I would like to flog the person who introduced me to this evil thing called Etsy. An addicting website for handmade goods, it is....
Over the weekend this came in the mail:

I got these zippered pouches from Piddle Loop

This adorable Piddly bag is one of Piddle Loop's newest creations. There is enough space for a small project, such as socks, mittens, etc.

These ingenious Mah-jong stitch markers are made by Yarn Lust. I am having a tough time deciding which one of my WIPs I will adorn with these beauties.

Speaking of WIPs, I am working on this bad boy's other half.

This is the imfamous Yarn Pirate's Cranberry Ice
in Cedarbrook Socks by Wildhorse Farm Designs. The pattern and yarn are Loopy Ewe Sock Club's latest delivery. And speaking of sock clubs, I am anxiously awaiting my Yarn Pirate Booty Club delivery....

I'm back!

Wow. It has been about 6 months since I last posted. Yep, life happens and takes its toll in many ways (not all fun and exciting). All is good now.

Of course, I am known for my bazillion WIPs. So, today I will share a FO that was so quick and easy to complete that I am actually contemplating making more!

This is Hannah used with the handpainted version of Misti Alpaca Chunky. Houston has finally received a splash of cold weather (yep, it was in the 50s when I went for a run this morning). I tested this bad boy out this morning. I must say, it stayed on firmly on my head and was rather warm. It really is a great hat for those of us with long hair. I had some yarn left and I despise the mere thought of wasting good yarn. So, I started this scarf.

The scarf is a simple garter stitch on size 19s. I plan making it extra long so that it can be wrapped multiple times. So, off I go for one more skein to finish. I really do like the way this handpainted chunky yarn knits up!
