Looks like we have a Partial Print!

When you're looking for clues, a "Partial Print" is a good thing.  It can shed some light on the mystery at hand and give new insights on a case.

So maybe I've been watching a bit too much NCIS lately--or perhaps not, as the show has inspired this lovely cap.

Mostly Smooth (like Tony), with a bit of rugged texture (Gibbs), this cap looks great inside and out--literally!  I can picture the whole crew McGee, Abbs, even the Autopsy Gremlin rockin' this hat, can't you?

Under the Influence

As a self-proclaimed yarnaholic, I often fall prey to beautiful yarns.  Most of my friends know about my addiction and chalk it up as one of my “quirks”.  My really good friends join me in my full-on fiber frenzies and introduce me to new yarn shops where new and exciting skeins leap into my bag while my will-power (and my money) desert me completely!

These patterns were born after my dear friend Sharon introduced me to a new stash-builder.  I of course,  went along with the notion that I really “didn’t need any more yarn”, but quickly fell under the influence of this luscious Cashmara yarn, beautifully dyed by Pat, from Fly Designs—and when Sharon suggested that we both should get some —well, it just seemed rude not to!

Don't Lose Hope!

Let's Have Another Hope

A subtle ruffled edge lends grace and movement to this shawl which features "Zen"--a deeply color-drenched yarn, expertly dyed by Nerd Girl Yarns which provides incomparable drape and shine to the finished piece.

Buffy: Then Willow might be our only hope.
 Willow: I don't wanna be our only hope. I crumble under pressure. Let's have another hope.

Nah, Willow--You've got this!
