I made my friend Jessica a sackboy for her son. I think I am addicted to knitting them. He was so much fun to make. I wonder what his name will be?

My Annis Shawl

I'm well on my way to getting my Annis shawl finished. I checked on ravelry and I am amazed some knitters are completing this shawl in a couple of days. I didn't enjoy the nupps at all. I am now starting on my short rows and then will have another skein out of my stash! I will be working hard at getting some of my stash yarn knitted up, as it has grown over the summer. Yikes! I do enjoy looking at the cakes sitting on my shelf. It's kind of Artsy looking!

My First Spinning Wheel!

I got an Ashford Spinning wheel today at a festival in Ocala!  Barbra is my spinning wheels name! I named her after the wonderful lady that sold her to me. She took the time to talk with me about spinning and may I say her spinning was top notch! Both skeins were very even. I still need to get more bobbins and a lazy Kate. Maybe I can get my wonferful husband to build me one. I am very excited to start another craft! Thank you Barry! You are a wonderful man to support my fiber craziness! I love you!

Eye Cord

I knew one day I would need glasses. I also know glasses always fall off of my face, so I made some eye cord in my Storied Yarns "Last Olympian" colorway. I love it. I must make more. Also, my favorite yarn shop Storied Yarns  has another shop on the Art Fire site. Check it out! She has some really nice spinning fiber as well.

My Summer Girl Scarf

My Summer Girl Scarf is finished and blocked. I will be wearing it today even though it will be 83 degrees. I finished this scarf on my trip to see the fall leaves. It was fun knitting the colors I would see in the leaves. Well here it is.

This was a project that you had to pay attention to every row. It kept my interest that way. It was not a tedious knit. Now I must either decide if I want to make fingerless mittens to go with it or a hat. Hmmmm.. We shall see.
