Day 3 – going through the yarn stash

So I haven’t been very good about writing everyday but I’ll maybe shoot for every week? While I was on my mini vacation in San Francisco, I had a whole day to discover the city on my own. Of course on my to do list was to find a local yarn shop as there are only two in Anchorage. Lucky me! 10 minutes away was ArtFibers nothing but beautiful hand spun yarns!

My purchase: 600 yards of lace weight CAMUSE yarn, a blend of camel and cashmere. I still don’t have a project but I’m leaning towards a summer shawl. Prior to my purchase, I told myself- no more buying yarn without a planned project! But hey, I was on vacation and there was no way I was going to leave empty handed!
Well I’ve got two basset hounds to attend to.

Puppies + Yarn + Needles = not a very good mix but I am in love with both!

Hopefully next post I will have a project for my lovely yarn!

Day 2 – Malabrigo infinity scarf finally finished!

Didn’t get any knitting done. I was hoping to get the baby blanket I’ve been working on for MONTHS done by this week; don’t think that’s going to happen! But, I did fit in 30 minutes of cardio in and finally blocked the Pont Neuf Infinity Scarf using malabrigo rios- aguas. It took me a while to find the perfect pattern and eventually I gave up and just decided to knit the next infinity scarf pattern I found. Since malabrigo looks completely different (to me at least) on the skein than knitted up, I was a little worried about it looking sock-ish. But here it is! Blocked and pinned, drying on my blocking mats! Hopefully it’s dry by tomorrow morning 🙂



Well hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to finish that blanket, clean out my closet, fit in some cardio and work on the lace infinity scarf I’ve been ignoring for the past month.
