This is mostly a knitting blog. Sometimes pictures of things I've made, sometimes not. I'm a guy who knits, I usually attend a men's stitch 'n' bitch on Monday nights, and I prefer natural fibres to artificial ones. I have a love-hate relationship with bamboo yarns: I love what they can do and how they look, I hate how they are made. I've been knitting since about 2003, though I really didn't get into it until 2005, while convelescing with a broken leg. I must have discovered something good, 'cause I'm still knitting years later.

Two posts in the same week! Two posts on consecutive days! You'd think I was a real blogger!

I was hanging out at Mind's Eye a couple weeks ago, when they got in some gorgeous yarn. I offered to start the sample hat that is in the store to show off how fabulous this yarn is. Here is a picture of the hat.

Isn't that hat gorgous? Doesn't it just grab you? It's Juniper Moon Farms, in the Chadwick line, which is 60% merino and 40% baby alpaca.

Of course, I didn't knit the entire hat.

 Just the ear flaps. But what's really cool is that Lucy (the owner of Mind's Eye) and I knit at the same gauge. Her hat. My earflaps!
