Yarn Love =) [Nov. 9th, 2005|06:31 pm]

I must have been a cat in a past life, since I love yarn so much. Last night, my dad & brother dragged me to the automotive supply store...which was actually fortunate because I found a yarn shop next door!
So, I just had to go back there today. The name of the store is Knitique (8741 Elk Grove Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95624). They had a really nice selection of yarn, projects...if you live in Northern California, you have to check it out!


Below are the things that I bought. 3 skeins of Noro's popular Kureyon yarn in #102. Wow, the colors are intense! It feels a tad scratchy, but that's okay since I'll be using it for felted bags. Can you say Booga Bag? ^_~

I knit a little camera cozy today using Crystal Palace Yarn's "Kiddo" in the Spring Picnic colorway, mixed with two strands of fuzzy pastel yarn from Target. The Kiddo yarn is 100% microfiber and is incredibly soft to the touch.

Cast on 24 stitches, knit stockinette in the round for the length of the camera, then cast-off 12 stitches. Knit the flap in stockinette and cast off. I'm going to add a button later.

I love yarn also. Especialy the soft, pastel baby yarn. When I learn how to knit/crochet I'll actualy get to use it.

The pastel yarn is actually pretty easy to knit with. It's just those darn eyelash yarns that are tricky...it's hard to see the stitches with all that fuzz!

Ahhhhh...knitting isn't too hard to learn. I've forgotten a few times myself. ^_~
www.knittinghelp.com is a great site to re-learn knitting.

Crochet is cool too. Sometimes, I think it's more relaxing than knitting. ^_^
