Another blogger I have "met" recieved a craft magazine from the 70's. Well, lo & behold, I recieved one as well, from my Grandma.

The patterns are pretty dated & do not really suit me. But there is one. This long cabled coat. The pattern calls for toothpicks for your cable needle. Creative! Not sure I would make it, as it takes ALOT of yarn. But wouldn't it look yummy in some Noro? Perhaps some day!

I am working on the Fiber trends booties. They are pretty easy thus far. I am using cascade 220 in lilac/purple for the m/c, the contrast is a hand painted yarn. They look really nice together. My only concern is the wieghts of the yarn. Both are worsten weight, but the cascade is thicker, considerably. We shall see as they felt...I hope it works out. Pictures to follow!!!
I need to finish a pair of socks I started too. I do not think I like socks...or perhaps it is just this pattern. I will not give up, I will not give up!!! Anyone have a reccomendation for an "easy" sock pattern????? Again pictures to follow.

Well I finally picked up the needles again. I have not knitted since my back started to hurt, which was end of feburary. Ironicly that is when the baby died, when I had a dream of a m/c & then I awoke to a back ache. Anyway, I started to knit an amulet bag out of noro, to bury this baby in. I will bury it with Alexa's lemon tree .It is just about done, since it is so small & then I will start on some felted slippers for a shop model. I took the yarn from the store last monday & I have not started them yet. I guess it would be good to go back to work with them finished. They are here .

I am no longer making that bag. It was going to be a "diaper bag", but since there is no longer a baby, I no longer need the bag. Thanks anyway.
Not sure when I will pick up the needles again. Perhaps soon, I have a Shop Model I need to make. We shall see.
