New starts

  1. Haruni shawl: I felt the urge to knit some lace. Haruni has been on my list for practically forever. i wound my 2ply jacob handspun and got through Chart 1. it's going smoothly so far, but i have some other things to finish first so this will be put aside for awhile.
    Started a new shawl #haruni
  2. Custom Embroidery Pillow Cover: It's been awhile since I've done any embroidery. I'd almost forgotten how enjoyable it is. I bought some frixion pens at my LQS last night. on my test, the ink did disappear immediately when ironed but came back faintly when i stuck my sample in the freezer. it went away again with another iron. I figure it's pretty safe for embroidery, since the ink will be covered by floss anyway, plus a pillow cover is unlikely to be out in the cold for long. i'd be more hesitant to use it on clothing or quilts.

Yardage progress

That something just might involve these lovelies
I splurged at my lys sale #villageyarn&fiber

My LYS is having their anniversary sale this week. i got some yarn to make my niece a cardigan, hat, and mittens, some sock yarn for Spicy, 4oz of local shetland, plus a skein of madtosh pashmina just for me.

Gonna try out the frixion pens #lqs

In addition to the yarn and quilt shops, East Rochester is basically Craft Central. There's also a bead shop, a weaving shop, and a tapestry shop all in the same complex with the quilt store, and the yarn store is across the street. i should really go more often. At the quilt shop, I got a yard of rainbow stripe cotton couture to use for binding and a half yard of a crossword fabric. i wanted to pat myself on the back for my restraint.

FYI: I'm rounding to the nearest 1/8th of a yard to keep the math simplified. i only count yards used per week from finished projects. Scraps don't count, because...well, they're scraps.
Used this week: 4.5 yds
Yards acquired: 5 yds
+/-: +7.285 yds


  1. Nice fabrics. I need to get one of those pens! Your embroidery looks very cool.

  2. I have many of those pens, love them!

  3. Loving your Christmas quilt! Do you mind if I pin it for inspiration?

  4. Your socks are so awesome!

    Love the beginnings of the shawl---you are sure talented.

    The words you are embroidering look very fun!

  5. What is this WIP-it Wednesday?!? It sounds like I need to be involved. My WIP's, particularly my unfinished sock pile, are completely out of hand.

    Love your recent purchases! That embroidered pillow is AWESOME. I would like to do something similar with Archer quotes.

  6. OMG THE EMBROIDERY!!! KOKKA KOKKA KOKKA! The recipient of that pillow is very lucky person. Add some never nude and "Marry me!" - a couple of my favorites. Cheers and happy WIPing!

  7. Yay for your sock finish!! I actually really like the scrappy look of your Christmas quilt.
