K is for Knit

Really what else could K be for?

I've been knitting since I learned in the summer of 2003. It's been a great way to pass time as I sit and watch TV, or stand in line or am a passenger while Dave's driving.

It's been my sanity when my life gets crazy and my insanity when the yarn or pattern goes nuts. I've met many new people both in knitting groups and online.

It's occupied countless hours of mindwracking fun to try and figure out... everything. I've read books on knitting. Taken classes about knitting. Met Knitting Royalty.

We are flying away to our vacation tomorrow. If anything should happen to me, here's how I want my yarn divvied up:

Lisa Litton of Tucson, AZ gets first dibs as she is the goddess who taught me how to knit. Rachel H. gets next go at it. Then, if someone would be so kind as to put the rest on a destash site for $5 a skein/needles/notions/etc. and put the proceeds to:
50% to my family, 25% to Hiefer International and 25% to The House That Yarn Built

Whoever takes on the monumental task of putting the destash sale together gets to go through and pick what they want first.

We'll be gone from Sunday - Thursday, so my next post should be next Friday.

Going off grid, Ruth!

OMG- Nothing is going to happen! But it is funny that you write that. I have wondered what Brian would do with all my yarn if I croaked. I don't think he nows what it's worth. I love the $5 a skein plan.

Have a great (and safe) plan!
