BMFA has brought back Chapman Springs colorway. This is probably my favorite colorway of all from Blue Moon. I ordered a skein of lightweight and Silky. Also ordered 2 skeins of Thraven to make a shawl. I don't know what I am going to use the skeins of Chapman for but I am sure I am going to save them for a while cause I want to make sure they are used for the perfect project.


Been working on getting the order together.

yarn and knitting update

Big update.
New tat, pincushion.

Small tile first sock done. Using short row heel and rounded toe. From the book more sensational knitted socks. This book is such a great resource.

Some hand dyed yarn. Working with new technique of dying.

Some new Araucania Ranco Multy from The Loopy Ewe.

Malabrigo lace weight also from The Loopy Ewe. I am so into doing a shawl. Well, I want to do a lot of shawl. I signed up for the Mystic Light KAL. I have queued several shawls on Ravely. And I have been looking at my sock yarn in a new way.

Scarf made of Araucania Nature Wool.

So I have been doing a lot of updating on Ravelry and flickr.

Rain. I love Rain.

It is good to live in Florida if only because of the long nights and days of rain. I do love it when it rains. I don't like lightning, but rain, yes. So, what to do while listening to the drops on the leaves? Dye yarn. Sleep. Knit. Read.

I am getting a new tattoo tomorrow. It is represent my crafty side. It is going to a small one. I am saving some of my prime skin areas for my big ideas. I am going to put it on the back of my calf. The other calf is for one of my bigger ideas.

Things are Good

I have sold a total of 3 skeins of yarn. This is so exciting. Not only does it allow me to buy more supplies, but it allows me to buy from other etsy sellers. This is a very exciting thing. I want to buy from others like me putting myself out there for others to judge. I also want to buck back at the corporate America that is taking over a lot of our lives. I am not actually going to sign up, but I am going to make it a point to hand make all my gifts or buy hand made gifts from others. So, what did I get from another etsy seller. Ear plugs. Red ear plugs. Hand made glass from azhotshop
