After my well received "F is for friendship" post I was kinda at a loss for a suitable "G is for......"
So I bring you some of the various and sundry G's in the life of this Fluffy Knitter....
First I bring you the humble Gecko.
These creatures are a part of life in Florida, both inside and out!
When I walk outside I often see as many as ten scurry in all directions at my approach and I know spring is on it's way when all the tiny baby geckos make their first appearance.
Altho few Floridians actually keep Geckos as pets, few would complain to have a Gecko house guest because they eat all the unwanted house creepies, especially ants and cockroaches! YUCK!!
A unique feature of the Gecko is that they have a regenerating tail! When
I am sure my love for the G that is Green is no secret! My blog is green, my pics all have green backgrounds (green towels, blankets, green couch, ect.) but unfortunately there is no wearing of the green because it makes me look like death! So I live Green vicariously thru my knitting. To wit, another sock steps into the spotlight....and it's the G that is Green!
This is some GGH Marathon Sock yarn that's been marinating in the stash for a while. I love the marled green goodness and this workhorse of a sock is yet another installment of my evil plan to inundate a certain cold footed New Yorker with so many hand knits he just HAS to wear em! Muahahahaha....
Now the best G of all is for GOOD NEWS!!
In previous posts and tutorials I've shown off my glamorous darning egg but alas after many moves, computer crashes and fruitless google searches the artist who wrought my lovely knitting accoutrement was lost. The GOOD NEWS is he's been found!!
One of my readers, Melissa of TiaKnits, was a woman with a mission and a sister named Kelli who's a computer genius as well as a crackerjack knitter! And Kelli found our man!!! YAY Kelli!
Phil of Custom Wood Designs is my long lost artiste!
I've been in contact with Phil and he is still making stunningly beautiful fiber related tools such as Niddy Noddies, Nostipines and DARNING EGGS out of gorgeous exotic woods. Phil plans to update his site but if you contact him, he will fashion whatever tool you fancy in any of a bevy of lovely exotic woods!
Go pay Phil a visit and see what goodies he has!
Thanks again for your persistence and genius Melissa and Kelli!
My closing G is of course, my Gorgeous P-Man who's busy getting his nap on!
