No Knitting Post

So here I am with my coffee and no knitting to show.


I did finish the glove I was working on but why post about one glove.
The Spectrum Scarf still needs to grow more.
Thought I would show my new favorite thing and some old favorite things.

I love the circular needle organizer I got from Knit Picks.


Now instead of looking through the box I had them in and checking for size I know just what I have when I want to start a project.


Old favorite things. My collection of Martha Stewart magazines.
When my friend Pat was moving out of her house she told me she may have a few old Martha Stewart Living magazines.
This is the oldest one in my collection April/May 1992


I always loved the magazine but was raising my daughters and would never spend money on such an expensive magazine. So whenever I went to the doctors office I would read my fill.
Thanks to Pat I now have many of them up to February 2002.

Empty nest has allowed me have a subcription of my own!

I too love my collection of Martha's Ihave the first 10 years and consult them frequently - they're pure inspiration and practicality all in one!

Every year, for 5 years, for Christmas I ask for a subscription from the kids. I would think it would be a slam dunk for one of them. Go figure.

I like your needle holder. I don't have enough to get one of those yet. I think it is awesome you have all those magazines.

I really need to organize my circs - that looks so useful! (and I totally have the same magazine holders! But mine are full of knitting and spinning mags. Yay Ikea!)

I love Martha Stewart's magazines. My mom picks them up at garage sales. Where did you get those great holders?
