My knitting fears, hopes, dreams, and what comes of them.

Pic-Chubby Post: Yarn and FOs!

I know I talked about free wool a little bit in my last post. I have since e-mailed Bernat to try and find out how old it is, and I've taken a few photos of the labels. Here's my pile of wool (this is excluding the stuff Becky was given):

Here's a close-up of the Bernat Meadowspun:

And the Glenspun:

There was also a skein of Companion 3-ply yarn. It's reeeally soft.

All-in-all, there's some really nice yarn. I'm looking forward to turning it into socks.

Now for some FOs! My swap partner received her mug warmer, so I can post a picture of it now.

The pattern can be found here. I used Caron Simply Soft in Deep Teal Heather on US #8 needles. This was a really quick knit, I had it done in an evening.

Also, a (mostly) finished snatchel!

It still needs ovaries, I'm afraid. I knitted this on US #6 and #7 DPNs, using several different types of yarn. Also, I used 2-stitch i-cord for the drawstring instead of crocheting a chain. I love the way this turned out! It's almost too cute to be vulgar. ^_^

I'm working on the commissioned scarf, which I've decided looks like neopolitan ice cream. I'm also working on my afghan, but had to start over when I figured out I had cast on 224 stitches instead of 225. *sighs* At least I was less than twenty rows in.

Back to work.

I love the mug warmer! I want to find a cute crochet pattern for one, but then I remember I rarely drink hot beverages....

Jährlich sterben in Deutschland knapp 1000 Menschen (etwa 3 pro Tag) aus Mangel an Spenderorganen.

Dabei sind 2/3 aller Deutschen für Organspenden und sind auch selbst bereit Organe zu spenden. Aufgrund organisatorischer Probleme wird diesem Wunsch jedoch oftmals nicht entsprochen.

Desweiteren gibt es strukturelle Probleme im Gesundheitssystem welche angegangen werden müssen.

Um diese Probleme an den deutschen Bundestag heranzutragen wurde eine Petition gestartet.
Bitte hilf mit deiner Unterschrift bei der Petition für mehr Organspenden![/COLOR][/SIZE]

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

רציתי לחלק אותכם במקרה שעברתי אחרי הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במהלך שלוש שנים אחרי המאורע, חשתי מדוכאת, ללא שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. עם טיפולים רפואיים רגילים לא יכולתי להשתקם וכתוצאה מכך פניתי ל- [b][url=]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. המליצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר מכיל מסאז שוודי מפנק במיוחד אשר גרם להתעוררות חושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. קשה לי להמחיש את השינוי אותו עברתי, אומנם זה היה טיפול עיסוי שוודי ראשון, הרגשתי נפלא, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם כוחות חדשים, שמחה ומוכנה להמשיך הלאה.

[b][url=]עיסוי שוודי[/url][/b] הוא עיסוי המתאפיין ב מוזיקה נעימה, מוזיקה נעימה ומוזיקה נעימה. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע עדין על המגבת אחרי שחשפנו את הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. נמרח שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, לאחר מכן תנועה מלטפת ועדינה מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. לאחר מספר תנועות מפנקות מתחיל הטיפול בצידו השני של הגוף, אחרי אותם תנועות על הצד השני מתחיל תהליך של לחיצות רפואיות כי הגוף התרגל למגע מפנק ומרגיע וזה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול ספא מפנק של עיסוי עד בית הלקוח.

אישית לא האמנתי כי דברים כאלה יכולים להיות עד אשר התענגתי עם מסאז איורוודה ברמה כזאת, המעסה המקצועי אליי הביתה עם מגע כלכך מפנק אשר לא האמנתי שיכול להיות. ממליצה לכל אחד ואחת אשר מעוניינים ב עיסוי רפואי, [b][url=]מסאז[/url][/b]' או סתם פינוק מלטף באמצע השבוע על
