Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Durrow – Sleevey Goodness

Posted by Amber on June 22, 2006

So I figured out why I’ve been falling asleep on the couch every night at like, 8 PM.

I haven’t had coffee after noon in like 3 weeks (since I went to NYC, pretty much).

Today after work I went to Starbucks to work on Durrow. I’m now tired of knitting, and bouncing off the walls.

Speaking of Durrow…

I screwed up the way the cables cross in the 3rd repeat, but I think I can use yarnharlot’s duplicate stitch method to fix them. I will pay more attention to which way the cable crosses for the rest of the sweater!

Also, a man came up to me and was telling me about how when he was growing up everyone, boys and girls, learned to crochet. He mentioned a lot of people think it’s odd for a man to crochet in the US. I said, no, it was pretty cool. Anyway. Then he says to me:
Guy: Where is a good yarn store around here?
Me: Well, in Virginia there’s Knit Happens, in Old Town Alexandria. And my favorite is Stitch DC, there’s one in Georgetown.
Guy: Do they sell Red Heart? I really like Red Heart.
Me: Well, in that case you might really like the AC Moore over in Bailey’s Crossroads…
Guy: Great! Thanks!

Call me a yarn snob, but I think “Good yarn store” and “Sells Red Heart” are mutually exclusive events.
