Hi Ann B. ... Haven't tried it yet, but oh my yes, it does look glorious! At the moment I'm working on a Tiger Eye scarf using Plymouth Yarn Boku (wool & silk) ... wonderful to work with and, after about 2 feet of knitting (and ripping out ) have [B]finally[B] gotten the hang of the pattern

Maggie (sitting by the woodstove just a-knitting)

Oh how totally cool! How'd you get to be a test knitter?!? That'd be really fun ... I think!? Re: WIPs ... let's see ... in the knitting basket today is Tiger Eye scarf (scarves?), socks, and facecloths.
How big is your stash? :-)

I just finished up a beautiful scarf using a new-to-me stitch that makes a glorious circle pattern.

Am now on row five of a Narciso lace scarf using Chroma's lollipop

Gawd, I love these winter days

Have you seen the Yarn Harlot's mawata made mittens?

What're you all up to?

Ooooo ... look at how the Chroma "Lollipop" is working up in the Narciso scarf. Really nice to work with and is working up a pretty little halo

Late to the party, but I, too, am a knitter, spinner and weaver. In fact, I ended up opening a shop to satisfy my addiction...er...I mean, supply like-minded folk with fibers and yarns and supplies. Stop by when you're up my way in Minne-nosnow-ta. BTW, I have MANY UFO's (unfinished objects) not limited to fiber arts projects...I also have a 3/4 finished teardrop trailer.

Hi Shelly and Lil!

Isn't it fun to have all things woolie to play with during the winter?!? A friend and I spent a lovely hour cruising a small LYS just a couple of days ago. It was as refreshing as a trip through the local garden shop's greenhouse!

Ah, but Lil, you've got the perfect set-up :-) If you've got a website for your shop, would you please post it?

I just finished up a sweater for The Dad, a vest for The Nephew, and am finishing The Second Sock ... THEN I can return to a really cool sweater for me (I'm using patterns from Barbara Walker's "Mosaic knitting" :-)).

Teach me to spin, okay?
Maggie
