Implosion

(I think we will reach 2,000 comments this week!? Remember that the lucky poster of the 2,000th comment will win a gift certificate, or if you missed the details, see the bottom of this post.)

I have been quite delinquent on showing some of the nice yarns added to my stash during the past few months. [...]

Behind and Behinder

Ahoy, me hearties! I was out of town last week, and intended to have several posts scheduled and ready to go. Unfortunately, I ran out of time before departing and forgot to upload the needed pictures.

Below is a mini-catchup, and tomorrow, you’ll find out where I traveled!

BookMate Update

Some of you will recall I posted reviews [...]

Red Socks

(Quick note: I will be upgrading Wordpress and doing various clean-up/catch-up tasks here on this blog during the next few days. If this post or the site doesn’t load, you’ll know why. Thanks!)

Teeny Socks

Seaming work on the Cropped Cardigan continues, but I’ve been taking breaks from it to work on some stash-busting projects. I’ve also been motivated to finally attach buttons to my Rock ‘n Weave socks from last year.

Yes, it’s a zoo

In more ways than one… I’ve neglected much of my holiday preparation except knitting. Today, I will have to start focusing on gift wrapping, addressing cards (late!) and helping Mom decorate the tree.

Chris mentioned that I was knitting a zoo. How very true. Another way to look at it is as a Noah’s Ark, [...]

Gusto!

Today’s post title comes from a comment left by Guinifer last week. It’s a great word; I don’t think I have ever used it in an actual conversation. But it certainly applies here.

My yarn-buying binge did not stop at the 3 Kittens sale. Did you notice (perhaps with surprise) that I didn’t buy any [...]

Sock Yarn Love

I really do like sock yarn! They’re so colorful and fun to look at. Plus, you usually only need 1-2 skeins and that’s not as expensive as buying yarn for larger projects. Before I put myself on a yarn diet, I had acquired some fun and varied sock yarns. (Hey! Today, it’ll have been [...]
