I have a new favorite knitshop

My sister has a new parttime job, which I'm completely thrilled about -

Its a really sweet shop and she's a really sweet sister so I'm just tickled.

From elsewhere on the net

Here's a cute video that's making the rounds
and a story on Tracey Ullman and love for knitting. I wonder if that Baltimore yarn shop was A Good Yarn? They have great curb appeal.

A Fetching Pair?

One of these things is not like the other...

These were intended for a charity auction, but I don't think I can bring myself to redo them. They were a fun easy knit but there are others things I want to accomplish.


I've had a pair of Fetching 98% finished since last weekend. I haven't been particularly busy, I just haven't been willing to finish them.

I think it goes back to the root of my fear of finishing. Once a project is completed my knitting is out there, waiting for final judgement to be passed.

I hoard patterns and my dream To Do list is miles long, but try not to buy yarn without a project in mind.


You might already know this one. I'm terrified of seaming and finishing. I feel like that's the make-or-break moment and it really intimidates me.

10 Knittery Things you didn't know about me, a meme

#1 I don't knit as much as I could and am really impressed by and envious of knitters who knock projects out like crazy.
