When I have long term commitment problems with my spinning/ sweater projects I turn to my paramour…sock knitting. I’m not proud of this behavior, but a girl has needs!

I am impatiently awaiting the March 30th return of Doctor Who on BBCA.  In anticipation, I have been knitting everything Doctor that I can find.  My latest project is an homage to The Girl Who Waited, The Girl Whose Life Doesn’t Make Sense-Amy Pond. These mitts feature a Tilting Tardis pattern in the color of Amy’s Vampires of Venice scarf. Now, I just need to be ready to take notes on Clara’s wardrobe…

Mitt-a-palooza! 

A minor bout with the flu afforded me some time off of work.  What does one do when stuck on a sofa for 48 hours?  Knit all the yarn within reach!

My computer addict enthusiast son’s latest passion is Minecraft. This hat not only serves to keep his head warm, but also lets all of the other middle school minecrafters know that he understands EXACTLY how it feels when your diamonds fall into lava.

The monotonous brown of fall has given way to the relentless white of winter in the upper midwest.  I NEED COLOR!  The solution:  spinning in color followed by knitting of said color.  I present my aptly-named SkittlePuke Mittens!  Ta-da! View Larger

 I don’t understand the people I live with…they don’t seem to get the same joy I do out of looking at a well-spun skein of yarn.  I get strange looks and comments like, “Are ya gonna actually DO something with that someday?” So this year will be the year of utilizing the stash.  Two handspun shawlettes finished and it is only January 6!
