Kureyon Air and Sunsets

Hello friends! Saturday is starting very foggy here on the coast. I hope it is lovely and not too hot where you are.

I recently bought some Kureyon Air from Little Knits in Seattle. Little Knits is a good store in that it always has close outs of yarn at good prices---you generally can't find every yarn in every color, but the ones you find are priced well. Anyway--I saw that this bulky yarn was on sale at a good price and I was thinking that I'd like some quick knit yarn, and Kureyon Air does the job. It is bulky but light (it is almost like pencil roving) and it isn't splitty.

I knit the Perky Little Hat for me. It went really really fast--maybe two or two and a half hours to knit the hat. And it was a fun knit. I had some yarn leftover so I vamped a pair of fingerless mitts. I basically knit a flat piece of knitting and then did a seam (I knit the thumb part first, then cast on additional stitches for the hand part). I have pretty small hands and I still have a tiny little ball left. I'll knit more of these (hats) as they will make good gifts or for charity knitting.

My new paper obsession is mulberry paper. This is a thin and pretty type of paper that can be 'torn' and shredded. The colors are beautiful. This is a card I played around with yesterday. 

And now, a summary of our coastal weather! This might have been the most amazing sunset yet.  No filter, believe it or not!

Fog is interesting too. 

Last night's sunset was subdued but did not disappoint. 

Enjoy Saturday!

The mulberry paper intrigues me. Off to Google I go.

Wow, you have the best sunsets!
When I was a scrapbooker, I loved mulberry paper. It lends so much texture.

Your ROCK sunset is amazing!!! I find capturing those true colors in pink very difficult to do. GOOD job.
I love your fingerless. My first pair was similar in structure and I wore them out

I had to come back....that paper is so so cool! I may have to get some! It looks recycled

Your paper project is wonderful, I'd love to know more about the process. Wonderful knitting and beautiful sunsets, thank you for sharing.

Love your sunset photos! The torn paper media was a favorite of mine-I used to make my own paper--maybe that could be your next craft! Nice job on the knits, too!
