What about leave a flyer of your knitting with pictures at the supermarket, church, bus stop.
Just a suggestion.
Beautiful ! Where can I find the pattern? I love "just because" presents!!!
Years ago, a co-worker told me that his wife and his mother-in-law wouldn't eat mango and did want it in the house. So I bought one for him and he ate it at work. He loved it. Now he is a closet mango eatter.
As for the yarn, it must be the color of yarn to be called Mango. Love that color anyway.
While riding on the NY subway to work, I notice a high school or college student (a boy) knitting a hat. Besides me noticing the student was a NYPD cop and stockbroker in a striking suit.
The stockbroker says to the cop, " isn't that ridiculous, man knitting". The cop turn to him and said, "my father is a tailor". "Maybe he sewn that suit you have on".
Me and a couple ladies laugh. The stockbroker walked to the other side of the train.
Some people are so "entitled" in their own minds.
I switch from knitting to crochet. I stop crochet for a long while and discovered that my crochet hooks (aluminum) was irritating my hands. So I bought bamboo crochet hooks and I am back to crochet. But I switch back to Knitting because I bought some fun knitting needles. They light up! Maybe you should get so fun knitting needles and try small projects. I tried and conquer entrelac knitting.
When I flew to Switzerland and Africa I had NO problems with my crochet hooks and Circular knit needles! But scissors (even the metal tiny ones) they do not like. But I had no problems with my plastic scissors. The children plastic scissors I use to cut the yarn.
Great idea. I would stop in the grocery store every day to buy a bag of ice for my nightly Ice tea!
Aluminum needles bother my hands. I love the feel of wooden needles.
I am the type that goes into a store, see what I want, buy it and waiting in the car for everyone else!
Thank you all! I just bought saran wrap and got a few cups ready with apple cider and soap deterent. Let see what happens.
Because of the warm weather in New York (I am not complaining) but I see a lot of fruit flies in my house and lots of gnats outside around my bushes. Any sure fire way to kill these pesky flies. I tried the apple cider method but this does not work. I got smart fruit flies that fly around the bowl and like to stay on the ceiling. Any suggestions?
I leave all my fruits in the refrigerator but they are still there. Is there a homemade product, I can make and spray on them?
I am a dog person. One day my lawn service found a kitten in my back yard. The kitten eyes wasn't even open. I brought the cat to my vet and they gave the kitten to a "Rich" lady. Now the cat, named Sally Ann, lives in a 5 bedroom house and has a rinestone collar. I bet her mother and siblings are sorry they left Sally Ann behind!!
I bought on sale a chenille sweater and wore it for a photo shoot. Boy I did not know this bad boy can SHED!!! Any where I sat, walked and even in the bathroom I sheded. Never again. And someone gave be a hank of chenille. I promptly return it!
Try crocheting. Or give knitting a try again but try easier and smaller projects. Instead of knitting an afghan, try small scarfs. For crochet, grannies squares. Hope this helps.
I saw on TV alot of college students are looking into "Tiny Houses". They are one - two bedroom houses that can be driven by car or truck to or near the college. They usually park in campgrounds or a friend/relatives backyard.
