Four Things

1.  This pretty yarn is Calder from Abstract Fibers.  It’s on sale right now.  You’ll wait a few weeks for them to custom dye it for you, but oh you’ll be happy when it arrives.  It’s 886 yds in sport weight.  Anyone else feel like making a little girl’s sweater?

2.  Simple Things Shawl.

 A quick, simple shawlette in a springy color.  The yarn is Lisa Souza Hardtwist fingering weight in Aqua Fresca.  I started this in April when we still had 3 foot drifts of snow in our yard.  I’m happy to report that we just have little piles of snow left in the shadiest part of the yard.  The kids are finally running around today playing outside without coats.

3.  pasOdoble shawl

Lily helped me pick out this pattern for a 460 yd skein of handspun gradient yarn.  I’m not alternating colors, just letting the gradient yarn do it’s job.  I’m supplementing the handspun with three partial skeins of solid color.  You can see just the beginning of this shawl in the photo above.

4.  WordPress is really getting difficult for me to use.  For some reason the photo inserting has become extremely touchy.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.  Sometimes it insists upon putting two photos together into one frame.  It’s impossible to insert photos from my iPad.  I can upload them, but not insert them.  Is this an issue for anyone else or is it strictly an AreaVoices issue?  Or is it a browser issue?  I might have to play with this a bit.

  1. Love reading your blog and seeing the different projects and suggestions. My wife does many knitting projects also, felted slippers,baby blankets, dishcloths kitchen towels with knit tops and a button for hanging on the fridge or stove handle. I am in charge of the felting process in our washing machine, love seeing the floppy loose knit creations turning into tightly felted warm wool slippers,perfect for cold floors all year round. She also donates some of them to the church for others to purchase as gifts.
    Keep up the great work. Bless you and your wonderful family.

  2. Oooooh, pretty! I can upload pics on my ipad to wordpress, but they come out HUGE and the only way I can change the size is to access wordpress from my laptop. I think it might be an ipad thing?
