Blue

Metaphorically
Just mentally exhausted lately. Bogged down by too many things in mind.

Literally....
See my thumb & fingers?

Everyone loves denim, don't they? I was working on a store sample using the Blue Jeans denim yarn that I carry. I mean, how else could anyone imagine its final result? As usual, the dark navy yarn just decides to hug my fingers. Here's what I initially created:

A pile of feminine, flowery crochet mess

Not quite suitable, you think? That's what I thought so this pile is gone by the time you read this:- heading straight to the frog pond. The good thing thought is that I've developed another pattern. So far, the work in progress is getting some wooing and aahing from at least 3 people who've seen it - I know, it's their plan to try & cajole me to gift it to them but I'm not budging this time. (Maybe not so soon, I mean, for goodness' sake; it's a store sample! It'll be lounging in my apartment or slugging over my shoulders for some time to come.)

Other than that, this week has been great...I've even managed a shot at teaching a kid knitting!

PS. Ok, so I do wish I can have a physical store....but in the meantime, just think virtual or home-based business.

Wow ... that is beautiful! Yes, I read that denim stains your fingers.

What, frogpond!! It's beautiful, please don't rip it if you haven't.

They are so pretty--don't rip! I made some pillows a few years back with some denim fabric, and the dye got everywhere--my hands, my clothes, and my face!

i had some squarry results with denim rowan, due to the changing after washing, i calculated wrong, but i love the results in stockinette stitch, like blue jeans, great! Hope your tryings more succesfull than mine :-)

Ooh. That's what I heard, it really stains the fingers. What would happen if you wound the yarn up in loose skeins and washed it before using it? I know it sounds a bit of a pain, but you wouldn't get stained. Makes me think twice about trying it now.
