Thanks to Spaazlicious, I FINALLY learned how to do a Figure 8 Tie on my skeins! If only I’d gotten a cool Niddy Noddy at the MS&W…

I am on an ORANGE Bender! and this really caught my eye! I got this whole pattern book from the Boyz awhile back and was delighted when I saw it online.

Not only is it Orange, it’s HOLEY! And holey in a good way, like key-holey.

I’ve wearing orange any chance I get (yes, it’s still in the 40’s some days in the mornings) – but the sun is BRIGHT in the Late Spring Skies and all of those bright colors I love are calling out to me…

I’m about living in one of my favorite sweaters from Springs Past…

This is called “CORE” from Rowan Book 29 and is made from a cone of 100% cotton I got from Midwest Dicount Yarns out on Irving Pk all the way back in 2001! It was almost one of the Hand Bender Cotton Knitting Ordeals but something in the way I knit seems to save me from that soreness others have talked about.

I learned how to knit when I was 10 from my Busia, and I throw the yarn with my right hand and hold both needles with my left during the throw. (I’ll try to take a picture of it someday because it is really funny looking :) So, I’m not stressing any hand or finger during the process.

If you are in the mood for an adventure, take a trip to see *the Ladies* @ Midwest. Their shop is full of mainly crafting acrylic yarn, but on shelves and in the rear of the store are all sorts of goodies…

I’ve found plenty-o-excitement in the form of wool and cotton in their aisles both skeined and coned AND they have many vintage patterns that are worth their weight in gold for entertainment value.
