OOOOH new yarn

Red Heart yarns, well known for the plastic yarn called Super Saver has released new yarns that are so much fun to use.
The yarns have different colors and/or textures in one skein.

Watch this video to see the yarn named "changes".
I made scarves with "cream" and "aquamarine" and really like the way they look.

AQUAMARINE not the true colors due to the flash
The pattern by Veronica O'Neill is called Magz Bias Scarf and works really well with this yarn. A long, slinky scarf worn in many different ways.

Boye Needlemaster needles made into fixed circular needles

I have had this Boye Needlemaster set forever! Well at least for a really long time and it was always a pain to keep the needles attached to the cables no matter how much hubby tightened them.

After seeing this blog I decided it was time for hubby to make needles I could use and LIKE.

We ordered the ridged tubing from amazon and he found everything else at the hardware store. It was not an easy job for him and he has very strong hands (auto mechanic for 40 years) and questioned that a woman could do the job.

The cable lengths are around 40" because I wanted to be able to use them for two socks at a time (Yeah right!) Some day ~ maybe LOL

Life is good!

Our plan to visit the Pacific Ocean at least once a month is coming true.

We had a "Living Social" coupon for "The Beach House" and had a delicious lunch on the upstairs balcony and then a walk on the beach.
