I've been knitting on something every day... not always what I should be knitting on, but still knitting.

I'm trying to knit arm chair covers for my husband's recliner. I have the yarn, and I've been knitting, but the Log Cabin pattern just isn't holding my attention like it should. I may frog it and do something else. Don't know what yet, but something else.

I'm trying my hand at spinning, and got some baby doll sheep roving from my fiber farmer friend. It just doesn't look like yarn yet - though in places it is close.


Yesterday I visited my fiber farmer friend to make a wet felted pouch as a guinea pig. She wrote the instructions herself, and wanted to make sure that someone who had never done this before could read, understand and do what they were suppose to do. It took about two hours, and voila my wet felted pouch in teal green.


Today I just couldn't stand knitting any of my ongoing projects and I remembered some Essential Sock yarn that I bought last fall, and planned to knit socks for my son, but then changed my mind and knit him something else. Then I planned to knit the socks for my husband after Christmas, but never got around to it. So today I cast on and started knitting the socks.

That is when you "pull out the yarn" on on something you've knitted... I forget where the term came from, but I kinda like it.

What is frogging?

Spinning is something I've always admired, but I must realize my limitations. I'm too impatient of a knitter to wait. Beautiful color though!
