Funky cushion cover and the secret
Thanks for all your Birthday and get well wishes. I am better.
It's turning chilly here. A cold and frosty morning today, but a lovely bright day after that.
I had lots of left over novelty yarn from my scarf making days and I decided to knit some cushion covers. The back is black and this is the front. I used a mixture of 8ply and novelty yarns for the front and a strand each of black 8ply acrylic and 8ply "feather" type yarn knitted together for the back. I used size 9mm needles and 32 stitches. I will make some plain black covers and another couple of striped covers. I like to change my cushion covers each winter. These feel nice and cosy and they are a quick project.
"the Secret" by Rhonda Byrne
I bought the book "the Secret" this week. I actually really enjoyed it. I originally wanted to read it to find out what all the "hype" was about.I haven't seen the film. I really think it did me more good than harm. I always try to think positively about things and tend to have a few "moments" where I wish for things to happen and they actually do. I also tend to believe that to a certain extent we make our own luck in life. Maybe I already knew "the secret" and didn't realise it!!??
