Why hello!

I haven’t been blogging much lately, she says stating the obvious… but I have been knocking out some hand knits! I’ve been working on a few test knits for a friend and trying to clear out the bins of projects near my seat on the couch.

In the fall I had my friend Katy cast this cowl on for me cause she didn’t have anything to do at knit night one night. Of course, by the time I finally picked it up I couldn’t figure out what was going on and I had to re-cast it on. Hah. Then I spent 5 tries on row 2 or 3 before I finally figured out the difference between a & and a β. Oy. This lovely cowl came about though once I got moving on knitting it and that’s one less project bag in the basket by the couch!

I also had some fun with swatches. One set for a McIntosh sweater for myself from Gudrun’s new book “Knit With Me.”

The other batch was for one of my test knits.

Lastly, this lovely squishy pile of yarn from Quince & Co is for another one of the sweaters from Gudrun’s new book – Empire and as yet to be determined pullover for myself.

Oh and in the background is all of the spinning I need to get around to doing…more news on that later. As soon as I find a way to add 2-3 more hours in a day and manage to also not spend that 2-3 hours surfing the interwebs!
