No Harm in Yarn

Can't we all just knit along?


I've spun yarn!

1st Handspun Yarn

I got the roving and drop spindle at Maine Woods Yarn on Etsy. It is dense and uneven and beautiful (to me). I will practice.
My husband doesn't get it. He doesn't need to.


Beauty is in the Eye...

I just bought a new canopy for my craft show excursions. I currently have a green one that is comprised of 40 pieces and takes 30 minutes to assemble. This will apparently take seconds. Ahhhh!


Progress and Regression

I have made progress on Icarus. I will post a photo but it is kinda bad quality.

Icarus detail

I believe I'm halfway though the last chart but this photo was taken at the beginning of the last chart. I'm a little worried about having enough yarn. the ball is small but densely wound. To give myself a safety net I looked at to see if they had anything close. I know it will be a different dye lot and may not match exactly. I also know things from HPY in the same dye lot will sometimes not match exactly. I'm still thinking about overdyeing because of the weird yellow-pink-beige spots running through it. Most of the time I'm not bothered, but car knitting reveals this color.
Anyhow, here's what fell into my cart by accident:

Hence, the use of the word regression. Now, I know at least one of those will show up looking completely different than the photo. It'll be interesting to see which.


I Dyed Me Some Purdy Yarn

These will be sold (hopefully) at the 25th Annual Berks County Heritage Festival in October. When I was selling handknits last year everyone told me they knew a knitter. Alright. Now I'll have yarn.

I love handpainting yarn! I get excited to see how they look re-skeined. And then excited about how they'll look knitted. If I don't sell them I get to keep them!!! I can't lose!
