In case you didn’t notice, my blog has a new home. I’m now at wendyknits.net — as opposed to wendyknits.com. A minor difference, but an important one, as this new site is being hosted by a new provider, far away from the Demon Host of Satan where wendyknits.com was located.
So, if you’ve got me bookmarked or linked, please do update same. I promise to try to stay put and not to make a habit of flitting around the ‘net.
Let’s give a big hand to . . .
Marta, of Martaschmarta! For yesterday morning I received this surprise from her:
A wonderful handcare kit from Bliss! There’s gel to put on your hands and gloves to wear whilst the gel is soaking in. Along with some moisturizer and a lemon scrub for all-purpose use. And a set of fun postcards! Thank you so much, Marta! And my poor winter-dry hands thank you too.
Thanks for all your kind words and comments! I promise I’ll have better photos after the weekend. I’ve found that knitwear photographs much better in natural daylight than indoors, even with my beloved Ott Light.
Here it is! Woo-hoo! Don’t I have a huge amount done?
This is knitted in the original yarn called for, Jamieson & Smith shetland jumperweight. I’m using a size 3 (3.25mm) needle. My 32″ ebony circular to be exact. I can’t wait til I get past the ribbing and into the good stuff! Ooh!
Here’s how I keep the colors separated:
It’s a canvas box that’s supposed to be used for storing socks. But it’s perfect of skeins of shetland wool. I bought it online last summer. Don’t ask me where I got it because I don’t remember.
Yesterday the temperature actually rose above freezing! Izzy emerged from beneath the quilt!
She’s being pensive.
