The View Across the Water

I love this time of year, when the ice is just starting to break and melt away. A little more depth of field would be nice, but what can you do? An iPhone can only do so much.

Modeknit Mini Skein Set

I have a little sample pack of Modeknit yarns, in "Call the Midwife" colors. They are so cute! I was going to mix in a lot of gray from Simply Socks, but now I'm leaning toward just having the Modeknit go in all of its multiple-colored glory.

Kitty With Spinning Bag

Please forgive me the gross rag I use to wipe spinning grease off of my wheel. Our little Travis doesn't relax well enough to sleep around us very much. When he does, it's quite an event.

Antique-Store Inspiration

For those of you who have babies, would they REALLY benefit from having their little knees covered like this? Or was this just a good idea before central heat?

What Yarns Do You Love to Miss?

Some yarns are like twinkies in a zombie flick. You love it. They don't make it anymore. Someday it will all be gone. I bought a whole bag of this stuff when it went on clearance at Simply Socks. I'm knitting stash right now, and it turned up. It's a great yarn. A little splitty if you don't treat it right, but what isn't? Every bamboo yarn I have used is, essentially, indestructable. If you've never tried one, you should.

A Little Plying

I couldn't resist. I finally chain-plied the singles I finished several weeks ago. I love it! I will wash and measure the skein...sometime. Right now I'm just enjoying the feeling of having empty bobbins.

A Fun Idea

I don't usually see a lot to inspire me at the Gap, but I love this raglan idea: plain front and back, patterned sleeves. :) This would be fun with colorwork or even a little lace.
