Yarny Goodness

I have no new knitting to show right now. Between sleep deprivation and baby caretaking there hasn't been time. I'm hoping that will change soon. It hasn't stopped me from stockpiling yarn though. The Gothsock club yarn continues to roll in and the yarn is so fascinating every month. This month is a non-striping gothling in a bamboo blend. The colorway is Frakken Toaster.


I spun up some beautiful superwash BFL fiber from Susan's Spinning Bunny. I love her dyeing and her fiber is always super soft and never accidentally felted as it sometimes is with other dyers. The colorway is Roses For You.



It's 3.5 ounces and my best guess is about 115 yards.

I have a birthday coming up in a few weeks and I think I want a kit for a Dipped Infinity Scarf. So pretty!

One Great Knitter - knitcroblo3


So I've decided to join in a bit late on this week of blog topics. Here is today's:

Write about a knitter whose work (whether because of project choice, photography, styling, scale of projects, stash, etc) you enjoy. If they have an enjoyable blog, you might find it a good opportunity to send a smile their way.

This was hard because I enjoy perusing knitting blogs and spend waaaay too much time on Ravelry so I've seen a lot of impressive knitters. In the end I chose Mandy. I met her once a long time ago so don't really "know" her but I stalk her blog semi regularly. I chose her because she does a lot of things I aspire to and/or can't imagine doing including beautiful colorwork and pattern design. She takes great photos for her blog and often has cute models showing off her kidswear knits! In the interest of full disclosure, I should say that it doesn't hurt that she has charts up for NY Giants logos and being a fan of the G-Men will get you pretty far with me! ;)

Anyhoo.... that's "One Great Knitter" for ya! Check out her blog (zigzagstitch)and tell her I sent you or comment here and tell me what you think!
