New Year

One of my New Year resolutions is to be a more regular blogger, oh and to stop spending so much time on computer games. I haven't stopped knitting or spinning during this time though it has slowed down due to the hot, humid weather. I'm still working on trying to get aircon in the back end of the house.

Here are my current WIPs:

My wonderful friend Jeannine gave me a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Laci in Raven. It is slowly becoming the North Roe Shawl by Dodile. It is beautiful yarn to work with so lovely and soft.

This is the very beginning of Jared Flood's Girasole. As I'm working in Alpaca DK it has been sitting idle until a less humid day. I'm also planning to do the pattern in some fingering weight handspun that I'm currently working on.

And finally Merino Lace Sock by Anne Woodbury . Another wonderful pattern and yarn. The yarn is cashmere/merino in Driftwood by Dyelicious Hand Dyed Yarns. This is my first project with cashmere and I think I'm spoiled for anything else. I've heard lots of stories about the wonders of cashmere and now that I have finally succumbed I know they are all true.

Happy New Year and
Keep smiling :-)
