|Checking out the neighbor's yard.|
I haven't reported on the Portland Yarn Crawl www.portlandyarncrawl.com/, but it was a great success. We visited 11 of the 20 yarn stores in the Portland area. We didn't have any luck winning the raffles but we did come home with some really cool yarn and some new spinning fibers.
|This was in the free gift bag we got for being one of the first 20 people to visit Knit Purl in downtown Portland.|
I've already started a "linen stitch" scarf out of this. Remember, if you want to see how to do the linen stitch, there are videos on Youtube.
I just finished this purple linen stitch scarf made out of Koigu KPM.
I also just finished my first pair of socks in about three years. I love the self striping in this yarn. I got the yarn at The Yarn Garden in Portland.
|Love those stripes!!!|
|Both are from Abstract Fibers.|
Lastly, I signed up to be a part of a public art installation in Portland called, "You are the Chosen One." This will be a mural made of 100 knitted squares measuring 12X12. The mural will read, "You are the Chosen One." www.youarethechosenone.com/ Check out their site if you would like to be a part of the project. I will be knitting the letter "O" in the word "You."
Happy Saint Patrick's Day and don't forget to wear green.
