Went to B&N today. Thanks to justpaintedfire for turning me on to the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy! Bought the books, lusted after the Knit Wear mag but passed since it’s $14.99. I am SO going to make that sweater this summer though. Gotta save my pennies. (Can you tell it’s spring break? Spring break = brain candy aka the new Nora Roberts.)
Progress on my Boardwalk Shawl by Sarah Montie Handknits. Also, new Knitters Pride needles!
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the cutest little 2 day old baby Jacob sheep? Photos from our day at the farm taken by my daughter Sarah.
Came home to find this beautiful BLF in my mailbox from the #ontheround destash auction this past weekend. Cannot WAIT to knit it up!
Dun du-dun! More crochetyknitter travels :)
I had A BLAST finally visiting the Yarnover Truck in SoCal!!! Celebrating their first birthday in Burbank with a giant park party, the Yarnover Truck hosted an Anzula Trunk Show alongside oodles of cupcakes, yarn, and happy knitters last weekend. (More on the Anzula in another post)
How can I capture the awesomeness that is the Yarnover Truck in words? I really can’t. This mobile lys would be great just as an unrealized concept. Add the amazing selection of yarn stuffed into the truck and some super enthusiastic and friendly owners, and—voilà!—it’s magical. Since it was their birthday, the Yarnover ladies were insanely generous with gift bags AND door prizes. I’ll do a separate post of my haul.
I’m not really one for public knitting, but it was so delightful to sit around in the park with fellow SoCal needlecrafters and swap yarn stories. Let’s just hope I’m invited to the next birthday!
Happy birthday, Yarnover Truck! <3
I can’t even begin to say how much I love this idea. We need a Yarn Truck at the Jersey Shore!!
