I need rehab.
I just. Can’t. Stop. Joining. (Why did that sound like Captain Kirk in my head? You neither? okay.)
It’s really not that bad (I’ll keep telling myself that.) I joined the Chocolate Swap that I read about over at Dave’s blog. It’s not very complicated, not even a secret pal swap – just send chocolate yumminess and chocolate-colored yarn to your pal… I can handle that much (and I can certainly look forward to it in my mailbox!)
And that’s all; no more swaps, I promise.
I posted over on the ISE 3 webpage, but I want to share here too; in my search for scarf-pal yarn, I stumbled upon not one but two great sites I’m sure to frequent often in the future.
The first is another knit blog (wait, don’t yawn!) by a really cool knit-guy. Now, I know there’re plenty of Guy Knitters out there, but it’s still nice to add to the list of accomplished and prolific male knitters. This blog I speak of is Brooklyn Tweed. I read about him over at So Much Yarn, So Little Time (gracious, this is becoming a link-heavy post!) Great knitting, and his blog introduced me to a new online yarn shop.
It’s called Beaverslide Dry Goods, and they are really awesome. Montana farm-raised yarn, family owned business, old-fashioned spinning (mule-spun? Didn’t know they could spin…) and the prices are unbeatable. Go check it out. Right now. For real, folks, I’m not going anywhere!
So I ordered some yarn from them for my Scarf Pal, prettyprettypretty blue merino-kid mohair blend, worsted weight… I’ll be back for some of that roving. (You didn’t notice the roving? The organic wool roving for $12 – $17 a pound?!!??? Get outta here!)
AND both my new swap pals contacted me, all mysterious-like and excited…*grin*
