So Far...

Using odd balls of yarn. For the mommy body I used left over Yarn Absolute Wool in pink that I used in my nieces Escuelita Sweater. I have now started the CC color for the pockets, arms and legs in a deep wine color and I think its Caron Simply Soft. Finished the body, pockets, legs, and one arm. Need to cast on second arm.
US 6 knitpicks options needles

Need to remember to stick my Scylla socks in my purse.


I lost 4 ounces of spun yarn to a "pretty" day. Using a mixer to unwind yarn onto a toilet paper roll is a good idea however the execution needs to be better planned out. And an even prettier moment where I thought I could unwind it ended up in an even bigger tragedy. Oh the humanity!!

Started an Abstract Fiber BFL 4 oz braid. But not much progress since I am still in mourning :'(.

Not much sewing and strongly considering getting my own machine.

I talk about my Gilmore Girl addiction and the new Breaking Dawn Trailer.
