Finished Objects

A moebius  shawl, finished in 6 days.

DSC_0005And a new design, still has no name if anyone has any suggestions that would be great other wise it will be named something obvious like lace hat.

Clue #7


I finished my shawl today.  I can’t wait to show it off at knit night!

Also, when we went for a walk today, Sammie crashed and it was just so cute!


Birthday Presents and fun

I love the yarn family singers, they always make me laugh.

My birthday wasn’t very exciting this year, but it was a good day.  I received a text from Ranna, a card from Britta and her fam, calls from my side of the family that I missed because I left my phone down stairs and at home while we were out.

When Eric was leaving, he gifted me with this.


8 oz of bare Blue Faced Leister roving.  Amy I have something to dye when you get here.

Emma also picked out something.


I finished a project just in time for the Market on Sat.


When Eric got home we went to coldstone to use my free coupon.  We took Justin alone because he and Emma had a bet that who ever got their rooms cleaned faster the other would have to buy them Ice Cream.  Emma won.

We all went to wal-mart to pick up vanilla pudding for the Amish Friendship Bread, which I will be taking to knit night.

After dropping Justin off we went to Sam’s club where I spent the money Britta gave me.


After Sam’s club we ran over to Borders to use my birthday coupon on Eric’s book.  On the off chance of something good in the knitting section, I took a look.  Justin’s birthday money bought me this.

dsc_0040I have been obsessed with socks lately and what could be better!

When we got home we unloaded the car, made the Amish Freindship cakes.  I doubled the recipe so I did 2 cakes instead of bread.  Then we made dinner and watched Twilight.  We picked that up at Sam’s club too.

Weekend of dyeing!

Kami I need up close pictures of your wool and yarn!

WIP Wednesday

Someone stop me now! I have 15 projects on the needles!

Wooltrek and Dye day!

Dreary (it rained all day) and early yesterday morning, Kami, Tina and I headed up to wooltrek.  We spent a full and fun day of spinning, dyeing, wool fondeling and buying.  Here are the pictures of our day.

Tina if you have a picture of me and kami dyeing I would appreciate a copy.  Also, I didn’t get a picture of what you dyed!  We have a very fun and exhausting day!

Fun in the Sun

We got to play outside yesterday.  Sammie attacked my tulips.
