Can I Cry Now?

I had finally finished up all my Christmas projects and decided to concentrate on my sock knitting.

Double-Pointed needles from Knit Picks

I recently had a hankering to knit a pair of socks using DPNs, despite my love of circular needles.

Tight for Christmas

Since money is so tight this year; slow sales in the pottery business, I solicited friends and relatives to send me skeins of there favorite yarns.

no sew vest???

I'm looking to do my first sweater. I'm no good at sewing and don't want to put the effort into something and have it come out bad. I am interested in doing a vest (no sleeves).

Drop Spindles

I am looking into learning how to hand spin my own yarn. I would like to start with a drop spindle. I wondered if anyone had a suggestion of a reputable site that sells drop spindles?

Another Snow Day...

So here I sit all snowed in. The snow here is deaper than the ground clearance on my Honda Element, so here I sit. I still have to work, producing a new web store for work.
