Hiya,

How has your week been?

Mine’s been great. Busy dyeing as usual (I like saying this, it sounds funny if you don’t know the context that i dye yarn!) 😀 But this week I also spent quite some time making mini yarn ball earrings to stock up in my Etsy shop and for up-coming craft fairs in summer and autumn. I know spring is not actually official here yet in Scotland but soon ?!

Yesterday was a kickoff of MarledmagicMKAL I have joined. It’s a 4-week knit along (KAL)hosted by the knitwear designer Stephen West. So i received my first clue and started  knitting a few rows already. Since we can go wild with the yarn choices, I decided to throw in some of my hand dyed yarn in the pack as well 🙂

What do you think of these beauties?

Now the needles are calling me. I’d better sign off to continue on my rows.

Happy Knitting and Crocheting!

Why is it difficult to “cast-on?”

Why is it difficult to “cast-on?”

…..

Do you find it difficult sometimes to cast on a new project?

If the answer is “no,” then this post is not for you, sorry.

The question of “Do I have enough yarn to finish this project?” might come up.

You are afraid that it will end up in a “WIPs” pile.

Will the recipient of this beautiful hand-knitted gift appreciate your time and effort?

What if I ran out of interesting podcasts/ TV programs to listen to or watch while clicking away my needles?

Above all these fears

….

To “cast-on” means “commitment.”

It can lead to a “fatal” or “suicidal” path in some cases.

What have you casted on recently?

The Opening Scene

In a galaxy far far away, a stormtrooper is in search of a master to teach him how to knit.

The stormtrooper, an avid crocheter (oh yes!), is a novice knitter. He just wishes to explore more of new knitting techniques and try complicated stitches.He is told to come to master “Mia” and is greeted by “Meow” the gatekeeper.

The stormtrooper mistakes Meow for Mia and right away asks the gatekeeper , “CAN YOU TEACH ME HOW TO KNIT?”

What would Meow say? …
