Spinning something new

Quite some time ago I posted about how I had gotten interested in spinning fiber on a drop spindle. Since then I have acquired a few spindles, mostly Turkish, and have gotten in a fair amount of practice.

Great nephew's sweater

I had to do the neck to finish this and accomplished that this morning. Little Ben will be two in January. I used a pattern that I made up myself that is roughly based on EZ's percentage system. DK acrylic (that I bought here in Mexico) and 4mm needles.

Socks

Just finished up three pairs of socks that I will give to my brother and sisters for their birthdays. I lost the label for the sock on the left, the middle one is Opal, and the one on the right is Zauberball. I used my mother's recipe with 2.25mm needles.

Heading to Florida

Hi Guys. If anyone is in the central part of Florida and would like to offer me safe haven from dear old mom, I would love the opportunity to sit and knit at your place. Lunch will be on me! I may need to escape her smothering...I mean mothering...for an evening or two as I have a hotel voucher I can use with the Choice Hotels.

Re-Introducing myself

I've been away for awhile and there's so many new faces that I thought it was called for.

I'm Ravven, I'm 29 years old (for the 17th year in a row!) Mother of 4, all grown and moved out. Grandmother of 2 and certified nutcase.
