Sssshhh


Mommy got up from her knitting spot, and if I am really, really stealthy and make myself really, really small, maybe she won't notice me here. I won't touch the knitting or the knitting book she likes to look at when she is thinking about summer. If she notices me, I'll just pretend like I don't know anything. Down? I've never heard that word before.


I am not sure why Blogger reposted my post from one year ago, sorry about any confusion... Thank you for the sweet comments....

Yarn dieters, don't worry

I am picking up the slack. No yarn shops should go out of business in the near future.

Since I don't have the lovely Blossom here to lend class to the operation, I am resorting to other measures. Yarn porn. Gratuitous, wanton, sizzling, Scandinavian dirty blond yarn porn.



First the neutrals:

Regia Silk, Misti Alpaca Chunky (love this), and Classic Elite Blithe (100% baby camel, this is ridiculously, unbelievably light and soft. )


The blues:

Purple Sisik, turquoise Koigu KPPPPPM, purplish Cascade Pastaza wool/llama


The reds:


Pink Koigu KPM, hot pink Lang Jawoll, Lornas Laces in Bittersweet, Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Ruby Red


Ok, so I am a little overboard. I knew it was a mistake to start knitting socks. The sock yarn multiplies so easily. By the way, this spectacular guy from the neutrals category reminds me of this character from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Except a little softer.

It's the crow's nest for you.
