Year of Natural Fibers

The United Nations General Assembly appointed 2009 as the International Year of Natural Fibres. They probably did this a while ago and I’ve just been living under a rock. I am totally in support of anything that emphasizes natural fibers. I mean, come on, which is cuter: or Exactly. BUT […]

In Memoriam

Over here in the States, today is the day that we remember and support the men and women of the Armed Forces who have given their lives and who continue to risk their lives to protect the values that we as a society hold dear. I am grateful to my […]

Something about a shawl?

There was something that people wanted me to talk about? A scarf? A shawl? Oh right, the shawl I knit for my friend’s wedding. This one, right? The gory details for anyone who wants to skip the actual discussion: Pattern: Nikol Lohr’s Woodland Shawl Yarn: 696 yards (3 balls) of […]

Very soon, the Shawl Post

Soon, very, very soon, I will be posting about the Wedding Shawl. But first, I’m going to show off my new yarns. This skein and the next two yarns in the photos are payment yarn for a project I worked on a little while ago. That beauty up there is […]

Last minute

I leave tomorrow morning for Colorado, and I am so excited. I get to see a couple of friends that I don’t see regularly (you know, that whole “they live in Colorado” thing), I get to see mountains (seriously, the flatness of Florida is underwhelming), and I have an opportunity […]

What to do, what to do?

I have finished Chrysta’s Wedding Shawl. Sorry, no pictures until after the wedding, as I want Chrysta herself to see the full, finished product before anyone else, but I’m excited to have finished it. More details about the shawl when I post the final pictures. Finishing the shawl was like […]

The generosity of others

People can be incredibly awesome. I am quite frequently blown away by how awesome people can be. Take Preita for example. She recently celebrated her blogiversary, and in a truly Hobbit-like fashion decided to have a giveaway contest to celebrate. My number was drawn, which was a welcome change, as […]

I do like a challenge

A dear friend of mine is getting married in just two and a half weeks, and I am incredibly excited to be able to attend (wedding is in Colorado, I am in Florida, this is going to be the wedding for which I have traveled the farthest, and only the […]

A status report

I’ve finished a few projects and started a couple of others, so I figured I’d share. I gave into my impulse and bought some of the Limited Edition Lorna’s Laces colorway from Jimmy Beans Wool. The color for April was Robin’s Nest, and it was just so pretty. My Hedera […]

I love swaps

Swaps are great. They encourage getting to know new people, as well as accumulating karmic participation points. You get to buy stuff, guilt-free, because it’s for someone else, and then, you get stuff and it’s guilt-free too, because you didn’t buy it. Really, swaps are great. And they’re especially great […]
