Dillpickle! All the way in Australia! I'll email you for your address and get the yarn in the mail. Thank you for all the ideas readers. One of my favorite new discoveries was Spilly Jane Knits. Have you seen her patterns? Go to Ravelry and check them out. Very entertaining!

I hope all you moms had a great mothers day. e celebrated his 2nd! birthday yesterday. A very fun filled day! I'm glad I have today in the studio to recover, the weekend wiped me out! I hope to be back shortly with some new yarns and colors to show you. Thank you again to everybody that left a comment.

Contest Time!!

Hello, and welcome back to our regularly scheduled programing! Thank you for being so patient about this contest tease! Up for random a drawing is a set of Roy G Biv in pastel, 25g of 7 different colors.
I'm going to draw a name next Monday (5/10), just leave a comment telling me what your idea is to do with the yarn! Pretty easy. One idea might be knitted toys. I saw some at Wool N' Wares out in West Linn out of Rose City and it was so cute! Then Vicki (one of the new owners!) suggested using a brown and orange yarn I'd dyed to make a tiger. Too cute! If only there were a few more hours in the day.

There's has been some knitting around here though. I have no pictures, but I'll snap some for next time. I am happy to report that our house has been pretty healthy this last week and a half (everybody please knock on some wood!). Even my back is starting to feel okay. As long as I don't dye for 8 hours. Which is a bit of a bummer to be honest. The studio is one of my favorite places to be!

I'm going to run away and sit on the couch and knit. I gotta make the best of a toddler nap while I can. Please leave a comment to win some yarn, I'd love to hear all the wild ideas and maybe make something myself!
