watch this space

i'm planning to have a huge destash sale soon. the yarn and the fabric are taking over my life. i need to get rid of it so i'm planning to put up a bunch of things for sale over the holiday weekend.

i'm up to the second sleeve of bpt. i forgot to take a photo. i've been shopping for separating zippers, but i'm not sure if i should get metal or plastic. the metal ones tend to only come in black or white. if i have a white zipper, is it going to look tacky? is white better than the wrong shade of green? i'm conflicted. naturally.

i lost my head and bought 5 balls of muench touch me to make vintage velvet from scarf style. my lys was having a special. it was a good special, but not a great special. this is sort of what brought me to my senses about the destash thing. here's my progress so far. i'm almost through the second ball of yarn.

Vintage Velvet from Scarf Style

i hate yarn that comes wrapped around cardboard. my cats chase the balls and let them roll all over the floor. the yarn is very nice, though. i once read it described as "the cadillac of chenilles." i found this very humorous. the scarf will go nicely with my pink winter coat.

  1. I don't think a white zipper will do at all. You can't find a close green?
