Knitting is my procrastination tool

{May 17, 2008}   Woo-hoo!

I’ve been garage selling. And today I went to another garage sale on a tip. There’s yarn over there. 🙂

So, of course I had to check it out.

I came back with…

garage sale yarn

The lady who owned this (she passed away), was a needlepoint person. I figure these small amounts will be great for stranded knitting. :


the needle point yarn is great for Rovaniemi–you can find examples on the Yarn harlots blog, (she took a class (about 1 yearago (i think it was at Soar 2007, she blogged about it)

the Tsock Tsarina blog about it too, and made some fingerless gloves Rovaniemi style (see her archives, too.

and in Scarf Style, there is a multi color scarf (i forget the designer) done with needle point yarns.. Once you start to look (Ravelry, say)i suspect there are many idea’s for using this yarn in knitting.

(i knit a micro mini sweater (well part of one) for a knitting basket in a doll house using needle point yarn–i seperated the plies, and use 00 needles..)
