About Me

I'm never bored. If I'm not knitting or spinning, I'm gardening or reading. Always up to something!

Ready for Color in the New Year

Christmas knitting...neutral and wearable

Charcoal cables for my daughter
Blue Barley hat for my son
The granddaughter wanted owls
Her boyfriend got a Sockhead hat in Knitpicks' Thunderhead

But look at what's coming! Soft, rich, sophisticated COLOR! Not hot and flashy, not neon, baby pastels or candy colors... ...just lovely, warm and wearable!

Contented

 Spinning wool as soft and as white as Santa's beard.
 Grandchildren with chubby cheeks to kiss.
 Flowers from my husband celebrating the day we met.
 Rows of owls on the brim of a hat, waiting for little button eyes.
 Summer spinning, finally plied and skeined.
 Apple sour cream pie for Thanksgiving.
 Fluffy plied yarn, ready to knit or dye.
A little red felted bird to keep me company while I spin.
I hope everyone takes time to enjoy the wonders of the season.
