Your bright colors,
your heavenly scent,
makes me sigh with glee.
Each skein I score
A personal victory I win.
Darker skeins, I love you too.
Each skein has a purpose
and that is to be mine.
So I am on a personal mission to own a skein of each colorway of Jitterbug by Colinette Yarns. I am up to 60 something, and there are currently 122 colors available. MUST.OWN.THEM.ALL
This photo represents the collection as of August 10. It has grown since then.

I am wearing a unblocked Bakersfield scarf. Pattern by Picnicknits, it was not scary and so well written.
Proof, I knitted lace. And I have, what 5 more lace projects to go this year. I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it. I think.

What is going on in my world:
Work is picking up, spring time is always busy.
I am spinning a lot, working through the fiber stash. It's so hard to decide what to spin next.
I have a ton of 2nd socks on the needles. I seem to finish a sock, and pick the the needles and cast on for a 2nd sock for a completely different pair. I like that I am working hard on finishing up these sad socks that need a mate.
Lastly, I am going to be adding some links to the blog of some video podcasts of the knitting variety I enjoy. If you have any, let me know, I would love to try some new ones.
