This is not good....

... this site could be a giant time and money suck for me!!!

Spoonflower.... how did I ever not come across you until just last week!!!???!!!
Imagine... designing your own fabric lounging in the garden... sipping on rhubarb spritzers... doodling on a laptop... no fuss... no mess... I call that Nirvana and a dream of a summer!

Oh, here's a small glimpse of "the book" progress...
This week it is about loving the Granny Square...
and Frog Tree Alpaca...
but not at the same time.
Believe me, it pains me more than you can imagine not being able to show you all the stuff that is being swatched and stitched and charted and planned for "Book 2010".

If you don't know about Frog Tree... you should!
Not only do Tricia and Chet offer fantastic quality natural fiber yarns in beautiful colours at a reasonable cost--- they do it working with not-for-profit spinners in South America with "funds from our project used to support worthy educational causes".
This is the new direction in knitting that makes my heart sing...

Another vote for Frog Tree -- both the idea and the yarn. I happened upon some Meriboo last spring -- what a joy to work with! ~Luise

I LOVE Granny Squares! I can't wait to see what you are doing with them. I know the color combinations will be BEAUTIFUL!

Haven't tried spoonflower yet - but am dying to. Sounds like so much fun.

Hope you are surviving winter.
