Bits and Pieces

Early this morning I blocked two cloths for samples for the class I'm teaching tomorrow.

The white one is made with DMC Perle Cotton (size 5) on size 2 double pointed needles. It's about 10" in diameter blocked. I could have stretched it a bit more.

The pink one is Euroflax linen. Also on size 2 needles. It is stretched pretty much to the max and is about 12" in diameter.

The Stove Saga...

Here is our new "COILED" stove. I'm liking the coils. Everything heats up so much faster! And now I've got a window on the oven door too. Whoo Hoo!

And we've made two boards to go over the burners when they aren't in use. So technically it is a smooth top most of the time. I love the boards! I can take just one off or both depending on how many burners I need.

I wish you enthusiastic students in your class!

The boards covering the stove look great! Who can't use more counterspace?
