More Stitches pron

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I left off the last post with sharing yarns that I bought and won. Now to the wonderful yarns that I was given to design with. Across the aisle from Kollage Yarns, and up a tiny piece was a booth that kept drawing me in, but was almost always full. I eventually had better luck, […]

Stitches, friends, yarn

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Stitches West. Where do I even start? It was wonderful. But then, it’s always wonderful: the friends, the yarn, the books, the yarn, the pajama party, the yarn, the prize I collected and donated to the pajama party, the Ravelry party, the yarn, the buttons, knickknacks, needles, and fleece. Oh, and the yarn. And the […]

Long Beach 2011 TNNA

Saturday, January 29, 2011

I did a little better with posting late in 2010, but January’s been, er, a bit slow in the way of blog posting, except for the one little blurb that Dave put out there for me (thanks, Dear!) the other day. (By the way, keep your eyes peeled for occasional bursts from Dave when the […]

Elann yarn pron

Friday, October 9, 2009

I know. I haven’t blogged in an age. I’ve been busy. Plus the dearth of real comments has made me wonder if my efforts at continuing to spend the time blogging are at all worthwhile. Honestly, I received 25 spam comments since October 1, and only five real comments since September 1. Though I love […]

A little yarn pron & a finish

Saturday, August 22, 2009

I received a nice surprise in the mail this week. Yarn. Unexpected yarn.
I told you late last year that I’d designed a cowl, Basket Whip, with the same stitch I used for Flying Lindy (socks), Sugar Push (fingerless mitts), and Syncopation (tank top). I believe I also mentioned that I talked to Classic Elite […]

TNNA report

Friday, June 19, 2009

Dave and I had a fabulous time in Columbus, Ohio for the summer TNNA trade show. We talked to tons of people, fondled lots of fabulous yarn, and managed to find time for some fun along the way.
Getting there
Our flight out of southern California was on time, but early, early, early. A friend came […]

A little yarn pron

Thursday, June 18, 2009

My computer’s still sick, so I’m still using the laptop. It’s sitting on the bar in the family room, and to use it I either sit on a bar stool that has no back support, or stand. Needless to say, I’ve about had it for the day. I didn’t want to leave you completely, though, […]

Yarn tasting

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

On Monday the Knit Knight crowd got together as usual, but we had a treat. Denise saw recently that the fine folk at ArtFibers are beginning to send kits around for a yarn tasting, sets of yarn with plenty to swatch with, so she signed us up. Monday was the day. Denise got there early […]

Berry goodness

Thursday, May 14, 2009

The last two seasons I’ve donated a pattern as a prize to the Seasons of Lace KAL. They opened it up this last time so that prize donors could also post their projects. Sometime during the course of the KAL I finally finished that dress I’d been working on for so long for my friend […]

Caught in the act

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Posh yarn arrived!
Finally. It took ages for the British and U.S. postal services to do their combined thing and deliver this fiber-y goodness to my doorstep. The yarn from Dee got here on Monday, just in time for me to take it to knit knight for show and tell. It’s so pretty! And soft. Yes, […]
