frustrated with my knitting…

I don’t know what it is, but I haven’t been happy with anything I’ve been trying to knit lately.

So I’m doin’ other stuff …

Remember this fiber?

This is from the Hello Yarn Fibre Club – Toxic – I think it was the November selection.

Well, it had a bit of an identity crisis so it ended up being this:

Toxic, dyed by Hello Yarn

My first singles yarn! :D

and this:

which was plied with my new spindle:

Isn’t it purty? This was my 2nd choice when I was looking at spindles last year. It’s a Kundert – Cedar whorl, walnut shaft. It weighs 1.2 ounces. I like it and it spins nice, but my kokopelli spindle is still my favorite. Now… which spindle shall I get next. ;)

Stay tuned to see what other stuff I’ve been doin’ :D

what’s new?

I’ve been working with some hand painted fiber from cabin cove … wait … what’s that lurking in the background?



It’s my new spindle! Isn’t it loverly? I love kokopelli and have been drooling over wanting to buy it since the summer, but it wasn’t available until the fall. It’s hand made by Tracy from Woolly Designs. It’s a half-overlay – weight – 0.9 ounces and it has a notch unlike my other spindle.




Ain’t it purty? :D
