New Project

New wool rug projects are in my head and now there is some wool on the bobbins to start the projects tomorrow.
Weave on, or "Art On" as my friend Julie says.

This last picture and the yarn pictured are "cat approved".

January Is Sock Month(for me and Fibertwin)

Yikes! The month is almost gone and so much has happened this month I don't know where to begin. I did say it's January, well someone did not tell Mother Nature here in Northwest Arkansas. Jonquils are coming up and yes, those little red heads poking up are peonies. Peonies, in January? It is too, too soon.

Socks, socks and more socks. Here are some lovely sage socks knitted on #1's. I really love knitting on 1's. Madeline Tosh. Very nice yarn a little moody...and speaking of moody check out this great color called Morning Glory from Dream in Color. Fibertwin and I joked this weekend while knitting Dream in Color and Nightmare on Needles. Beautiful, wonderful yarn, but it is 8ply and a bit persnickety. Then last but not least good old Jitterbug, easy as pie to knit, nice combo here from the 2 skeins I had to buy to make a special pair last year. These socks will wake you up.
Last, but not least a bit of my new weaving in my studio with my dear friend's handspun, hand-dyed yarns from New Mexico. I woven 29 inches so far so just another 20 or so to go and I am already dreaming of the next one... Life is good!
