Threaden Thursday

Threaden (a.) Made of thread; as, threaden sails; a threaden fillet.
Yarn (n.) Spun wool; woolen thread; also, thread of other material, as of cotton, flax, hemp, or silk; material spun and prepared for use in weaving, knitting, manufacturing sewing thread, or the like.

Threaden Thursdays are a review of my knitting, however, I can’t write too much because I am exclusively Christmas knitting right now. I can tell you that it’s coming along nicely. I like that in these initial stages, the project is entirely portable. Since the weather is cold, I’ve been wearing my hoodie nearly all the time. A skein of yarn fits perfectly in the pocket and I pull the yarn from the center and walk around knitting. I’m sure people think I’m a bit weird, but I’ve been weird most of my life. While visiting with friends in GR who understand my quirks, I was able to make a little progress.

My second post for today will have Christmas knitting updates, leave a comment here if you’d like me to email you the password. Please don’t post your email address in the comment area, just fill it out in the name/website/email area of the comment form.

I designed a coolie yarn ball graphic for Threaden Thursdays and that’s about it for today. Well, actually I designed it twice, I had it near perfect and forgot that my computer doesn’t like to multitask. GIMP hung and I lost most of it, but I had enough saved to try again. I liked the first one better, but I couldn’t remember what I actually did. .I tried to find a tutorial online, no such luck. Then I tried to find a nice clipart type graphic, no luck there either. I did find a graphic that I could purchase the rights to for almost $8, but I can’t rationalize purchasing something because I’m too lazy to do it myself. Have I mentioned how wonderful GIMP is recently? A simple circle, then a few paths converted to curves and ta-da!
