Let me go on…

(Finish the post title, if you like the Violent Femmes, to get the joke)

I am Swedish, Irish, German and English, or as I refer to them collectively: “the pale peoples of Europe.” I should not go near windows in the summertime. And yet I thought it would be a good idea to dye yarn outside on an overcast day.

WRONG.

Eliza dared me to name one “Blister.” There she is. There’s two named after Eliza as well. I’m busily uploading them to the Stitch Cleveland Etsy shop. (Soon, we’ll have an online shop proper at the Stitch Cleveland domain but it’s not quite ready for prime time yet, since yours truly is the one coding it). There will soon be 25+ skeins uploaded, so keep your eyes peeled.

My problem? Sometimes there are skeins that turn out so perfectly, I cannot bear to sell them. Here’s three. Left to right: being knitted into socks, becoming a sweater, on its way to being a shawl.

Hey shawl knitters — anyone have time to get one done for me pre-Rhinebeck? Email admin [at] this domain if you want to knit with this lovely stuff — superwash merino all — and get credit / paid for it.

Shannon – if you haven’t found anyone to knit the shawl yet, I would probably have time for it. I only have 1 order that I am working on, everything else is…well, some of them have been ‘in the works’ for a number of months, so what is a few more days, weeks, months, between me and my knitting projects? Do you have a particular pattern that you want? Just let me know. I would LOVE the opportunity to work with that yarn – it looks fabulous!

Those are lovely. I’d hate to part with them to.

Hey Grrlll…. I, too, might be interested in knitting up a shawl, depending on the timeframe needed and complexity. Still looking for that KAL handspun sweater ;)

Good Great Nite to you!
