Did You Hear The Rain?

Today is a rather dreary and Rain-Is-Threatening-To-Pour-Down-From-The-Heavens type of day and that made me feel a little concerned because day three of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week is all about photography. When I do take photos of my projects I use natural light because… That’s really all that’s available to me! :P In my experience, gray days like today can sometimes be a hit or miss for me.

So Long and Thanks for all the Pepsi.

Day #2 of the Knitting and Crochet Blog Week has bloggers setting aside their needles and hooks to talk about the person behind all that yarn. In short, we’re supposed to talk about ourselves–in as detailed or not-so-detailed fashion–about something other than yarnbending (or at least that was the gist I got?). With that in mind, I’m just… gonna dive in and apologize in advance if I go off on a tangent, lol.

If You Were Yarn

May 11th officially kicks off Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2015. The first topic of the week is “If You Were Yarn” and if you want to see what else will be discussed, head over to Eskimimi Makes and find out!

At first, I was going to talk about my love for Shepherd’s Wool again made by the Stonehedge Fiber Mill up in East Jordan, Michigan, but… I decided not to because…

  1. I’ve already talked about it, and…
  2. As much as I like the yarn, it’s not really “me.”

So what yarn am I? I think I’d be a 5 weight yarn, because let’s face it; Anyone that knows what I look like could probably say I’m on the bulky side ;P. But, what specific bulky yarn would I be? Hmm… After some thought (and looking through my stash), I ultimately decided that I’d be Lion’s Pride Woolspun yarn. Why the Woolspun line, you ask? WEEEELL…

  • It’s soft — like me.
  • It’s squishy — like me.
  • It’s understated — like the introvert in me.
  • It’s bold — even though I’m quiet, I do make the occasional bold statement.
  • It’s moody (maybe even versatile?) — there are colors for every mood I have! :P

What about you? If you were yarn, what would you be?
