Start Your Day……. March 24, 2017
Start your day with this beautiful photo of Spring in Ireland – a contrast of green and yellow – thanks to Sarah Rubalcava of Rubalcava Horticultural Services.
Sarah’s mom (and my friend) Magda Rubalcava is an award winning internationally renown tapestry weaver – wouldn’t this make a spectacular tapestry?
Blue Yarn, Sweaters, and Travel Memories December 11, 2016
I have previously written about the blue yarn which I purchased at a little sop in the Aran Islands,which are located off the West Coast of Ireland. I bought a good amount of this yarn and a sweater pattern. When it finally came to the knitting, I used a different pattern for one and found I had almost enough of that lovely yarn for another sweater.
Sweater 1, I sort of made up the design
Sweater 2 yes it is the same yarn but the selfie photo was taken in different lighting.
I should really get a photo of the 2 sweaters side by side.
A Big Yarn “Store” November 16, 2016
This past weekend I attended the Yarn Market which was part of a big knitting event, Knit Fit, here in Ballard Seattle. The Yarn Market part of Knit Fit was held in the big gymnasium at the Ballard Community Center. A big gymnasium packed with yarn shops displaying their wares. Heaven for knitting and crochet enthusiasts!
my lovely purchase at the Yarn Market
This photo is for one of my sons who likes to take me to yarn stores.
Searching For A Nice Brown Yarn October 12, 2016
On my recent trip to Glastonbury Connecticut I visited 2 yarn stores – Village Wool in Glastonbury and Mystic River Yarns in Mystic Connecticut. I just like looking for yarn and knitting – not sure what project or projects will result. I bought 2 different browns and thought about knitting a sweater. I prefer the “richer” brown – but my sample knitting has too few stitches to be continued as a sweater. The lighter brown sample has enough stitches……so, what should I do? I’m thinking!
