Today in the Jimmy Beans Craftvent for day 16, we get more Manos del Uruguay Allegria in Black. I know I mentioned my love for Manos del Uruguay when this color popped up earlier in the Calendar, but it’s worth repeating. It’s wonderful yarn! Advertisements
In today’s Craftvent box we get more Tosh Merino Light in Gracenotes. I am loving how much MadTosh is in this project.
Today in Craftvent, we get more Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Pewter. My current semester of grad school ends Tuesday, so I am really looking forward to making some progress in this project next week.

Today from Jimmy Beans, more MadTosh! The base is once again Tosh Merino Light, this time in the Copper Pink colorway. The depth of the color is very pretty in person. Can’t wait to see how it knits up.
Finally, we got some color up in this house! I was beginning to wonder where the sugar plum in the sugar plum color I chose for this kit was going to crop up. Today’s yarn is Anzula Nebula in the Black Cherry colorway. Anzula makes beautiful, squishy yarns. As a California company, I find it […]
Given my shopping habits, I was pretty sure that I knew of every yarn dye in existence, but I was wrong. So very wrong. Today in the Craftvent calendar is a new to me yarn by La Bien Aimee! La Bien Aimee’s Tough Sock base is 75% Blue Faced Leicester, 25% nylon. BFL is not […]
