Procrastination is Waning.

We really don't want to talk about how long these skeins have been in the making on the spinning wheel.

I finally finished these Romney cross skeins Monday night and Tuesday.

One was washed in the kitchen sink and one in the bathroom sink, same detergent. They are from the same bobbins. But they do appear to be different shades.

Weather has not been conducive for taking pictures. Lots of icing yesterday and downpours today with more icing then snow in sight.

Bella Coola Sock#1 was also finished yesterday! Sock#2 was cast on immediately!

There has been an intriguing discussion on the TKGA board on Ravelry about getting 'wonky stitches' when knitting a 1x1 rib. Lots of manipulation of yarns, needles, techniques by many are attempting to discover what is causing the misshapen stitches.

Thank you for your lovely birthday wishes! Also thanks for showing off your beautiful yarns. :)

We didn't get any ice in our area of KY, but I'm a little sad about it. We seem to have missed out on a lot of "weather" that everyone else has gotten. I'm wishing for a wee bit of snow or ice!

The special home spun yarn will knit up in a wonderful project.

Wow on the sock,and the bright color way. Should be a cheer to your winter blues. It reminders me of summer skies, green crass and blue rivers running.
