My Pinky Protector

Believe it or not........this inexpensive little item works pretty good. I just rub some on the area of my pinky that the yarn irritates and wa la Pretty neat huh??

Hey! It works for me.

Pinky Protector

Now what in the world would I want with a piece of rubber hose.

Well, I am a KNITTER. And when I knit my tensioned yarn is around my pinky no matter how I try to wrap. I have been getting a groove in that little pinky. So DH and I are going to try to make a pinky protector.

The inside of the hose is circumference in 5/8 inches and it fits my pinky quite comfortably. The outside circumference of my pinky is 7/8 inches.

Will continue to post the progress as it is done. DH has some ideas. I hope they work.
Update: Nah.......this won't work either. Now the right tools and then hose isn't as comfortable as I thought it would be.
To keep on pluggin' away.

Doesn't Help the Pinky

I have been looking for something to put around the bottom of my pinky so my yarn doesn't put a groove in my skin. This was suggested but as you can see, it doesn't quite do the job. So I continue in my quest.

My Newest Project

Kelly's sweater.......This is a very easy pattern. This set is going to Southside Hospital........ NY.........I am making more and using Bernat baby jacquards............It is a wonderful yarn for babies............Hope to be able to place more Pictures here soon.

Yes it has been quite awhile since I posted....

We are now retired and living in AL.........I love having the time to craft...........but the major thing on my list is to lose weight and I am on my way to doing that. I use the treadmill 5 days a week and have changed my diet..............No I am not dieting......just changing my lifestyle to include exercise and healthy eating.........
