My Friends went to BSG and all I Got...

Was a bunch of great STR!


Thanks Tina and Ang!
And you thought I was gonna say a t-shirt. Sheesh


Angela was also helping me get this tank done. I know, I know, it's not done. But I leave for Olds in two days and won't be back till the 8th, so take what you can get. It's going to look a lot better when the lace is blocked out.


Yesterday was a bumper fibre day around here. This huge batch of Kauni arrived from the Nederlands. Lucky for me that I found it before a certain someone blogged about it, and got it easily. It's probably the toughest yarn to get on the planet by now. If I didn't like it so much, I'd entertain bids so I could enlarge the Stash room.


There's been a lot of stuff going on around here lately, but most of it's not that interesting. Unless you count my daily meltdowns as interesting. And this top is a result of me not being able to concentrate on anything but Olds prep. Nice mindless summer (not that we've had summer yet) knitting. It'll be a short-sleeved top at some point. If I don't get it done by tomorrow, that point will be waaaay in the future. I still have to make up a bunch of itty bitty skeins for dyeing. Joy. I LOVE labelling dozens of teensy skeins. Just LOVE it.


I had to resort to alternative storage in the Stash room. But it works. See that stuff at the bottom of the pic? That's FLOOR. You heard me FLOOR. I had started to doubt that floor existed in there. The new Kauni and STR have taken up temporary (hopefully temporary) residence on the couch in the living room. They're very pretty. They may become a design feature that I add to every now and then...

the Kauni is spectacular!

the lace tank is quite catching.

looks like you need a bigger stash room...

You know, if you're overwhelmed at all by the STR... My fave is the Lunasea, just sayin'. Christmas is coming.

I thought the tank looked gorgeous, even unblocked! Can't wait to see it in the new colorway! I like that little purple number you're working on too, btw.

I'm willing to take some of that pesky yarn off your hands if you need to empty out that stash closet. You know, just to help out. Because that's how I am, a helper. And self-sacrificing too...

Love that Denise; she's so selfless.

Both of the tops in progress are really nice. I can't wait to see what you do with the Kauni.

Holy crap! Floor! I've got to say I'm VERY impressed by that sliver of floor.

Totally off topic... but every time I come here and see your title on this post, I think, "your friends went to Battlestar Gallactica? And they have STR there? ROCK!" and then I think, "wow. I am such the geek."
