Vintage ironing board. I have wanted an ironing board for my craft room and found this one tucked in a corner deep behind a wall of bedspreads. Works beautifully, seems sturdy, and only cost $3.00. #happygirl

ShannaBanana makes me Happy!

My next chapter involves spinning. Shanna gave me this fabulous roving (which I have no pictures of because I popped it on my wheel in fast time)!
Anyway, here is the yarn made from Shanna's namesake (hand-dyed roving by Funky Carolina).

Hummmmm, now what pattern shall I knit? Suggestions? About 400yds of sock wgt.

Farewell Sweet Shop

As most of you know, Knit Picky closed her doors September 30, 2012. This beautiful bouquet was waiting for me at home on my very last day in the shop. Of course, i held it together until I found this with an amazingly sweet card. Thank you Zach & Melissa! Also thanks to Steve & Zoey. And to all of the KP gang. I couldn't have done it without you! Lots of love, Jo, off to the next chapter.

Double Punch Days this Weekend at Knit Picky!!

This Friday & Saturday, in honor of the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics, we're giving you DOUBLE punches on your purchases.  I'm still drawn to this simply elegant and easy pattern and will start mine tonight.  The Age of Brass & Steam is a free pattern by Orange Flower on Ravelry.  It is beautifully knit with beads and would be a great, easy project to knit during the Olympics, don't you think??

Stop in today or tomorrow from noon-4pm to select your perfect yarn and coordinating bead pack.  Don't forget your tiny crochet hook to add the beads.  Please post a comment here if you choose to start this project or any other project during the summer Olympic games.  As they say....Let the Games Begin!!
