Life is Swirling Around Me

After a year of planning the big wedding day is almost here! I can't believe that in two weeks it will just be wonderful memories. We are driving "the dress" down to make sure it gets there, so there will be lots of knitting time in the car. I thought it was only fitting that I start knitting "The Swirl Shawl" to mimic my life right now. I bought some Pagewood Farms hand dyed sock yarn and some beautiful new doublepointed needles with the greatest points on them. There are several times you have to knit three together, and I go crazy if I don't have a good point. I love these needles by Darn Pretty Needles even though they were a bit expensive ($30),they sure have made me a happy camper. My other toy for this project was a Fibersphere. So far I am loving this gadget too and it will be great for keeping my yarn clean in the car. So, the dress is ready, all plans are in order and I have my knitting and quilting projects ready for the car. Swirl on! Life is good.
