Hank-ering for new projects…

I think I’ll be knitting a lot of “Sherbet” inspired knits this winter. I should, also, invest in a yarn baller so I don’t have to sucker a friend to help me ball my hanks. The back burnt orange Lorna Laces Worsted Weight yarn will be used for a cardigan sweater, the Cascade Heathers 220Continue reading “Hank-ering for new projects…”

Yardage…

The paper purge was immense, and desperately needed.Continue reading “I stashed too many things away…”

Malabri-n-go Me This!

I finally got my hands on some delicious Malabrigo yarn! Drools! While these two kettle dyed and handspun in Uruguay skeins really made my credit card sweat, let me just say, it.was.worth.it. Malabrigo yarn is smooth and soft as butter; a pure Merino worsted weight yarn well worth the $12 a hank; and might IContinue reading “Malabri-n-go Me This!”
