Moving Along

So the past few weeks have been really crazy.  My boyfriend and I have just moved into an apt and we’ve been really busy trying to get everything packed and moved.  We’re just about all set up now.  We have internet access anyway, and that’s the most important!  So anyway, here’s a sneak peak at my new home.

This is the Kitchen looking into my “Craft Room” or “Office” as I call it when Matt’s around.  😉

MY Kitchen

My lovely knit hats hanging on the back of the Craft Room door.  From left to right: Fair Isle hat in Ultra Alpacca, Rolled Brim hat in Ultra Tweed, Cable Rimmed hat in Blue Moon yarn, Ribbed Lace hat in Dream in Color Classy, and my very own pattern and homespun, Shetland in Sea Mist.

I’ve been practicing on my beading as well with these “One of a Kind” stitch markers. . . 😉

And here is my Noro Stash that I am making my Entrelac Shawl with.  It called for 15 skeins, I have about 2 3/4 skeins in it so far. . .don’t think I’m going to use all 15.

And so that’s what I have been up to lately.  I have also started a wonderful sock pattern from Ravelry out of Happy Feet.  It’s so gorgeous and fun to knit!  I can’t wait to get these ones done!  Not much to report on the spinning front, though I will be going to another fiber sale on the 19th!  More fiber posts to come, I promise!



Spinning in the park

So on Saturday, it was such a gorgeous day out, Matt and I decided to go to the park.  I took my Ashford with me.  And some roving.  It was a great day!  It was a little chilly, but the sun kept us warm enough to bear the chill for an hour or so.  Here’s a few pictures.

And from the spinner’s point of view. . .

I also finished my fair isle hat!  It’s a just a tiny bit too small, but it fits without falling off.  It was made with Ultra Alpaca which is lovely to the touch, however it is very very fine and maybe a little too slippery.

All in all it turned out well.  And I have to brag about the new yarn that I got today.  It’s from Dream in Color.  One skein of Smooshy sock yarn, and one skein of Baby lace weight.  Mmm, can’t wait to dig into this!


That was Baby and this next one is Smooshy.


The colors may be a bit off because the lighting at the table wasn’t all that great.  But they are beautiful still.  That’s all for now.  More to come!


Not much goin’ on. . .

Well, not much has been going on lately.  I’ve been busy with work.  I have another quilt on the gammill though.  It’s from Arrin Turnmire’s Chutes and Ladders collection.


And a close up. . .

I also started the Goomba Hat pattern from a ravelryer. . .raveler. . .however you want to say it.  I only have the ribbing half way done so far though.

I also started another fair isle hat with some Ultra Alpaca yarn.  Mmmm. . . I love the stitch markers too.  It makes it look so much prettier.
