Love Neon!

I love this neon yarn that was free at Ft. Worden retreat!  These helix hats are so cute and will be great for my "16 hats in 2016" challenge to provide teen hats in December, 2016.

Monday Spinning!

Back to spinning today, and this bump seems to be taking a long time to spin since I am so focused on the graduation blanket slog. This is still great fiber to spin, and I especially love the hot pink shooting through the fiber!

Second Teen Hat!

Cast on my second teen hat of the year, this time using the neon yarn from Ft. Worden. I think the teens will like these hats almost as much as Seahawks hats!

Two Thirds Done?

According to daughter that is graduating in 2016, and has requested this knitted blanket, "You're not done yet" when we held it up to her.Well, yes, I knew I was not done knitting yet, just trying to get an idea of how much more blanket slogging is in my future.... She said, "Just knit until you are out of yarn." Well, that could be a long time and a loooooong blanket!!!!

Cast On Sallah Cowl!

I love this great yarn that Jitteryknitter gave me for Christmas, dyed by our podcast friend, Danie, of One Twisted Tree! I searched Ravelry for a pattern that works well with variegated yarn, so I hope this knits up lovely and colorful!
