What, TWO YEARS later???

I haven't been here in forever. Time to get myself back into my writing groove, I think...

My knitting is continuing. I'm currently working on two active projects, and have one "hibernating." It's my Log Cabin Moderne afghan...it's big enough that working on it in the summer is just not appealing...

The active projects are some convertible mitts for Josh, the blue and green project to the left. It's a pattern taken from an old knitting book, "Mens Mittens" by Jaeger Handknits. I'm usin an Opal sock yarn that he chose.

I'm also working on a"Mara" shawl. I'm in LOVE with the yarn for that one. It's Tosh DK, and like all of Madeline Tosh's yarns, it's beautifully dyed and marvelously squooshy soft! It's a lovely red, "Tart."

I've taken up spinning since last posting. LOVE that. I began on an Ashford Scholar, Minerva, that I bought from one of the girls in my SnB group. For my last birthday, the man bought me a Kromski Sonata, and I am totally in love with her. I named her Wanda, and she allows me to spin with far less pain. I'll need to get a nice photo of her for the blog.
