Musings and wanderings
My mom and I learning how to knit. She's left-handed so it's keeping our instructor, Judy at The Parrot Stitch, on her toes. I hope we can go for our next lesson next Tuesday. I want to learn how to purl! My end goal is to be able to knit socks. I have chronically cold feet and finding warm socks to wear in the winter is nigh onto impossible here in the Deep South where 50 is considered da** cold. Anything under that is hibernation weather and pile on the blankets! Knitted wool socks should fit the bill nicely.
When I was looking at Nadia Tate's ACEO's yesterday I saw Dolphin Mermaid. Lo and behold HAED released the chart yesterday afternoon! I really like that one a lot. The chart is on my wishlist now and the ACEO will be purchased next week when I get paid. I'm sure there will be a couple of other ACEO's that I get too. Probably Geisha Fae, and I really really really want Snow Kitty Fae. And Wisteria Fae! I have the chart already. And I really want Flute Mermaid too. Will have to wait for the print. I do play the flute, though I haven't had it out in quite a while now.
Squares 4 Survivors is undergoing a few changes. They're expanding their mission to include survivors of all types of natural disasters, with hurricane survivors still being the main focus. Mrs. Sandie has a round of voting going to determine exactly which charities they will work with.
And my brother is engaged! Can't remember if I mentioned that or not. His marriage to her has been the worst kept secret on the planet for 2 years now and it's finally official. They're hoping for May, but there's still a lot of details to be worked out.
