i love nest

I've been meaning to remind you about nest.  I love this.  I really, really do.  Knitting for others that are in need is such a great thing.  I knit a bunch of fingerless mitts last year.  I had declared last July my "knitting for others" month.  This July I was pretty much a selfish knitter, knitting only for myself.  But I plan on changing that.  Really, I do.  I want to make hats soon... and into August.  Hats for nest.  
I've packed some yarn to do just that.  Because tomorrow we are flying the coup.  Hopefully I will finish my empire waist cardigan, and perhaps get a photo of it in front of a Lake.  
Be well, friends.

very cool:) sounds like a great organization. Have a great time!

nicole said...

What a lovely idea, to pick a time of the year to knit for others. I might just do the same.

Have a lovely vacation. I'm hitting the road too. Hope the weather cooperates!

Jessica said...

Have a great trip---vacation knitting is always fun, especially when it is for others. I have yarn ready to go for nest as well!

lucky knitter said...

Have a wonderful vacation, and thanks for the great link!

MadMad said...

Have a wonderful trip, Leslie! Can't wait to see all your gorgeous pictures!

Maryse said...

I joined a group similar to Nest this summer, but haven't attended a meeting yet. The other day, I bought some yarn for Fetching (one pair for the organism and one for me). It should be fun!

MamaLizKnits said...

Oh wow thanks for posting this, Leslie. I'd love to contribute to Nest and spread the word. Bonus: I live in Maine so it's wonderful to be able to help out other Mainers.

Unselfish knitting is such a gift to give, lovely, just lovely!
Have a wonderful vacation- try not to think of me, stuck here, too much... ha! just kidding, but I'll try not to think of you vacationing too much (thinking too much, not vacationing too much, hehe) at least, not in that envious and discontent with my current status kind of way! Home is good too, and someday I may get to live on a lake, after all, there are over 10,000 of them here... :-D
Have a blast, it sounds fabulous! Enjoy every last bit of this summer, creating wonderful memories!

Happy knitting-
ali

Thanks for letting me know about Nest! And this Leslie is at a lake too! :) Have fun!

have a great vacation.

Knitting unselfishly (at least sometimes) feels great! Nest is a great idea :)

I hope that you have a great weekend!

kim said...

Okay, now I feel really dumb. When I saw this picture on Flickr, I really thought is was about nests. I think I said, "Oh, so do I..." or something else equally stupid... This is so great. Have a fun weekend!

Full of Heart said...

Ah, Lake Tahoe is the best! Have a good trip!

Hilary said...

I hadn't heard of Nest before -- what a wonderful project! I would love to send some knits their way. Thank you so much for the link.

Have fun on your vacation! The Empire Waist Cardi is looking very cool (what a neat construction!).

iknitipurl said...

Have room for one more? My vacation starts tomorrow, when my son goes to camp for 12 days! Wish I was going to Lake Tahoe though! Have a great vacation.

elizabeth said...

Thanks for the link to Nest. I have knit some items for charity, with no charity in mind. They sit in a drawer, but now have a home. I live at the Lake you are off to visit. The weather is great...though a little hot at the moment. No yarn store in Tahoe City, but a cute one in Truckee. (I'm hoping you're visiting the lovely North Shore, and not the busy South) Have a great trip.

APA said...

I'm so looking forward to more fab photos from your vacation. A safe journey to all of you and a time of moments, big and small.

At Home Mommy Knits said...

I live close to Tahoe and take the kids there at least once a week to play. I hope your family has a wonderful trip!

I'll have to dig through my stash. It's so odd to look at a blog like that and be able to visualize the location. Makes me miss Maine.

韓國人由於亞歷安人種臉型較為四方於是整形業在當地非常的發達舉凡像雷射溶脂的技術就蠻進步的僅次於全世界最強的台灣而以整形和他們的娛樂業有著密不可分的關系像一些著加的明星都吃酵素在保養身體以達到良好的水準黃金價格不斷的上揚可能快破100美元每兩了
引述報導目前在台灣的外籍新娘總數已經突破5萬大關了也,這其中大部份的人都有失眠的問題可能是經濟情況較差要努力工作飛梭雷射可以讓皮膚不好的小姐到很好的改善酵素是一種好玩的東西,香香口味不錯的蠻好吃的終身醫療可以保讓你我的健康得到較好的保障喔
網路新聞任意跟蹤他人的行蹤,也有妨害秘密的問題!新竹市42歲徵信業者雖然受陳姓被害人妻子委託調查陳行蹤徵信但因私自偷偷在陳的重型機車上裝GPS衛星追蹤器雖沒錄音錄影但一樣被認定有罪徵信新竹地院表示徵信業者受人妻之託調查必須要用合法的方式徵信辦檢察官也說一般人若非公眾人物走在大馬路上網站排名因享有隱私權不能被當作是公開活動而被人任意用GPS追蹤
