I had a post Christmas knitting season goal of finishing up a batch of unfinished items.
So, I've been working on this "Dragonfly" 75% Polworth 25% Silk blend that I purchased from Huckleberry Knits. I've been spinning it out quite thinly in hopes of making a three ply. It's been slow going and occasionally I feel some impatience at my slowness until the part that is just enjoying the process and finding peace in the treadling of my wheel takes back over and just enjoys it.
Yep, it's happened. And I know at this point that many of the readers that got drawn in by the title are shaking their heads in sympathy or are just plain confused... Fiber Chlamydia? Yes, that's right, fiber clap is here. Moths... More specifically, their little crawling larvae.
Bob and I hit the road this last week for a mad dash through Colorado and New Mexico to hit some of national parks and see the Taos New Mexico Wool and Fiber Festival. Enough of that though, here I will just discuss the knitting I did on the road. Sorry, I can't imagine you all want to see my slide show of Carlsbad Caverns and what not...

This arrived in the mail today and was waiting for me when I got up to start my day with dog walks and grocery store runs.
Wow, it's been a while. Don't know why I haven't been around to this site lately but whatever the reason was, I'm back. I apologize to anyone that such a proclamation just gave a tremor of terror. I'll try to behave?
So, believe it or not, in all the other hectic craziness that has been my life the last bit (I think an insane part of my brain likes it like that), I have in fact been knitting.
I got these done for myself, which I am loving.
We've been as busy as this little bee...
