I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

I recently visited Gauge with my friend Sam. We were in the market to get her some dpns (double pointed needles) for her to knit socks. Yes, I’m infecting people around me.
Now, I’ve been admiring Dizzy Lettuce yarn for at least a year now and what do you know, we ran into Jennifer Miller! She’s the genius behind Dizzy Lettuce yarn! Yes, I discovered it was her when once again, I was chatting up a random lady in a yarn shop. If it keeps paying off, I’m going to keep doing it; she was super nice! She agreed to autograph the yarn I just HAD to buy (humor me) and pose for pictures. This one is my favorite.

One of my knitting friends noted that I seem to have turned into a real knitting groupie. But, here’s the yarn – see if you can resist the spell – the pink yarn has glittery silver thread in it for Pete’s sake! and look at the depth of color in the lichen! I had no choice but to take it home with me and be a huge fan!

Ps. It might seem like I suddenly started purchasing a lot of yarn, but I tell myself, it’s ok because after all, I didn’t buy any yarn in May, so surely the stash is at a fine level. right?

    From seaweed to lettuce. I am totally learning something new every time I read you!

    Love that argenbright – rose. That is my color, girl!

      ha! Dizzy Lettuce is the dye company name. I’ll have to ask her how she came up with that.

      This is the first pink sock yarn I’ve purchased that I plan to make socks for me. Usually, I’m blue all the way, but this stuff, man, it’s too much! :)

    Wow, I really love both of those colors a lot! You have great taste in yarn!

    • Katie says:

      awwww. Thank you! This was the first time I’ve seen her fingering weight yarn. Her sock yarn must find homes quickly! We’re lucky to have some really talented local dyers. The White Bear Fibers dyer (aka Doug) is a magician!

      Thanks! I love it. Now, I’m going to “try” not to buy any yarn in July. We shall see. :)
