Round and round and round it goes

If you ever want your inbox to go weirdly silent for an entire day, offer a lot of very nice people something you only have one of. Niddy-noddy? Anybody? Drill a hole and reposition an arm? Use as is? Take one arm out, thread a string through the hole to suspend it by and hang cat toys from the bottom arm? Help me out here.

Meantime, I was discussing something with a friend the other day and she tried to describe her favorite shade of purple. She finally pulled out her phone, went to her alma mater’s site, and there it was in full and official color.

(Actually, I had something like that kicking around…) So today, it didn’t matter what I’d planned on, it leaped onto the needles.

Funny how that happens.

I absolutely love my Ashford noddy-noddy so I can see why proportions matter (I’m 5’4″). If you don’t like Craigslist, maybe one of your kiddos will post for you? I’ve sold a bunch of craft stuff on Gumtree (here in UK) and it was win-win. Ashford loom, tailer’s mannequin, sewing machine. And met some nice people, too. Cash on collection only so no question about delivery or condition. Some people arranged to view things they didn’t fancy and that’s cool. No pressure. Things find their way to the right people. One of the weirdest things I sold was leftover cat litter (after my cat died) and I posted a funny ad, included some brand new hand knit cat toys, and the lady who bought it arrived driving a Jaguar!

I’m sure it’ll find a suitable home…

I love this project! Will you share the stitch or is it bound for another book? *big smile*
