Easter and dog sheddings!!

Two things I am looking forward to this spring for one reason only. Yep. Dyeing chiengora yarn I spin! Those egg coloring pellets are awesome and when clearances to like .18 cents after Easter they rock as a dye method! I am still working on yarn I got to use food color/ egg dye on. Tell me these don't rock

Anita's funky emporium

Found an awesome store to sell my items! Anita is on woodville highway in this amazing a frame house she uses for her shop. I want to buy everything in there and I even want the a-frame!

More blocking and another poncho

In a knitting frenzy which means a blocking frenzy as well. The shawls are pretty much good to go but my scrap poncho has another few hours of work ahead of it.

Shawls are nice

They are nice to make and to give away and to look at. I just hate having to block them!


How did I ever let myself forget how awesome these were!! Knit one for myself and one for a friend's daughter. I am thinking I should have at least three for myself...

Knitting patriotic

Just a close up of the cowl I made for Election Day. Whatever the outcome the right to vote is a privilege. The right to good superwash fiber and spinning wheels are also dear to me!

You have long haired dogs who shed you say?

Well, let me help you with that! This hat is a mix of alpaca, a little silk and... That's right! Dog brushings! Their owner was pleased, especially as the days are getting cooler.
