BACK


Crazy busy around here but I did some things done.  Socks knit from Miss Babs.  I'm not sure what the color is but I call them bubble gum socks.



Nina Philips had a mystery knit along.  What fun!  She's an amazing designer.  This the first shawl I knit in DK weight yarn.  I knit it in Barnette Yarn and highly recommend it.




Our fiber group, Fiber and Friends had our first show at the Millersburg Art Gallary in Millersburg.  I warp my loom and it sat in the window of the gallary.  Now I just need to finish weaving the fabric off.




My new Country Craftsman spinning wheel.  I had a bit of a problem dealing with the tension at first but now that I've gotten used to it I love it.  I only wish the bobbins were bigger.  But when I think about it those wheel always had smaller bobbins.  I guess I'm just used of the larger ones.




Speaking of larger bobbins I've been spinning a merino and silk blend.  The colors are much softer in person I don't know why it shows up so dark.




I bought a project bag from Fringe (love it) and used it to store my demin socks while I was knitting them.





Finally I have just off the needles my shortie summer socks.  I love the colors and fit.
