~it is a simple thing...black & gold since i live in "HAWKEYE" country!
~i am a daily visitor to www.Ravelry.com/lbquilts and www.Facebook.com/LindaMarieShultz ~i had a blog on my mchsi email before we moved, but cannot access the dashboard to keep it going, so started this new one! you can still view it: http://www.heartofthehawkeyes.blogspot.com/ called ~ g'ma's grapevine ~
~i knit everywhere ... in public, in private, and take it with me always! it's so much more travel-friendly than my quilting was. i am obsessed with lace: shawls/stoles, socks, curtains, sweaters(baby & adult), hats/scarves are some of my projects. i also love fairisle(2/multi-color) Christmas stockings...i made one for each of my 6 g'kids several years ago.
~my obsession with knitting is shared with my knitting budde, CINDY, whom i try to knit with at least once a week during her lunchhour. it's handy that there is a little yarn shop, Home Ec, just a block away from her office!!! she is my 'bkff' ~ best knitting friend forever!!
~my little 4-legged companion, Wrigley (a brown,white,black shihTzu) sits with me while i knit. since i am retired from band-directing(33 yrs) i have a LOT more time to spend on my obsession!
~my husband, TERRY, is really understanding, but i doubt he really understands this obsession with creating something artistic, the challenge of figuring out a lace pattern, the perseverence it takes from beginning to end of a project, the joy of gift-giving, & lastly, that i like to keep my hands busy!! (i used to play instruments along with all my band lessons when i taught!) since terry is a avid sports-minded retiree from teaching/coaching/principaling we watch a LOT of sports! GREAT KNITTING TIME!!!
~~NOW, WHERE ARE MY 'STICKS' & 'STRING' ??!!!
