Notes From Sherwood Forest

ME, the PERSON of VERYPINK, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Fast-Topic-Changing Friday.

This is the Felted Yoga Mat Bag from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.

It looks like a quiver (for arrows). The recipient gave me a fine Robin Hood monologue once he slung it on his shoulder.

One of my contributions is this stocking. It’s a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern, with a few mods.

I’m really happy with the way it came out. The fabric is dense enough to hold a lot of gift cards.

img_1212.JPG I’ve had this little foster girl, Mia, for about three weeks now. We’ve found her a great new home in Calgary, so she’s going to be Canadian!

Here she is, checking out the cabin of her flight capsule.

You can imagine, I’m really going to miss her.


img_1223.JPG Ever wonder what every color of Baby Ull looks like in a pyramid? Well, here ya go!

Need some Cascade 220? Please buy it from The Knitting Nest’s new eBay store! We have every color! (This is kind of my baby, and I’d love for it to do well.)

(Baby Ull will be in the store soon.)


img_1216.JPG Several people have told me that my dogs are photogenic. I agree. I’ve also heard that they’re talented in the way that they hold still for photos.

I never really thought about it until I started TRYING to photograph Mia.

She. Won’t. Hold. Still.

img_1217.JPG Ike’s all, lemme show you how it’s done.
img_1218.JPG Abe’s all, yeah – I can hold still.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Okay, Staci, just placed an order.

    Very glad to see The Knitting Nest on eBay.

    The girls and I still plan to catch a class or two with you this summer.

    Take care.

    ; )

  2. maybe with my brother moving to texas (i have no idea where) he’ll be smart enough to move to austin so i have an excuse to come visit!

  3. I am feeling sad that the shipping charges to my house may actually be cheaper than the gas to drive to the shop. Still, I’m glad there’s an online shop now.

  4. Welcome to Canada Mia. Your boy dog models are so adorable, as always.
    Can’t wait to check out the Knitting Nest on eBay, wishing you all the best.

  5. Cool, I have bookmarked the ebay store. I am definitely going to use it soon. I just got the Great American Afghan book, and I am planning on starting it in August. I will need lots of Cascade. 🙂

  6. The colors of Baby Ull look yummy! I can’t wait to knit something with that. The dark purple near the top catches my eye.

  7. Yay Mia ! Will there be “items” on the ebay store (for your non-knitting friends ?) The store looks great, we will all have to get you some FB.
