Clicking and clacking




means it's knitting weather. I've discovered I love knitting with bamboo needles - so light and so smooth. Last night I started knitting a square - three times. I have a plan to make knee rug, but couldn't decide what size needles to use or what stitch to use. After three false starts, I've decided on moss stitch, which I think will look interesting in this variegated yarn.

This afternoon has been cutting time. I've rotary cut masses of pieces for my Grandma's Star blocks. Such a boring task. Now I'm hand piecing up a storm - that's the fun part!
