Wednesday WIPs

For the past few months, I have been very lazy about my blogging.  I would like to give you are good reason for this, but really...I just haven't felt like it.  The blogging mojo has been AWOL and as a result, so have I.  Since I haven't found a way to remedy that, I decided that just forcing myself to type something in this space might redevelop the habit for me.  I don't know if it will work, but here we go.

I promise you that I have been working on projects.  Lots of projects have been completed but not many have been photographed.  I think that the photography issue may be part of my blogging block.  I am very frustrated with the quality or lack of quality in my photography, so I don't want to take pictures of what I have done.  If I don't have pictures to show you, then I don't want to blog about what I can't show you.  It is time to get past all that.

Works In Progress (WIPs):

  1. Moose Afghan (from hell) - about 75% complete, but it is too hot to work on a king size afghan.
  2. Long Cat Scarf - about 50% complete. It is double-knit and the technique is new for me :)
  3. Skull Towel - about 25% complete.  This started out as a dishcloth, but it is going to be to big for that.
  4. Sock Monkey Hat - I just cast on this one.  My sister requested it for her granddaughter.
  5. Ladies Top - about 30% complete.  I haven't worked on it in a month
  6. Semele - about 20% complete.  I haven't worked on it in a month or more.
I think that is all of them.  Check back on Friday when I will post picks of some recent FOs.  Until then, Happy Creativity to you all !

Tuesday's Temptation

.4 oz of mulberry silk for $1.48 USD
I have found an interesting little Etsy shop to share with you today.  Happy Cetta is interesting to me because you can buy little bits of fiber to play with at nice low prices.  This way you can try out a new fiber without investing much or experiment with that new DIY hackle that you made and make your own custom blend of fiber and color.

Check out what she has to offer and Happy Creativity to you all!

Tuesday's Temptation

Oops...I missed a Tuesday!  I guess I have been a little distracted lately.  I hope you will forgive me.

Today, I want to share with you Susan's Spinning Bunny on Etsy.  There you can find handspun yarns, drop spindles and lots of hand-dyed spinning fibers.

Don't you want to give this a spin with some lovely, fluffy bunny bits???

Happy Creativity to you all!

Tuesday's Temptation

Would you like to see some pretty OOAK batts?  ME TOO!  Head on over to Uniquely Yours Design and check out the colorful and sparkly fiber batts that Jenna creates.  This lady is not afraid of color.  What a fabulous way to expand your color horizon and work with a wonderful mix of fibers.

I Dislike Blocking...

But I really like what it does for a shawl!  Watching the details open up and bloom before my eyes is a wondrous, yet back breaking, event.  Don't skip blocking your work, the effort is worth the end result.

This is the Bobble Shawl by Pia Linden.  I crocheted it in a cotton blend or unknown origins.  Pink is not my color, so I wonder who will get this?

Happy Creativitiy to you All!
