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.

double stuff

Mittens for Jason: Triple stranding heavy worsted, pulling from inside & outside on 1st cake + inside from 2nd cake = 3 strands.

Mittens for Lex : Triple stranding worsted and chunky, pulling from inside & outside on worsted speckled cake + inside from chunky cake = 3 strands.

(I modified this pattern, using us13/9mm dpns and casting on 20sts for Jason & 18sts for Lex, also custom lengths)

. ..a pair made in an afternoon, which is mind blowing for this slow knitter.. .
