Valentine cheer..

'Conversation Hearts' on vintage baby quilt.

Wren House DIY weaving class over Valentine's weekend.
The spring tree came along with the rainbow assortment of reclaimed yarns.

'Queen Red Lime'
as in
the zinnias I want to grow this summer.

Yarn, weaving, dyeing, dreaming of Spring was a great way to spend
a cold, snowy Valentine's weekend!

Yarn Along..

At the beginning of the the year I ripped out all my unfinished knits.
Kind of cleans the slate for the new year..

Then I happened upon a bag of yarn in a thrift store this week.

It contained one (almost) finished mitt,
One and a half balls of yarn,
the pattern.

Of course I bought the bag!

The yarn is fabulous ~ The Fibre Co. : Road to China

So I sat down and studied the mitt.

Rip it ~ or ~ knit it.


It was so much fun trying to figure out the size and gauge the knitter used.
I got to thinking about the lone mitt and how it ended up in a thrift store.

Why don't I feel so much love and curiosity for my
unfinished knits?

The other mitt will be finished soon.
I'll be a bit sad when they are finished but the journey was sure fun!

~ Happy Knitting ~

Cheering on Spring.

Knitting with my mentor's gorgeous hand spun yarn.
Perfect ear warmer for someone who can't get a hat over her bun of hair.

Springtime coffee table:
Seed catalogues, thrift store finds, and casting on my first garment.

Planting ideas...
