Connie's Thoughtfulness


I've read Connie's blogs (Far Side of Fifty and Far Side of Fifty Photos and Forgotten Old Photos) for quite a while, and we have become online friends.

Connie sent blocks two years ago that I used to make a Quilt of Valor - Love from the Heartland. Last week, another package arrived from Connie - inside was a circular needle and a vintage knitting booklet. Connie explained that she has been cleaning closets and finding homes for some of her unwanted crafting supplies.

I'll use the circular needle to start an Oddball Baby Blanket once I straighten the cable by immersing it in a hot water bath. The cable is twisted from being stored, but the hot water will make the plastic relax.

The mitten patterns are tempting me to cast on a pair or two.

Thanks, Connie for being so thoughtful.

  5. I love the vintage patterns. For some reason the projects just seem to turn out better. And is it my imagination or do I really hear Duke Ellington music playing and Billie Holiday singing in the background while I knit?

  6. I had a mitten leaflet like that so many years ago when I needed mittens (i.e. living in PA). Congrats on the win.
