More Bunting to share from Wanderlust O'ahu
This is the last of these posts, I swear! (Well at least until Wanderlust Whistler this summer). Okay, by this point you all know I attended Wanderlust in O'ahu at the end of February. While I was there I camped on the beach, and decorated my site with some...

Fibre Haul from Legacy Studio in Cochrane, Alberta
I had to make sure I snapped some pictures of this before I spun it all up. This week I popped down the highway into Cochrane, Alberta to visit Legacy Studio . Theoretically I was going specifically to pick up a pair of hand combs, but you can't put me into...

Easter Dye LeftOvers
The best thing about Easter, if you're into Dyeing yarn that is, is all the leftover dye in bright colours that's around afterwards. You can usually find egg dyeing kits after the holiday for as little as a dollar. And those kits contain enough acid-reactiv...

Guardians of the Galaxy Crochet
Just thought I'd take a moment to share a pair of projects from February. I worked up this pair for Kevin as his Valentines Day gift. They are baby Groot and Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy. Don't they make a perfectly adorable pair? And FYI, I took the...

If I were to win a copy of this ebook, I would probably knit mystic fire first, looked beautiful! Great review, it's nice to see beautiful close ups of the shawls in the book before purchasing! Thanks!

Sometimes what seems like a mistake can turn out beautiful
This skein came out of yesterday's dyeing session. It absolutely wasn't what I was trying to achieve, but once it dried, it was my favourite of the batch. I may spend many moons trying to recreate it. Yarn is 50g of 100% fine superwash merino, about 150m, a...

Seriously Good Soup - Oak Tree Tavern
This past week, Kevin and I met friends for dinner at the Oak Tree Tavern in Kensington. I had been to the small, second story, pub before, for drinks during Salsa Fest, but never eaten there before. Seriously, I cannot recommend the Oak Tree enough, everyo...

One Seriously Long Week
Thank God it's Friday people. This week has seemed to go on forever! And maybe it's just been because I've been having such long days? Or have had so many meetings scheduled at school? Or because I spent Tuesday and Wednesday with every muscle in my body so...

The Rock I've been Under
Holy tumbleweeds Batman! This blog's been quite for days! So in no particular order let me tell you about the rock I've been under. Spinning the old way, on  drop spindles. You can see the progression I made from the home made CD spindle to nicer spindles a...
