Day 25 – Favorite Cast On: Lately, it’s all about the cable cast on. I like to start as a no-knot long tail cast on, then slide to the other end of the circular (instead of turning), add all the stitches, then slide off the very first one. To my eye, this gives the most consistent look. #yarnfolk #lys #28daysofyourlys
Day 22 – Animals in the Shop: Actually, the joey has competition for most unique animal in a yarn shop—Cash the Pig has visited, as has @mischieviousclown’s bearded dragon, along with the occasional dog, a well-contained cat or two, and a bird (whose knitter was moving long distance during cold weather)! #yarnfolk #lys #28daysofyourlys
Day 20 – Circles and Squares: I’m going at today’s prompt a little sideways…. This is the logo for @artechseattle where I worked straight out of college, and in some capacity until 2002 or so. It’s where I learned about the sheer tenacity it takes to survive as a small business. I got to wear a lot of hats—and it’s where I learned that I like that best. Having a job that engages you completely and serves up new challenges daily is a treasure, as is the chance to work with creative, interesting, and fun people. I have that at Yarn Folk, and I’m grateful. #yarnfolk #lys #28daysofyourlys
