Be Nice! (Hours 6 through 10)

This week’s knitting-for-peace project brought a lot of satisfaction….because I finished a project.   (Any knitter can tell you that there’s an unparalleled joy that comes from weaving in that last little bit of yarn on a piece….then you get to hold it up and marvel at your new creation! 🙂 )  These socks, along with the red hat I made last week, will be packed up and mailed to The Ships Project in the very near future. 

Made for extra-large feet…big soldiers need slipper socks too. 😉
As soon as I finished the socks, I started looking ahead in Knitting for Peace for the next organization listed.  Unfortunately, the next on the list seems to have disappeared from the internet.  I figured I would move to the next on the list and continue checking into the mystery of the vanishing charity.  So, that lands us at Elegant Stitches, a yarn shop in Miami that also provides tons of knitted items to a variety of charities.  The website has free knitting patterns for some of the items needed for charity and a list of current projects and needs….I’ve picked a baby hat and a scarf to complete for Elegant Stitches.  I love that they reach out to several groups around the world with their hand-knit donations.  Today, I buy yarn!  (Which just happens to be one of my very most favorite activities in all of the universe!)

If at first you don’t succeed….

keep trying until you’re ready to bash your head into the nearest unforgiving object. 😉  I seem to be addicted to starting blogs….perhaps I should start listing it as a hobby.  I never seem to be able to get things just how I want them.  Well, this is my newest attempt.  I’m hoping this one will stick.  I actually have another blog that I’ve been pretty good about keeping up, but it is trapped in my business web site….you know, a place where I have to try to maintain an air of professionalism and all that.  I find myself wanting to put things out there in the world that have little to do with my business, so I’ve made the bold decision to move the bits I love from that blog to this one.  Of course, I’ll be adding bits of interest (to me) along the way.  So, if you’re a fan of in black & white, check back here for some of your favorite features.  I’ll be keeping up the fluffy bunny friendly information, if nothing else.  If you’ve never heard of in black & white, don’t worry your pretty little head over it….because it’s soon to be a thing of the past anyway. 😉
