While I was at Kid n Ewe in November, I bought some Brooks Farm Primero. It’s a 100% kid mohair laceweight yarn with a soft, subtle halo and a vibrant colour that sucked me in. It’s not quite red, not quite pink, but it has a gorgeous deep purple that runs throughout. I knew right away that it would become something for Mum for her birthday. (March 17th…that’s right, I’m behind on birthday knitting for two of three parental units now.) I only bought one skein, so I had to …

Our house in Austin has been a hive of activity since I got back from Minnesota. New replacement windows in our patio room, painting, preparations for the bathroom remodel, phone calls to contractors and landscapers.

I love a short work week. I flew back from Minneapolis Tuesday night, worked for two days and I’m off again today.

Backyard Leaves had been on my to-knit list for almost two years, so I’m …

The Husband sweater is far too big to tuck in a bag for commuter and work knitting, so I’ve been working on a few other projects midweek. Friday afternoon while the IT guy worked on my computer, I finished the first half of a Backyard Leaves scarf. The yarn is Brooks Farm Four Play I bought at Kid n Ewe. It’s a little hard to photograph accurately, but it’s a gorgeous sprucey green semi solid. I love it. I can’t wait to start the second half. I impatiently bought Scarf …

The Daylight Saving time change is coming up which means it’s getting trickier to get the daylight shots I like. There’s simply no time after work, the gym, and an occasional adult beverage to set up a nice photo shoot. I’ve resorted to carting finished objects (ok, object, singular) to work for the finished pics. I didn’t have room in my bag today for the package I received in the One Yard Fabric Swap, but those pictures will be coming up later this week too.
On to the finished stuff! …
