Two Projects to Share....

Working on my Feather and Fan afghan, plan C now in action. Working with the lighter gray currently which will be the middle section of the afghan. You'll note 3 variegated yarns already used, 3 will follow the light gray will continuing using the dark gray and the tan between to highlight the colors and make it an appropriate size. A bit of a cheat, in that it's not finished; but...finally the design is! Since this is the 3rd go round, I'm pretty excited by having that finalized. Plan A was alternating the dark gray with the various variegated yarns...which presented the first problem (thought I had lots of the dark gray and those sections were going to be large); Plan B was to alternate the dark gray and the tan between the variegated yarns...given the amount of yarn, those sections weren't going to be wide enough to make the ghan an appropriate size...........thus I've settled on Plan C. Actually think it's plan D....somewhere along the line (believe between plan A and plan B thought about using a different color or colors with the gray). Anyway...........this final plan gets the job done using the yarn in my stash along with yarn that was donated, so I feel like I've accomplished something positive. lol
You'll notice this button on my sidebar with a link. About 2 weeks ago I joined Super Points and have been earning points by watching video's, doing survey's, and spinning the superlucky wheel daily. Yesterday, I converted some of my points to obtain $20.00 in Amazon.com gift cards. Will take a couple of days to be active, and then I can shop. I've already picked out a knitting pattern book, and a circular needle holder I'd like to buy; so sorta finished in that the project was to earn the points, and convert to them to either cash, prizes, or gift cards. Sooooooooooo, I've converted them to gift cards for Amazon.com. Pretty excited and plan to do continue the process of earning points. I should also mention for those of you who love coupons...they have tons of great coupons to help you save money, not just on groceries; but lots of things you need around the house.

You can do the same, click on the button here and or in my right sidebar and join. As soon as you post a profile and click to verify your email ady, you can start winning/earning points too. I know Amazon has other things like household items, books, electronics etc, but naturally I first went to look at the craft stuff. lol

Finished object Friday Badtes and links in left sidebar. Join us, it's fun!

  8. I do not knit, it takes me too long to finish a project and I lose interest halfway. I've tried several times and decided to leave that to others. I very much admire your work, though! It's beautiful.

  9. Sandy, I replied to your comment on my blog but I have no idea if you get notified about that or not. You have the "no-reply" return address still on and I can't email you. So, just in case, here's my reply again:

    Hi Sandy! The wooden spool things are called peg people and you can find them in every size and shape here:

    However, they don't have bulk pricing. If you're looking for larger quantities, try here:

    Happy weekend!

  10. Thanks Dutch Girl for the follow up, will check into it. I perfer to have responses here, vs filling up my mail box. I find it hard sometimes to know who's who when I get an email out of context. So many people use real names with emails and other names on blogs I often don't know whom I'm responding with when it's not on the blog. Plus, with multiple blogs, it helps to separate things for me.
