge messy pile of needles to find the right one (I hope). This nifty bag comes with lots of plastic sheets that I can use to store my circular needles in by size. It was fairly inexpensive (about $18.00 I think) compared with some of the bags I have seen that are specifically designed for needles, and the word is that it does the job just as well. You can purchase at BassPro

Can't show a picture but I just ordered the cutest mitten kit from Morehouse Farm: Gator Mittens! So cute for the little guys, who love animals dearly and will really like these ones with claws on them! Liam gave me the Shark mittens back today, as they need a seam stitched. So it's repair time!

LOTS of snow here in Spokane today! We were all hoping for a snow day off of school, but no such luck. District 81 is too efficient darn it. The weather guy this morning threw his hands up in the air and said "We're Doomed!" He was just kidding, but it was a good one, as the Spokane news people are always giving these breathless breaking news stories about the 1" of snow that is predicted.

Better for you to have the snow than me - I am NOT kidding! I had a bag like that - but found it too small - so went to the BIG one that is NOT inexpensive - too big for most stuff - but DOES hold the snake pit of needles under control!

well, I may be taking the comment back - after I looked at it on-line, it seems pretty good sized! Mine is bigger than a noteboke - but it does do the job - I gave my old one to Carla and Pam has one in the smaller size and loves it - and has as many needles as I do (thank you Susan Bates) actually, she is kind of a needle snob and has pretty much nothing but the best - except for the inox she stole from me!

Pam, you're a girl after my own heart! I love the fancy needles too! Oh, and some of us had a snow day. and it was glorious even if I'll have to make it up in March.

just wait until YOU are a little old lady, you will find this sort of thing endlessly fascinating.
