batch of buttons and sent them to me. They are beautiful!

Ten years of knitting

This fall marks ten years that I took a class at Northampton Wools and learned to knit.

What am I working on now? I'm nearly done with this sweater vest for my niece. Wild vanilla.

A beautiful day in the neighborhood

Sunfloweryarns hexis

There are even more now. Must start on Christmas presents, but I'm in a groove making hexis from the Sunfloweryarns mini skeins. Each mini is making two (or almost two) hexis.

Ok so I didn't do much crawling. But look at the little beauty I found a Butterfly Yarns. In Indian Corn. Just right for the season.

Five years of Ravelry

Today is the 5th anniversary of my Ravelry account. Woohoo. I love Ravelry.

Pictured--a plying ball of Spunky Eclectic merino/tussah in Limpid Pools.
In the process if plying now. The Fiber Revival this past weekend
brought my spinning mojo back.

Yes, I've worked on other projects in the past 3 months, but this is my current obsession. I bought the pattern last summer, but didn't get started until last week. I had plenty of yarn lying around, what I didn't have was the rest of my set up--a perfect little bag to carry things around in, and tiny size 4 dpn. Once I acquired those things the hexis began.

And, I finally found what I wanted to spend my Loopy Ewe gift certificate on--yes, can you believe I've had it for 2.5 years.

We'll see how long the obsession lasts.
