New Shop

I found a yarn shop in Claremore called Unwind, and it was there that I found three sets of new needles- a pair of size two bamboo- so slick and sharp- and two pairs of circulars, both short ones- 16 inchers. I love them! They are nearly identical to the two pair I had to carve down from size 11 to 6 myself, using elbow grease, sand paper and patience. I am working on a baby hat and booties in blue for my friend Christine, and have a lot of the blue lace baby afghan completed...but not all. Still struggling with that. It looks like it might be nice today. I haven't got any plans. I don't even want to put on clothes. On the upside, my feet are doing better. The new inserts helped, and the flare up on my horrible left one seems to be subsiding. So there are things to be grateful.

New Needles!

My dear friend Kat brought me some knitting needles she inherited and I was so happy! There is a wide variety, some small ones I can't find anywhere, and some giant ones I am so excited to have. I am so thrilled. It almost makes up for the fact that my left foot is being a total pill and I have been hobbling for a few days. Sent Bug to get me new inserts, which I hope will help. It's really torment the last few days. Today tore it. I wore extra thick socks and a pair of black ones over that, and brought two different sets of inserts....changed back and forth, fought with them off and on. I am ready for something to not hurt.
