i found more vintage yarn thrift shopping, the cone is rayon and silk, there is a stamp inside indicating this, and also another stamp that says crafted with pride in the united states, it's so soft! the white yarn is made in kentucky, and it made me laugh since rose and matt went there when they left here, it's matt's home state. the kentucky yarn is made with rayon and lurex, it's sweet, i'm glad to have found both of these. equally exciting was the discovery of danish pottery! on it are charming drawings of houses and trees and boats, a village, i want to visit there! the children's toys are irresistible, the tiny pitcher because i couldn't put it down and i wish i could share the game of cards, show every one. the illustrations are SO utterly adorable, each one is a little work of art.
there is a new addition to my knitting basket that's isn't wool, it's the indigo blue leather tool pouch from fringe supply co. handcrafted by stitch & hammer. already in constant use, either as a knitting helper or a clutch around town. love this! the pretty pouch can be found here.
my blog turns five next week. i've been thinking how i can say thank you, your words and kindness, your friendship and inspiration, have been among the best gifts i've ever received in my life. i hope you are loving your knitting or making or just dreaming of... the beautiful future. :)
