Secrets Out!


I've held it inside for so long I think I'm exploding! If you go look here you'll see what all the fuss is about.

I feel like Ann- Margret when she heard the news that she was the lucky teenager hosting famous rock star Conrad Birdie in "Bye Bye Birdie". One of my favoite childhood movies. What was that? You weren't raised on MGM musicals? You know those movies.... Singing in the Rain, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Meet Me in St. Louis, so on and so forth.....
hmmmmm, did I get off topic again?

Oooo yes, the "secret". Well have you clicked that link yet? Sweet knitters have contacted me sending their compliments. It is really nice to have that affirmation. Especially since I only slept 4 hours a night for 3 weeks to get it all done in time! Phew!

In the midst of all of it I managed to join the Hand Dyed Yarn Swap. My partner is from Finland and I received the best package from her yesterday. I am totally impressed with the fact that I got gifties from the Arctic Circle! Not to mention Jaan is a really great pin-pal. We have a lot in common; we both have young children, and we knit! what else could I as for in a long distance friendship ;) I will post pics next time of the awesome goodness! My camera needs charging. AGAIN!

Autism Yarn: It will be for sale very soon at Woolgirl.com, proceeds going to autism reasearh of course.... Autism Speaks (which joined with CAN a few years ago and I was supportive of.)

Health conerns:
My Daddy and our family could sure use ya'lls prayers. Found out he has caner last Thursday. The good news is that its centralized in one part of the body so we can all take a deep breath that the survival rate is extremely high.

Say a little prayer for my silly heart again please. Its really no big deal but my cardiologist wants me to follow up with an electro-cardiologist or Arrythmeia specialist? (Not sure on the spelling or proper name for that specialty.) I'm having terrible dizzy spells....... And my Holter reading sucked, again!
I probably need different meds to contol the constant "fight or flight" feeling I have during a normal day ;) that would be pretty cool! hmmmmmm, to actually have a good Poker hand on Friday nights and not have the Tell-Tale sign of a heeving chest and grabbing at my heart like the guy from Sanford and Son! ....... Muhahahahahaha!

Inspired


I am very thankful for the publicity that Autism gets now-a-days. I was inspired to dig into my dyes and come up with this colorway. Its name is simple, Autism...


This ones for you Hillard ;)


I asked Lisa to chart a pattern for Autism Awareness month. What she came up with is fabulous. I can't wait to show you guys next week when I complete the first sock.


Spec's: 300 yds varigated, 100 yds solid (for heel and toe)
bamboo/merino/nylon blended yarn
