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

So, I started using the hashtag #casbahislikecrack, but the more I think about it, the more I hope the good people at Handmaiden are not offended because crack is bad for 1000 different reasons, but hopefully people get what I was trying to say. I digress.
Plucky Knitter yarn is all yummy. Plucky Feet doesn’t feel quite as nice in the hands as Primo Fingering, but I can tell it’s going to hold up and I can put up with just a tiny bit less softness for stitch definition this amazing.

and the color! My Word, the color! Every time I see these socks, my soul sings. The pattern was a fun knit and it’s fairly stretchy which I like in a sock. So, spend all your money on yarn and patterns because even though The Husband probably thinks a drug habit might be cheaper, knitting is legal and good for your brain, plus SOCKS!

Eating Brussels Sprouts makes me feel like a giant eating the heads off tiny cabbage patch kids. But I liked the flavor.

Eating Brussels Sprouts makes me feel like a giant eating the heads off tiny cabbage patch kids. I kind of love it.

    Gorgeous! Now I know why you like my TTL Mystery Socks. I have yet to get my hands on any Plucky Knitter. I was out of town when she was in a local yarn store here in January. Then I was too late for her flash sales on Etsy. Sigh. One day.

    LOL #buycasbahnotcrack could be the new anti-drug campaign. All the addiction without the harmful side effects. :-D
