I have blogger’s block. It’s been kind of blah around here and I’m tired of it. I’m trying to change things up, make different things happen, but honestly I just wanna throttle someone and be done with it. Sickness, tiredness, and just general yuck. But you don’t wanna hear about that. So I think we will distract ourselves with some lovely things. First up, something I received a while back but neglected to blog…
This is a thank you gift from the Nude Ewe – a very cool non-profit that’s all about the sheep. And you know how we love the sheep. This is dk weight, natural color, and just plum beautiful. I see lace in it’s future. Something Shetland-ish. Something inspired by the old, but with a twist. It’s been sitting on my shelf whispering to me. When it decides what it wants to say out loud, I will cast on. I mean look at that beautiful hand-spun twist. Honestly!
And on Saturday we had another Jax Ravelers gathering. Julie made the drive down with her adorable son (the boys had a blast btw) and a huge bin full of beautiful fibers. I tried to resist. But people were making squealing noises. C’mon!
It’s Flawful Fibers and the colorway is Passion. You can almost reach out and feel how squishy and soft that is, can’t you? Well back off! It’s mine. I had to fight for that one and it’s mine, all mine.
I need to figure out this photograph nonsense. When I get pictures that I’m happy with, it’s really kind of a happy accident. I need to be able to take more reliable photos. With or without the sun.
In other news, I’m looking at purchasing Knit Visualizer. If you own it and would care to give me your honest review, I’d love it! You can leave a comment or e-mail me. It’s a big investment, but I’m kind of in love with it. Let me know what you think!
