the game: fiber

the game: fiber, originally uploaded by good little granola girl.

you've seen it here and there... and i wanted to play too. So when i saw the 'fiber edition" i knew it was the one for me.

1. first name: emily marie
2. favorite yarn: beaverslide dry goods
3. first thing you made with yarn: a cotton garter stitch dishcloth
4. favorite color: earth brown
5. which designer do you currently have a crush on: helloyarn (love her flickr stream)
6. your favorite handmade gift you received: a vintage red & white quilt
7. your dream project: a farm. dream big right?!
8. your favorite notion: bamboo knitting needles. can't do much with out that notion.
9. what will you make next: a wool cardigan, maybe like this one even.
10. what do love most about yarn: the variety
11. which one word describes your craft: peacefulness*
12. what is your main inspiration: the simply organic nature of knitting.

* i found this to be extremely challenging as all of my 'one word' descriptions were rather abstract feelings and i'm sorry, but white sandy beaches just didn't fit into my fiber/knitting love.

in nebraska there was a trailer

my dad purchased a 1949 Spartan Manor trailer from a fellow. So we went to help tow it back to Denver this past weekend. It's beautiful inside: birch wood everywhere. You can click on the picture to get to good ol flickr for more pictures of the inside. And if you'd like a little history on Spartan head here.
