Knitted cushions, Araucania, and caravan

I’d like to AGAIN apologize for the unnecessary emails you received on Sept. 2 when I HAD NOT updated the blog.  AGAIN I have appealed to the autoresponder company, asking them to please fix it.  I’m always afraid you guys are going to be miffed at me for sending out too many emails to you and filling your inboxes, giving your just a little more daily garbage to dig yourselves out of.  I’m so sorry!

Now, on to other items…I LOVE Araucania yarns.  I get very happy when someone orders a color I don’t have and I get to order it and put it in my stock.  I have just updated the Nature Wool and Nature Wool Multy pages.  There are 6 new colors in the Nature Wool (the colors at the bottom of the Nature Wool page).  Nature Wool features mottled solid dyes.  I feel like they are more subtle and do more than hint at a color, but don’t overpower us with it.  Judge for yourself!  Nature Wool Multy (yes, that’s how THEY spell multi…) is the multi-colored hand-dyed version of Nature Wool.  At $9.95/240 yd. skein for Nature Wool and $11.95/240 yd. skein for Nature Wool Multy, they are a GREAT value for hand-dyed yarn!  For the sock-lover in you, I have Ranco, and Ranco Multi, too.

I hate to complain about this, but we’ve had too much rain in Memphis lately.  It has hampered my work on the caravan a great deal.  I haven’t worked on it since last weekend!  I have however ordered the cool Amy Butler fabric.  It was on sale at!  I got sooooo lucky.  I went to Hancock’s Fabrics and found a solid that matched the center of the “flower thing” on the Amy Butler fabric.  I’m going to have 1/2 of the cushions made with the pattern, and 1/2 with the solid fabric.  I had the idea that I would knit cushions for the caravan.  Why the hell not?  The way I’ve been working on this project, I actually believe that I can say that out loud, and actually knit them.  Also, I would like to knit some airy curtains for yon caravan.  The caravan is quite taken-apart.  The back half is taken down to bare metal to the floor.  It’s not looking good folks!  I’m very determined, and this will get done, but it’s going to be worth A LOT MORE than I paid for it, and I’m afraid I’ll have trouble parting with it.  I think I will have to part with it because, let’s face it, it doesn’t have a toilet!  UGH….

Oh, before I forget.  I have the new Debbie Bliss Magazine in stock.  They retail for $7.99.  IT IS AN EXTREMELY WELL DONE MAGAZINE!!!  Could we expect any less from Debbie Bliss?  I’m trying to build the page now, so here’s the link:  Debbie Bliss Magazine  Here’s a picture of the cover:

    Hi, I was wondering if you could use a port a potty in your caravan. That way you could enjoy using it. Also it makes a terrific little apartment for guests, etc. With the work you are putting into it I think it would be so sad for you to have to sell it. Good luck! I enjoy your blog so much.
    All the best.
