My neighbors probably think I’m spying on them. Remember, I’m the weird lady out taking photos of yarn in her pajamas every so often? The scoop is that since I put out bird feeders a few weeks ago, we have a lot of wildlife activity in the yard, mostly squirrels, birds and now, bunnies and in my quest to declutter, go through, donate or throw out, I found a pair of binoculars and that’s what’s been happening the past few days. Honest, mister, I’m really not interested in what goes on across the fence. I just want to see the birds and bunnies.
I’M SO EXCITED!
I can’t wait until Saturday – Stephanie Pearl-McPhee aka as the Yarn Harlot, is coming to Arkansas to speak at the Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza. I’ve been an admirer of hers since I started knitting. The Extravaganza is being held at the Lodge at Mt. Magazine, one of the most beautiful spots in Arkansas. I was there a few years ago for the very first knitting get together and always wanted to go back, if not for a weekend, just for a day.
OFF THE NEEDLES
Last weekend, again in my quest to organize and declutter, this time my yarn room, I unearthed two unfinished scarfs, lacking only casting off and weaving in ends. I got busy and they officially became FOs.
All I can remember about this one is that it’s a pattern from Classic Elite Yarns. This is the second scarf in this pattern that I’ve done. The first was done in Liberty Wool. This yarn, I don’t remember. I’ll do a stash dive later and see what I can come up with.
ON THE NEEDLES or LIKE I NEED TO START ANOTHER PROJECT
I caved in last night and cast on Crocus Vernus from The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, using the pink mystery Shibui Sock I found on sale at my LYS, Yarn Mart. Loving it already, the color and the pattern. And yes, I’m still working on the Sunday Swing Socks. I have to admit it’s very gratifying to see that this pattern really does show off the colors in the Shibui Poodle Skirt yarn to their best advantage. I love it when a plan (finally) comes together!
WAIT, IT’S MAY, NOT JANUARY
I think someone neglected to send Mother Nature the memo that it’s May. As I type this, the temperature is 40 degrees in Little Rock, it’s snowing in Fayetteville and raining here. What happened to Spring? It was here a day ago, I saw it.
