Back to normal...

My brother from California came home for Thanksgiving....
He works at a winery in Napa....
We drank a lot of expensive wine....
Boy was it good....
I am sad that he had to go home....we always have a great time. But now we have to get back to normal (that is until Christmas)

I believe I mentioned that I have been doing a lot of knitting and spinning and spinning and knitting. Here are some of the finished skeins that I have spun up:

The above is superwash merino from Cosmic Fibers Yarn. I love Carrie's stuff. I am spinning this 4 oz top on my golding spindle. It feels like I am crawling along with this fiber, but I am getting a decent fingering/dk weight yarn. No plans on what it will eventually become. This here is about 156 yards.
This next skein is more of a worsted weight yarn. I think I got around 160 yards of it. It is also from the lovely and talented Carrie. I believe the fiber is Corridale? Not sure, but I love me some purple!
I am having fun with the photography of my yarn. I am getting the hang of it!
This Sunday is the big reveal of my mystery project! I can't wait to show the finished object. I am really pleased with how it came out. I hope the recipiant will like it too!


  1. I can't wait either!!! And your yarn is delicious!

  2. So I have to tell you...I have been thinking about some of that yarn in your etsy shop for a while now and am hoping that with Xmas coming, gifts will come in the form of money. And that yarn will be bought.

    Just thought I'd tell you.

  3. I'm excited to see this mysterious project. Your yarn is lovely. The first skein is very similar in color to the Pagewood Farms yarn I just stashed yesterday on my Ravelry page (which is to say, I love it).

  4. What a w(h)iner! LOL! New project? Spill! Spill!
