Shortly after I started knitting my Buttoned Wrap Skirt this past weekend, I psyched myself into a random yarn panic. I tend to do this to myself sometimes, especially when the yarn I’m using is no longer obtainable.

Well, our temperatures are cooling down, the days are getting shorter, and our outdoor flower season is coming to an end. The planters and hanging baskets are gamely hanging in there, though not much is still growing. What is there is pretty cheerful, though!

I couldn’t resist these Universal Monster stitch markers from FanGirl Fibers 🙂 I also ordered a Halloween countdown set of My Favorite Murder stitch markers from her, but they aren’t going to ship until closer to mid-October. I also got a very cool… Continue reading Spooky Mail
Just being a glamorous mermaid and stuff. You know – NBD 🙂
The socks continue. There’s a bit more of them than there was the last time I posted about them, though not as much as I had hoped there would be. I was focusing on a different project this weekend, which I will post more about tomorrow! Are you working on any socks? If so, how… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Black Hole Socks Continue
