3 swatches knit

I have the first 3 swatches knit up and blocking for Level 1 of the Master Knitter program. They look good to me. I will take them to my knitting group and let them critique them. I am trying for perfection, which is not my nature!

On a non-knitting note....

I found a website online that sells all kinds of labels for your printing needs. Planet Label. If you make a lot of address labels, biz cards, greeting cards, or other crafts, take a look. I found some sheets of magnetic for business cards. What a neat idea to give your customers or business aquaintances.

They have inkjet, laser, thermal, magnetic, brown kraft, cardstock and so much more. Pre-printed, weatherproof, non-adhesive, foil, etc. Even a closeout page!

Got my Master Knitter stuff

I got my Master Knitter paperwork today and went to Iris Fine Yarns store to get my swatch yarn. I got 3 skeins latte' colored (#138)Galway. That should be enough for all the swatches.

I got my notebook all organized, too. I had a great find at a rummage sale one day.. a box full of office supplies for $1.00 and there must have been 300 sheet protectors in the bottom so can have all my paperwork in sheets.. :-)
I have a headache so I am not going to start knitting today. Want those swatches perfect.

Master Knitter course

Well, I took the plunge. I sent in my application and fees for the TKGA Master Knitter program! My dear sweet husband gave me this as a present for our 29th wedding anniversary. Isn't he a sweetie? There are quite a few in my Tuesday night knitting group that are also going to be doing the program so we have a built in support group. I have been knitting for 40 years and knowledge is always good.

I just joined Shaklee .
I loved their products in the 80's and kinda forgot about them until recently. I knew I needed to do something about my weight after injuring an ankle and a knee and found that Shaklee has a great program called Cinch. I am on day 4 and all is going very well. They have a great business opportunity if you are looking for something to do from home.
Oprah even featured Shaklee's Get Clean on Earth Day! I am happy to be with a proven company!
