So on my tumblr dash this afternoon I discovered that someone did a thing on a confession blog. Then several other people added to thing and liked, reblogged and commented on said thing. Thank you so very much.
Warning: Boring yarn talk post
New yarn day! Whoo hoo! When I started making the mohair sweaters for the neemos I discovered that not all mohairs are alike. Most of the yarns from my current stash were too heavy for the little guys. The percentage between the mohair and silk made a big difference. The higher percentage of mohair, the denser the fabric it created. The higher percentage of silk meant that it would be lighter. While some of the “yosd only” yarns will work for the neemo sweaters, everything else I have will not (pretty much 85% of my stash). I’m almost starting from scratch and have to read labels more carefully from now on. I can’t just go by what the yarn is made of but now the percentage of it’s contents. I’m going to go through my mohair collection this weekend and divide what yarns will work with what size. I hope to post pics when I’m finished. (Why am I so picky?!)
Haru: You can hide in here, Panda-kun
February is almost over. That means that as of the first of March Tsuyoshi gets to stake his claim on all of the Valentine Pandas that are left behind. The pandas are available with every sweater purchase in the shop this month. In the meantime Haru will do his best to find hiding spots for the little guys left behind.
