I finished the ORANGE socks that I love and needed something new to knit. I have some amazing gradients waiting for me but couldn't decide on a pattern. I saw my merino/cashmere/nylon handspun in the stash and knew I needed... Continue reading

Sort of disappointing after the hat and the socks that I'm still working on, but it's what I've got. Well, that and a fabulous spinning project that doesn't look like much yet. Isn't that always the way? Exciting, right? Continue reading

Perfect for drinking tea, nibbling cookies, and working on my sweater. With luck, this weekend I will have enough sweater to see if it's going to work or not. I love the color but the yarn is killing me. If... Continue reading

Exactly two years after I blogged my handspun $5 In Paris, I cast on for another one. This time, with store-bought yarn. Drama-free, solid colored, lovely, happy, friendly, store-bought yarn. The colour is slightly off, of course. I haven't gotten... Continue reading
