Silly me...while scrolling thru my blog I realized I had never posted photos from my Milkweed Shawl! I am so very pleased with it...there was a lot of new techniques in this shawl for me...lace, yes, I did it!, blocking with wires and pins!, knitting with sock yarn on larger needles (a'la lace style)...and I did it all! Quite impressed with myself :-)

Okay, now I see why I never posted a pic...I don't have a shot of it off the blocking wires...I'll take care of that in the next few days...lovely it is!

And, I have a couple other spindle yarn photos to share:

This one just started on my new spindle addition, a Trindle...

This delightful spin...

Wow! Hard to believe that it's been about 6 weeks since last post! Must get up to speed...the h-o-l-i-d-a-y-s will be here before we know it...yikes!

Current works:

*Spinning, spinning, 2 spindles in progress and wheel spins...I am so pleased with my handspun collection...growing by leaps and bounds!

*Zig and Zag Blanket...ah, this is such a treat to work on! Each and every color change is so invigorating! Very difficult to put it down...keep wanting to knit one more row and get to another color...

*Learning to make pom-poms! Followed this post here...

*Halloween costume in the of supplies soon, then you guess what it will be!

*Recycling a wool sweater...then over-dyeing it...can't wait to see what happens...destined to become a hat.

*Snippets...more in the colors, new trimmings...soon to go to Etsy.
