Today I was the recipient of a random act of kindness which was a new, and I must say lovely experience for me. I was walking in to the local supermarket when an older couple approached both carrying boxes of chocolate coated pretzels. The man walked up to me, handed me a pack and wished me a nice day. At first I thought they were giving out samples of a new product but the lady explained that 'he' liked them (that's why they had so many) and he wanted to make me happy.
Mission accomplished - I felt great, they were happy and I have something yummy to enjoy tonight!
Received another interesting parcel in the mail the other day. While I was doing a bit of online shopping from a shop in the UK, I saw these Addi Weave-Knit needles. They weren't cheap but I had to have some.
With these needles you can knit and weave at the same time so it will be interesting to have a play with them when I finish my other 5 UFO's.
I've been fiddling around with little things lately as I haven't had much time to devote to my crochet or knitting. I made these Pocket Book slippers for our CWA craft stall coming up in July.
Before you put them on, they look like little pocket-books, hence the name. Apparently nursing homes love these as they stay on much better than some others and are good for people confined to bed. They'd also be good for travellers on long flights as they're small enough to pop into your handbag. (I've tried several times to rotate this next pic but it doesn't want to play properly so you'll have to skew your head sideways to see it properly - sorry.) If you'd like the pattern, its here.
That's all for now - hope to have something more to say (and show) before too long. In the meantime, see you at your place.
