First off the needles

Just had to show you this, it is not even blocked yet, but it does make me happy.

  1. What a coincidence - I got that book a few weeks ago myself. I've been interested in doing the fur tape since I first saw it in the Handplagg book, but of course, you actually did it!

    I can't imagine how soft and warm those cashmere mitts must be. Enjoy them.

  8. I am sure there will be a few hands at your home that will want to wear those lovely gloves! I await your making of the purse in the background!
    I wish I had warmer hands after seeing all the fingerless gloves popping up everywhere!

    The fingerless gloves are so pretty! Please let us know where we can find the pattern. I've had my eye on that Japanese book myself lately; I looks quite good.

  29. Oh, so pretty, and from cashmere, so they must be so soft, too.

    I'm catching up with blogs tonight and read both the post about your grandmother and the one about your daughter. They both touched me and I feel privileged (or something) that you shared them with us.

    Dear Lene,

    I love your fingerless mittens. I found your blog link through Celtic Memories in Ireland; I live in Vermont, USA, am a spinner and knitter. Tried weaving, didn't like it.

    My heart goes out to you in your struggles to deal with the epilepsy your daughter has been afflicted with. I will pray for you all. My husband's father had epilepsy, and the meds changed his grand mal seizures into stop what you're doing and stare straight ahead seizures, but he was constantly drugged up for that to happen. He could not drive, of course. It was a strain on his entire family...but it wasn't a child. It is so hard when it is our children hurting and we can't do anything to make the hurt go away. My child's hurt did go away: he was in a motorized three wheeled ATV accident when nearly 14, went up a hill too fast, the bike flipped, landed on him, tore open his vena cava, and he died there on the field, without our having had time to even say, "I love you. Goodbye". It was horrible, and there is still a hole in my heart, of course, even though it was many years ago. (He would be 36 now.) I still have one surviving son, a lovely daughter in law, and three grandchildren, a fourth on the way,...it was a hard way to learn that you can't fix everything! It sounds to me like you are being a wonderful support for her, giving her the love and care and acceptance she needs. I pray that she will continue to have this "good period", health wise, and that perhaps, over time, there will be more good periods and fewer seizure stages, and maybe, some day, they will find other ways to help make her life more "normal", whatever that means. Meanwhile, keep on knitting and blogging, and giving us around the world the joy of reading your blog entries, seeing the beauty you create, including your daughters. Betty

  39. Blocking, schmlocking! They are too sweet! And you should nominate me! Not for any particular reason - maybe to just get some attention...I need a reason to post some more anyhow.
