Entry for October 15, 2006

On this day in history 1917-- Mata Hari is executed by the French. It is uncertain if she actually was a double agent during WWI. A good article is at http://www.firstworldwar.com/bio/matahari.htm --a page of First War . com. Another article may be found at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/venona/dece_hari.html a PBS webpage.

Today I took advantage of a great yarn sale at Michaels and also attended a demonstration of the Knifty Knitter while there. There I learned how to use the long purple knitting board. I have one but haven't been able to successfully cast on with it. Now I think I have it figured out. Knifty Knitters are really great. Within a short period of time the knitter can turn out a hat probably in less than an hour if I remember correctly. Knifty Knitters are looms that are sold in kits. If you enjoy working with yarn and want a project to finish quickly then this could be the way to go. There are some free patterns available on the Internet and several groups on Yahoo. Give it a try! Here are a few links--

Go to your favorite search engine and search for knifty knitter patterns and you should be able to come up with more. Good luck!
