wee tiny socks...

...too cute.
there is a great sense of accomplishment with knitting, even when it is a small project.

life is always changing...

...and thankfully, in this craziness we call life, there are such simple tasks as knitting and spinning. something so simple and repetitive is sometimes what keeps me...calm.

i am still plugging away at my kauni...

...started a new project...

 attempt at navajo plying...

...and spinning...

warmth for the winter

thanks to my good friend i will be warm this winter. she helped me make double fleece blankets for my two beautiful children. afterwards i thought to myself...they are not the only ones needing warmth, i am the coldest one in this igloo. so i went shopping and created this when i got home. hopefully it will help on those cold winter nights.

life does happen

i am back! life amongst the swim lessons, dirty laundry, vacation, family visits, more dirty laundry...i think you get the point...i continued to spin every chance i got, but did not reach my tour goal. i am looking forward to things settling down so i can get back to spinning and knitting, the two things in this world that keep me patient and sane.

i am looking forward to knit night tonight with my best friend. i have neglected her in all this hustle and bustle as well. knitting, spinning, wine and salsa...a great way to spend the evening with a wonderful and patient friend.

stage 5

it is now stage 5 of the tour and i am still committed. after confining myself to the living room last evening to spin...for reasons i will not divulge...i finished spinning 2oz of corriedale ~watermelon~ it is a very fun bright pink and red. i also began plying my ~tide pool~ beautiful greens, purples and blues, my colors. 8oz is a lot of fiber to ply...amazing the difference between 4oz and 8oz, i think my back knows the difference.

tomorrow is another day. hopefully the aches and pains will be left behind, there are many days left of the tour.

stage 2

it is only two days into the tour and so far i have been able to achieve my goal...30 minutes devoted to spinning each day. that is not very much time i know, however i was not able to devote that time until 10:00 this evening. nonetheless, i have completed my goal...for today. i have high hopes for tomorrow, i will be plying my tide pool. i am thrilled. this will be my first skein of yarn on my new wheel! :)
