Jack was right

Momma will drape Daddy's sweater in progress over you if you crawl up on her lap and ask nice.



Daddy wanted a red sweater but picked out this nice red wine color. Does it bring out my nice orange highlights?


Wool knits into such a nice fabric. I feel just the right temperature for a nap. It is ever so hard taking care of Momma and Daddy. I think I just earned some treats don't you?

Momma watched a Doctor Who marathon, she still thinks 10 is her favorite. Auntie Lizard still likes 12 better. I am undecided... guess I need more lap time to decide.

Yarn Crawling

We may have moved across the country from my favorite yarn festival, but I still know how to find yarn. Burt was right you gotta stretch before these events!

I hit seven of the 13 stores over four days and enjoyed myself. Burt did not go with me to a single one?! He did however find some of the yarn interesting and tried to carry it around the house but did not get very far.


Yep that is a lot of socks to be, and a cowl and a pair of mittens for my sister. Oh there is a two color shawl to be in there on the left too. I got quite a few local dyers and one lovely purple skein of Handmaiden Casbah. Yep I finally found Casbah. I melted like butter when I touched it. I was strong enough to walk away and look at some other yarns before running back to pick out the original purple that caught my eye and touched my soul. What? I get a tad dramatic about yarn, ya'll know that. I'll save the actual loot listing for another day. Me? I've got some yarn to pet.
