A Yarn Wishlist

I've been dreaming about new yarns lately. Chatting with fellow fiber enthusiasts has made me aware of so many yarns I want to try this year. These twelve are the ones I'm coveting the most right now (a couple may even be finding their way to me as we speak...) Some are new finds while others are ones I've been dreaming of for ages. As you can see, I'm really drawn to rich, burgundy reds and dark, piney greens lately. And, of course, grays. Always, grays.

1. Quince and Co Owl in Hemlock   2. Quince and Co Owl Tweet in Buffalo Plaid   3. De Rerum Natura Ulysse in poivre et sel/salt and pepper  4. Manos del Uruguay Fino in Garnet Brooch   5. Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Laurel   6. Woofolk Far in 11   7. Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Snowbound  8. Swans Island Washable Wool in Pewter   9. O-Wool O-Wash Fingering in Appalachian Stone   10. Hole & Sons Double Knit in Kimmeridge Clay 11. A Verb for Keeping Warm Pioneer in Grizzly Peak   12. Sincere Sheep Equity in Aegean

The Web

As you can see by these photos, the spiders are at it. My mother always said August and September were cobweb months. The mornings have been amazing. I sit on the porch with a big bowl of hot oats topped with maple syrup and peaches, sip my coffee and watch the chickens. Some mornings the fog and light are magical, which makes for picture-perfect cobwebs.

In the spirit of being interwoven and the world wide web, I thought I’d share some of my recent finds with you:

~I never knew Ashley English had a blog. I’ve been binge reading past posts and soaking up the inspiration and beauty there. And looking forward to her upcoming book about drinks called Quench.

~These blog are pretty great too: Babes in Boyland and Woolful

~And speaking of tasty drinks this Sparkling Spiked Peach Lemonade seems like a perfect way to relish the rest of summer.

~So many of my favorite bloggers have been on grand adventures. Ine explored Norway. Margie also went to Norway, as well as Iceland. Lori went to the Shetland Islands. And Kristina went to British Columbia. Thank you women for letting us live vicariously through you!

~I love that Julie is now sharing photo shoot outtakes. I love seeing the behind-the-scenes.

~Favorite Ravelry finds: Slant, Precious and Sandbank

~Things to bake: GF Rosemary CrackersCoffee Walnut Loaf, Sweet Potato Almond Butter Muffins
