Friday Fun

There aren't many FO's I can share with you these days, so I'd like to share something cool from my crafty friend Lauren, who recently used my Whale Chart for an unexpected endeavor...I would like to present to my dear readers the first-ever "put a whale on it" fuse bead ornament!

It probably won't surprise you to learn that I succumbed to a few Black Friday/Cyber Monday yarn sales. Even if you only read this blog occasionally, I'm sure you've figured out by now that I am incredibly weak-willed when it comes to all things yarn and fiber.

At any rate, my first order showed up earlier this week - another skein of Tundra in Scotia Sea (I want to make the Arctic Circle cowl to coordinate with my mittens!) and the last skein of Swan's Island Organic worsted in the limited-edition colorway, Sugar Maple. I can't wait to knit with it - the color is even prettier in person and it's very soft!

I was also thrilled to finally get my hot little hands on Rebecca Danger's new book, Knit a Monster Nursery. My preorder finally arrived yesterday afternoon, hooray! As though I didn't have enough problems with startitis...

If you were hoping to see some lovely FO's today, hop on over to the Tami's Amis blog. There are plenty of bloggers who will be able to deliver the goods!

  2. How did I not know about that Rebecca Danger book?!?! I am so behind the times... (clearly, as I'm just catching up on my blog reading...)!
