The Spin-in finished on Monday.

My fiber was 4 oz. of hand-painted Polwarth wool roving from Greenwood Fiberworks in "Lavender Hedgerow."

I was really out of practice, so this was good for me. I…

Oh dear, where did the time go?!

Last time I blogged here, I was reporting that we had a new home on the horizon - nw I can report that all went well, and we've been in the new place for eight months!!  I really do need to make more of an effort to keep up with the blogging lark ;)

So, here's my latest attempt to keep in touch, and hopefully it will be more successful than last time [and the time before!] 

This year, I have a list.

This year, I'm going to cross things off my list, and really concentrate…

Lent 2015

It's that time of the year again - Lent.

In the past few years, I've found lent really lovely in the run up to Easter, especially with the online prayer shawl group I'm in usually making a KAL / CAL for prayer shawls. It helps me remember what this season is about, remember the word and promise God gave me for the prayer shawl ministry (of one, at the time) at our church, and pass on the love that God put into my heart to share around.

This year, I've signed up for one prayer…

Holiday Stash Knit Down

I actually made some set and achieved some knitting goals that past holiday season. I managed to knit down the stash by some where in the neighborhood of 21 skeins of yarn. This effort produced a plague of alligator scarves (7), 3 fuzzy red keyhole scarves, one Bama colored scarf, 1 fuzzy red hat, I pair of fingerless mitts, half foot socks, 1pair of fuzzy red leg warmers, and one cap-sleeved, seamless sweater. I used no patterns for the mitts, half socks, and anything that was made from the… Continue

One Sweater, Two Sweater, Three Sweater More

  At what point do you begin to think you have knitting ADHD? I have begun three different sweater projects and I switch between all of them every evening. Is that weird?  Oh, did I mention I also have a crocheted blanket going too?

Sweater one, front…

High Fiber—Goodbyes

This was the week we said goodbye to visiting grandkids.

When I took Soren and his family to the airport I learned that he didn't have a hat that fit, so I dug through my stash when I got back and found some Swish DK in "Dusk." I CO immediately.

I'm using…

High Fiber—Winding Down the Year

Christmas day at our house started out like this:

It execrated from there. In a word: Bedlam!

The day after Christmas is my birthday. Rather than go out to breakfast as we usually do, we ate at home and the ladies went out for pedicures. Miss Daphne got her first pedicure.…
