Gift from Husband

My husband brought this sandpiper home for me yesterday. It as a surprise gift. He bought it for me because the name of my blog is Sandpiper Knits. Isn't that great! It sits on our computer stand -- as mascot as I type. He's a sweetheart.

The blog has been accepted to both the Knitters Blog ring and the Knitter's Review blog ring. Welcome to anyone arriving from these rings.

I've signed up as a member of the Mystery Shawl yahoo group. I'm trying to pick out yarn. I'm leaning toward a claret color of this yarn (Jaggerspun Maine Line 2/8). I need to order it soon -- the KAL begins on August 1. It sounds like fun -- it's a mystery shawl because only portions of the pattern of released at a time.

I bought some more yarn to do another Branching Out scarf -- this one as a Christmas present for ??? I'm not sure yet. It's more Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool.

I'm making some progress on the Highland Triangle Shawl. I made an Excel spreadsheet with the stitch number for each row. I had this laminated, and I mark each row of the middle triangle off as I complete it and confirm stitch number.


hi there.

it seems that you have done quite a few knittings
you are so "clever and deft;
quick-witted and nimble-fingered"
