Re: KAL ~ Knit for the love of it! Sept 30 - Oct 6

Sonya...if Erica is too busy, I know Kaysie was making them for a while. She hasn't been on much anymore though. I see she just dyed some yarn on FB, so she may be an option?


Think I have everything ready so we can get out quickly in the am. My appt is 15 min after the kids have to be at school. I can't find DS's backpack. I hope he knows where it is in the am!

Dani please send me a text if you get a Fi update.

ok, I'll mention it again when she's back on and feeling better. I used a book light tonight. It kept falling down though. I will be posting a wip in the morning. I need some opinions.

i missed this. yes VERY counterintutitive for me as well. I'm a drag and drop kinda gal. I'm sure the apple speak is great and you can do all kinds of things w/it. I just don't know how and and it takes too much time to learn. I just do the basics and hardly get by that way. I am sure I will love the kindle when it comes. 22 more days

I know Fi has better suggestions, but here's a reasonably priced one that has two different settings it looks like.http://www.rei.com/product/825732/bl...gizmo-headlamp
Or this one for fun http://www.rei.com/product/796685/le...e-led-headlamp
I know the one's Fi talks about have different settings and you can flip red on them to dim them etc., but the best price I can find on those is $50.

nope, sorry.
I haven't preordered mine yet. Hubby was talking about a possible Yule present, and he gets mad when I buy myself things near birthday/anniversary/holidays so we will see. I'd hate to see them sell out.

Its the Ashford traditional - I'll get you specs in the am . It spins soooo smooth and quiet comparatively, I it! Can't wait to get some fiber going. What is the difference btwn a roving and a batting?

Sonya...I can probably make some...maybe see if you can find samples and I can go from there...don't know if I'll be able to put all the guys on a shirt. Maybe one or two characters.
