In the spirit…Continue
Ever have a hard time writing that first sentence in you blog post? I do sometimes. Especially since I am trying to be more regular with my blogging again. Well now that I have shared that random thought and got a few sentences out the way. Lets talk.
This week has been all about the spinning and a little dyeing. It amazes how many yards, pounds even of fiber that as been spun and plied on this TdF. I so wish I was able to spin as much. These are not only spinning wheel spinners but…Continue

Has it really been three months since my last blog post?! Jeez talk about falling behind. Goodness I've missed hanging around here. I so need to catch up in SAL, and few other KAL. Not to mention my slow moving CLiC. LOL! OK so this is what I'll do. I"ll show you quick ( this is a spontaneous post ) what I've been up to this week and then slowly fill you in on what's been on or off my needles the last three months. My lip ( life in progress), spinning ect.... Lets try this shorter more often…Continue
Goodness. I went into my draft to see what blog I was working on a couple of weeks ago. Here I had these pictures. I remember now. I was going to blog how after writing in my last blog post about my UFO plan that it lasted only 24 hours before casting on something new. Hehe.. I can't help. Anyway these are two washcloths that I knit out of some Simply cotton in Marshmallow. I LOVE this yarn. The other is out of Comfy Sport.…Continue
Well here it is the blog post I have been putting off. Not totally on purpose. Neck pain and life once again got in the way of my knitting world. Feeling better today so no time like the present to face..the UFO's!
Yep there they all are. Except for my pi shawl. Which is sleeping and will come out to play someday.…Continue
What did I do before I became a knitter? Seriously. Here it was a few days before my co-workers birthday and I needed a gift. Now with all the cold and flu that hit my household the last couple of weeks. My knitting time was not as much I would have liked. So out to the stores I go. Hours I looked from store to store trying to find a present. The whole time thinking I bet she would really like some thicker socks. Nope I tell myself this person is going to think more socks? I just gave a her…Continue
If you are wondering why you are seeing two blog post from me on the same day the answer is simple. The first blog post was meant for last week but I got sick and this blog post is for this week and I'm still sick. I figure might as well post while I can. I know I said I would talk about UFO's but change of plans. Plans always change when one is sick. Don't they?
So here we go. My answer to getting my knitting fix when sick. Start a new project. What?! Yep my answer is start a new…Continue

All of these socks have been knit with Knit Picks yarn. So let the parade begin!
First up are these fun sock I…Continue
OK we are just going to jump right into things. This was going to be for Wednesday but I finished it and so I clicked the publish button. Who knows it could be Wednesday when you read this or you get two posts in one day tonight. Its mainly playing catch up so hopefully my blog post will not be so long. Then maybe it will be easier for me to post more often without having these long time lapse between posts.
First the update.…Continue
