Finally Knitting Today!

Almost time for bed, and I am finally getting time on my day off for some knitting. Where does the time go???  Pulled out this lovely Jitterbug yarn and "Orbit" shawl by Janina Kallio, as I cast on for my birthday and have not knit on it since then - abandoned for holiday knitting!  So, today I chose this for my fifteen minutes of knitting.  Love this yarn, love the pattern and love the pattern designer!

Spinning Again!

I have not found the time to spin since our great Fort Worden weekend, so I had fun pulling out my Pocket Wheel to see where I had left off with this Abundant Earth Fiber.  Still a bit bumpy to spin, yet I think if I ply this loosely it will be lofty and squishy for a soft knit!

A lot of Blanket Knitting!

Still knitting along on this blanket, and I will continue knitting until the June deadline!  Love the bright colors, plus it is warm to knit with this blanket on my lap now that cold and wet fall has arrived!

Blanket knitting!

Working on the Celebration Blanket for my youngest as she's graduating high school next June and asked for a knit blanket as her graduation gift...So I need to make more blanket knitting time so I can finish it by June!   Since she was running in her last Cross Country Race this weekend, I dedicated my knitting time to her blanket!  Love these colors!
