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.
