I've been selling hand-dyed yarn at Hidden River Yarns in Manayunk. She currently has in stock an alpaca merino laceweight, and superwash 100% merino fingering weight. Most colors are one of a kind - so go check it out!
My sock yarn blankie is moving along slowly but surely. This picture was taken in May. I haven't worked on it recently, mostly because I have had other knitting projects with deadlines. I never get tired of looking at it though.
I'm organizing my stash - for those of you who know me, you know this is not a one day task. I will be recording my progress here, to turn in for my class credit at the end of the week.
For Quidditch this first week of the House Cup, organization is the name of the game. Organize your stash (like I am), or your projects, or your queue (NOT ME, my queue would need full time attention to be organized again)
I'm casting on The City Skyline Scarf - following the Infinitude Scarf Pattern, using Patons Classic Wool in Worn Denim to reflect the pretty blue of the sky that is reflected into the tall buildings of Philadelphia.
So, I added the picture of the yarn into my stash this morning - and added the picture of the yarn into my project page as well.
The yarn has tried to be other things before, so it's photo is showing that it's been around the bin once or twice.
I've found myself with some unexpected free time. Except maybe free time isn't the word for it, since I've been busier than ever. I'm recently unemployed and aside from worrying about how I'm going to pay my bills, I'm happy and happily doing all sorts of things I haven't had time for in a long time.
I thought it was perhaps time to start blogging here again. I have a more active Tumblr page, but it's more for photos and less for streams on thought, and since one of the things that is keeping me busy is getting back into the swing of dyeing more, and getting ready to jump into launching a new line of hand-dyed yarns, I thought I should reach back out to those of you who might get a notification that I've posted again.
Keep your eyes open, there will be an Indiegogo and/or Kickstarter campaign going up soon.
But now, I'm running off to one of my last Dr's appointments before I have no more health insurance, and then to a baseball game (free tickets, FTW)
I hope you are as happy to have me back as I am to be here!
The Love of a Friend Because you love me, I have found
New joys that were not mine before;
New stars have lightened up my sky
With glories growing more and more. Because you love me I can rise
To the height of fame and realms of power;
Because you love me I may learn
The highest use of every hour. Because you love me I can choose
To look through your dear eyes and see
Beyond the beauty of the Now
Far onward to Eternity. Because you love me I can wait
With perfect patience well possessed;
Because you love me all my life
Is circled with unquestioned rest;
Yes, even Life and even Death
Is all unquestioned and all blest.
