When one is knitting cables, one needs a cable needle. I had a favorite one. It was a hook. I like them because the stitches don't slide off. I put in my knitting basket. I heard it land. I can't find it. I have looked everywhere for it. I have another one but, I don't like it as much. It is a different style. I have looked for the kind I like a couple of places but, I had not been successful. I went to Rainbow Knits, where the alpacas are to get a new cable needle. They had several of the kind I don't like. I asked the clerk and she said there was something in a different spot she thought was for felting. Lo and behold it was the kind I like and half priced. It was only a $1.05 what a deal.

On the right-the one I do like!
A yarn store is dangerous and I looked around a little...big mistake. I found this yarn that is knitted together for the intended project. I saw a sample and it was gorgeous. I have big plans for this!
Then I got some alpaca sock yarn. My kids love socks made out of it. My son is especially found of it. The color is called Hydranga. I think it looks like faded jeans and would be ok for guy.
I have finished the house in Holly Berry Farm Christmas
I started May from Prairie Schooler Sping and Fall, In case you can't guess, it is a robin.
I shouldn't complain since parts of Michigan is flooding. Picture of the radar. Some interesting things:
we are on the cusp of 2-4 and 3-7 inches of snow. The pennisula that projects in to Lake Superior will get between 8 and 18 inches. Can you believe that! It should make for an icky commute tomorrow.
I had some great responses from my last post about my box. I loved hearing about your family members who used the boxes. Many grandfathers used them ofr lunch boxes. I can completely see that. I don't think the one I got looks like it has been used. You can read more about it HERE. It is so much fun to get a conversation going about this.
Thanks for stopping and thanks for the great comments.
Hope it is spring where you are. I think we will end up transitioning back to winter.
Keep on Stitching
