The Reasons Why We Knit and Crochet

Another graphic I saw on Facebook recently I thought I'd share.  Certainly to keep calm and not kill people/ keep sane and not go crazy etc is something we all hear and see over and over again.  Though I had to laugh about the itchy wool !

Added a new slipper pattern yesterday to the slipper tab from our good friend Tristi.  Please check it out.  How can you turn down something with the title of EASY Double Strand Slippers.  She says they go fast too.  What a plus fast and easy!  Thank you Trisit.

    Thanks Tristi for the pattern.I will definitely give it a try., did do a pair from another pattern Ifound but they did not work out well . This sounds vaguely like the pattern we gave the Girl Scouts when they made 10 pair for B/B last year. I would like to make at least a couple of pair before the end of June.:+)Have a box ready to come so we shall see. Again thank you.

  2. Love the little graph Sandy. Personally I knit because it is so soothing and because there is not much on Tv that I enjoy. And one more keep my hands out of the cookie jar!!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
