Remember Lumberjack? He's now Lumberjill...

It worked! Isn't she lovely? I can't wait to get back to some real acid dyes, but for $1.48, I have some actual usable sock yarn. Sweet.

I'm a sewing fiend these days...I'm working on a hoodie for Christmas for my 14 year old step daughter. She's the opposite of my 4 year old, who cries when she is forced to wear jeans, but sometimes it's just more fun to sew for my oldest. She takes chances. She likes wild.

WHoo I loveee that fabric!
I have a question, about circular needles. I replaced my metal needles, with Bamboo ones and then I read your comment about circular needles. Do you use them the same way? What kind do you prefer?

Bamboo is great, too. It takes the stess off your joints and lets your shoulders and wrists relax a little. Emails me at alexcateye (at) msn (dot) com. There are a lot of videos on youtube that show easy ways to wrap your yarn to make you feel confident. There are sooo many different ways to knit. None of them are wrong! :)
