that kind of day started out a little bit wool and cashmere

..leading into loving something that for 95% of the knit, looked like a wonked up rumpled mess (blocking makes me feel so adequate!)

…then fulfilling speckled yarn quota (one)



AMANDA OCHOCKI Potato Harvest 2015…ending with POTATOES!
(we probably got exactly 5 lbs of potatoes from the 5 lbs of seed potatoes we planted (hum) we might be doing something wrong, because breaking even was not the term the potato masters used when schooling us)

food for thought

I make bags all sorts, I also make all kinds of buttony badges for my bags and apparently I don’t mind making two tone linen stitch in lace weight. It seems finishing the 3 year scarf has created a mini obsession in my brain with this stitch. P.S the pulls on that bag are glow jelly yarn and smell like peppermint! (100% the reason why I bought it ..uses are seriously limited!)

Marshmallow Linen

Just because I can never have enough of all of the above,  I am knitting a bag to carry around my knitting (haha) jelly pulls couldn’t handle this, maybe instead I’ll sew in a pink zipper, possibly topped off with a pink moon badge and some inappropriate cross stitching ..I honestly don’t know if I am cool enough to pull off a swear bag or if I even want to be that kind of cool?!? I am 50/50 love hating on this anyways, not sure if the linen stitch is working in this worsted marshmallow looking yarn, it’s more beefy than I would like and almost feels like I’d be caring around my junk in a towel ..heavy.. and I didn’t even think of how gross a white project bag would get :(


Now thinking of actual food and it’s a weird meal! They are especially prone to happen when I am in a snacky mood and want a little bit of everything in the house (or if there is NOTHING in the house). So easy to take it to the next level when you’ve grocery shopped hungry and you’ve bought all kinds of good (or bad depending on how you rate your snacks) eats and the decision on what one thing to have is impossible because you want a little taste of every delicious thing! Thankfully 83% of the time I think of fresh vegetables as yummy snacks, but I have been known to have just a plate of chips or a doughnut hole lunch ..and I’m ok with that :)
