Bad blogger

I'm bad blogger, never could keep a diary either. I had another spinning lesson she gave me a whole fleece from one of her sheep! I can not believe the generosity of this woman. I am trying to finish up some projects that are hanging around.

I took my Rogue sweater, the cable hat from Knitting with beads (w/o the beads), and the shawl I just mentioned to the town fair. Still working on the PW sweater have the pockets in and about nine inches of the body to do.

just rambling

I finaly got the starting row on the body on the Philosophers Wool Stars sweater set-up know I have to decide wheither to knit in the round or back and forth. The LYO said she would teach me to two color purl, and that I would be happier wiht the finish. Not that she has any thing agaist steeks she is just of the opinion, that the yarn should be finer.
Still working on the clover leaf, must take a picture, everytime I use the camera it crashes my system. Wish I could upgrade.

Rouge sweater, not a good picture Posted by Hello

First post

Hi All,

I'm not sure why I started this, but it seems like a good idea and everyone else has one.....I am knitting the cloverleaf socks for the Six Socks knit along. I had to frog 1 1/2 inches. I am doing them toe up and went to far before doing the gust increases.
