Grrr. Where in the hell is that 2.5mm circular I bought? This is the only thing I don’t like about circs–trying to store them. I think I’m going to have to consider getting a binder with plastic sleeves or something. Of course tidying my room and organizing my knitting stuff would work too, but that… Continue reading Grumblings
Well here I was thinking that the photos I took of the socks I’m making in Lisa Souza yarn were going to be sadly outdated by the time I got them up on the blog.

*squees, dances* I got a package in the mail this morning, and it had yarn in it! Yes, the Lisa Souza sock yarn in the “Violet’s Pink Ribbon” colourway arrived this morning and I’m in love. The colours are vibrant and gorgeous, and it’s soooooo soft. I just couldn’t stop touching it or rubbing it… Continue reading Small Victories
