Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Yes, I Still Knit!


Today was laundry and cleanup day.  You’d never know it to look at the house right now.  My reward between projects was a few minutes of spinning.

I do have a knitting project that I’m loving!  I worked on it while I was at my retreat because the bottom was stockinette.  Then I got to this part.

It’s a free pattern from Berroco called Remember.  Mine looks a little different than the pattern, because I’m using Noro Silk Garden.  I just love this yarn.  The colors are much softer than the photo.  If I take a photo after 4:30 in the afternoon, it’s going to be dark!  That means I don’t get a very good picture.

I may have also started something else last night when I was supposed to be asleep.

I’m on my third bobbin of my lastest spinning project.  It’s going to be a three ply yarn, so I’m close!  I may be staying up late tonight!

Christmas decorating is slowly being done also.  Last year I didn’t even decorate because we were apartment hunting and moving The Genius to Georgia.  It was well worth it!!!  So, this year, we will decorate!  My Hero is crabbing about decorating before Thanksgiving.  Thats ok, because he grouches about once a year.  Besides, I’m ignoring him!!!

Gotta go!  My parents are coming tomorrow and I need the guest room to look better than it does now.  They’re going to freeze.  It was well over 75 degrees in Texas today and when they’re here it’s going to go below zero.  Yes, that’s fahrenheit!!!

Time to get out the hand knit socks.

  1. Your Remember is absolutely gorgeous! I really love the way it looks in the Noro.

  2. I love how Remember looks in the Silk Garden! I’m using SG to knit the Lanesplitter skirt from Knitty – I had never used it before, it’s great! Enjoy! 🙂
