Tap, Tap, Tap


Jeanne recently asked for a special pin for someone.  To go with something beautiful she had just finished knitting.  She asked for a circle. 

I give you…………..a Circle


 Copper Circle Shawl Pin with Amazonite and Swarovski Crystals……..


Copper Circle Shawl Pin with Poppy Jasper and Swarovski Crystals.  Thanks, Jeanne, for the opportunity to design something for you – I love when someone comes to me with an idea and it turns into something I’m happy about.  I’ve uploaded these and a few other goodies to The Shop today – more updates this week – I’ve got quite a few pins beaded and finished today – I’m just tuckered out from all the hammering!  Go, look, finish that Holiday shopping – or reward yourself for a job well done getting all that holiday shopping finished!

 Thank you so much for all the wonderful birthday wishes for Tim – he had such a good day – he stayed a bit longer and I’m bringing him back to his dorm tomorrow after I get out of work.  And then picking him up Friday for the nice long break.  It’s always nice having him home – and having him want to stay home instead of flee!

Also, thanks for all the concern for the wrist.  It is a bit bothersome.  I did buy a brace while I was foodshopping yesterday – because I couldn’t hold onto the cart – you know, how you bend your wrist to do that?  Well, it was getting very achy.  So I decided to baby it.  Last night I knit a bit – but after a few rows and twisting my wrist with every stitch (I do that and didn’t realize it) it became sore.  So today I made a butt load of pins.  And knit a few rows – and it’s not as bad.  The pin making doesn’t really affect that hand – it’s just a “holder” hand.  I do everything with my right.  But darn – what am I going to do if I can’t knit?  I know.  Go to the doctor as Laurel was kind enough to point out to me.  But, but, but.  I will if it’s not improving.  I promise.  Thankfully all my Christmas knitting is done – that I had promised to get done.  There were still some things I wanted to try to get to…….blame it on the ice. 

And if that’s not enough to cut into my knitting time……………I’ve been really taking a lot of photo’s with the new camera and putting them up on my DA page.  Although the weather has not cooperated with me getting outside and snapping photo’s – I did manage to get a few I’m almost happy with. 

Have a Great Night!

  1. Beautiful! (Just the other day I was in my LYS, waiting in line, so I picked up the magazine, found the picture of your pin and started boasting to my line-mates that I knew you. Everyone oohed and ahhed!)

  2. I hope your wrist feels better soon. I know how much it sucks to not knit because of wrist/hand/arm pain. It’s a pain in the butt is what it is! Fortunately you could get other things done. Feel better soon!
