New Yarn Related Discoveries

One of my recent discoveries is Design Seeds, found with a bit of aid from one of my Facebook friends. Every day I receive an e-mail with not only one stunning photo and a color swatch to match, but two. It does feel like receiving a dose of color each day, often in combinations I have previously not considered. My own color wheels are spinning, and I feel like an addict to these color matches. It is free, and all you have to do is add your e-mail address. Where – you ask – here is the website: Below is one of the palettes I have not previously considered and found very delicate. One of the series is called Mental Vacation and offers just that…

I have also found a new online knitting shop – not very difficult, I admit – after realizing that I need more Madeline Tosh DK, I checked WEBS – America’s yarn store – see yarn, which I know to be efficient and speedy with their orders, just to realise they did not stock the shade I had chosen. Designer Vera Sanon asked where do you buy your yarn in her group on Ravelry, and received lots of answers in addition to the local yarn shop, one suggested Eat. Sleep. Knit – brilliant name, I thought –  and to my surprise recommended by a fellow Norwegian! In addition to a marvelous selection of yarn including Handmaiden and Shibui Knits, they have a speedy delivery, and a very reasonable shipping charge; which is discounted when you order for more than $ 75 (read: not hard to reach that amount): 12 oz/340 g deducted from your shipping weight on international orders. My order is on its way to me! Now, here it is: eatsleepknit

I would also recommend you read Kuduja’s excellent blog post “On various kinds of ribbing”, see kuduja. You will find my opinion there among others and do look at some of Anna’s excellent designs!
