What We're Working On (a.k.a. WIPs):
What We've Finished (a.k.a. FOs):
What We Couldn't Resist (a.k.a. Stash Enhancement):
- Dana spent her birthday on a road trip to Cincinnati. Before she left, she received a lovely new mic from Kristi! On the way to Ohio, she stopped at Black Mountain Yarn Shop and picked up a lovely Home Row Fiber Co. project bag and a Lux Adorna Knits Fun Size Sport Bundle in "Crazy Redhead". She also got yarn to make her lovely hostess a hat, some Magpie Fibers Swanky DK in "Velvet Underground". Whilst in Ohio, she visited the awesome fiber shop Silk Road Textiles and got lots of goodies including a new 12-dent reed for her Cricket Loom, a souvenir project bag with the Cincinnati skyline, two skeins of Gypsy Girl Creations Transitions gradient in "Pharaoh", a skein of MadeleineTosh Prairie in "Hi-lo", a skein of Berroco Sox in "1418", and skein of Lang Jawoll Color Superwash in "Ptie". When she returned from her trip, a special package from Kristi arrived with pretties from Interweave which included two skeins of MJ Yarns Kuan-Yin Worsted in "Jasper" and "Briolette", an awesome pin, and the most fantastic button.
- Kristi had a yarntastic weekend 4/13-4/15. The first stop was at My Sister Knits in Fort Collins, CO. Kristi picked out some gorgeous yarn and Eddie treated her to it. What Kristi didn't know was that Eddie snuck a surprise gift of Lykke needles into the purchase too. Lykke is Norwegian for Happiness and you can learn how to pronounce it here. The next stop was at Interweave Yarn Fest in Loveland, CO. Kristi bought a lot of yarn and some other goodies at the festival. The last stop was at Longmont Yarn Shoppe in Longmont, CO where she picked up an embroidery kit and a cashmere kit.
