(Just Another) Melange Monday

Hello everyone - it's Memorial Day here in the United States, and of course it's Monday, so time for melange.

In honor of the holiday, I point you toward The Legacy Project, started in 1998 by Andrew Carroll. It's an attempt to document the country's memories of war through the letters of those who served. In the more than 13 years since it's been in existence, the project has compiled enough letters to launch four separate books, live exhibits, two television specials and an online collection. Definitely check out the online collection - but be warned, war is hell.


I continue to be elbow-deep in projects for publication later this year. It's difficult to work on things and not be able to share them, so the best I can do currently is share the fiber I'm working with. This week, it included the below two skeins:

Anyone who's been reading this blog for a while knows how much I love, love, love Kureyon, and this colorway (#95) did not disappoint. The sticky quality of Kureyon's wool is just as big an appeal as the amazing colorways. Look for the project associated with these yarns to be published in early fall.


Finally, I leave you will a snapshot of a very moody, yet cool Pacific Northwest sky. Memorial Day weekend is always a weather crapshoot here in the northwest corner, and this weekend was definitely more of the same. Nevertheless, we managed to have sun two of the three days, so hopefully everyone had an opportunity to get their bbq on in between the showers.

Not too shabby - I'll take it!
