on knitting and healing and other stuff


Posted by Janis on November 21, 2007

cornuyarn.jpg It’s been a better year, so I’m feeling pretty thankful. I always try to count my blessings, but this time of year — I get all misty about it. I’ll spare you most of the mush, but here are a few knitty things I’m grateful for:

1) Great cyber-knitting pals.

2) The Knittyboard.

3) Ravelry.

4) Wonderful LYS’s here in St. Louis: Knitorious, The Weaving Dept., Hearthstone Knits, Kirkwood Knittery. (There are more, but these are the ones I know and love.)

5) A husband who understands my obsession with yarn and needles — and even enables me.

6) Time to knit. Yes, I work, but I have time to knit.

7) My stash. There, I said it.

8) The best reason in the world not to leave the house on Black Friday — there’s knitting to do! Have a great Thanksgiving.

* YIKES – where did that weird little emoticon come from??? I typed an “8”, people! OK – how come I could type “8” just then and it didn’t turn into a smiley? Is my blog haunted?

9) Knitting Daily  – I love Knitting Daily and everything Interweave Press does.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Janis!

    I had that weird smiley face turn up the other day in a totally inappropriate spot when I did an “8” and a “)” together like this: 8)

    Wierd eh?

  2. best to use square brackets to avoid smileys.
