My first Post

Today I decided to start a Blog. I don't have that many friends who knit and sometimes just need to get my thoughts out.

My birthday is in one week. This year my husband decided to take me to a yarn store I found a few weeks ago and let me get whatever I wanted. The store is in Bedford Virginia and is worth the Trip. Yarn Theory has one of the nicest owner and she is so helpful. Anyway I had a blast, getting sock yarn, Flax for a sweater for me and some of my favorite colors [orange and blue] for a new Wahoo project.

I spin as well and am hoping to dye some yarn blue and orange.. but will have to wait a while as I have many UFO's awaiting completion......

I did just finish a prayer shawl from the PRAYERSHAWL MINISTRY and gave it to an acquaintance who has breast cancer. I don't know how many of these shawls I will eventually make, but it was so nice to be able to do this for her and felt great to be able to tell her I had prayed for her as I knit the shawl.
