Little Purls of Wisdom

A lot of knittting, and maybe a little wisdom.

Um… half my life?! January 21, 2012

It has recently come to my attention that on my 30th birthday (5 years from now, I have time to mentally prepare myself for this), I will have been a knitter for half my life. As it stands I’ve known how to knit for most of my life, but have only considered myself a Knitter for about 10 years. So yeah… talk about a reality check!


Stash Busting… January 17, 2012

I have a plan. It involves a years worth of projects, to culminate as a rather large and fantastic gift for a very good friend. We shall see.

In the mean time, I’ve been knitting a lot (though work gets in the way sometime). There are sweaters, cowls, hats, blankets and socks that have all been started. Some projects have been completed, lots are still in progress.

Malabrigo Arroyo arrived at the yarn store in December, and I am madly in love with this yarn! The colors are beautiful, thought I would like more selection – something closer to the Rios range. It has a great handle, lovely stitch definition, and decent yardage. I’m halfway through a sweater with it at the moment, and can’t wait ti wear it. I suspect it will be pretty warm (I know the Rios and the Worsted are incredibly warm), but I’m hoping for something to wear on a nice fall or spring day. We’ll see!

Happy knitting to all, and good luck in the rain!
