Second cast on!

Turns out that the lovely Western Sky Knits yarn was too busy with fabulous colors for this pattern, so I started again with this amazing merino/cashmere blend.  So far, so good!!!

So pretty!

Loving this pattern, Antarktis by Janinia Kallio!  Jitteryknitter and I have our own KAL for this shawl!  Love how this yarn and Signature Needles are working together with the lace!

Cast On Antarktis!

The Antarktis pattern is a beauty by Janina Kallio, a Finnish designer on Ravelry. Love the simplicity and rhythm of her patterns!

Cast On Cowl!

This pattern is the Forest Glade Cowl, a free pattern on Ravelry. I thought the lace and repeats would blend the yarn colors a bit, yet they still are screaming HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!  This yarn is Jessica's Dream, hand dyed by friend Jessica.

Spinning merino/silk ~

Lovely blend from Abundant Fiber and it is spinning well. This is a great picture showing my fiber bowl, given to me by Patti, and how well it matches my sweet Pocket Wheel and our dance floor!

Sock Gusset!

Love how the Jitterbug yarn is sort of striping in these socks. Almost to the heel turn and can't wait for that next phase!  Way to go!!!!

Next projects!

looking at these lovely skeins of yarn for future projects, so I have wound them into cakes so I can readily cast on when I find the proper pattern.  The lower right is Jessica's Dream, dyed by friend Rose-Kim Knits and the upper right is a Western Sky Knits gift from Jitteryknitter, from Stitches West!  Can't wait to cast on!!!!!

Still spinning!

This four ounces of lemon yellow merino is taking me longer to spin as I am distracted by the nice weather and my garden!  I love how this happy color blends with my zebra bobbin, and can't wait to start spinning the four ounces of burgundy merino that I hope to ply with this yellow.  Won't that be a fun combination!?
