Most of you know I'm not overly religious, I'm not a big believer in the spiritual world or the supernatural, but I did agree to host five Archangels sent to me by my sister.
In exchange for three wishes.
Paying It ForwardPerhaps this is old news to many of you, but this past Saturday night, I invited Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel and Metatron into my home and they'll be here until Thursday night. I have made three wishes...one for the Earth, one for my family, and one for me, and supposedly, nothing is outside of their ability to have happen.
I have to admit, the "buzz" about the house or the general energy has been different since Saturday night...we'll see if my wishes are granted.
Current KnittingHappy to say I have finished Thaddeus' birthday gift of a pair of hand-knit socks.
Thrilled to have made it with 3 days to spare...and all the ends are even woven in! He gets them on Saturday, along with a couple of the green tea KitKats from Japan.
I also got some work done on the blanket for my niece.
This is two hanks of the Unforgettable yarn so far and it measures about 44"x19" so far. I will end up doing some edge rows on the long side of the blanket to make it a little wider. But the colors have been wonderful to work with.

Lion Brand Unforgettable yarn in two colorways, 200 sts on US10 needles, Linen Stitch in each colorway for fours rows, alternating. Simple as can be.
Katy writes, "Would really like to hear your final opinion of Unforgettable. I've had nothing but trouble with it. It just falls apart in my hands. The only success I've had is to double it up. Love the colors, though!"
I kept thinking the yarn was going to go up into a puff of loose fiber, but it hasn't . I still fear this blanket will pill like crazy though. I'll keep y'all updated.
