Check out the awesome work our friend Mike has been doing. In addition to all his usual graphic design awesomeness, he’s now selling enamel pins. That glow in the dark, no less. This little lizard made its way into my shopping cart without even a second thought. View in Instagram ⇒

Lookie lookie what came in the mail! Because I’ve started using my wheel again, I decided to invest in some good quality fibre. I’ve heard really great things about Crown Mountain Farm‘s wares, and had been thinking of ordering from them for a few months, so I figured I’d give them a try. I’m extremely […]

I’ve noticed that a few of the blogs I follow (thank you Google Reader) have been doing 10 on Tuesday, so figured I’d jump on board and give it a shot. This week’s 10 are all about the Farmer’s Market 1. Fresh Produce: After being a SPUD subscriber, I have to say that I do […]

I was pleasantly surprised today by our local Michaels. There is usually one small aisle of yarn, and a bit of pegboard with some notions on it. A few months ago, I recall them posting signs indicating that they were going to upgrade the section of yarny goodness. There’s a heck of a lot more […]

Him: “Something squooshy came for you in the mail.  I’m thinking it is either yarn or a puppy” Me: “OooOooo! I hope it’s yarn…coz dead puppies aren’t much fun!” Yep.  That was the conversation (via text message) this morning.  I am glad to say, it wasn’t a puppy.  Instead…I got yarn! My order from Three […]

Surviving the Mall

Surviving the Mall

Aside from the weird colours of “plaid” displayed at the local Tommy Hilfiger shop, we found this sweater that had to boldly assert the fact that it is, indeed, fair-isle.  WTF? Seriously, if the husbeast wasn’t already aware of what Fair-Isle knitting was, this would stump him.  I can see men all over the world […]

It’s that time of year. We braved the mall yesterday, and did quite a bit of Christmas shopping. The adults aren’t quite so difficult to shop for once you start tweaking onto them.  It’s the kids. You’d think that the kids would be easy to shop for…when I was their age, I wanted half the […]

So, we went to the mall to get someone some new pants and wound up in the Christmas section. Yeah.  That one went out on Twitter with a caption of “If you complain once more, you’ll meet an army of *me*”.  Though the “me” was misspelt.  Dratted predictive text. But yes…we found pants.  Pants are […]

The Husbeast and I went for a nice long walk in downtown Calgary on Saturday.  We went to Mountain Equipment Co-Op, Pudding Yarn, Reids Stationery, Steeps tea & the general indoor mall (Banker’s Hall/TD Square).  Along our ramblings we found the following gem of a notebook.  Unfortunately, we didn’t pick it up.  We had too […]
