Cool Blue

What I wouldn't give to be here right now...



Photo courtesy of Webshots. I am not really sure where it is, but I think somewhere in Canada would be a good guess. It is so hot and sweltering here right now... and there are still three weeks before summer officially starts. This is one thing I desperately do not like about living on the East Coast. I don't think people here believe me when I tell them that we never had airconditioning growing up - it simply was not needed. I remember we got ceiling fans when I was in high school, but it was a nice thing, not a necessity.

Lolly at http://www.lollygirl.com/blog/ has asked us to flash our blue stash... so here you go, Lolly :) I have to say, pulling all this out made me think I need to cull through the stash again. What is in this pile? Well, in no particular order, Wildflower DK, Hot Socks variegated, Super Bulky from http://handpaintedyarn.com/index.php , Caron Bliss, Encore Worsted, Lion Brand Wool Ease, a merino/alpaca mix, Patons Astra, some Turkish rug yarn, Knitpicks Wool of the Andes... and lots of other stuff.



And here is a close up:



And for more Project Spectrum photos, may I present squares from Willow's I-Spy quilt made by her Great Aunt Daryth. Please forgive the blurry shots - my camera doesn't have a great zoom feature.





Trust me when I say that each of these sqaures means something - and Willow's is 16 squares by 16 squares. She has had the quilt for 18 months now and I am still finding new things in the quilt.

I meant STASH - not stach. That's not even a word. No spell check on this thing......WTF??

I'd like to see the rest of your stash if that's just your blue! Holy-moly, girl! What fun is that?
I love the "I Spy" quilt...what a wonderful idea. Have a great weekend!

Don't worry - it's not like this for every colour - it is just that blue and green are my favourite colours :)

A beautiful blue stash you have there! I spot one of those great Debbie Bliss knock-off cashmere yarns from AC Moore. That stuff is so great! I love that dark blue it is in! :)

So much blue! Could there be even more blue and green yarn in your future?? =)

mom said...

does this mean more for mommy???? if you send some to Teri she can make something for herself, cause she can knit - and I thought Teri didn't wear blue!!!

Hey! That looks like the Yukon in the middle of winter!

And I like blue... I just don't have a lot of blue things.. do jeans count??
