Interweave Press published a book by Leigh Radford entitled OneSkein. The book showed a lot of fantastic knitted items you could make using one skein of yarn. Once you signed up you where assigned a Secret Pal for you to send a skein of yarn for 2 months and the third month you sent a knitted or crocheted item using One Skein.
My secret pal has been such a dear and the skeins I received were exactly what I would have chosen for myself. As impressed as I was in how she knew what I would like without us ever meeting, the item she knitted for me is something I will cherish. I am still trying to imagine how anyone could knit on toothpicks. Yes, I received a scarf pin, with beads, knitted on toothpicks.
Can you believe this piece of art. I wish the computer had feelavison because it is so soft. I thank her again and again.
My secret pal is getting fingerless mittens from me. I use them mostly in the winter when the steering wheel is cold and I just need something on my hands until the car warms up.
I have to get these into the mail for her and I need to start on another pair for myself. I lost the ones I keep in the car.
I really do weave, I will show you what I up to in the next post.
