What do you mean "A title" ?

I have a cool picture, but I can't show you yet, because I sent it out for a surprise to someone and when she gets it, I'll show it off. :)

So, you get to see this:

What Your Favorite Color Orange Says About You:

Joyful --- Enthusiastic --- Optimistic
Outgoing --- Accepting --- Confident
Loud --- Unruly --- Impulsive
Fun, huh? Also here is a true knitting story that really happened to me.
I was sitting at the computer knitting socks and reading blogs, and my size one bamboo dpn went flying. My Hubby and I were crawling around looking for it and I said "I found it!" and grabbed a toothpick up off the floor. I really thought it was my needle. They are about the same size, except for length. I don't know why there was a toothpick on the floor, though. LOL
I remembered this as I was struggling to knit with size 13 needles (broomsticks). I'm used to size 1 or size 2 needles, but I found some ribbon yarn on sale and I'm doing some super quick scarves for a charity. :)
I will be away from computers for about a week or so. I have stuff to do, but then I'll have lots to show y'all when I get back. Talk at ya again soon ~ maybe the 29th? We'll see!!

Too funny about the toothpick! Before I got addicted to sock knitting, I always referred to it as knitting with dental floss on tooth picks!

I'll miss you while you're away. I hope you'll be busy with fun stuff!

I'm having that same problem myself--I'm not comfortable using even 11's anymore and that's what I had to use for my so-called scarf! Scary that we're used to such little needles now!

I know what you mean about the tree trunk needles. Ever since I started knitting (a lot of) socks, I have had real trouble when I go back to ribbon yarn and bigger needles--I swear they slow me down, which makes them not all that quicker than small needles, for me!

So funny - the toothpick = needle. I know what you mean though, these #15's are a horror to use. Have a nice break!
