How was your weekend?

I had a very productive weekend!
The dyepot was full all weekend...
From lace weight to super bulky yarns.

On Friday, I test knitted these cute little fingerless mitts for Masi Knits.
Olivia was quite interested in my own fingerless mitts and I know she'll love to have a pair of her own!

Last week, Olivia left with one of my cowls! She went into my drawer and picked one and asked if she could wear it to go home. Of course, I agreed knowing right away I had to make her one in her size.
Off I went searching for a child size cowl and found a very nice pattern on Ravelry (I love Ravelry!).
As you can see, I have lots of pink yarn and this was made in pink also.
I can't wait to see how it fits her.

Pattern: Hearwarmer

And I also had a bit of time to card and spin more of Ginger's cria fiber.
This is the second batch of carded fiber.

I plan on making a 2 ply yarn once I'm done spinning the singles
and using it to knit a shawl.
It's amazing what you can get done when the man of the house is not around!
And he's going ice fishing again next weekend.


  1. Sounds like you DID have a productive weekend. The yarn is beautiful and I love the cowl.
    Have fun this coming weekend.
    My daughter is an event planner for the American Cancer Society. She has to work Tuesday & Wednesday night and will be gone all weekend. So.........I will have my granddaughter while she works. Wish I could teach Luiza to knit or crochet.


  2. Ginger's yarn looks beautiful and it will become your most treasured garment, I am sure.
    ahem....perhaps go get your weekend movies and supplies before hubby leaves for fishing...just sayin'....;)
