Let’s talk Crafty Christmas…Part 1

Thursday, March 6th, 2014 | dye, FO's, Holiday, knitting, shawl, stash busting, yarn, yarn snobbery | No Comments

Well, all of the Crafty Christmas gifts have been given, which means I can finally start sharing them with the world. I am so glad too, since it’s been really difficult to keep these projects under wraps!

Let’s start with the present I made for Courtney…Pigment from Leethal Knits.

I really love this shawl.

I used Blue Moon Socks That Rock and some of my hand dyed candy corn colored yarn.

Spaghetti!

This was a fun pattern to knit. I think at some point I will try and make one for myself. It appealed to my love of weaving in ends.

I liked it so much that I plan on knitting one for myself at some point.

Hopefully I’ll get the chance to take a photo of Courtney wearing it some time. It turned out to be the perfect size… and the color combination made me super happy.

This reminds me of you…

Sunday, April 8th, 2012 | Friday Night Knitting, yarn | No Comments

Something happened recently and it really had me thinking. Thinking about how certain things can remind you of people. I had received an email from Stephanie of unwind saying that they had received some yarn and that a couple of the ladies in the shop were saying that I should take a look at it because it was “my color” and I was the first person that they thought of when they saw it. Now normally, when I knit, or buy yarn, I gravitate to colors that are darker…teals and purple. I was a little surprised when she said it was the perfect highlighter-like shade of acid green.

Acid green tencel.

Of course, we knitters have, at some point, lifted a skein of yarn to someone else and commented on how it is *their color*.
So I started to think…and I can completely see acid green being “my color”. I even have a acid green sweater at home (even if it is a little faded). So I’m not sure why I didn’t think of it sooner.
