Fun Sheep Stuff

So I’m still slogging away on my cardigan, and haven’t woven anything this week…so I thought I should finally share some stuff I’ve been putting off taking pictures of. The sun finally came out this afternoon and I could take some pics.

My roommate (absolutely amazing and fabulous roommate who clearly knows me and what I l love so well) went to China and Korea recently with a Yale choral group. She sent us a Korean postcard with a LOVE LAMB on it!

In China, she picked me up this cute stationery organizer that was clearly destined to be a knitting supply organizer. It fits the cute little sock DPNs in the pencil section perfectly, and I’ve been keeping stitch holders in the little drawers. The lift up flap in front has my yarn needles in it.

It says “The Sheep: Hello my Friend” on the front drawers.

And when you lift the flap, it says “Separate the sheep and the goats.” Just like Jesus says there will be separating of sheep and goats. However, I doubt that’s what the makers of adorable Chinese school supplies were thinking of…


I spent Wednesday in Meriden, CT, and decided to track down the Yarn Garden. It’s a cute shop and everyone there was super-friendly. I picked up a Lantern Moon origami tote – it’s just beautiful and has all kinds of fun pockets.

I also picked up a sock blocker keychain – this ought to be fun!

About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
