Huge knitting stash off Craigslist

So I saw this posting and was mostly interested in the "tote" that apparently belonged to the woman's grandmother and great-grandmother. I'm not sure it's that old, but I love it.

Has anyone else gotten into making Amigurumi (little crocheted/knitted toys)?

I am looking for 6 ply sock yarn (75%wool and 25% nylon, more or less). Dennis who works at Romni in Toronto told me they carry a self striping one. I would prefer a solid colour.

Seriously OT

This one is for Buck Strong and anyone else who has ever taught school.

A little cynical, but none the less, toooooo true.

Knitting in San Diego, it keeps me in stitches...

One of those intro blogs that sort of lets you know who I am and what I am doing.

My husband, Dean and I live in San Diego and both of us knit; I am the one on the right in the red/blue shirt.

I need help from a size S guy

Hey - I want to knit a sweater for a good friend for his 40th, but there will be no sneaking into his closet and measuring a favorite sweater since he's busy packing up to move.

A Thursday Evening

And so it begins, my first blog. Well to begin with, I am in the early formation process with the Order of Friars Minor Conventuals (AKA Conventual Franciscans).
