Yay! It’s been a whole year. And it’s fitting that my blogiversary brings with it a newly rekindled urge to knit. I’m making My So Called Scarf for Shawn. My fellow vegan knitters will note that this is indeed Manos del Uruguay. I had a bit of a debate with myself about the ethics – supporting a women’s cooperative vs. avoiding wool at any cost (much more about my thoughts on this in general in an old post if you’re interested). But when it comes down to it, I just really wanted to work with this yarn and the colors were beautiful, I bought another colorway for myself. I don’t plan to make a habit of it, and I’m looking forward to using some lovely bamboo yarn on my next project, but there you have it, please don’t kick me out of the ring. 🙂
Now, in the true spirit of blogiversaries, presents! Leave me a comment on any of this week’s posts (Sunday, August 27th – Friday, September 1st) and I will use everyone’s favorite random number generator to pick a few of you to receive the item of your choice from my etsy shop.
Thank you all for making this year a little brighter!
