I'm a whitey ford

Warning : the white hue of my skin may blind you. But this paleness is indicative of a few things.

1. Insane busyness with the gainful employment. WOW. Its true, even if you don't believe me ;)

2. Sick. Allergies are out of control and have spiraled into infections. Its ugly. And gross.

3. I've been in the house spinning and knitting!!!! YAY!

So what have I done with myself? How about a finished Snezi Shrug?



Pattern : Snezi Oversized Shrug, from Sensual Knits
Yarn : Noro Cash Iroha
Needle : Takumi Bamboo Circs 10.5 US

This needs a good shrink down. The silk content of the yarn is stretching it out a bit and its oversized to start with. I won't show you the back, because it looks like I'm wrapped in a burlap sack. But if you're on Rav, you can check it out for yourself ;)

And of course, there is spinning, a love with which I cannot be parted for long :




Soon I'm going to set up a gallery of customer knits! I can't believe what people have made with my handspun! If you have made something, please share :)

I knew you were going to ask...

I'm exhausted. After all, look at everything I had to carry home!



Proper post with pics tomorrow. But in the meantime, some eye candy. Because I knew you were going to ask ;)

We have a winner!



I got so many fabulous responses and feedback to our contest!!! Thank you all so much for participating. It was a very hard decision, but Betty from Texas was the winner with the name of 'Lil Ewey'! There was another that I thought was pretty clever, and I want to give an honorable mention prize to Katie from South Carolina with 'Lulu von Lamby'! Please check your emails so you can pick your prizes!!! :)

I've been spinning my heart out this week, and the yarn is selling as fast as I can spin it! But not to worry, I've got a few pounds (!) of roving headed my way so you can expect some fun new yarns to pop in the shop as this week and next week go on.

Thanks to everyone for their support of me, and Sheknitigans. Please accept my sincere thanks with FREE SHIPPING on any order placed now through Sunday, May 4. Just put 'free shipping' in the notes and wait for a revised invoice :)
