Sunday


Wow! Middle of April already. Where does the time go? Seems just yesterday, I had made a commitment to resurrect this blog and my long-neglected shops and projects.

I can become a little too enthusiastic at times though and am suffering a dreadful dose of “Startitis”.

I’ve been dreaming of projects and waking in a tizzy to grab a hook or needles and some yarn. My home looks like an explosion in the Noro factory (colourful, messy and with lots of bits stuck in it, lol!).

I MUST finish something or my poor brain will spazz. There are times that I’m grateful to have ADD, other times I swear someone could find me in the textbook.

As all my projects are larger, I’m going to try to focus on just one part of one. The scarves really should have been done by now, along with the photos. My inner teenager has conspired against me on this last part of it though, the dreaded seventh scarf. Today I will finish.

Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Silk Single

Colour change. Hand dyed skeins have much more personality than commercial.

I know now that I will run out of yarn for  Chameleon, so setting that aside until I can get my hands on more of the contrast / border colour. No hardship to go and browse at Jimmy Beans! When starting the Blackwood Shawl, I knew that I would either run out or need to make adjustments. I calculated a mod but the more I looked at the scale and what the finished size will be, I really wanted to make it to pattern. Fortunately for me The Yarn Company had a couple skeins of this very limited colourway left. Their customer service was great and being in NY, it won’t take long to get here. Yay Roxanne! Zen Yarn Garden from right here in Ontario (where I am today) has grown so much.

Now must be off. This turned into the longest post ever, when meant to be more of a disclosure for incentive! There are many chores to be done before any knitting. The Beau should be here soon and I’m certain he won’t want to see what a crazy yarn lady I can be when he’s away!

Yarn Pr0n photo, before I have to hide this away with the rest of the stash. My Wollmeise score from Loopy’s last update:

Slightly better representation of colour. Deepest, darkest, Merlot with almost no variegation.
