Thursday Is for What the Hell Is This?

As they said in Spinal Tap, "It's a such a fine line between stupid and clever."
I think we can all agree which side of the line this collection fell on.

Thursday Is for What the Hell Is This?

Honestly, I don't know how it happened. I was typing a knitting-related search into my browser bar, hit return and somehow ended up on a Russian website for custom-knit clothes for women. These women who require bespoke knits are clearly a classy bunch.




I, for one, would not want to have to knit these ensembles for myself.

Thursday Is for What the Hell Is This?

It's easy to find cray images on the internet. It's difficult to find out where they come from most of the time. Pictures get blogged and reblogged and tumblred and pinned and soon the virtual trail of breadcrumbs vanishes.

Because when I see something like this I really, sincerely wonder, "What the hell is this?" And why? And who? Etc.


The universe is a mysterious place.

Good Sign?

I think this is a sign of a good trip. I'm home from Fort Worden and just spent the last hour or so adding all my new yarn into my Ravelry stash. I have THIRTY-FOUR new entries. THIRTY. FOUR. That's two yarns I bought at the Artful Ewe and 32 I got in the stash sale. Most are just one-two skeins, or even partial skeins, but I shouldn't even be typing this right. I have to keep knitting!

Fiber Gallery Imperial Stock Ranch Retreat

I just got home from the Fiber Gallery's first-ever retreat to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We were lucky enough to go to Maupin, Oregon to have a day of instruction with Bonne Marie Burns and a day at the Imperial Stock Ranch. It was amazing. But, since I was running the whole thing, it was also exhausting. Which is why I'm very happy to heading to my usual November retreat to Fort Worden first thing Wednesday morning!

A few snapshots from our trip.
