Trying to work up the courage
I have a °1 circular needle, bamboo, that has fairly long tips, 5 1/2 inches. I would prefer 3 1/2. I have one of those as well but it is in use for a long term project (knee length dress). I have sharpened tips before, turning rounded tips to sharp points but I haven't even shortened them. I can't easily replace them so I don't want to mess them up. I know that all I need to do is clip them and sharpen the point but I just can't make myself do it.
After much reading and trying different cast on methods I decided it is the sponge bar after all.I had ordered one but didn't want to wait till next month (shipping from China) so I decided to try the diy method. Carriage will not move across needles in Hold position.so as I wait I will continue on my hand knitting project
Kindness is Everything (knitted shawl) for a lady from my church.
Some women from my church want to have hand knitted shawls, so I ask them for the favorite colors and the size of shawl; also if they are allergic to wool or acrylic . So here it is my finished shawl for one of the ladies from my church ! The yarn is a mix of wool, acrylic and nylon ; I used US#10 (6 mm) needles and have some 'left-overs' from these three skeins. Upper edge is 46 inches, from top down is 24 ". Here it is :
My first attempt at Swedish weaving
Yesterday I posted a question about double knits and was blessed just now to find an abundance of excellent answers to help me find a good pattern. I could not take the time to thank each one of you, so am taking this means of doing so. I love you all. MN

The Tooth "Fairy"
Launch day of Knits & Knacks by Sharon, formerly known as Knit by Sharon. I have branched out from knitted items and today I would like to show you our hand made "tooth". The tooth measures 6 inches by 5 1/2 inches. The top and bottom are held together with a hinge and a locking clasp. Inside are 20 holes to hold the 20 teeth a baby has. We have teeth colours in white, pink and blue and have a variety of coloured fairies depending on what you would like. We can also customize your "tooth" with an initial instead of a fairy. These are not imported but made right here in our shop. We have a limited number of these already made so get your request in early. We are selling these for $25.00 per tooth. This item is exclusive to Knits & Knacks by Sharon
A woman's revenge
'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked.
No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'
