caution. i've lost my mind. turn back.

remember this 
go ahead
check it out
i'll wait...

yeah, well, all that
and drooling
and that

the habu came in.

here, let me show you
a little somethin' somethin'

see that mulberry colored yarn
yep, not kiddin' that's y.a.r.n.
oh, remember my cryin' bout
how itsy bitsy it was
how hard it was to see
how long freakin' forever
it would take to work with
blah, blah, blah

well, lets look at somethin'
down here...

so, here's a little comparison
see that black rope yarn
well that's the super bulky yarn
i typically work with
see how itsy~freakin'~bitsy the mulberry is?
go ahead,
take that in for a minute...

scary, eh?
that's nothin'
lookie here...

get out your flippin' magnifying glass
see that little white thinner~than~thread thing
come closer...squint if you have to
that white thinner~than~thread string is the
habu silk stainless y.a.r.n
that i've been
mindlessly unwittingly coveting

if i try to knit that
kusha kusha
i'm likely to
eyesight, too.

stay tuned to see if i actually attempt this feat 
which is 
nothing~short~of~lunacy crazy ridiculous
for the 
that's me.

but its still oh, so pretty...

i bid you

the yarn crawl. not unlike the pub crawl.

my little state hosted a
yarn crawl
the pub crawl
instead of a hangover
you get
loads of fiber
credit card denial.

unfortunately for me
i was only able to get to
one of our many yarn shops
here in the tiniest state
but i did score
mercerized cotton yarn
which will likely become

but not today.
i've got a few orders to whip up
and send out.

what's on your agenda today?

Gray. Grey. Love.

i consider myself a bright color lover
favs being turquoise, pink, blue

but lately
i'm having an obsession


i know, it's spring
where are the brights
where are the pastels
not here.
it's gray
not the light
silvery grey
i'm into the graphite
are you feelin' it?
happy stitches,

on my needles.

the inspiration

it was these sleeves and that neckline that got me.

I'm half way through the neck of
the deep breath sweater by Kirsten Hipsky in
this alpaca silk blend yarn in mulberry.
so far, so good.

Good news...
remember this recent project?
well, it's been sent off for approval and hopefully I can share the details soon.

Better news...
remember this swooning?
i just scored this
and will be able to start this

Kusha Kusha scarf very soon!
all in all, a very fine day.

Kusha Kusha Scarf...I want.

Doesn't matter which colorway you choose, I love this scarf.  It's knitted up with Habu Textiles Superfine Merino Wool (which is felted)along with Habu Textiles Silk Stainless Steel yarn (which doesn't felt).
The combination of the two is gorgeous.
