Me and My Arrows...

As usual, I'm up to my butt in alligators. DD moves into the dorm on Thursday and there's chaos and piles o'crap everywhere EXCEPT FOR ONE PLACE...

Let me explain the arrows in the crappy iPhone photo:

  • The yellow arrow is pointing to my new vertical yarn swift. The nice people from The Oregon Woodworker were letting people demo their swifts at Sock Summit. I saw this bad boy hanging on their booth wall and that was all she wrote. I love it! No more schlepping my swift and ball winder downstairs to the kitchen. 
  • The red arrow is pointing to the Sock Summit tote Donna gave me. Thanks Donna, you're the best!
  • The blue arrow is pointing to the yarn swift bag I bought from Slipped Stitch Studios. They were at Sock Summit too, and had some really great things. The link is to their Etsy shop (and the bag that ran a close second to the geisha-print bag I bought) if you want to check it out. I'm going to keep my original yarn swift in it so it won't get dinged up. It'll be great for travel--you just never know when you're going to need a yarn swift on the road.
  • And last but not least--the green arrow is pointing to something in that one place I alluded to. It's almost ready to be revealed and I am so happy and excited about it I can hardly stand it.
I'm going to have a post-Sock Summit, Empty Nester, and EXCEPT FOR ONE PLACE give-away on Friday. There will be details in the next few days. Stay tuned...


  1. Congrats on the new swift. That looks like pretty tiight quarters to work in.

  2. Interesting swift. I currently have mine attached to a table in my yarn room so I don't have to keep moving it.
    Nice goodies from Sock Summit. And I can't wait to see what is revealed. Is it the book?

  3. Oh fun,a give-away !!! Okay, when I finish writing, I'm going to check out that vertical swift. That does sound interesting. I love your little arrows.

  4. Am I the only one with that song from The Point running through my head? I love Slipped Stitch Studios swift bags. I got the pink pirate one for my swift (it matches my sock project bag).

  5. okay, I'l lbite, again(ho hum) I never win!!!! Oh - box in the mail this afternoon - watch for it ...

  6. Informed my husband I'm signing up for Sock Summit 2013 whenever they make it so that I can-regardless of money, time off, kids, dogs or whatever. I shall remain solid on this topic. LOVE new bags-especially when given by a friend! Can't wait for your secret to be revealed-I'm having all sorts of fun trying to figure out what it is. :)

  7. Marie--you tell him it's a done deal and if he gives you any trouble about it, he'll be dealing with the Jelli. Nobody wants that.

    Vanessa, are you ready?

    Geknitics--I've had that damn song running through my head since I wrote the post yesterday. I was hoping I could get rid of the ear worm by passing it along. No such luck.

A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
