In transit..

A little car knitting while in transit to visit family in Ohio yesterday...

One of the joys of knitting with hand spun yarn
is seeing how the colors work in your project.

Makes it hard to put the needles down..

Yarn Along..

Dreary days call for fun fiber!

Hand spun fun made from these..

Little "nests" of merino wool that I hand dyed
and blended with fluffy blended recycled sari silk.

After hand dying some merino / silk yarn to match the hand spun, I headed off to the loom..

The results .. 
A fun, soft, winter blues busting scarf!

Current library love:

A perfect read..
captured in bed while listening to the wind.

Nothing better than counting sheep (literally) before drifting off..

Yarn Along..

One Antarktis wrap completed and blocked.

This time of year there are so many projects on the needles.
Christmas gifts, 
prior unfinished projects, 
but that didn't stop me from joining in for a knit-along..  
So another project on the needles.

No details today as it already needs frogged (rip-it, rip-it)..
thinking I need to restart with smaller needles.

What do you prefer?
One project at a time or many?

I love having options..
