We had a beautiful weekend up here in the Rockies. Lots of snow for you skiers! There is more snow expected this evening and I am supposed to have jury duty tomorrow so I hope I can get out of my neighborhood to do my civic duty. The husband is working from home today and all is cozy in the cabin. We just need to start a fire in the fireplace and all would be perfect.
I have been inspired by Theresa’s determination to go into 2008 with a clean slate and have been rummaging through baskets to see what unfinished projects I have left on the needles. Like many of you, I have decided to frog the ones that I no longer have inspiration to finish. As I have done so, I’ve sensed a knitters kind of euphoria – LOL. I have far more projects on the needles than I want to confess but I have resolved to do better next year! Right now it is looking like I will be carrying five sweaters into the New Year and one pair of fair isle mittens. Those projects will go on my NEXT Top 10 Stash Buster list!
With all this winding of frogged projects into tidy skeins I have realized that my Royal Ball Winder is by far my favorite knitting notion! Some of you are doing some Christmas shopping for your favorite knitters right now. For those still wondering what knitting notions every knitter wants, in my humble opinion it would be a Royal Ball Winder. My runner up is the KnitPicks Chart Keeper which can travel with me everywhere.
But I am curious about what YOU think every knitter should have. If you could only pick ONE notion that you just could not live without, what would it be? Inquiring minds want to know! And, maybe there is something I need to tell Santa that I just can’t live without.
