About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.

Yup.  I’m a sheep.  Why this time?  Well, I got a message on Ravelry that someone had linked to my profile in a post.  Specifically, Cristi linked to me to ask me if I wanted to join in on the Leyburn Socks KAL in the Socks That Rawk! group.  Basically, they are taking this lovely pattern and seeing how many colorways of Socks that Rock they can use for it.  So, I took at look at the colors I have and I decided on Iolite – it was one of the four not already in use, and when I looked at the options, it just seemed like the best choice.  And Kris agreed.  I cast on last night, and so far, I have two toes.  LOL

I also finished up a SUPER quick project yesterday – the Om Eye Pillow.  I spotted it on Glitty Knitty Kitty on Friday, and I knew I needed to make one for my uber-fabulous yoga teacher Joan.  We start back to class this Thursday for the winter session, so I’ll give it to her then.

Stuffed (I made an inner pillow of cotton and filled it with flax seeds):

I used Patons Organic Cotton in “Hemp”, and I really liked working with it.  The label calls for US7’s, but I used US3’s, and it came out as a nice soft fabric with plenty of drape for the pillow.  I hope she likes it!
