Circling Around

Remember this stuff?

This was from a textured batt I made last year. I barely remembered it either, lol! But, I didn’t have anything on my mind to do for KIP day/week. So, I just took this out and made a swatch for some mitts.

It turns out this stuff is a little scratchy. Not brillo, but a little rougher just the same.  My hands are probably the only part of my body that might not mind a scruffier yarn. kip003

I will have to show how that swatch turned out later (along with some cotton that is FINALLY starting to make some sense…). 

In the meantime, I wanted to show you what else I have been working on…though, you’ve already seen it.  A million times. What’s a million and one though, right? ;)

That’s right. Still plugging away on that website. What do you think? Okay…Besides that I got a little obsessive? 

So, this is where I am with this now. The domain is moved over now so that the old link of greenbankmill.org, which used to look like this, now links to the same address as the new dot come site (really, it does-try it!). I have also contacted an illustrator for a favicon and some personalized icons so that I hopefully don’t need to take a course in Illustrator to figure out how to make those. But, for now, this is going to be the color scheme (which goes with our current newsletter). Whew! This has been a labor of love, folks. Remember when it looked like this? Or this? Or this? LOL! But I think it’s finally settling into a look I can be satisfied with. Well, I’d like some more imagery in that header area…But this is good, lol. I can finally say, “It is enough.” (I think :))

Lastly, I want to thank knitxpressions and Tina for the Wonderful Team Membership Readership and WordPress Family Awards!

    Scratchy wool for gloves is great – saves on the exfoliator : )
