A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

April 8, 2004

The Shapely Tank Knitalong has a blog! It's not as snazzy as the Audrey Knitalong blog but it'll do for now. Any knitalong folks who want to post to the group blog just need to email me. Theresa is making her tank in the round and has posted instructions on how you can do it too. Chris has nearly finished her tank! I will hopefully finish knitting the back of my tank tomorrow. I'll try to take some pictures.

More yarn came from Patternworks. Koigu, baby!

I'm not really sure what I want to do with it all. I will need to do some creative thinking to find a way to make matching socks since I have ten different skeins of yarn each in a unique colorway. A Charlotte's Web shawl comes to mind of course. But what to do with the other five? I'm (very) open to suggestions.

I got a skein of Manos too. Just 'cus.

I was very inspired by this post by Leigh. She made herself some gorgeous yarn. I'm really wanting to learn to spin now. She also had a link to this site with great crockpot dyeing instructions that produced this incredible yarn in my favorite colors.
