Apparently I have a talent for puncturing my extremities with sharp object purely by accident. First there was my foot; then, today I knocked over a smallish Erlenmeyer flask while washing a gigantic Erlenmeyer flask which broke into 3 pieces one of which viciously attacked my poor hand in retaliation. Yesterday I donated blood and they poked me twice! I guess I did volunteer for it, but my finger still hurts!

I am having trouble deciding what yarn to keep unpacked to entertain me for the next month before I move. It's really hard. I should probably just focus on stuff I have already started, but I kinda don't want to. Oh, and the whole "I am getting rid of yarn" thing kinda backfired. After the person bought the yarn, I had money in my PayPal account; well, it couldn't just stay there it had to do something. That money went and bought more yarn. Granted it's pretty yarn in some lovely saturated colors.

I love that yarn. Where do you get yours? Do you have a shop that you buy from or do you order.

I know how to knit and purl, increase and decrease, but I don't understand about short rows and kitchener stitches. I think we have one yarn shop here besides Hobby Lobby etc, so I'm going to go by and see what they have.

I'm actually attempting to finish a crocheted butterfly for my granddaughter's room. But then I want to try my hand at socks. I'm reading Debbie Macomber's books and they all seem to revolve around knitting.

Sorry about your hand. Hope it heals quickly.

I have some good links for short-rows in my sidebar and socks are a great way to learn short-rows. Kitchener stitch isn't to bad once you do it a few times. I bet your LYS will be very helpful.

First of all... thank you for your well-wishes on my blog - I'm so glad you delurked!

Is this a big move you're making? Ugh, we moved cross-country last year and it was insane. I hope your move isn't quite so far.

Also, ouch. Gotta watch out for those inanimate objects that bite. And, um... they took blood from your finger?
