New Matter MOD-t, had good news, they were able to get printing down to fine 100 micron levels which was cool, but yeah it's an indie project so we'll see WHEN I get it :P

Pop goes the weasel

(too bad I don't have space for one- or the floor looms I was browsing when I saw this)
This is ideal for the collector of spinning wheels, knitting or fiber related tools. It probably could still be used. Since it is so old I only have had as a display for many years. If the pictures...

Having a hard time making a decision on the next blanket to knit. 

DK/Worsted version- 4 strands of recycled cashmere, this is how I have done my other blankets (log cabin, straight garter, and knit on the diagonal). Takes quite a while to knit and feels a bit delicate, but fluffs up beautifully. Probably a bit better for multi season use.

Bulky- 8 strands, much thicker but faster to knit. Probably won't have the same halo when washed, but will be very warm. Downside- double the yarn (at least), potential to look much more modern/blocky, and will take up a lot more storage space when not in use. Fun how fast it goes though!
(In the pictures, the top one is bulky, lower is Dk/worsted)

+Patrick Lyddy they must be!  I haven't seen any good yarn there is ages either, so maybe other people have caught on.

Note to self- when deciding to make mitts out of a long striped tube you knit, remember that where you divide the tube you will have very short ends from yarn carried up the side (too short to weave in!). Oops.

As part of the #giftalong2014 , many designers are offering 25% off some of their favorite patterns- these mitts by Karen would be a great way to use up some special yarn.

Operation use up yarn- step 1: start by spinning it all together.

Yarn balls as ornaments? Of course. And knitting needles made from toothpicks and beads.  Work guilted me into decorating my office.

Good news for designers selling on Ravelry who are worried about VAT.

These trees would be great for holiday ornament swaps! Quick, and a great way to use up some leftovers.

(The pattern is 25% off as part of the #giftalong2014 !)

Introduction
Unraveling knitting. Currently obsessed with knitting hats in fun textures and unusual color combinations. Sometimes I publish knitting patterns. I live in a house at the edge of a cliff high above the Puget Sound in a small town north of Seattle.
