Prairie Bliss on the Stands!

It's not the hat pattern. That's coming. Really.

I do have another new design, however!

Limestone Landscape is a simple stole, knit from Rowan Panama. It's worked on the bias, and it features a fun fringe which might feel familiar to the weavers out there. Bonus: Rowan Panama is Rayon/cotton/linen, meaning it really is cool enough for Texas.

The stole appears in the collection Prairie Bliss from Hill Country Weavers. The collection also includes a re-release of my sweater design Rockabilly Soft.

Take a look, and check out the beautiful designs from the other ladies involved in this collection, too!

Summer Update

This blog has resided in a corner of my mind patiently for some months now, occasionally clearing its throat and wondering if I would ever return to continue our conversation. Then, a thoughtful reader contacted me on Ravelry to ask if my blog had moved or what.

Turns out, in the intervening months between my last post and, well, now, there was "suspicious activity" on my account, which resulted in a shutdown of this blog.


No idea what the suspicious activity was, but my password has been updated and hopefully that takes care of that.

As to my extended absence... It is a challenging time in the life of Mr. MGY and myself. "Sandblasted" is perhaps the best way to describe how I have been feeling in recent months.

For fear of alarming anybody, please know that our marriage is solid, and neither of us is in any danger. However, and I hate to be coy, but this blog is not the place to talk in detail about what's happening. We have family, friends, and coworkers who read my posts on occasion, and in each case we'll need to choose if, when, and how we reveal our personal information to them.

I hope someday that I can use this space to share the whole story. But first, we need to see how it ends.

In the meantime, I do hope to post a bit more here. I have a hat pattern that's been test-knitted and everything by a lovely friend halfway around the world. I have only to incorporate her feedback and post the pattern here, for free. You are welcome to bug me on Ravelry (I'm "MightyGoodYarn") if I don't do that in the near future, yes?

Thanks for reading.

Happy Valentine's!

Stuffed with leftover yarn scraps and dried lavender from my garden, which worked great. A great gift for my Valentine's swap buddy at work.

The pattern is from Mochimochi. Only a few mods.
