When there are no FOs, flash your stash, and nature pictures.



After a particularly heinous challenging day at work, I am rejuvenated by a package I found hiding out on my patio from my Madison, Wisconsin sister (wearer of Rogue).Inside was a very nice card, a bag of cashews, two skeins of Koigu, color 275, two skeins of Malabrigo (yum,yum,yum) and 3 colors of the Lamb's Pride Worsted to make a Jayne Hat. My cup runneth over! Thank you thank you thank you! (or as we say here, Mahalos). I love it all!





I joined some talented and crafty ladies for a walk at Hoomaluhia and it was a glorious day. It was impossible to be uncheered. Not even thinking about seaming Ribby Cardi.

The purple hedge near my house was if full bloom. How beautiful is that?

Oooh, nice sister! Keep that Koigu comin'!

Sorry your work sucks. Perhaps wearing a cunning Jayne hat will put a different spin on it. Knit along?

Food? Water? Air? Who needs 'em when you have the other essential elements...

Koigu * Malabrigo * and Lamb's Pride (with a purpose no less)!

Luscious. And of course you can't forget a superstar sister who would gift those wonderful yarns to you :-)

Weren't the Koolaus breathtaking this weekend?

How do you like that Lamb's Pride yarn? I saw some in a yarn shop this weekend, and I thought the colors were beautiful, but it just felt so stiff to me! Does it soften when washed, or something? Perhaps it's just my aversion to wool.

I love your photos. Right now it's 20 BELOW zero, and anything without snow is cheering!

You live in such a beautiful place. All is gray and drab herein the Northeast. I am in love with the Malabrigo. That stuff is like butter.
