Exciting Things are Afoot


The day I've had circled on my calendar is almost here - YarnCon is this Saturday! I've got three new patterns releasing in conjunction with the blessed event - and while I don't want to spoil the surprise just yet, I can show you a few sneak peeks (be sure to check back this Friday, when all will be revealed!):

I grabbed coffee with my pal Sam from The Wool Dispensary last week, and received my Kickstarter rewards - an awesome limited-edition poster print and official Wool Dispensary project bag! If you missed out on funding their launch via Kickstarter (and reaping such rewards as have been bestowed on yours truly), I'm told they'll have project bags and posters for sale at YarnCon ($3.50 and $10, respectively).
 So wait - what's that on the needles?  Just a little colorwork sock featuring the leftover skein of Useful Stimulant in Circus Popcorn, that's what!  The main color is some Fortissima Socka I got in a swap (which means it's been in my stash for at least 3 years - maybe longer!  I quit swapping eons ago when I realized I could take the money I spent on postage and goodies and spend it on buying myself something pretty).  I love the way the vibrant yellow of Circus Popcorn looks with the dark, slightly-heathered grey! 
My favorite feature of the project bag is the side pockets - perfect for notions, pens....or adorable hitch-hikers.


  1. I love "Circus Popcorn"!

  2. Me too! It's the first yellow I've ever fallen in love with - The Wool Dispensary rocks!
