• Because Mad Tosh

    If anything was going to drag me back into blogging it was going to be three skeins of mad tosh.

    It was the one yarn I had never tried. The one yarn I had lusted after for years and never bought. Then I was at a convention for my other job and there was a yarn shop booth across from mine. There was a whole pile of Madtosh sport weight for me to stare at all in colors that I could not refuse. I let the yarn sit for a while because I didn't know what to make with it. I knew I wanted a shawl, but I didn't like any of the shawl patterns I could find. They just didn't work for me so I took Dream Stripes by Caillieau Berangere and changed the striping. I wanted big thick stripes so I could see Mad Tosh's mottled colors.

    I'm tempted to knit a star applique in a pink or a yellow to put at the top of the shawl. We'll see.

    It's nice to have time to knit amongst all the crazy. 

  • Knitting Up a Distraction

    There's only four more days before the election is over. Just ninety-six hours before we know the results. There's only one thing to do.

    Vote.

    You thought I was going to say knitting, right? Well that's helping too. We have some big fights at the ballot here in California, including ones in the city where I live. It's a mess out there people. We're still recovering from 2008 and folks aren't anywhere near back to before they lost everything. The nineties seem so innocent in comparison.

    Here's a better picture of the yarn I'm working with. Love the mottled teals.

    Try to keep it together everybody.

    As much as it feels like this election might solve something, it feels more like it's just another battle finished before the next one.
