Pardon my schmutz. The car needs a bath. I've been working on my handspun Stella while trying to fight spring and her crafty minions. Meds helped but the side-effects were not enjoyable, so now I'm sucking it up and praying... Continue reading

Julia Project Page I should have used more of the pink on the long side. However, by the time I got to the long side, I had seen the entire run of Dexter and really needed to move on. Don't... Continue reading

Having a fabulous long birthday weekend, thanks. Ran up to Reno on Saturday and spent some time with PinkyD. After a fabulous lunch, we went to her LYS, Jimmy Beans Wool. Maybe you've heard of it. I needed yarn for... Continue reading

It's easy to do if you're not working on sleeves. It has issues but I still love it. There's also a handspun handknit merino/silk/yak scarf that does not want to dry. I'm sure running a vaporizer for hours on end... Continue reading

Mindless with amazing handspun yarn is much better than boring sleeves. The downside that the sweater with sleeves in progress now seems to be living in the Ottoman of Shame. The weather has taken a turn for the winter-like, so... Continue reading

And I shall call him Semi because it's sort of a Sockhead hat. I never stopped ribbing, did the decreases differently and used less yarn. Whatever. It's fabulous and I love it. I love that it's long enough to fold... Continue reading

And what a week we're having! Here's my mindless knitting. Cast on as a SockHead Sock, but I'm so in love with the ribbed fabric and how it hides issues with the handspun yarn, that I think I'm going to... Continue reading

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
