I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Test Knitting

In December I did a little bit of test knitting for my girlfriend, Deby. She gave me the o.k. to put these on my blog. I still have to finish the mate on the purple/blue pair.


Spinning Fiber

I got this polypay from my friend Leah. She also dyed this fiber and the colors are really cool. Teal, blues, yellows. It is light and lofty with some nubs which I think will give it a cool texture for a cardigan someday. I got a little over 2.5 lbs.
Leah dyed this merino for me on saturday this soft girly shade of pink. I plan on plying it with some singles I had already spun in shades of pink.



I had a very nice fibery weekend. I got alot of spinning done on this Coopworth. It looks to be a worsted weight. I really like the light lofty look. It has such a nice creamy color. I had a total of two lbs and only less than a half pound left to spin. I am not sure what it will become

Un-Spun Hat

Isn't this little hat adorable? The pattern is free in the Knit Picks catalog and the yarn was left over from my Un-Spun sweater. That is all the pictures I have for now. I made 3 scarves that are already gone to their recipients as well as 3 pairs of felted clogs and 2 fancy face cloths. I wish I would have taken pictures before they left.


Finished Falling Water Lace Scarf

I finally finished my Falling Water Lace Scarf from my handspun. I really enjoyed this pattern and although I had too much twist in my yarn, I enjoyed knitting it just the same. I guess it is something about using something you made yourself. Anyhow it is super soft with a very nice halo. I thought the striping came out cool too, something I originally didn't expect.

I'm Back

I thought I should post a note to say I haven't forgot about my blog.
I had been so busy during the holidays making Christmas presents and I didn't take the time to take pictures or post my projects. I worked right up until Christmas eve morning finishing them. I also did a little test knitting for Deby and I can't post those pictures yet either.

I am currently working on my Falling Water Lace Scarf and should be done with that soon. I am also finishing the second socks to the test knit socks. I haven't done any more with my Tilted Duster in a while and I need to dig that back out.

My favorite thing about blogs are looking at pictures of all the knitting projects people have going. I am hoping to do the same and get pictures up very soon. Until then, knit on!
