Mmmmm.... Ham.

Another for Pay it Forward. Now if I could only get my ass to the post office!

Pattern: Lacey Ascot
Yarn: nuttnbunnyspunme sport here on Ravelry
Notes: Christina Marie's original looks so great with the color shifting Noro. Not sure this subtle yarn shows off the pattern as well.


It is v. v. soft. So happy to knit with my own yarn. I'm heading to Keri's shop for some more of her wonderful battlets. Suggest you follow me there.


More knitting for Pay it Forward.


Pattern: PurlBee Beret
Yarn: Locally produced fine Alpaca
Notes: Made this one exxxxxxtra slouchy


More spinning. This from Spunky Club February 2008.

"Think Spring" colorway
100% South African Fine Wool
has spun into
"Mutant Peeps"
100 yards
Navajo Plyed
Bulky @ 7 wpi


"Animal"

This fiber from Spunky Club January 2008.
100% Icelandic Wool

The fiber (which I neglected to photograph) seemed so "beasty", in a good way, that I wanted to spin it bulky to capitalize on it's "animalness",

Not sure what to do with 63 yards of bulky - 7 wpi. Maybe a blanket for Z's puppy to accessorize with his little raglan?


Charged Hammie's scratcher up with some fresh catnip. He's feeling fine.

Got another 4 inches of snow on Monday night. With Easter this weekend I think the kids are bound for an indoor egg hunt.

At least we'll have the ham to console us.

Oh no! Forgot to order ham. Yipes. Hope decent butcher has one left.

Oh, Hammie looks just like my (former) cat Zack! And, I'm very very jealous of the snow. We just have mud.

"Mutant peeps"...that's definitely what that fiber makes me think of. I'm looking forward to spinning the Snow Squall. Yours looks great!

Love the Lacy Ascot pattern too.

Look at all the goodies you've made!! You are truly talented...and my kitty girl has a scratcher like that too...she just loves it so much. She likes it if I chase her around the room so she can get on it and scratch all violently! (what a goof ball) At least it keeps her off the furniture. No ham for us, but I hope it keeps you warm and cozy and you have a wonderful Easter!!
