  1. Loved the episode Jadee. You can tell you're feeling much better from your cold, you were much more talkative,which is good. As for the yarn salvage....well girlfriend there's just some yarn that's just not worth trying to save and does better being put out of its misery!I noticed it kept breaking while you were trying to rip not worth it. Have a nice and happy week too and will be waiting for your next installent:o)

  2. hey Jadee! Thanks for the mention and critique. My first experience with homespun was crocheting scarves for my mom and sister. It was horrible but I always thought it was because I was so new to crochet. Nope. I think it was because homespun is difficult to work with. And I found that it would tangle and wrap around itself and tearing back was incredibly difficult. Ugh.

    Saw the finished hat on Plurk and it looks great!

  3. Fabulous job on the candy corn socks! I ♥ your hand dyed Plymouth Happy feet sock yarn and cannot wait to see what you knit up with it!
