Hooray, hooray! Look what I just got from Melissa Moustacherides! I don’t know how I could possibly match something this fabulous! I’ve already spun up the batts. I’m going to spin up some Peace Fleece roving–a little too lumpy by itself, but I think it’ll be fabulous plied with this crazy yarn, and that’ll tie […]

Rage averted

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I was all in a huff about getting a 1 rating and a complaint of no delivery for a swap I sent a month ago, and for which delivery confirmation showed December 28 delivery. But I contacted the swapee & apparently she just got confused and gave the no-show rating to the wrong person & […]

Look how cute!

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

An egg in a beret?–jar with a gasketed lid that will be home to something delicious, three spool of printed ribbon, 2 darling little […]

FO Pair of potholders (and not a moment too soon!)

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Finished the potholders for my potholder & recipe swap! They’re drying on the fabulous new blocking board my mommy gave me for Christmas. The deadline is tomorrow, so I’m just in the nick of time. I still need to photograph the potholders I received, which arrived a week ago. One has a basketweave pattern and […]

I started a knitalong! Wheeee!

Monday, January 8th, 2007

I started a We Call Them Pirates knitalong, which could easily also be considered a Day of the Dead knitalong (thanks, Suzanne!). I’ve been wanting to make Adrian’s brilliant hat forever, but the stranded colorwork was so daunting. So I thought a knitalong would get me all revved up. Yay! I’ve been trying to figure […]

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

Here’s my swap gift, ready to go (except I added some tea, postcards, a magnet & Pocky). I wanted to send it today, but couldn’t reach Swap-bot to find the address, so I’ll have to bring it with me to Texas. There’s dyed Rambouillet roving, undyed wool and nylon blend sock yarn roving, a DH […]

Mug of Yarn Swap!

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

My Mug of Yarn swap arrived a few days ago, and I finally got a chance to photograph it! There’s a “too much coffee” mug, a giant, super light and soft skein of kettle-dyed merino, some girly tissues, and a great vintage knitting book from Australia. My incoming partner was a man, and he was very […]

Sock reunion!

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006

Let’s hear it for small town living! Our fabulous postmaster Chris tracked down my missing sock for me. Can you believe it? It fell out of the package and got stranded at the sorting center, and they sent it on to me today. Hooray! I’m well pleased it with–the stripes are slightly different, which is […]
