Cast On!

No, I don't get to knit yet. [sigh!] But I did get to have a cast party. Here's how it went...

It will be three more weeks. When the cast comes off, I will have a thumb splint and strengthening exercises. I can knit then. Here's what my cast looks like...…

Spring Arrives!

Nearly a month after the official first day of spring (aka vernal equinox), warmer weather finally arrives at 7200 feet above the Greater Salt Lake Valley. Here's one of my neighbors, going for a walk in the sun in front of my house. This always rattles Rocky's and Sunny's chain!

Water from Lourdes Cures Dyeing Knitter!

Well, no water from Lourdes was involved. I do wonder what water from that source would do to the color of the finished project. If you are into dyeing, you know that the content of the water affects the color you get. However, Here's what I did at my spinning class on Monday:
