Thank you both so much for contributing to teh Walk to Defeat ALS. I met Christy for lunch today and delivered her my thank you gift, a copy of Suss Cousins Knitting for Your Home. It has some neat patterns in it, I think she’ll at least like looking at, if not making. I am attempting to convert her to a full-blown knitter, we worked together and she just was so sick of me talking about knitting she gave it a try herself!
Agnes, I’m pulling together a yarny gift for you, so could you please e-mail me your address so I can mail out your yarny prize.
For several years I’ve watched and loved seeing Agnes knit the Great American Aran Afghan, and several other similar type projects. I finally couldn’t take it any longer and broke down and bought the pattern, as well as the Great Northern American Afghan. I already owned the one she’s currently knitting up, however I’ve never knit it.
So I decided I’d frog my Diamonds & Lace afghan I’ve been occassionally working on for Nick and I, and start the Great American Aran Afghan. I think I’m just procrastinating the bedspread as I know there is no way I’ll be done with it my July, 2010. I really should work on my sister’s afghan too, but I’m just taking a little time right now for me.
