It's the inaugural blog post here at Zahra Jade Designs, and where better to kick things off than here in Chicago at Stitches MIdwest. Inspiration is in abundance here.  It's difficult not to be overwhelmed with the urge to knit, weave, crochet, dye, felt, spin, braid, . . . Managing to take it all in while remaining focused is a challenge, but what a fun challenge!

These skeins of dip-dyed bamboo in the Yarn Barn of KS booth were begging me to mix and match them into a tie-dyed plaid. Hmmm. Haight-Ashbury meets Burberry?
