You never know what knitters can do. Or find. Or think of. it’s insane, really…there are so many random and amazing things that they come up with.
I have found so many cool things that I’d love to show you…but that’d take for forever. So I’ll only share three things :-P
1) Knitted Glass.
(yeah, like…actual *glass*…that’s *knitted*
It’s from like a book by Carol Milne… called Knitted Glass, haha :-P You can go flip through the book HERE (couldn’t get any pictures to actually post :-/) But it’s reallllly cool looking! I’m not sure…how they did it, haha. But, they did. And that’s *so* cool. Holy cow.
2) Yarn Phone Charger.
(mmmhm. A yarn phone charger.)
(Pictures taken from Yanko Design)
It wouldn’t work for my iPhone, but I mean…seriously. a BALL OF YARN?? That’d be SO AMAZING.
and 3) Adventures of a Bored Ball of Yarn by Lorna’s Laces
(Lorna’s Laces is a really amazing yarn company, that makes some of *the best yarn* in the entire world. Just sayin’.)
It’s just too cute. And a brilliant ad for Lorna’s Laces.
Knitting updates: I’ve decided what I’m going to be taking on the plane (well, almost…one is for sure..and another one, I think. But then the 3rd, it’s between two different projects, haha :-P)
Mainly shawls…Ooo, maybe I’m taking four. I forget, haha.
But, so the list is…
1) Herbivore (I looooove Stephen West’s patterns. Holy cow, haha). Yarn is Malabrigo Sock yarn. (*STINKING LOVES THAT STUFF*)
2) To Eyre. Yarn is Cascade 220 that I have left over from something else. In a dark brown. *can’t wait to cast that on*. The inspiration came from the newest version of Jane Eyre, she wore something like that in the movie. Which makes it *that* much cooler :-P
Possibly 3) Traveling Woman. Yarn is Koigu KPPPM in this amazing navy. (which makes me SO HAPPY to knit with it. Cause…I got it at Hannah’s store, Creative Fibers ^_^. It reminds me of happy things, haha :-D) (I actually started this awhile ago, but I took a break from it…came back..and messed something up, haha. Majorly. So I ripped it out, and I’m going to try again :-P paying more attention this time, haha)
Possibly 3) Featherweight Cardigan (it’s the first picture). Yarn is Cascade Alpaca Lace. (another one that I started, did a lot on. Took a break. Came back…did a lot. Took another break. And now I wanna finish it, haha :-P Finally, haha.)
Countdown till Europe: 3 days
