Busy B

Sorry for the lack of posting, but I have actually been working on lots of different projects! Photos to come the next couple of days. Hope everyone is having a great week. Now I'll go back into my cave and try to get some of these projects done!

Get it while it's Hot!

Get it while you can! Pre-order the Premiere Issue of Mixtape on Etsy. Justine of 62 Cherry and pal Nikkishell, are putting together what looks to be quite a zine. Mixtape is a collision of craft, eco-cool and pop culture kitsch und drang Issue 1 features:
Craft 101, trashy movies, best of Etsy, 5 ways to go green, puzzles, and more. But hurry, looks like the girls only planned on making 100, and it seems as if there are almost double that already ordered. Props to Auntycookie for the cover design, isn't it cute? I just love the sewing machine in the tree, and the bunny in the corner, and the little girl knitting, and okay I'll stop...

The Question Is...

what do I make with this wonderful fiber??
I am having so much fun staring at it, touching it, photographing it. I know,I know - it's starting to get a little creepy, but I love this yarn sooo much and I want to make sure I do it justice by finding the right pattern. I love how bright the pink is, and I love how when wound into a cake it comes out with this argyle-type look. Now I'd love to find a pattern. Any suggestions?

Dead Milkmen

Thanks to the wonderful Lotus Knits for making my month by sending me this fabulous yarn. I squealed when I got it in the mail, and it procured a similar response when I showed it to my best friend Naomi. It's name: Punk Rock Girl just like the Dead Milkmen's song from the late 80's, so I thought I'd photograph it with my Docs from that same time period. Yikes! I can't believe I've had these boots over 20 years. I love the contrast of the pink and black and I can't wait to find a sock pattern that will be worthy of this yarn. Now maybe I can persuade her to make a colorway that consist of red, white, and black for one of my favorite bands, The White Stripes. Perhaps she could name it "Icky thump", or "Jack and Meg". Just maybe...
