Work In Progress Wednesday

With BlogHer Boston just 3 days away, there are many WIP flying around my office right now, but I thought I'd show you all this one. Nothing special, just a scarf and some multi-colored cotton yarn. Peaches & Cream 4-ply 100% cotton yarn in Sea Mist, to be exact.


I have never worked with multi-colored yard before. I have always used patterns and solids.

And I don't think I've ever used 100% Cotton either.

No, really.

I learned on Red Heart acrylic and most if not all of the baby yarns I've used have been blends.

Crazy, right?

I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Speaking of cotton yarns, Coats and Clark has come out with a new Eco-Friendly line. Eco-Ways is an acrylic-poly blend with 30% recycled plastic content, and Eco-Cotton is a cotton-acrylic blend made from recycled t-shirt manufacturer remnants.

Is it wrong to be this excited about yarn?

Is it even more wrong that as Monkey's balloon drifted in to the clouds last week, my first thought was, "OMG, not good! What if it gets stuck in a tree? Or in a lake? That can't be bio-degradable!"

I'm guessing it was the wrong-i-est that I bought the Mylar balloon in the first place...


  1. Your thoughts about the balloon were too funny. haha!

    Hey, check back on my blog later - I'm working on getting the html up for the Blogger Ornament Exchange. You should just be able to copy and paste it.

  2. Boy, you sure are crafty. You crochet too on top of everything else! Have fun at BlogHer! Can't wait to hear about that!

    By the way, you've been tagged! I tagged you! Check out my blog if you want to play along! I'm pretty sure you'll want to!

  3. Wait! Google Reader can do that?? I need to switch over from bloglines. Awesome.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I would have gotten the mylar too -- at least kids can't choke on them like the regular balloons. I hear you though on the environmental front. Now let's talk about that jumbo pack of PAMPERS.... J/K (:

  4. How did you learn to do that, from a book or did someone show you? I have always wanted to learn.

    Thanks for coming buy on the BATW layover.

  5. Thank you for visiting me on my BATW day... glad you enjoyed the tour of TN!

    I have always wanted to learn how to crochet, but never did!

  6. I wish I could crochet/knit/be crafty. I'm so limited in those areas... sigh...

    Thanks for stopping by on your layover yesterday. Come back and visit anytime!

    Oh, and your analogy on the President thing is SO TRUE! They have no idea what real people do.

  7. If it's wrong to be excited about yarn then, it's wrong to be excited about chocolate. And I don't want to be right:-)


What's up, Pixel Peep?
