AnnMarie rules . . .


Okay, how tired are you of hearing about my afghan? Then close your ears. AnnMarie, who wandered over here from Kari's blog, mentioned something in the comment section a couple blanket posts ago. I was struggling with the 100% cotton yarn unwinding with every loop I made. It was really frustrating this beginner. I was snagging pieces with almost every stitch. That's where wise, bright, awesome, and fabulous AnnMarie comes in. She informed me that if I was using the yarn from the outside of the ball it was the "wrong" way and it may unravel. I started a new ball today and fished and fished for the inside end. I could never find it before but I was determined this time. I prevailed and it is TOTALLY easier because it does not unravel. Yay!

I never would have known that, but I don't knit. You are doing a wonderful job though, very pretty.
I came upon your blog via your mentioning being a Buffy fan on your profile by the way.

Welcome! We are HUGE Buffy fans! I even own several action figures that are unopened. I am such a Joss Whedon Geek!

Do you like Serenity?

I saw by your profile that you also like The Patriot. One of my all time favorites!

Stop on back . . .

I didn't know that! I usually roll mine into balls.

I hate, hate, hate it when I'm working straight from a skein and find half way through that they've knotted it in several places. UGH!
That's why I make them into balls first. lol

Hi Sheri: I just accidentally stumbled on your site, and with the last name of "Sherfick", thought momentarily I had found a distant relative. Guess not, but very nice site anyway!
