crossway kal

did you know about the fun we had in march?

a bunch of us did a knitalong (kal) over in my ravelry group ‘talitha’s tangles’

for the ‘crossway’ hat.

there was a custom colorway from mrs. crosby

called ‘cloverleaf’ available only through jimmy bean’s wool

(if you love green tonals, there are a few skeins left here),

lots of fun chatter and encouragement and hats.

definitely beautiful knit hats. take a look at our fo’s:

if you missed the fun, no worries.

i’ll be announcing (just about the mid-april)

the next kal

which will start

the first week of may.

this time around we’ll be knitting the depth cowl (in either dk or worsted).

keep an eye out here, or join ‘talitha’s tangles’

so you’re sure not to miss the detail packed

announcement all about that kal.

talk to you soon!

after the ‘sweatshirt incident‘ i was shocked to see that it has happened once again.

i’ve got paint squares pinned to my walls

trying to decide, for the first time in my life,

on a color for the main room in the house

which is not a version of off-white.

turns out i love these:

salmon-y pink

dark brown


faded tan

so nice.

…started knitting up a little something with the misti alpaca landscape chunky

that i won for random participation in the jimmy beans wool movie quiz chat

(and my participation

really was random

as i got not a single answer,

not even one, right).

only to realize later that

the ‘darcy’s garden’ colorway

that they sent has every shade

of my room.  mostly the salmon

that would be the new paint on the walls.

so funny.

what in my life will my yarn match up with next?

with yarn, you never can tell…
