I am knitting a Potatoe Chip Scarf ..to get away from some of my WIP...that is a bit boring and taxing.
Didn't think I would ever think knitting boring LOL
I am using a maroonish alpaca yarn I bought pre/ finding KnitPicks site.
I found this a bit challenging using this yarn for other projects...tried many patterns before just stashing it away.
And it is so heavenly soft...I desperately wanted to use it....
EUREKA ..moment...I tried knitting the PCS with…Continue

This is gonna have to be a fast and furious blog cause that has been the pace of my life lately and if I'm not careful everything will truck on without me. Momentum, what can you do about it?
so I got a spinning wheel at the end of February. Here it is, my Kromski Sonata in walnut, some of you will notice that even though I tried like hell to have a wheel different from my mums, I don't. I am really happy with it, even though we have had a few troubles.…Continue
I've been trying to keep up with this KAL, but my day job keeps interfering with my knitting! Don't you just hate that?! Anyway, staying busy trying to keep our customers cool and this a short week as DH and I will be leaving for Dallas Thursday morning. Maybe, depends on how busy I keep him. Even FiFi has to wait for the money to roll in. :)

I'm an active member of Baby Threads of New Hampshire, we knit scarves, hat and mittens for children and people in need. I am trying to create a pattern for mittens but need a little help with finding a chart that shows a range of measurements for hand sizes. I need a chart that can provide average age to size so that I can better work out the instructions. It can be a little hard to knit a pair of mittens for a 5 year old if you don't have idea how long a 5 year old's hand…Continue
I have a secret, I love to shop at thrift stores, it's not just that I'm frugal, (a polite word for cheap), but I love the thrill of the hunt. To that end I have over the past year found miles of yarn. my wife calls me a yarn slut. I had no idea how fast one could accumulate so much yarn, and even though I have done several projects I still lots of yarn to work with.
So if any of you know of any projects that could help me bust this stash please let me know.
Last night was the first time since Tuesday night Prayer Shawls meeting that I actually picked up needles and did ANY knitting! Gasp. It was shocking for my DH as well. But I have begun the Lenten Mystery KAL.
I am using all stashed yarns, mostly recently hand dyed…Continue

We've had the 2nd gathering of my new knit/crochet group,Fellowship & Fiber, this morning at my church. The challenge of our new group is that the other leader and I are the only ones who knew how to knit and/or crochet. So this is very much a learn to knit/crochet group for starters, but the other leader, my friend Ginny, and I do plan on trying to get everyone to "give back" through a charity project or two. So far I've taught one person to knit, and helped 4 others learn to…Continue
I'm going to have to just tell you about my adventures... and add pictures whenever I can get some good ones. And blogs aren't as much fun without pictures.... so you'll get it here!! Quite a while ago I read on Ravelry (I think) someone's recommendation to someone else to put the dye bath in a ziploc baggie, throw the soaking yarn or roving in there, zip it up,…
