They have row counters for people like me!

You are interchangeable. Fun, free, and into
everything, you've got every eventuality
covered and every opportunity just has
to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and
every day is a new beginning. You are good at
so many things, it's amazing, but you can
easily lose your place and forget to show up.
They have row counters for people like you!

What kind of knitting needles are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Oh, this is so true! (lol) I visited Hazelnut Latte's journal and saw she had her quiz results posted and couldn't resist seeing what my results would be.  It turns out we're the same type of knitting needles hanging on the display rack!  (well, actually based from her journal posts she's using hers!  Mine are apparently still in the packaging!  lol)  Now, the real question is, what type of crochet hook am I?  Hmmm. I wonder if such a quiz exists...

Getting back on topic, I wrote that the answer from the quiz is so right in describing me!  I do tend to be involved, and yet easily lose my place.  But, in all fairness, I do have two youngsters who HELP me lose my place! (lol)

Take this past Wednesday for example ... I was to attend the Connecticut session of "Coffee,Crochet and Chat" at one of our local book stores.  I was all set to go. I was in the process of dropping the kiddies off at school when my dear daughter discovered she left her book bag and lunch at home.   This meant I had to DRIVE all the way back home, then back to the school again.   I was also soaked by the heavy rains and had to tend to that too.  By the time I realized it, I had "lost my place" and missed out on the crochet session. (bummer!)

Would the row counters help in this situation?  It's doubtful. But since I was at the bookstore already, I decided to check out the new magazine published by Vogue Knitting called Knit 1.

It just came out in November and is getting rave reviews!  I liked what I saw and decided to treat myself to an issue.  Inside, I saw a VERY pretty beaded bracelet being advertised that can be used as a row counter... and, BTW, if you're interested in knowing if it contains any crochet patterns, you'd be happy to learn that this trendy magazine does!  The bracelet may not help keep me on track, or encourage me to get those knitting needles out of their packaging, but it would be pretty to wear!  <<giggles>>

And speaking of being trendy ... we all know that crochet is, but now designers are REALLY starting to catch on.  Be sure to check out the fashions at  AND be prepared to have your crocheted socks knocked off! J
