Saga of the Rings

At first I used plastic ring markers but found them tacky. So I bought some very nice sterling silver bejewelled markers online- very pretty but they fall apart at the jewel.

Taking my FO for a spin.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Blast from the past

Anyone remember the stocking caps from the 1970's that were so long you could wrap them around your neck as a scarf while wearing them as hats?

Progress Report

As you can see, blizzards are conducive to knitting. Soon I'll have to pause and spin up some more yarn to finish up.

I did it.

I cut the arm and neck steeks yesterday with a little encouragement from my Bud. The sweater did not explode, nor did the knitting police come and haul me off.

Point of no return

I am now ready for the big moment- cannot afford to make a misteek.

Wooly Board

I've just received a wooly board that I ordered from Camilla Valley Farm. It arrives with assembly required and at the time I opened the package I was too sleep deprived to handle it.

Taking a break

Taking a break from the spinning for a minute for a quick post. A few pics of yarn making- I'm working on the grey; next the black, then back to the needles.
