Needle Notes

Rhinebeck Sweater based on Elizabeth Zimmermann Percentage System from Knitting without Tears and Knitting Workshop.

Episodes 225 and 226 have more details.

Quince & Co Chickadee colors—there is orange (Poppy)! Ridges of garter stitch add interest. The more colors you use the more you can get away with!

·        Divided box from Harry and David (pears)

·        Smaller size on yoke. Went down a needle size in addition to fewer stitches.

·        Button band and neck band. Steeked the sweater and then knit front bands—was too long. Talked with Angie/Silverbell and decided to go down 3 needle sizes. Love this tighter gauge on the band!

·        Used short rows on neck back so it tapers from front to back.

Peerie Weerie Booties by Carrie Bostick Hoge

Fair Isle Style by Mary Jane Mucklestone

December Booties by Carrie Bostick Hoge (Quince & Co Lark)

Added some length to the foot so should fit 6 mo to 1 year. Did not do as much color work because it is less stretchy.

Reading other people's notes it seems these might not be the most practical booties but they sure are quick to knit and the cuteness factor is over the top.

I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
