Must Blog Quickly

So I got up this morning, and no email, IM or phone message saying that Lauren had gone into labor. Sigh, that means I have to blog or I'll get an angry IM from her (never disappoint a very pregnant woman... it's a lot of Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte's to make it up to her. Oh, and here's a recipe for a "home" version, but I'm not sure why you couldn't just make your own simple syrup with pumpkin pie spice?... oh and a grande has 288 calories. Wish I didn't know that, but the good news it's full of calcium. Which is good for Lauren, being an expantant mother and all?).

*cough* Anyway, let's see what to blog about? Knitting. Hmmm, did I mention that Lauren is close to going into labor? 'nuff said.

Wanna see what I've bought on Etsy this week? (have I mentioned I'm completely obsessed with this site? 24/7 arts & craft fair.)

Well, you all saw the beautiful hand dyed yarn from Fearless Fibers, yes?

Well, I made Theresa buy some yesterday (hey, enable is my middle name you know: Cindy Knitting Enable Park). Oh, and I guess I should also mention that I made her buy the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK book and the new Elsebeth Lavold, too. I'm really evil like that. Forcing people to buy knitting supplies.

The problem with Etsy is that it's constantly updated... you can sit there and watch things being added. Dangerous. Really dangerous. I've kept my actual purchases to a minimum (the one skein of yarn, one pendant, one pair of earrings). However, I've got a boatload of stuff I'm watching. No, I'm not linking to those... as I want them!!!!

So I'm working on this and that, Julie and I did some sewing and planning of some tote bags (hmmm, maybe we need an Etsy shop?) and dinner with our friends last night. Not a lot of knitting done. Hopefully that will change today. My hand are itching to get back to my angora cable and lace cardigan (the left front is at armhole shaping).

Just let me know if you need me to make you buy any knitting supplies. You know where I am...

Happy Knitting!!


  1. Cindy, you are so bad! I had never heard of Etsy before and clearly I did not need to know of any more places to buy gorgeous handpainted yarn. :-) Now if only I could come up with some good patterns to use these yarns (that aren't either socks or mitered square afghans.)

  2. you know that's my problem with the handpainted yarns, too. I'm not in love with knitting socks, and I'm a cable knitter, but I soooo love the way the handpainted yarns look. I'm hoping the Diamond Fantasy Shawl works up easily... or maybe not ...heehee
