It's Friday!

And that means game night!  Last week we played Last Knitter Standing for the first time - it is a scream!  The winner of last week's game was Kathi Benedix; she won a wine glass from Crafty Glasses.  It has a purple stem and reads "Knit one, sip one".  This week we will again have munchies, limited adult beverages, and you may bring your own, of course.  The game starts any time after 5, and you can join in at almost any point once it's underway.

Just arrived this week - the Lavishea lotion bars I wrote about last week.  The lemongrass and lavender scents are selling fast, but I also love the pear and the ginger blossom scents. 

Also new this week - Chris Bylsma Designs patterns.  These are very elegant, classic patterns, and mostly very simple to execute.  One simple ribbed cardigan changes sizes simply by changing the number of stitches in the ribs: 7 x 7, 8 x 8, etc.

The Gift Enclosures by Heritage Fiber Publications arrived today, too.  These are attractive little cards with places to write care instructions, fiber content, and other important stuff.  Use these cards instead of putting an unattractive ball band in with your handmade gifts (you know they usually throw out the ball band without reading it, anyway).

Purls of wisdom:  the real reason Christopher Columbus didn't reach India in 1492 is because he was using a Garmin.  Recalculating.  Recalculating. Recalculating.  Recalculating.........


  1. We just played this at our LYS. It was hilarious and personally, I think it has great potential as a drinking game...

  2. Absolutely! Players might choose between ripping out rows and drinking shots..... ;_)
