Anyone remember this yarn? Well it’s a shawl now, finally. I am so very happy with how it turned out. And unlike the indoor pictures of the fiber and yarn, the shawl pictures are actually colour accurate! (Rav Link)

The bamboo gives it such a beautiful shine, without being, you know, High Visibility Vest shiny. And I really like the colour. You maybe could guess that I tend towards the really bright, sometimes obnoxious, yellow, green, orange, and nerdy sort of things.

So grey wouldn’t be my thing, right? Apparently not! I think it would look nice with most of my hats. Not that I get to wear 2 knitted things at once out and about too often. But maybe one day!

New stuff up at the shop! All handspun for this batch.

An awesome blue chain ply, the very best green in bulky, an amazingly bright orange (seriously, it’s hard not to keep this one).

And finally, a new thing I’m trying - Gradients! The teal is up for sale, but the pink isn’t. It was the best go (which is why it’s such a basic colour job), and I’m in the process of knitting into a sample hat!

The latest figures from the Indiegogo and official Project For Awesome website. It’s only been the Project For Awesome for 43 minutes and we’re already over $207,000 in total. FRENCH THE LLAMA.

This is my second year participating in the P4A, and it’s absolutely amazing how much money has already been raised for charity. The power of nerds, people, it’s unmatchable. <3

New fiber up today! Going to be putting a couple handspun up soon too, I just need to actually spin them first! One is the brightest orange that ever oranged, so look forward to that!

Minecraft and Harry Potter are today’s general themes.

Hufflepuff Pride, Ravenclaw pride (obvious where I got the ideas from, eh?)

Londinium, Algae at Low Tide, and Candy Bowl (no real specific motivation for these colours other than ‘ooh, pretty’)

and lastly, Fallen Leaves, and Grass Blocks.

Fallen Leaves was supposed to be a mineshaft theme, but I mixed the colours off memory and of course lava in-game is completely not that red. Not even a little. Whoops. Let’s pretend I use a texture pack or something, okay? Okay. Pretty happy with Grass blocks, although we’ve sort of got …mixing of biome shades going on in the green tones.

Some handspun I’m going to knit!

This was leftover bits of my Merino/Bamboo stash, so only about 100 grams. So it’s getting knitted up as a sample/shawl for me to keep and love for ever.

Not for sure set on a pattern, but I’m thinking Holden would be pretty. I need to work on the pickle jar shawl I’ve had on hold for ages now first, though. Maybe today I’ll get back to that….

New fiber! I didn’t mean to dye fall colours, but it is actually fall, so I think that’s alright.

We’ve got Princess Peach, Root Beer Float (my favourite), and Orange Slices.
