I started making them in search of a way to have needles to teach some of my students to knit. They are made with smooth dowels. If I have the students make the needles, they are more likely to stick with the learning process. I will write a how-to and send it to you in a few days along with a pair for you to try out.

Texas heat & Wyoming snow

It has been SNOWING here in Wyoming all day. Yes, you read that right - SNOW. So far, five - seven inches, and still falling in huge, wet flakes.

So, ladies, I would welcome some of your Texas weather, but since it is still winter here, I will take chocolate instead.

Thank you so very much. My DD (with Asperger's) is the one who got me started on knitting. She wanted to learn so I had to self teach myself. Now that I'm hopelessly addictied, she doesn't want to knit~GO FIGURE! DH is very handy, so maybe if we could make her a pair of needles of her own she would take some interest in it again.

We moved back to Texas 2 years ago after living in South Dakota for 11 years. That is my home and getting used to the heat/humidity of Houston is an adjustment. My girls and I still miss the snow, but not the long winters.

Spearmint Candy is on the road to Texas...I was going to get a picture of it ....but my camera died. It is a cute blanket. Maybe the next knitter can post a picture! It's nice to have blankets travelling!

Alas, I should be banned forever more from Charity Knitting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so sorry guys, I have no good excuses so I won't try to give one. I got the letter, and I want to send the blanket along. To be honest, I thought I could do the border, but I really can't. I tried, but to no avail! I finished the last section though and I am ready to send it along for someone to do a border. Please let me know who I should send it to and it will be on its way. I'm really sorry guys and I understand if you never let me work on a blanket again!!!! :((
