|I really do like the blue cast findings|
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 by Eden Kitty
Today's post comes straight from Twisted in Portland. Cassie and I joined up with the PDX Knit Crawl and went to twenty yarn stores in just two days! We didn't win any of the big prizes but we were smart enough to show up at twisted first, and got some rocking goody bags. In them were a selection of buttons, some magnets, a few patterns and a ball of yarn. The yarn pattern was to be used for a tiny cozy, and boy is it tiny and cozy. I knit this with 32 stitches on size 0 needles, what can I say, I knit super loose. I cast on using the figure eight method which is what gives the little cozy it's very square corners.
This only took about an hour or two, and was really relaxing once the cast on was done. It perfectly fits my ID and a few cards/cash, so it's just perfect for me. Hopefully, if i always put my cards back in there, I'll be able to find them without rooting through my entire purse, but we'll have to see how it goes. I already knit a second one in a sparkly black yarn for the husband, but I have my doubts as to weather or not he'll want to use it.

I was going to make a white set, as I have these gorgeous white star-pearls, but alas, they are drilled from point to point, not symmetrically, so they don't sit right, I may have to see about finding some that do so I can get these up on Etsy. I think these are just so fun, and I love the colors. I also have enough to do a few more sets in green and a couple in blue. So fear not, it's not just a green girl's paradise. Though outside is, with the weather and the rain it's just verdant outside. I did have one of the weirder conversations with a tree while taking pictures, but then I realized, aren't all conversations with trees peculiar at least?
On the way out the door to take pictures, I found a few little friends... a few hundred that is! With the warmer weather or just the timing I managed to open the door to a bunch of little ballooning spiders. They are so tiny and cute, but damn do they give you the creepy crawlies. I still feel like I might have a couple on me. Josh and I both tried to take pictures, and I think my little point and shoot might have won that battle.
