Looks like Puxatony Phil was right. We woke up to this mess this morning. When it was all said and done right around 6 inches fell with more in the forecast for tomorrow night.
A good friend took a bead knitting class and made me and another friend each a bead knit neck warmer. Boy, sure does make me feel classy!
An early Happy Valentine's Day. This is my hand woven heart runner and some of my heart shaped cookie cutters. I keep thinking I'm going to make cookies and use them but so far haven't.

My last infinity scarf. Its knit in a wool blend and an assortment of colors. This was made by casting on as many stitches as you wish then knitting three rounds then purling three rounds. These turn out very will and are so easy to make.
In my last posting I posted a draw down and this scarf is the result of the scarf. Its a nice soft wool. It got a little long but other than that very nice. I wove it on my eight harness 16 inch Ashford table loom. This little loom is great for weaving scarves.
This hat is knit in the round with knit three purl 2 after some decreasing at the top I put in some yarn over knit two together to create some holes near the top for ribbon. After a few more rounds I just casted off leaving the top open and if you have a pony tail it can be fit through the top. Cute even if you don't have a pony tail.
I picked this Navajo women weaving at the thrift store. I have one but this wonder women is much prettier.

I've been doing some spinning. Left is the roving. Nice soft yarn.
I was so lucky to get some Polish Pottery for Christmas. The cocoa pot is from Bill, cups from my sister Annie and the kitten from my granddaughter Amber. Thanks everyone.
I've also been working on some draw downs to weave scarves and shawls. Don't pay to much attention to the colors I'm just testing different colors. I hope to have a sample scarf on my table loom this week. If it turns out I'll take a picture and post it and if not it will hit the trash can.
I've added two blogs to my index. Pioneer Woman! Ree Drumond. She has a show on the Food Network and published cookbooks both of which I love.
Also Strings 'n' Things. A fellow fiber artist and all around farmer. Wonderful blog.

A knit slouch hat in brown wool blend yarn. I like these. Not only are they easy to knit they work up fast.
I've had these four skeins of hand spun hand dyed 2 ply mohair yarn for some time but with my new yarn winder have finally gotten the exact yardage count. I'm going to put these up on my Etsy site but since I haven't sold anything so far I don't expect to much. Has anyone out these had any luck selling on Etsy? I'd love to know if you don't mind sharing that information.
I was at Joann Fabric and spotted this little Christmas elf. Could I leave him in the store sitting on the shelf? No so he came home with me so we could spend the holidays together.
We had our first snow yesterday. Ok, its not a lot compared to other parts of the country but still nice. This is the farm across the road from our house. They also farm three sides of our house.
Our holly bush. Pretty.
HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!!
