What is on my needles

I’ve had an energy spurt with the onset of spring and nicer weather. Thank goodness the sun has shown up, just in time.

Here is what I have going on over here….

I pledged to finish my simple diamond lace shawl, and I am working on it! [rav link]


I frogged my Kumara bed socks  [rav link] and decided I would use some of my hand dyed. I picked my Spicy Mama color way 


I was anxious to see how it would knit up…just getting started, but I’m very pleased with the colors.

I had some round bamboo handles in my stash that I have never used, I found a pattern by Patons, a nice cabled bag pattern, and decided I need a sunshine color for it. [rav link]

I kettle dyed up several skeins of this


I think it will make a pretty summer bag.

I have been spinning with a girlfriend of mine, who is moving back to Michigan soon. She is the only spinner I know down here! Even though she is a new wheel spinner, she has already started wrapping and coil spinning!

I am finishing up my persimmon roving, it was dull after plying and flat looking. Her suggestion was to add a little color. I love it. I used a spool of Sulky thread.

Only 4 more oz to spin and I’ll be ready to cast on. I’m planning on using this in a Soul Hat [rav link], see Mr.. Puffy’s blog


  1. Yeah, I liked that cabled bag when I saw it.

  2. I love the persimmon yarn. You make spinning and dying sound so easy!

  3. The lacey pattern looks lovely.
    love the rich golden yellow and orange colors of the yarn.

  4. PS: I have a friend here (SW Ohio) who is learning spinning now.
