<p>So I need to knit a hat for The Day. It needs to be washable. Okay, I thought, I’ll give Wool-Ease a shot. </p>
<p>Bad thought.</p>
<p>I’ve never tried this <strike>squeaky, nasty cheap-ass</strike> yarn<sup>*</sup> before and probably won’t ever again. If it didn’t need to get thrown in a washer, trust me, this Cascade 220 gal would be hot-footin’ it to her nearest <span title="Local Yarn Shop" class="serendipity_glossaryMarkup">LYS</span>.</p>
<p>Maybe it’s the needles.</p>
<p>I’ll be stopping at the LYS on my way to drop <span title="My daughter (The Teen)" class="serendipity_glossaryMarkup">Dobby</span> off at her father’s to get a nice set of Addi’s and we’ll see if that fixes the problem.</p><p><img width="110" height="83" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/woolsleeze.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></p><p /><hr width="100%" size="2" /><p><sup>*</sup>I’m really sorry if I’ve offended any Wool-Ease users. Maybe it’s the needles or maybe I’ve got a bad skein of it but it’s splitting and sqeaking and making me a little crazy. This is also the first time I’ve used the wooden Clover DPN’s in a loooong time so it could be that.</p><hr width="100%" size="2" />Update: the freakin’ LYS was freakin’ closed. ’nuff said.<br /><p /><p>

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
