My two favorite things to sniff.


Hi all, just popping in briefly with some Fiberlicious! action on this fine Sunday morning. I mean, what better time is there to think about all of the best kinds of expresso than a cool, sunny Sunday morning?


Here are my two favorite forms of Expresso. Yum. While I am still working diligently on sweaters, I am getting the urge to knit socks again. Could it be the imminent onset of Socktoberfest? So, I picked up two balls of Rowan 4 Ply Soft for a little I Love Gansey action. That should satisfy my need for a sock on the needles. And those teensy cables should keep me occupied, too.


Speaking of sweaters and diligence, this little stack of buttons is the only thing remaining between me and a finished Central Park Hoodie. So very, very close. And I can't think of a better thing to do while drinking my Sunday morning expresso than putting the final touches on a pre-fall sweater.

Happy weekend, all!

Ohh, I love the colors you've got going on in this post--all shades of brown--just up my alley! Those buttons are wonderful--where did you find them? The definitely look handmade, whether or not they actually are!

Why yes, I DO love Gansey, thank you very much. Perfect, perfect.

I just went to make my morning coffee and realized I hadn't turned on the dishwasher last night. Now I'm pondering whether to hand-wash the pot or to just sit here sniffing the screen.

Gorgeous sock, and I love that coffee color. Not quite as dark as I drink mine, but tasty nonetheless. ;-)

Will the CPH be a Rhinebeck sweater, perchance?

This Fiberlicious thing you started is great - I posted some pictures for the first time this Friday and really enjoyed doing it.
Mmm, coffee. Now I must go have some...

4 Ply Soft is one of my favorite yarns. It's just marvelous for soft, cozy socks. I knit a pair of Breeze anklets from the summer Knitty with it.

Coffee + sock yarn = perfection!

I love these photos...two of my addictions. (BTW, love the natural and slightly speckled bowl (plate?) that holds the beans.)

I'm slavering on my keyboard now, not having gotten my morning coffee as I dashed for the lightrail, having over slept after staying up too late watching the new Ken Burns documentary... And coffee-colored yarn is so underrated. Looking forward to your gansey socks!

4-ply soft is one of my top favorite yarns ever. So pretty. And I echo what everyone else is saying about the buttons. I really don't know why it is hard to find great buttons but I really think it is. So nice job--they really are perfect.

This is my favorite Fiberlicious shot! I love green, but there's something about brown wool that makes me want to hug anyone. Oh & the beans... God gawd, I need something to drink.

Wonderful buttons! Where did you find them?

Great espresso yarn. I have so much trouble with my yarn and Fiberliciousness, but now I know why. I bought wonderful charcoal grey Donegal Tweed on Saturday, but who has grey food?

That is the Perfect shade of brown.
Why do I only seem to see perfect yarns online? Makes me wonder...

I really love your buttons. I hope you are going to let us know where you got those.
