What am I up to now?
I've been knitting a great big, thick yarn cowl since this winter. Getting too warm to do any knitting on it right now.
Finishing up a jacket made with my handwoven fabric, blog posts to follow.
Working on two sewing projects - blog posts to come!
Ideas on fabric I would like to weave to make a skirt to go with the jacket.
UFOs which really need tending to!

It’s been a while, and I am sorry about that. I’ve rewritten many drafts of this post and nothing seems to flow. I feel that my muse has left; I’m holding on to the thought that I’m just rusty! I … Continue reading
I’m still in the shawl rut track. Well, technically this is a shawlette since it’s small. Shawlette seems to be a word invented by the knitting community since I can’t find it in any dictionary, but a Google search will … Continue reading
I remember when I was a kid in art class and the only thing that would come to mind when I looked at a lump of clay was “Ashtray!” This is now my fourth shawl that I blog about and … Continue reading
This project was addictive! On Sunday the 12th I started this shawl and it was so much fun to knit that I had it pretty much finished one week later, on the 19th. I did the final touches to it … Continue reading
