I'm knitting a lacey type scarf and the pattern repeats over 24 lines. Usually I write the pattern out onto index cards so I don't lose my place. Yesterday I suddenly thougth: Hey why not put one line per page on a Word doc and mail it over to my Kindle.  I did and it's sooooo nice!! It displays one line at a time as I knit, and when I hit "next page" there's the next line!. Plus Kindle opens up to the furthest page left, so i'll always know where I left off. Clever me!

Okay, so I finished the pig I've been working on (the WIP posts are available over the past few days in my knittergoddss ).  He looks a little dirty, but that's only because I filled him with catnip, and it made a mess everywhere and didn't brush off as easily as I expected him to.  Isn't he cute?!  He's from Crafty Alien's "Born In A Barn, Volume 1".  Her pictures of hers on Ravelry are much better.  Perhaps I'll felt the next one longer...maybe that's what I did wrong.  I'm not entirely sure.  But mine's still super cute, if I do say so myself.

Pssttt! Site update at Midnightsky Fibers!

New in this update- yarns and fibers from local fleeces! There are fibers from local sheep, handspun local yarns, and dk weight yarns spun by a small mill from Clun Forest sheep from Washington. I also set aside some of these in natural form for people who want undyed yarns. Check out the new “local” section at the top of the shop to see all the local goodies!

Also new this week are plenty of new sock yarns and fibers dyed with Indigo, lots of new handspun, and even a few items of spinning equipment that I am destashing in the sale section.
