Knitting may not on the surface
seem relevant to engines that run
the world, but at its essence, it is
actual quite vital. For knitting,
which can express so many emotions,
most often expresses love. And when
all else is lost, love is what most
often stays with us.

It has been a very cold and wet
day here in the deep south so I
have been staying inside by the
woodstove, drinking hot chai
I ordered a 9 inch circular needle
to knit my sock with and it
is working out just like I wanted.
I will switch back to dpn's when I
work the heel and gusset since that
is what I know how to do, but then
it will be back to this little circular
needle because I like it.
One problem I was having while
working the cable of the pattern
is the length of my cable needle,
it was just too long and kept
getting in my way. My solution?
I went out and found a pecan stick,
whittled it down, sand papered it
smooth, added a little stain and
polyurethane and made just what
I needed. It's working great.
I forgot to take a photo of my
reading, oops, but I am reading
How to Catch Frogs and am
finding it a very easy and relaxing
