All in Needlecraft
Point form catch-up
I got a tweet this morning about a new product called "The Knit Kit". It contains a small pair of scissors, stitch markers, point protectors, stitch counter, thread cutter, crochet hook and a measuring tape and retails for a mere $20 US. I cry "Highway Robbery!" as I made my own "knit kit" for far less than that more than a year ago, and by pure accident rather than whim! Find out how to make one for yourself.
This has been good for my reading list. Being upright for too long makes me dizzy and faint, so I spent most of the weekend lying down and reading or dozing. Last night I discovered the Ruth Rendall mysteries -- I'm hooked.
I'm pretty darn' happy that I've not bought "things" for people but have, instead, put time, effort, and a whole lot of love into making gifts by hand. There is something deeply satisfying about gifting from one's talents -- I'm left feeling that I've truely given a gift from the heart.
