Some of you may have noticed the lack of posting here at Adriana's Thread. Believe me, that was not due to lack of knitting activity. A little while ago socksforphlox and I decided we wanted to make a joint blog. It took a little while to get our act together during which time I felt uninspired to blog. But this evening we created the inaugural post to our new blog! (hopefully between the two of us we'll manage to keep this baby updated on a regular basis)

So, without further ado, come one and all to: Friends Knit Together

Christmas presents with my family have been getting increasingly practical. Every year my mom screams “I don’t want any more STUFF!” I always endeavor to give useful gifts to my family, and with knitting that has become easier.  
Things get harder with my presents. I just want knitting related things, and my family is happy to encourage my addiction. However I like to be surprised so the best way to do that is to make up a long list of things I’d like and let my parents pick from it. I’m having trouble with the list this year. I’ve got some books on an Amazon wish list but I’d like to make a yarn wish list. This is what I’ve come up with so far: 1 ball of Rowan Cashsoft DK to make Odessa., KP KIP bag (medium), STR.
I clearly need more if I’m going to stand a chance of being surprised, plus these are all things I might get for myself. I’d like to put things on my list that I wouldn’t get for myself but I’m drawing a blank.
What would you get if you didn’t need to worry about money?

Yay!  
I just gave my pregnant co-worker booties that I made for her. She was so happy! I'm on such a high right now. I LOVE knitting for people who appreciate it :D

The new Interweave Knits preview is up here. What do we think? Nothing really thrills me. I think that if I did not have a subscription I probably wouldn't get this issue. In fact, Heather, if I still am not in love with any of the patterns when it comes then you can take it off my hands.

You know you have a lot of yarn when.....

You find a ball next to your bed and you have no idea how it got there.

So this weekend I went to visit Heather and Jonathan who were just in town for a couple of days and staying with Jonathan’s family. I guess they had told his mom that I was a knitter because when I arrived she handed me a shawl and told me that it was knit by Stephanie Purl-McPhee. I was confused; I assumed she meant it was from a pattern by the Yarn Harlot. But when I asked, Nancy (Jonathan’s mom) said no, it was actually knit by her. Yes, that is right. My friend’s mom is friends with the YARN HARLOT!!! Apparently they both lived in Brampton at the same time and were leaders in La Leche. Nancy went on to say that Stephanie and her daughters had surprised her for her 50s birthday recently. I got to sit in the same chair as the Yarn Harlot had and fondle the shawl made by her. So very very cool! I was giddy for the rest of the day :)
