Thinking out loud from 'The Yarn Kitchen' at Skeinz.com where yarn is created, not made.

Back in the Saddle
The first sample balls of Heritage
It's so good to be back! After a few weeks recovering from surgery & am back behind my desk, getting very excited about being back. This morning I have seen the first sample balls of Heritage with their labels, the Boston to Bastille sale has been ticking along in the shop & on the web & Knit August Nights is gathering some real momentum.
The Tunisian Crochet hook was as big as my crutches!
The best thing about an enforced lay off is plenty of knitting & Crochet time. I did cowls, beanies & even a jumper for our new puppy. I also got some Skeinz 'homework' in the form of a rather phallic looking crochet hook made by our Mill engineer & the thickest of yarn you could imagine. So with the guidance of You Tube, I had a crack at Tunisian Crochet. A sort of Crocheted knitting, if that makes sense, but a load of fun to do when your stuck on your arse with your foot up - I'm note sure where this is leading us... but knowing us, it could be anywhere!
