The Reckoning

I finally decided I needed to get my crafting life in order.  Since I took up spinning my stash has increased and space is at a premium. So, all yarn pictured and entered into Ravelry, unloved stuff gone, unwanted projects frogged or re-homed. 

Kits on the top shelf and sock yarn on the bottom.

Fiber on the top shelf, lace weight yarns bottom right with dk and worsted on the bottom left.

More spinning fiber.

Weaving yarns.

Gratuitous loom shot.

Knitting Addiction

There is a fabulous yarn store in the Outer Banks.  Knitting Addiction moved into a new store and now is even more special.  It combines great inventory, friendly owner and staff and a spacious store with comfy areas to sit and knit.  We have been here four days and I have been there twice.  I think I may have to go back tomorrow!

The shop cat Purrl.

Mile marker 4.5, do not miss this shop!



We traveled over to the Outer Banks on Monday.  It is exactly 360 miles and six hours from our house in Statesville to the house we rented in Kitty Hawk.  Here are the highlights in pictures.  It is now Thursday night.   My lace project has kicked my arse and I had to walk away!

Purl and Penny are introduced to the beach.
My Almost Murphy (Sapphire) to Manteo socks finally finished!

What do you do when it rains at the beach; knit, do jigsaw puzzles and nap.


The lace in progress.
