Yeah! Now for your viewing pleasure The Kanagawa Cowl in Chroma Worsted, The Go-Go Newsboy in Wool of the Andes Tweed, and the Fillmore Scarf in Chroma Fingering (featuring my d 16yos – click on the more views tab on website). Isn’t Emily lovely? I’m waiting on news (nail-biting, obsessively clicking ‘get mail’ button) from Quince & Co. to see if my submission for a beaded scarf made the cut or not., and I just ordered 6 skeins of their “Puffin” yarn to rework the Koke Garden Cardi. I’m going to gradiate colors in warm, rich dark greens to Nasturtium & Pale yellow. It looked so soft and lovely, I couldn’t decide on just one color.
I said that I’d never ‘tweet,’ didn’t think that speaking my thoughts at the moment would ever be for me. Oh well, never say never. I’m on Twitter – see knitspinner69. It’s so easy when you’re limited to 140 characters. It started as a way to help connect others with my home-away-from-home: Anacapa Fine Yarns, but getting a glimpse into the lives and thoughts of the people I admire, and getting to know some I didn’t before is fascinating. I’m really excited to connect with some really amazing designers, and fabulous yarn companies. I’m trying not to obsess with it..very hard..harder than I thought it would be.
One company I’m really excited to know further is the Three Irish Girls yarn co. Their colorways are rich and vibrant. I really like “Ian,” but then I may be partial because my eldest son is Ian, and HE would like those colors too. Also, I submitted 2 patterns to them that I hope they really like (both Kirigami-style). We’ll see, she say with fingers &, maybe, eyes crossed.
