Holding Stitches

I picked up a fun new product from Cocoknits at the show.

Use the Stitch Holder Kit in lieu of scrap yarn whenever you need to hold live stitches. The threaded needles allow you to knit off of your leather cord. 
The Leather Cord and Needle Stitch Holder Kit contains: 
•two interior-threaded needles made of nickel plated steel 
•three lengths of leather cord 
•one long – for holding sts of sweater body (59"/150 cm) 
•two short – for holding sts of sleeves (29.5"/75 cm) 
Keep the contents of your kit in the reusable kraft drawer, lined with 100% wool felt.  Please note you may need to snip the end of your leather cord at an angle to facilitate attaching the needle.

The book is beautiful.

The great thing about the book is that you have a download code. The book will download in your Ravelry library and you can print off individual patterns. No carrying around a book. No marking your book.

My Starting Point has been put on the back burner while I've been knitting with Adelaide. All the clues are available and the finished shawl looks great. Take a look on Ravelry at some of the projects - I'm inspired to finish mine now.

Someone is tired. She had a hard day at work. Dad took Lucy to his job meeting in Peterborough. While he was in the meeting, one of the guys took Lucy for a walk and she ended up in the lake. If there is water, she will find it.
