In honor of the extreme business marriage of our friend
and inner city buddy, Kmart, I bring you, straight from
the SUPER Kmart purse department @Ashland Ave…

TADAAA!~ (or taduh, depending on your taste)


My NEW Knitting Bag!!!

Those of you who have wearied of my Pleather Payless Minucci tote, can now sing with joy or scream with relief?! I love this thing~! It has three areas inside – so I can conveniently put other essentials all up in there. I especially like the closure – a punched shape, hanging from a metal ring with a hole that fits over a knob. Did I mention, it’s PLAID!

I don’t carry a purse.

This is it.

And there is plenty of room for two knitting things at atime and my makeup. Lately, I’ve been on a Bucket Binge and have been working on Shazaam. The Back is finished and I’m onto the right front.

NOW that the Tweedy Bird Cardi AND the Twoncho are finished, I can branch out over some new Horizons. Over the weekend, I fired up the DYEpot once again and put forth more skeins from my rescued eBay yarn.

I was going for the shade found in my favorite T-shirt and a shade of blackberry from my favorite commercial sweater. The burgundy is spot-on; the blackberry is a little light, but overall, it’s a done tonal match…

It’s amazing to me, with my photographic background how different color is when you mix pigments. My experience is in mixing light. I can walk into almost any space and tell you its color temperature.

I can’t tell you shade percentages.

Additive versus subtractive color spaces are two different beasts. I’m an Additive Amazon but a Sophmoric Subtractive.

Even after two workshops, I’m still crawling around sucking my thumb on this one – slowly, I’ve been able to garner some webbage info, but this has to be a hands on thing. You can only go so far without gettin’ DIRTY…
