2. Myriad stealth projects.

Okay, So There Was a Little Yarn

Remember the pile o’ packages from Monday’s post?

There was a little bit of yarn in one of them:

The green is Madeline Tosh Lace — (colorway called “Grove”) .It’s 100% merino (superwash) with 950 yards per skein.

The variegated is their Pure Silk Lace, which is 100% tussah silk and has 1000 yards/skein. The colorway is “Wren.”

I have purchased these yarns purely for research, honest. icon wink Okay, So There Was a Little Yarn

Flippin’ Burgers!

I found out that there is a bonus video from the creators of the Polymer Clay Cookbook — how to make burger charms! Watch and learn:

Still plenty of time to enter the book giveaway — see yesterday’s post.

Oklahoma, OK!

I’m off to Oklahoma City tomorrow for a weekend of fun at SWAK in the City. I’ll be teaching toe-up sock toe and heel techniques, but will also be debuting my new class on things to do with leftover sock yarn. Here are a few of the things you can do:

No blog post tomorrow or Sunday, but I’ll be back Monday. See you then!

“How can you go away and leave this?”

Thursday

Who needs a clever title, eh?

I left the True Love Stole at home today. It’s hot and humid here, so not having piles of cashmere draped on my lap on the train seemed like a good idea. It was a good idea — they apparently have turned the air conditioning off on the trains.

This is what I did on my commute.

Cute little devil, isn’t he? Here he is with his buddies . . .

These little guys are prep work for a workshop I’ll be teaching late in October  at SWAK in the City in Oklahoma City (see this page for more information) — What to Do With Leftover Sock Yarn. Should be a fun class!

But this weekend, I’m heading down to Virginia Beach to KnitWits for fun and classes. Since the last time I was in Virginia Beach was when I was around 4 years old, it is about time I went back, don’t you think?

I’m leaving early tomorrow morning and returning home Sunday afternoon. Depending on my mood and state of exhaustion upon my return, I may not blog until Monday.

So have a good weekend!

Lucy is not sure how she feels about having me away this weekend . . .
