Winding up ....

So, last night I decided to cast on a(nother) winter hat.  But I was cozied up on the couch watching a movie and didn't really feel like setting up the swift and ball winder so I just used my feet to hold the yarn while I wound it by hand.  Hey, it wasn't perfect but it worked!

Casting on later today! It'll be very much like the hat I posted about last week, just in different colors.  I have a black pompom that I'll attach to it.  I might also stitch a plain fleece hat inside of the knit one, to make an extra cozy lining.  I don't know about the weather where you are, but we have had low temps in the teens --- 🥶

Off the needles

This was done with some leftover Malabrigo Rios (colors: Bobby Blue, Pearlten, Natural). And a pompom on top that a knitting buddy gifted to me a while back.  I love it so much!




There have been lots of developments since I last blogged and I really haven't been up to much that's blogworthy.  Or so I thought.  But last spring I bought a house! My craft room hasn't really been unpacked or set up yet. I'm thinking about the best solution for storing my yarns and fibers so that I can see them, rather than keeping them in big plastic bins.  Got ideas? Let me see 'em!

This year I'm going to focus on finishing or frogging the eleventy million projects I have on needles and hooks.  Stay tuned for more info as things progress!
