1  Tiny needles + big feet = needing motivation in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by dorthybuht on: June 06, 2008 09:01:03 PM

Here we see one totally finished, very neat anniversary sock that was given to my boy last year.

What's my problem? I still have another one to make for this anniversary and I have no motivation to complete it. I have so much more to do- I'm making it for a size 14 foot. That's 11 and some inches of foot!

Can anyone see a silver lining or am I doomed to knit this thing for the rest of my life?

My boyfriend forgot our anniversary which means he only got half of his present. Behold the sock that took forever (size 1 needles for a men's size 14= so much work)

I got my package from psyche this week!! I love this stuff Cheesy

A very comfortable tee with books on it and one of the four bookmarks that were sent.

A book journal(WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE PINK!!!) and some more bookmarks.

A book tote that makes me feel really incompetent in my own crafting power.

psyche also sent me some Canadian candy which I promptly ate. Oh how I <3 non-American candy. . .

5  dumb question- if a knitting needle and a crochet hook made babies. . . . in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by dorthybuht on: March 31, 2007 10:20:02 PM
This has probably been answered but there were few pictures of what I'm talking about so I'm confused. I recently inherited my g-ma's knitting supplies and I now have a rather odd needle/hook thing. It looks like your standard issue needle until you see the tip- there's a crochet hook on there! What is this? what do I do with it?

I got my package from rhicooqui today!!! What a damn good Saturday this is turning out to be Cheesy Behold the Welsh/Cockney goodness!!!!!!!

A detailed list with comments:

- super cute little blue (felt?) purse
- Umberto Giannini shampoo/conditioner minis (perfect timing- rhicooqui, I'm running out of both)
-  dirty Cockney rhyming slang dictionary (HILARIOUS)
- book of "Auld Scotish Grannies' Remedies"
- a glorious bottle of Guinness Original (I LOOOVE Guinness; I don't know whether I should worship the bottle       or drain it)
- a cup full of Pic'n'Mix candy from Woolworth's (we have similar things here but no marshmellow bananas which are my new favs) containing gummi cokes and fried eggs, some sort of frosting-ish sprinkle discs, some slightly strange looking pink marshmellow shrimps(?). Also a mini Yorkie (those crack me up) and some mini Cadbury's Creme Eggs (which I adore and cannot wait to taste the UK version)
- some Welsh Cakes which rhicooqui explained are traditional
- a Welsh love spoon which is so beautiful and thoughtful Smiley
- some Sweetshop Favourites which I think are hard candies in pineapple, pear, rubarb&custard and cola flavors
- a huge Cadbury's Dairy Milk which we have in the US but I've been told is garbage compared to the UK version
- 2 CurlyWurlys which are carmel covered in chocolate mmmmm. . . .
- a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs which I am now eating and ADORING. I didn't get a single one for Easter this year so I'm pretty stoked on these which are so much better than the ones they sell here that I could really cry
- Twinnings English Breakfast tea which had me excited and whipping out my tea pot until I realized that it's *loose* tea and I am a stupid American without a tea ball or strainer. .  Sad
- Bassett's Liquorice Allsorts (I adore liqorice!!!)
- Bassett's Jelly Babies (which I have to admit are kinda freaking me out)
- Bassett's Fruit Allsorts
- 2 Mars Bars (one of which I have already shared with a British friend)
- 2 Mars Bars Eggs (which the British friend tried to steal)

thank you sooooooo much rhicooqui!!! everything is so great. I can't wait 'til you get your package Smiley

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh ladies!!! and men!!! (if there are some men in this swap);

I got my package today!!!

Firstly a very colorful and warm scarf that reminds me of something Elizabeth Bennet would enjoy:

Secondly, THE BEST TOP EVER. A beautiful tank featuring my husband, Colin Firth as my second husband, Mr. Darcy. On the side are some ribbons that were sent along as well, as a tribute to the ribbon festish in A&E's Pride and Prejudice. I'm going to see if I can put them in my hair without looking funny (which is a rarity)

Thank you soooooooooooooooooo much, raindrops!! I know this was your first swap and you did awesomly. That's not a word but it should be Cheesy
