Handknit With Love

A longtime friend just entered into hospice care this week.  Although we are close at heart, we are not close in miles, so I can't be there to help her and her family.  I'm one who needs to DO something and I had already made and given her a quilt a couple of years ago, so I went to work on knitting her a pair of cozy slipper socks.  Very little in the grand scheme of things, but it brightened her day when they arrived in the mail and I know she will be reminded of how much I love her when she wears them.

The pattern is Chunky Knit Slipper Socks and the awesome printable wrapper is from Cobberson & Co.

What Happens?

What happens when your friends find out that you are knitting hats for charity to use up your yarn stash?  They give you their stash!  Thanks, Kathy.  It's probably a good thing that I have more yarn though (not that I was in any real danger of running out) because our internet issues were only solved temporarily.  This weeks "solution" is to bump our our speed, but that's not working either and service is still sporadic.  Oh well...less time on the computer means more time to knit!

No Internet Means...

We have been having trouble with our internet not staying connected for the past couple of months.  Multiple calls to tech support, visits from the cable guy, a new modem, and a new router weren't of any help.  Last week I reached my breaking point and threatened to change ISP's if the problem wasn't corrected.  Apparently they didn't want to lose a customer because they sent someone right out to change the line into the house.  Low and behold that fixed the problem and our internet is running full speed without interruption.  No internet means, no blog posts, but it also means that I was actually doing something a little more productive than blogging and pinning patterns to Pinterest. I knitted eight hats that will be donated to a local pre-school!  Maybe the internet should go out more often...
