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)

  1. Oh how sad about the potatoes :-( the speckled yarn looks delightful! And the scrunchy cowl is pretty love 💗 You are funny Amanda …adaquate….haha….you are AWesome!!! Silly


    1. No, you’re awesome! For some reason it’s still always a little surprising to me when anything grows, so even the littlest of harvests makes me high five nature …seeing how I usually have a black thumb!


    1. I can’t seem to get enough either, expecially the candy colors! Makes my no more new yarn rule (well, self imposed “suggested” rule ;) impossible to keep! E, Tosh is SO DANG GOOD!!


  2. Oh, that yarn looks just beautiful. And the scarf – perfection. So glad I’m finally going to take knitting lessons. I’ll be happy to finally move beyond the basic knit stitch.
