Inspiration, via you…
You know, so many of you have been so dulgarned uplifting lately, I thought that since I’ve made no such positive changes in my life (besides rearranging my office, but that is too frequent to be celebrated) my New Year’s contribution would be to bask in yours!! Just in case anyone else could use a dose of downright inspiration…
Such thought and care goes into everything she touches, including her very blog name.
Talk about making a change. I can’t WAIT to read the words that come out of this adventure!
I have to say that not only do these ladies continue to make beautiful things, they are entirely gracious and make everything they do look like so much fun.
Plus she got the same spinning wheel that I have! And has already mastered it, apparently. Teach me!!
It’s like she said, my cool craftiness overfloweth to the point that it needs its own blog!
Who has exhibited grace and class in everything she’s done this year.
ETA: And how could I forget this inspiration? My MIL has had her first sock languishing at the heel for over a year now, uncertain of where to go next. On New Year’s Day we sat down and I showed her how to do the heel and the gusset, wrote instructions for the toe, and found a YouTube video showing how to graft the toe. After a few phone calls for reassurance, yesterday evening she emailed me to say the sock was complete, and that she was very excited to move on to number 2! I didn’t tell her about SSS...
Ok, and here is my contribution to this world of goodness, just because organization makes me giddy:
And finally, lest you think my narcissism is fading in 2008, here are my final FO of 2007 and the first FO of 2008: appropriately enough more socks for Grandpa (the last ones got rave reviews, so why mess with success?) and fingerless mitts from Last Minute Knitted Gifts for Grandma (in Patons Classic merino, love this “Paprika” colorway! It matches the calorimetry I made for her in December).
(I’m hoping that showing the left hand holding the socks will make you unaware that the right hand is busy taking the picture. Of course that is logical, after all isn’t there an advertising principle that moving food is more appetizing than not moving food? Same thing, totally. See, first it is just a mitt, then it is a mitt holding socks. You don’t even miss the other hand, do you?)
