Pink Fruits...

...of last weekend's labors. I love these colors and how they blend and play against each other. I may actually knit something from this yarn!

What's Goin' On

My posts have really been sparce these days. Part of it was that I had a job that had me sitting at a computer 8 hours solid a day. When I got free time all I wanted to do was sleep or knit. But, life has freed my time up again and I am working on a bunch of unfinished projects and spinning too. Touching as much color as I can.

This is a mock cable rib which is sort of my default sock pattern. I can knit this baby in my sleep. The second one is nearly done and I've knit it one of my favorite yarns, Opal by Louet Sales. It keeps a nice sheen and is machine wash wool.

That's it you know, when all else fails, I know can knit a sock.

I got this merino when I was at the beach last month and I love spinning it. Still the drop spindle. I don't see that changing anytime soon...

The first bit of this I spun is on the right. See how non-descript and peachy it turned out? Then I started at the same point in the roving and the color started changing more as you can see on the spindle. I think it will blend well once I have plied it. Pretty anyhow I think.

Any Resemblance?

This is the lace TANK that I knit for KnitPicks and I am quite suprised to see it worn as a vest. It would have been so sexy, don't you think? I really liked knitting this and even though you have to buy a book to get the pattern, I would highly recommend it. The lace pattern is really easy and the eyelets are an interesting design detail.

Still, a good photo.

New Person

Gaby finally had her baby, although to the rest of us it all seemed to happen overnight, I think. He doesn't have a name yet. Waiting for something to emerge from his being in some way.

I could have held him forever and look forward to the time when I can hold him again.

Dear Gaby and Alex: You will be wonderful parents.

Long time

I know it's been a long time, but here's just a tease of what I've been working on. It's a single square for a collaborative project for a friend.
