Plain Jane Knits Up A Storm

A few musings about my needlecraft hobbies - knitting, crocheting, quilting, & cross-stitch along with my other love, genealogy. While growing up, I used to HATE the term "Plain Jane", but when it comes to knitting & crocheting, I've realized that I really *am* a Plain Jane in that I don't use fancy yarns.

Goodies

I finally had a chance this evening to open the Knit Picks order that came while I was staying with Mom at the hospital, so lots of photos in this one although with the flash, I had a tough time matching photos with the actual yarn. These are all Palette heathers - new colors this fall. Palette is a fingering weight yarn so don't ask me what I'm going to do with it yet - I just fell in love with the colors {g}.. I have two skeins of each - enough for a pair or socks or I may mix them all together in a vest.

Tidepool
