Cherry Tree Hill Sock Yarn that cannot decide what it wants to be when it grows up.  In the episode I mention the Jaywalkers and River Valley Socks.  As I was browsing Ravelry while typing shownotes, I found another pair of socks that I attempted to knit with this yarn, too.  By the way - the Jaywalker pattern is still available as a free Ravelry download.

International Yarn Bomb Day 2013


Many, many thanks to everyone who contributed to the Cosmic Knittas yarn bomb installation!! We had a bit of a soggy start on Friday, and some of the pieces that went up Friday & yesterday have already gone missing. Today was absolutely beautiful and we spent the morning & afternoon painting the town in yarn!!  There are a few more pieces that will go up later today and throughout the week.

The local paper had a lovely write-up that is already online and will appear later in the week in the print edition.

Here are just a few snapshots from this weekend:
