Happy Colorful New Year!

kauni Anyone who has visited a LYS with me in the past year will probably mention that I have been eyeing the rainbow yarns. Mini mochi, mochi plus, kauni effetkgarn, evilla. I never had a project for them though, nothing that required long runs of rainbow colored yarn, so I was able to resist. Until […]

Sucker

trekking The other day I wandered into the local craft store to pick up some yarn for a gift. I happened across this Trekking XXL colorway that I have picked up … oh, every time I have been to this store in almost two years. 25% off? OK then. Nevermind that whole “I am not […]

morning glazed carrots

A REALLY crappy photo (the camera fell and uh, partially broke last week plus it’s not even light outside yet), but: mmmmmalabrigo Doesn’t everyone get up and wind (tangled freaking hanks of) yarn at 6am?

New Lust

Dreaming of the Stash

Almost a year ago, I cleared out and packed up the stash to prepare for our cross-country move. I got rid of about a third of the yarn or so, I’d guess. Since December, the remainder has been in storage. I’ve worked from yarn I moved with me, yarn I bought from E’s stash (PokingMyEyesOut), […]

One of my largest goals was to sort the yarn and fiber stash into these three groups. Of course I need car projects for a cross-country drive as well as […]

Maryland 2008

Whew! Maryland this year was a bit different for me. My first year (2005) I spent so much money on fiber and yarn — and I picked out a wheel! I still have some things from that year in stash. Last year (2007) was my second year, and I was a bit more subdued, but […]

Fiery Socks

It’s a bit coincidental that I have two socks (well, three, but two are the same) on the needles right now that fit right in with the current Project Spectrum theme of Fire (red, orange, pink). First, we have the mate to my fourth self-knit sock ever! ellen’s 1/2 pint farm, not sure of colorway […]
