Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back

So I finished the Cobijita Floresita blanket. After knitting 13 petals for a 10-petal flower. I discovered after the seventh petal that I’d mis-counted the rows on three of them. Riiiip, and re-crochet. But now it’s done. This is how it looks blocking.

Please Take Some of this Yarn Off My Hands

June 27th, 2008 | 1 Comment

Let’s face it, I have no use for bulky wool in Texas. So I beg of y’all who have actual winters to please take some of it off my hands. Along with some orphan yarn and yarn that I’m just tired of looking at. All yarn has been stored in drawers or plastic ziploc bags in a smoke-free, pet-free home.

If you’re interested in any of the yarn listed below or if you have any questions, please send me an e-mail. Prices listed are in USD and include first-class shipping to the contiguous 48 states.

Handpainted Yarn in Stone Blue

Bulky Wool, Handpainted
100% wool
Bulky, thick/thin single
$15 for the lot

Part of one hank was swatched and ripped out. Others have never been knit.

There’s over 230g here, probably around 340 yards.

I am Starting to Understand Why People Stash Yarn

April 11th, 2008 | 1 Comment

I literally have nothing on the needles right now. Ok, not quite literally, as I have about four rows of a tiny tube knit up after I got it into my head that I was going to design a sock. And then I quit. But beyond that, nothing. Not so much as a baby hat.

I have a couple of toys on hooks, one of which you saw here, but that’s it.

And it occurred to me the other day that I’m just uninspired. The projects out there are plenty inspiring. But the yarn I own…meh.
