Halloween Boutique Chic

Scary yarn left over in the stash sale at Ft. Worden, so Jessica decided we needed to knit with it after our Show & Tell event.... scary scarf with furry balls......Major Eeew!

Long-tail Cast On!

Yes, Jessica taught me (again) how to do the Long Tail Cast On.  I believe she also taught me last year when I cast on my Elsa Wool sweater....thanks to Jessica that she is such a good teacher, so sorry that my memory is not that great.....How exciting to cast on for a new Custom Fit Sweater!

Spinning Merino/Alpaca/Bamboo

Ft. Worden adventure would not be complete without some spinning time with my Pocket Wheel!

Bye Bye WIPs ~

The day has come when one needs to review one's Works In Progress and ask The Clash question, "Should I stay or should I go?"  Say Bye Bye to Bonnie, my ribbon tank top that was cast on a long time ago, perhaps in 2008?
Say Bye Bye to my baby blue lacey top that had hidden armpits that I could never locate in the pattern notes....
Both projects were listed on the blog as "On The Needles" items #1 and #2, yet both predate Ravelry. Now I can cast on more projects!
