back to black

The big boys took off and life is (kinda) back to normal.

Yarn is everywhere.

I like it this way.

I have been making scarves for the Hip Stitch Craftshow this coming Saturday, they seem to be popular, I certainly think they are cool. - Gotta make stuff that you dig yourself, right?!

This one is my favorite:

I don't like black, and I hardly ever wear it. However, this scarf is different, because one of the yarns comes with a story.

The black yarn with the colorful fringes, has a history of being in my stash for almost 10 years.

I bought it with my dear friend Ulrike in the yarn store in Bethesda. I so remember us digging in the sales bins and coming up with just two balls of this fringy stuff in two colorways. One, the not-black-at-all one, I used years ago in Fiona's poncho, outgrown by now.

Please note the glow-in-the-dark homemade buttons!

Sweet memories!

I have yet to show you a special edition of my zippered pouches, finished a few days ago. - I made this for my apple gadget loving boy:

Cool japanese cotton-linen blend fabric, vintage polished zipper, lined with thick camou fleece.

All set.
