Sunday, Sweet Sunday

The swatching for Tangled Yoke did not go well. I'm don't know if I'll ever find the right project for the Rowanspun DK. I love the color and the feel of the yarn, so I don't know why I can't find the right project. I suspect it's a a knitting mojo issue, so as of now, I have nothing big on the needles. I am fighting the urge to knit only Totoros.



O Totoro
Gazing lovingly at the brand new Beaverslide
Sees, more Totoros!

I sucessfully avoided spending the exorbitant amount on the armoire and got a media tower at 1/5 the cost. The sensible son advised me to try it for a week before getting another one. I am quite proud to have assembled it myself, including gluing in the pegs. It is very muggy now so that's my excuse for not finishing it. I think it will work just fine for my fabric stash. As I go through my fabric stash, I'm shocked at the depravity of it all. There is very familiar, but somehow forgotten stuff there, and lots of it.

I added a couple of asian bunny fabric bags to the shop.


It looks like it's going to be a hot one today.

Too bad the Rowan DK isn't working out. It's such a beautiful yarn. Good for you for getting that media case all assembled! I admire your fortitude! As always, your Totoros are darling. Especially the one with the visor!

Why not knit only Totoros? I spent over a decade making lizards and frogs out of beads, and it was a very pleasant life. Do not belittle the Totoro! --syl

More Totoros, please. Keep 'em coming! Your tale of woe with subbing yarn reminds me that when the day comes to knit Tangled Yoke, (and I want it, so badly) I'll just pony up and buy the recommended yarn. Bah! on knitting from stash... sigh.

So, it's February Lady, right? You know you want to...

That Totoro with the hat was too cute! He just needs some iced tea.
