Yarn Pr0n

It’s kind of like a yarn bomb Friday because… I have nowhere to put the darn stuff!
I will spare you a photo of my “Guest Room”, where I try in vain to pretend that my yarn doesn’t live there.

Oh well… All the more reason to knit faster!

Make It Monday

Makin’ it not fakin’ it.

I had a super busy weekend but still managed to fit in some knitting. My “Morisot” sweater, the first installment of the Sweet Paprika Sweater Club, is coming along beautifully. I’m loving the Staccato worsted and the colourway I’m using – Northern Sky – is rich and complex with no pooling or flashing (now THAT would be a knaughty knit):


And because I’m stupidly in love with this FO, a couple more photos of my Elizabeth Shawl:

Now THAT’S Bringin’ Sexy Back!

The men of knitting. It’s wonderful to see men coming back to the fold – no pun – Sheep? Fold? Get it?

Fine. I’ll keep my day job.

This is a great article about Josh Bennett (click the photo or his name to view). His style, his method and how he recently shook up the knit world.

Small Shop Update

From So Many Vices, So Little Time:

“I’ve added a few things to my Etsy shop, most notably there is a sale on OOAK and prototype scarves going on. A little bit of handspun that I’ve been hoarding and a few tools and bits.
