  1. Yarn Bomb Spotted

    July 27, 2011 by enid

    Well it wasn’t spotted it was more stripey. To my delight I found a yarn bomb in my city, the first one I’ve ever seen here. But then again I live under a rock. So there could possibly be more here. But for now here it is I put together a little slide show for your  Yarn Bombing:The Historic Pearl Brewery – CIA Bakery Cafe

    And after doing a little research I found the team that put that piece together they call themselves the Yarn Dawgz. Founding members, Billy Muñoz & Dino Foxx are painting the town AWESOME one ball of yarn at a time. I will be keeping an eye out in anticipation to see what these dawgz have in store for us. If I’m lucky maybe I can throw a little string on something with them one day too. How exciting would that be. 🙂

    I wonder what the neighborhood association minions would do if somebody wrapped all the mailboxes in yarn in our neighborhood. *snicker* I’m going to leave that one alone, and leave it to the professionals.

    I also found a group creating a Yarn Graffiti Documentary. They are in their last days of fundraising so maybe if you want and can you help them out. I would love to see this dream come to fruition.

  2. A welcoming jubilee

    July 21, 2011 by admin

    As my first post I think I’ll start off with a little Jubilee. Zen String’s Jubilee that is. A really good friend of mine had to move so she decided to do a little de-stashing before the big trip to her new home. I came away with a few things and 2 skeins of Jubilee was among them. 50% Merino Wool and 50% Tussah silk, Leelee is the color way.

    And this is usually the scenario for me and I’m sure many of you. Okay maybe just me. I had 500 yards of worsted weight and too many ideas to begin or perhaps I didn’t have any so this time I just started on one thing and see where it would take me.

    The clapotis scarf was first on the needles with this soft squishy yummy yarn. I used the pattern adaptation on the kpixie site. I never really know how long to take a scarf. Think I might have prematurely casted off, but at 58 inches long it seems like a nice length for it.

    At this point I had about a skein and a half left. So I searched the depths of ravelry and found the Unicorn Pegasus Rainbow Scarf by Huan-Hua Chye. Garter stitch knitted on a bias, love love loved it. I think this one is going to be mine.
