Got my Yarn!!
- Got my yarn yesterday and boy was I a happy lady! I started right away on the luna shawl. I've posted pics of what I've done so far. The yarn is probably finger weight yarn (where as the swatch I made up was worsted weight).. So there is a difference in apperance, but only slight. The name of the shawl came about because the shape of the shawl and pattern for some reason reminded me of those giant silkworm moths. Calling it that just didn't sound like something you would want to wear so, instead I named it after the Luna moth (which is green and has long tail-like bottom wings-- but I went for the sound of the name here and not accuracy).. Beside, it is a shawl you would most definately want to wear in the moon-light (luna)..
- I also got my Crochet Fantasy mag in the mail and found a pattern in there for a Shawl Collared Cardigan. Yes, I'm gonn make that too. I have a bunch of Woolease in Mink (which I love).. I've never made a garment other than a tank top so this should be interesting. I will take my time with this one because following lengthy patterns gives me a flippin' headache. It's pattern #14 in the Dec. issue, for anyone interested.
- Stumbled upon a blog this morning that really piqued my interest. http://www.miracole.blogspot.com Knit Witch. She knits, crochets and is a massage therapy student!! Of interest to me because I recently finished massage therapy school and am waiting to take the National Exam (which is required in my state) and hope to be licensed in January. It was just a 'small world' experience. Her blog is cool so check it out.
- I got this cool little booklet from the United Health Foundation and would like to put in quotes from it from time to time. It is called "Be Happy Be Healthy" Here is todays tip: Take a Walk One 40-minute walk can dramatically lower levels of tension and anxiety, and if you're interested in losing weight or keeping weight off, try brisk walking....Walking is easy on the joints, and whether you do it alone or with a friend, it's a great way to take a long, appreciative look at the world around you. For those interested, the booklet is free (it takes forever to get, but is put together nicely). Order it at www.unitedhealthfoundation.org
Have a great day everyone and enjoy your weekend (it's suppose to rain around here all weekend, but we need it badly). Peace~ DAWN
