Thursday Update! Progress on the Kimono Jacket

April 7, 2011

Hi friends,

I hope you’re having a great day. I’ve been knitting all morning but alas I need to do some “work work”. But as soon as I’m done I’m going back to finishing this kimono jacket because I am seriously having a blast with it. The colors are just my cup of tea!

What do you think?

Tuesday Update:I lost my marbles

March 22, 2011

It’s true. It’s Tuesday and my second, third and fourth winds have abandoned me and all we’re left with is one crazy owner of Darn Good Yarn.

I hope you get a laugh, I know I did…. I have been told I’m my own best friend…that’s a good thing right?

Much love!

Nicole

Call to Action: Join the Craft Crusade

March 11, 2011

Hi friends,

The video below pretty much says it all. But if you own a shop or would like to join me on my crusade to donate to the Red Cross to help out with what is going on in Japan, email me and let’s talk nicole@darngoodyarn.com

And, let’s give thanks for what we have in the now.

Namaste,

Nicole

Got a dilemma?

March 1, 2011

Hi friends!

Great picture eh? Mike took it of me when we were on a trip in NYC after visiting my mommy. We went to this wine bar and they were closed, it was hot, I was grumpy and voila…. :)

So I just wanted to use this time to extend to you the forum to send me any questions or dilemmas you might encounter. Did you mess up your knitting? Are you having a problem finding patterns? Did your dog run away? Shoot ‘em at me and I’ll consult my power team and get back to you with an answer!

Who’s first?

J’adore Goulet Pens!

February 25, 2011

Bonjour mes amis!

So, if you’re hooked up with Darn Good Yarn then you’re a supporter of non-”big boxed” businesses. Many of us live in communities where these publicly traded companies have bled out the small “mom and pops”. This is why I wanted to bring another great company: The Goulet Pen Company: http://www.gouletpens.com

Go check em out!

Way more cool than me

January 31, 2011

Hi friends!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I am almost finished with a hat made out of Parisian Confection Wool Yarn.

But I wanted to share with you a cool website, that is way more cool than me. Let me preface this by saying that I love looking at fashion and design websites because they inspire me to make cool new yarns blends along with up-and-coming designs that we can all incorporate into our lives. So this cool new website is: Ice Cream and Pizza (click me).

Check out today’s post… yum YSL nail color. Did you see the shine on that?

And if you want to be even cooler than that, “Like” the facebook page for Ice Cream and Pizza so you can get updates! Click here to do that!

Insprired yet?!

xoxo
