On a Good Day…

…you finish a project. A One Row Scarf, Crystal Palace Yarns Iceland. Size 10.5US needles. Note the nifty braided look of the selvages.

…you buy some yarn. Pat Catan’s was having a clearance sale on discontinued Lion Brand yarns.

Yarn Accident

…you get asked by a friend’s 10 year old son to teach him how to knit. He picks up on knit and purl stitches in five minutes flat and spends the rest of the *2 hours* you are hanging out with his parents at a coffee shop knitting on your piece of travelling knitting. He ignores his milkshake to knit. He’s getting a knitting kit – size nine bamboo needles, three skeins of wool-ease (it was a really great sale), a yarn needle, scissors and needle point guards. In a guy friendly tool box.

  1. The Lion Brand I think I’m going to use for gifts — dasHusbands family are *not* handwash people, so the wool-ease will be perfect for things for them. I want to keep the fish blanket in 100% wool. I need to take some time here and memorize the pattern – the fish would be perfect travelling knitting.

    The tool-box is great — everything fits in it perfectly. I had so much fun putting this little kit together — cruising the dollar store for notions (that’s where I found the toolbox), and then Pat Catans for the yarn and needles. I enjoy these small acts of knitting evangelism.
