After more than three years of this blog, I thought it was time for a new look. So, whaddya think? I'm not sure it'll stay this way, there are some things I might change. And not sure I'm all that in love with the orange background; it just seemed to "fit" me better than the others.
Anywho, I have been knitting, mostly caps and hats for my brother, but I can't show them to you until after he sees them. But I have been spinning; look:
That's the rest of that mystery fiber from the stash. This has convinced me that I really do have to put a label on anything going into the stash that doesn't already have one. I'm always quite sure that I'll remember what fiber it is and who the seller was and where I bought it and how much I paid for it. But the truth is, I can't; when I pulled this out of the stash, I had absolutely no memory of it. None. As Bette Davis once said, "Old age ain't no place for sissies."
I think I'll Navajo ply this; I really liked how the sample batch turned out a couple weeks ago. My shoulder is doing much better, but I found some YouTube videos that help take the strain off that side.
Knitters gathered in sun and in shade.

And, of course, the destash/swap table. This picture is actually after the swarm of locusts attacked it; lol! Debby was there, with some of the girls in her family. She has some good pictures on her blog, so be sure to go look at them, especially the one of the newest little knitter/crocheter! Debby brought her new Evenstar shawl; I didn't get any pictures because I was too busy admiring it. It's even prettier in real life than the pictures on her blog, if that's possible!
