Sachi’s Purls, kids. Sachi’s Purls.
This here roving is called “Enough With The Girly” and it is SO beautiful. The picture is pretty good, but there’s so much more depth to the colors that I just can’t capture. I can’t wait to spin it up. It is NOT girly at all, but it’s subtle and pretty all the same. This is definitely going to be done in a navajo ply and I’m going to try to preserve the colors in the same progression she did them in. I pulled it out of the box and though, “Oh yeah. SO going to be the yarn I make the Harlot’s handspun scarf out of. Whee!” Thanks, Sachi!
I just cast on for Cookie A’s Pomatamus socks in STR “Lapis” and WOW is that ever fabu. The perfect colorway for an amazing pattern. I love it when stuff just comes together so well. I will take pics when I have more than just ribbing to show you.
Otherwise I am spending far too much of my time on Ravelry. Danger, Will Robinson, Danger.
My garden is not dying. I am encouraged. See, it’s been a rough year and all my plants died. SO recently I got a new batch of, er, hardier plants. Okay, okay, they’re cactii, but whatever. I haven’t killed them yet. My plants are a good indicator of how my moods are going. Call them my DepressOMeter. Right now, all systems are ok. I’ve been better, but I’ve been worse, too.
I taught myself to knit during a very bad depressive episode and I really think it saved my life. So when I found this collection of links and stories and what this one knitter is doing to raise awareness, I thought, “nifty!” and took the button. Check it out.
And now… it’s payday. I am going to surf the Spunky Eclectic site and spend the grocery money on fiber to feed my habit. Stand back kiddies, Mama needs a new set of rovings!
