It Is Time...

You know you've been home a long time if:

1. The house is clean

2. There is plenty of food

3. There is a respectable FO pile

4. You're up to date on Dr. Phil

5. You start to make new friends





If you crochet and want a quick gift for your fiber friends, this little one can be done in minutes and uses teeny amounts of yarn. I added a "handle" to mine to attach it to my knitting bag because I save the snippings and use them for stuffed objects.
You will find the pattern here.

Excerpted from an email to friends:

Well it was bound to happen. I accidentally went to Knit Picks and slipped over the keyboard and ordered the Harmony Options set. I just didn't see it coming, it all happened so fast. Even the cable needle set seemed to magically appear on an order confirmation. Just didn't see it coming. It could have been someone else, I guess it was just my time.

I spent a lot of time at home this weekend and I organized some but oh boy would I love to have spent some time cleaning. :) It's not a pig sty, though.

OOO, Harmony sets. I want those pretty bad but I think I'm going to get them for Christmas!!

Happy Knitting

How come that - #1 - doesn't happen to me ;-) I need to do the laundry but then, I could also persuade the kids to start wearing their winter clothes!

Congratulations on the new job. It looks like you are winding down on your time off.
And, yes, I've just received an order confirmation for some supplies that I'd "forgotten" I ordered a while ago. Or last week. ;)

Oh yeah, I just did that myself - except I ordered them for my sister and just ordered tips for myself since I already have the Options line in the nickel.

I ordered the Harmony double points a while back. Oops, I didn't mean to really...it was an accident (tee hee)

Sonya said...

I've had that KnitPicks sneaking up on me too. I love my Option needles, but I think I need some of the Harmony tips too.

Congratulations on your new job!

Welcome back :)

Isn't that funny how that can happen? Who would have thought needles could be so devious?

Nora said...

Aaaah, Knit Picks...

the same thing happened to me! The Harmony needles were screaming out. I had to buy them. Actually, it was a little harder than that. The internet site wouldn't accept my order, so I had to call customer service. uhoh

Ha! The same thing happened to me the other day! Cable needle set and all! It's like you trip and fall on the 'buy now' button.
