I’m still actively participating in the year of making project (though I’m pretty bad about tagging properly in flickr, so I suggest following my instagram account). Today I thought I’d round up some of the items I knit and crocheted since returning from Indianapolis and TNNA.
A good friend’s daughter was born a bit early this week, so I knitted a quick little beret for her. She and her mum and dad are doing well and I hope to hear she outgrows it soon in health and happiness.
I’m also finally past whatever block was delaying a crochet design. Now I’m trying to find extra moments in the day to work on it. The yarn is the very lovely Milky Way from Anzula Luxury Fibers (received at TNNA in 2013!).
Despite my love of Tom Bihn products, I wasn’t that into my Yarn Stuff Sacks, preferring box bags. Since the arrival of my Little Swift, I’ve been using them more frequently (mostly because the projects residing in my box bags are being ignored). I can say that I now like them for smaller quick projects and storing the extra yarn for larger projects. I see more YSS and possibly a TSS or two in my future. Though one day I hope to finally decide on a new box bag.
afghans for Afghans is specifically collecting wool baby hats and socks for ages newborn to one year during the month of June. Questions? Please visit their site. Note: please do not send preemie hats.
Many of my friends run small businesses that are in some way related to yarn. I’d love to mention them all. That would be a very long, link heavy post. Here are three, because well, A, B, C…
Anzula is looking for contributions to their indiegogo campaign to make their yarn factory even cooler. How do I mean? Dye pots are hot. They’d really love to invest in a proper HVAC system to keep their employees safe and cool.
Disclaimer: Anzula is incredibly supportive of indie designers. They provided even me with yarn support after I met with them this summer at TNNA. I’m finalizing those designs and hope to release them soon, below is a preview of one in their beautiful Haiku. Their yarns are divine and I enjoy working with such wonderful yarns and people.
