THIS and THAT





it’s wednesday: which means YARN ALONG with ginny. Love that blog, her writing, the family life she and her husband are carving out for their 7 children, not to mention all the great knits and book recommendations. 

i joined a group on line called 15in15, which is a group that asks spinners to spin 15minutes each and every day in 2015. I can manage that;-)

louise- i am on the sleeves now, this knit continues to be a joy to knit. who couldn’t love knitting such a wonderful pattern using quince and co. yarn? I think MadderMade is now my favorite designer, I know my girls like louise.

pulled out the featherweight for some piecing, a red and white quilt that caitlin started maybe 2 years ago. yup, i’m finishing it. i really enjoy doing mindless things like easy knits, spinning, and strip piecing 
fabric. ok i love to “run fabric through a well tuned, humming machine....talk about getting into the zone, pure ZEN!

the photo of the moon i took on my way to work last week, yes that moon lit up the sky!

I too am in love with the maddermade patterns right now(and Quince&co!). Love the colors for your louise. I made a Lottie for my four year olds birthday and have an Immie and a li-li hibernating at the moment. I am trying very hard not to order every pattern on the site at this point:)

What a great idea to have a spinning challenge. I meet with a group of ladies every Friday to spin but lately we've been doing more knitting than spinning.

Now how did you know that i would help you declutter by taking those precious furbabies? ;) Just got caught up with you post-Christmas...you have so many fun projects in the works. Happy new year Eileen.

The tea, the featherweight, the Mac. There's some kind of commentary on how we live lurking there. I'm so impressed with your spinning!
