No Harm in Yarn

Can't we all just knit along?


Foo-Foo and the Very Bad Knitter

So, someone on Flickr posted a colorway from Socks that Rock named Foo-Foo. My sisters nickname, at least growing up, was Foo-Foo (I really don't know why). You know I had to get it. But, if I'm paying $5.50 shipping on 1 skein or 3, I'll take 3!




Did I ever mention that I dye my own sock yarn?
Anyhow, my sis isn't a knitter so I will make socks or a scarf for her from Foo-Foo. Hopefully this package and my Rockin' Sock Club package will arrive concurrently so, if my husband sees them, he'll think they're all part of my first month installment! I'd rather just be the one home when the mail shows up!

We had a good time, though it was pretty cold for Florida. It was between 19 and 30 degrees back home, so we really made the most of the 50-70 degree weather. And I still got a little sunburned!
Either way, it's good to be back home with all of my yarn!


I'm Going on Vacation!

And I'm taking this with me!

"Lily Petal" Jaywalker

It's a Jaywalker in my own hand painted yarn. This is the first skein I've actually kept. I called it "Lily Petal". I'll make more to sell.
I will have other projects with me too. I just can't decide what they'll be.
See ya soon!
