I Love...

Hi Knitters,
Things I love...

I love this cozy. The other day I was running (or slogging: slow + jog = slog) and listening to stash and burn, one of the podcasts I love. Jenny mentioned a small box to hold a ball of yarn, there must be a hole for the yarn to come out or something. This keeps the yarn clean and together in your bag. Then I started thinking about the pear apple (minneola) cozy and how perfect it would be to wrap around yarn in your bag. Sure enough it works like a charm. This may be my favorite use for this so far. Yep, yarn ball cozy. That's sknitches yarn.

Hey, this is the perfect teacher gift for this time of year. You may want to whip a few of these up, I am. I saw this and it actually brought a tear to my eye. I am sappy like that. I was so sad when my kids finished preschool.
I love that the pooling stopped when I alternated strands from the divided skein. Good save. Love the pedi socks, too. That's tofutsies yarn.

I love my new birkies. Yes, I can wear socks and sandals. I am from Madison, for goodness sakes, the place of origin for socks and sandals. Really. I do shave my legs though. I can't go quite that far.

I love my hello yarn. Oh, do I love...

I love the hello yarn goodies that came with my yarn. The little sheep button, the free sock pattern, the personalized card, the tags, I love it all.
I love water balloons in my backyard.
Good knitting.
Good long weekend.
best, susie
p.s. Really do listen to the Stash and Burn podcast. Jenny and Nicole are smart, cute, funny, interesting, true knitters and they stick to topic. I look forward to their podcast to no end. I always listen right away when a new one pops up.
p.p.s. I have played around with the thought of doing my own knitting podcast. I think I might love doing that. Maybe someday I could squeeze it in. Crazy.
