Little Purls of Wisdom

A lot of knittting, and maybe a little wisdom.

California love May 24, 2008

I got back from Cali on Tuesday night after a week of sun, dogs, sea lions, wine and fun. Needless to say, I loved it. I flew into San Francisco last Tuesday and stayed with my aunt about an hour out side of the city. We went to Sonoma, did water aerobics (with lots of old lades, but it was fun!), saw movies, played with her dogs, went to Berkley and the city, and spent a day going to Monterey, Carmel and 17 mile drive. Google it. It’s beautiful.

While in Berkley we went to Stash. A cute little yarn store with lots of beautiful sock yarns, even some dyed only for them! Of course I bought some.

The colorway is Orange Spice. It’s adorable. Dyed just for the store. Apparently they have more colors, but this was the last skein, hiding in the back corner behind lots of other sock yarn. This yarn was the whole reason for going to Stash, so it was meant to be.

These are Shi Bui knits sock yarn, and I love them! This picture isn’t true to the color at all. In person it’s a much richer color of teal, and beautiful. I can’t wait to make these socks. I don’t know what pattern I’m going to use yet, but I’ll figure it out.

I’ve got a ton of projects going on how. Mainly birthday socks, but there’s also a mystery brown thing that I’ll post pictures of later. Good times, really. Time for me to get back to knitting the far too many things I need to finish ASAP. Have a good Memorial Day weekend and HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY!!!!


The 3 “S”s – Socks, Shoes, Summer May 9, 2008

It’s true, I am done with me junior year of college… let’s not talk about having only one more year left. In other news:

I finished my roommate’s socks

pretty, yeah? They’re a “happy very late birthday present/thanks for being such a great roommate!” present. I’ll mail them this week cause we left school before I finished them. Oh well.

So, I have a thing for silly shoes and anything that is inspired by Victorian fashion. Well, my mom and I were at the salvation army last night and I found a pair of shoes that I fell in love with:

Aren’t they amazing?!!?! They’re Diesel brand, and sooo cute. Pretty comfy, too. My mom asked me when I would I wear them. I responded with “when will I NOT wear them?!?!?” I’m in love.

Oh, and go watch Enchanted cause it’s cute. For now I’m reading books for fun rather than for school. YAY!

so, i’m almost done with finals. Luckily they haven’t been that bad this year. I move out on wednesday, and so the last summer before college is over begins. EEK! In other news, I have pictures of a lot of knitting. I’ve finished some things, some are presents and some are just for fun. I don’t feel like taking the time to explain what they are, so here they all are in random order. Enjoy!
