Just another Saturday update and FOR MOM~~~

First of all, I like to thank to my mom, everythings did for me!


Just little poem... share with every mom in the whole world:

"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.

Howard Johnson

Isn't that sweet? Great poem for mothers day!

Book Review #2 and more Knitting Things.....

It's Saturday again!! I missed youguys!! Thank you so much for leave great feedback for my last funny post. Thats my first cilp..i will better next one! I know it is summer already!! In here CA, over 89 degree..It have been hot weather over a month now.

Anyway, I FINELLY GOT MY Yarn Harlot's (Stephanie Pearl- McPhee) NEW "CASTS OFF" book from Amazon!! Ya Ya.. Another great knitting reading book from her..I know... She is great knitter and also great auther!

When i was reading this book, she talks about gender distinctians in knitting(Men Knitter)Iam agreed with her fect not only for feminine pursuit, alots of knitting was done almost exlcusively by men. Still many people think knitting is not for men, ONLY girl's can do knitting!

"Why Should men knit?

- Men who take up knitting in North America will be surrounded by women. If i were a single guy looking for good odds. I'd live at yarn store.

-Because people dont see many men knitting, they tend to be really impressed and taken with the men they do see. Attention for a male knitter is like white on rice.(I once held my tongue for about ten painful minutes while some woman gushed all over my buddy's garther-stitch scarf and ignored my Orenburg shawl. I, like most female knitters, have tried not to be at all bitter about this.)

-Samurai, the least feminine of men, were known to knit. At the zenith of the samurai's power and status, they earned all their income form being professional warriors, but as having a bunch of wariors standing around fell out of fashion in Japan, many samurai took up knitting....first as a cost saving measure, to make their own gloves and socks and then to supplement their income.

-We always talk about how men, would make better spouses, pathners and parents if they had more focus, attention to detail and patience. Knitting's pretty good for helping you to acquire these skills.

-Knitting is dead Sexy! (for both genders) "

Back to my Knitting..

I been working on my sock sample for my dyeing class this month.. I was working on little bit..not much! By the way pattern iam using is "Bubble Wrap Socks" by Sockbug. I really the yarn coming out(becuase i dye the yarn myself! HAHA)

Also i got order from CDBaby two great inde artist new album! Check does out!

"Watcing Waiting" by Todd Carey
( I even got his sign from Todd!!!!So SWEET!!!)


"The Natural Knitter"

How to Choose, Use, and Knit Natural Fibers form Alpaca to Yak

by Barbara Albright

My Score: **** star (** Never Buy/ *** Not Bad/ **** Good to Keep/ ***** Must Have)

Everything about this book is rich, lush and beautiful. The author did a beautiful job of exploring natural fibers. For me, many of the patterns are challenging with my current "patience to skill" ratio (I consider myself a newly-intermediate-knitter) - but I am inspired to eventually try several patterns. Albright discussed how to define "organic" fibers - there are, I believe, 5 distinctions of organic fibers. Qualities of fibers are thoroughly reviewed. Though I am not a spinner, spinning is discussed in terms that make sense to a knitter. I liked Albrights' general approch, it's very nuturing and informative to knitters and fiber artists of all levels. Must have book on your list..

Beautiful Pictures!!!

In her introduction, Barbara explores what qualifies as "organic" yarn and the varying classifications of organic products. In explaining the purpose of The Natural Knitter, she states: "Armed with the information you glean from this book, you will have a greater understanding and a new appreciation of the wide variety of natural yarns that are available...While this book is about natural fibers, it is also about people who take another step toward being more earth-friendly..."
