In-Depth Review of Shelter yarn created by Jared Flood at Knitter’s Review. I’m smitten with this yarn and I find wool unbearably itchy, here is why: he sourced wool from sheep in the US and from US breeds, the yarn is spun in a US mill. Also, this description from Clara made me swoon: “The fibers were then scoured, dyed, and carefully blended together to create 17 different colors — not dunk-dyed unidimensional solids, but gently nuanced heathers built upon at least two, sometimes three or more different hues.” Buy Shelter here, Jared Flood patterns for this yarn are here.

    Bramble Berry’s soap calc is the first ap I’ve wanted that I can’t get for my Droid. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that one will come out soon!

    I haven’t done cold process soap, but I used to troll the Bramble Berry site all the time!

    I also really want to try the Shelter yarn.

    Kat – I wonder how difficult it is to do both? I’m going to go ahead as say you’d need an entirely new development environment. I’ll keep an eye out and let you know if it comes out for the Droid.

    Seanna Lea – Bramble Berry has been around as long as I have known one could buy their own essential oils! I hope to check out he Shelter yarn but, being sensitive to wool, I’m hesitant to pay for shipping on top of it.

    Re: The Knit Kit
    You caught my attention. Knit Kits are a huge part of my life whether riding in a taxi, car, bus or airplane. I always have one handy!
    I was excited to read about the one you had found. It is definately a step up from my current model: a Ziploc bag!
    I had a few issues.
    I travel for work so I meet a lot of airport security officers. They almost always hesitate is scissors are involved. Even approved models. But they never even notice my stealthy pendant cutter: http://www.clover-usa.com/product/22699/3106/_/Yarn_Cutter_PendantAntique_Silver
    You have definately inspired me. I am working on my McGyver Style Knit Kit as we speak! Plenty of tested on the skys, on the roads , and on the rails tools and techniques.
    Here’s one to tide you over: hide your precious steel lace knitting pins in the coin pocket of your hinged wallet. Works like a dream!

    If you like Jared, then you’ll love the fact that he’s doing a friggin’ knitting cruise Sept. 2011 – departs from Seattle. Worth a look especially since he’s pretty much amazing.
