The Beginning of a New Idea


Slowly something has been dawning on me: There are a lot of knitters out there with arthritis in their hands. A lot of them have said, “My hands are so bad I can’t knit any more and I really miss it.” When I say I am still knitting they always ask questions and I always answer. Since this has been happening a lot recently, I have seriously been considering working on a knitting book for arthritics. There are a lot of little tricks out there some people have I don’t, and that I do but others don’t. Wouldn’t it be nice to collect some of them together? The only true problem, question I have is What kind of patterns should be included in the book? They need to be simple, for beginners as well as for sore hands to warm up with, but not so simple as to get boring. I am open to suggestions at this point.


Dishcloths Ahoy!


Six of these wonderful dishcloths have been done for my lovely Sister1. She said she needed some and did not have the time nor the inclination to do them herself this time. Always being a happy knitter, it was a joy to sit and work on these little projects of an evening. They were quickly done and one of those less thoughtful projects, unlike the wonderful sweater called Clark.

Since these little beauties are done I will turn my full attention back to the wonderful sweater called Clark. We are at the point to where we begin shaping. A little nervous I am, but I am excited about the progress made so will head on and see how difficult (or not) this truly is!
