Bits and Pieces

Here's my TIAS day 3. I am improving. My first day, I misunderstood the Fp so that day is a bit of a mess. But, rather than start again I imagine I might be making more mistakes, so I'll just keep going. Always a great learning experience.

Then, last night I attended our knitters group, (we call it knitters but we do all kinds of crafts) Our group makes items for an orphanage in Romania.  One of our ladies works in a second hand store. She found this shuttle and some patterns and a roll of white #20 thread. She thought I'd like to have it, so she brought it for me. I tried this humungous Tatsy shuttle. Too awkward. I found it interesting, but I doubt I'll ever use it. It felt to big and I really like a hook in the end of my shuttle. 

And lastly. Here's a little fun thing I often like to try in mid January. Did you know with a little patience, you can stand an egg on its thicker end. Only in January. And your counter has to be level. This might only be in the northern hemisphere. But it works.

  1. I think you could get used to the big shuttle if you use it for a while. I also found a big shuttle awkward to begin with. Did you know that if you put 3 eggs end to end, the middle one will spin?
