Knits and News.........

It has been really busy here at Miss Eff's. I don't know if I am coming or going. And of course, my house shows that!!!

But things will slow down in a couple of weeks. So at the moment, I guess I need to enjoy the merry-go-round ride that is our life! I will try to catch you all up on everything but it will take several posts. So bear with me .......... and I'll keep talkin'!

I have been trying to knit every free moment I have. I knit in the car. (OK! OK! I will knit when other people are driving! You talk on your cell phone!!!) I knit before meetings. I knit all evening. I knit over lunch. I just knit.

There are lots of projects on the needles at the moment. OK ... there are four plus in active knitting mode. Uhhh.... maybe that's a couple too many??? But I do have a completed project to show!!!

Handspun Shetland wool from Willow Homestead in Redgranite, Wisconsin. And look at that button!

Vintage 1930's celluloid button that I bought here. Cute????

Now to find just the perfect person for this hat. First of all ......... they need to live in a cold climate. And walk to work and to school. And they really should have 2 dogs.... a terrier and a smaller dog. Doesn't have to be a scotty dog.

And they should have a hat that currently looks like this!!!!

Suggestions??? Volunteers???

In other quick news.......... Yesterday, Phil Crandall and I went to the state Buy Fresh - Buy Local meeting to represent the Quad-Cities chapter. Great meeting ......... we learned a lot. But best of all, Phil and I came up with some great ideas to move our chapter forward. So stay tuned, check out the webpage and the Facebook fan page for Buy Fresh - Buy Local QC.

Now, to find an owner for that hat.....................................

Holy cow! Just stumbled across this post...from 3 years ago?! How neat to see something made with my yarn. It looks like you must have bought a skein of MaryBay's ivory from me somewhere along the way. Thanks for sharing!!
