the facts

These birdseye maple floors were trapped under orange shag carpet when we moved in.

A chubby Arctic narwhal in a sweater is a little more than half the size of a skein of English wool, if you include his tooth, he’s bigger.

That’s a bag shaped basket, full of bags. It’s funny, the baskets body has a faux knitted texture, and the bags inside are for actual real knitting.

A small batch, minimal impact English wool.

That little English sheep looks sad.

We needed new footstools, I swear the extra yarn storage was an added bonus. I can fit 62, 100g skeins of wool inside, are you happy now little English sheep?

I store my wool with scented soap chunks, my wool smells flipping amazing.

Kiki weights as much as 81 skeins of English wool.

having a total hat moment

I’m supposed to be making hats for a silent auction (don’t get me wrong, it’s such a great feeling knowing you can make something that someone else would actually pay money for, all while doing good on the behalf of another someone else) but sometimes after making hat after hat after hat you completely lose your mind, and then all of the sudden get distracted by man socks.

..and then you have to take a photo of the soak because your soap looks like melted butter on a gross wool water sink pancake.

In the final rounds admitting to yourself you are so glad to never again have to knit size 13 all black socks with HULK toes and wondering why he doesn’t love super quick hats as much a sloggy handknit socks?
