It's been a few weeks since I posted, and yes...
I'm still knitting!
Finally checked a Clapotis off my 'to knit' list!
I used Noro Silk Garden Sock with some modifications to the size.
I was in need of some instant gratification,
so I knit up a few new dish cloths.
And I've been working on my Hayward sweater...
...still. Almost to the sleeves!
And there's always a sock...
And I decided to cast on the Elinya shawl...
don't judge! ;o)
And lest you think I've forgotten about the stitching...
I also started this great Blackbird Designs piece...
Birds of a Feather.
I've been wanting to stitch it for a long time,
and the Instagram factor sent me over the edge!
Are you on Instagram?
I am... kwiltykimknits2! Would love to follow you!
And look what I splurged on!!!
Needle Needs Frames!!!
See! I AM still serious about the stitching!
I can't wait for these to arrive!
I am amazed at the friendly, generous, kind people I have met via social media!
One such person (hi Gretchen!) on Facebook saw a post of mine
about sampler stitching.
She messaged me to say that she had recently moved her mother, an avid stitcher,
into an assisted living facility.
Her sight is not what it once was,
and she will never be able to stitch everything in her stash.
She offered to send me a box of her stash!!
I was beside myself.
So I agreed,
with the promise that I would do two things.
Send her mother a letter to thank her for sharing her stash
Pay it forward.
The box was literally packed full.
More than I could ever use!
I'm paying it forward by offering a portion for a giveaway!
this is packed into a flat rate medium box,
ready to ship off to it's new home!
Charts with linen!
Charts with linen AND floss!
Would you like to continue the Pay It Forward?
If you would like to continue the kindness, just leave a comment on this post
indicating your willingness to continue the movement!
I'll send the winner this box of stash,
and if there's something you don't need or isn't in your taste,
please have your own giveaway
and pay it forward!
And if you'd like to drop a letter
to this lovely woman,
let me know!
I am certain she would love to read letters from fellow sampler stitchers!
I'll draw a winner on Black Friday!!!
Tell your friends!
Tis the season.....
