Part 2 Issues Plus Fun Pictures of Babies & Knitting

While writing this blog, I have found that I am really not very good at "Part 2".  I have written several entries that I decided to break into separate posts.  As you may have noticed, I rarely get back to finish them up.  This also seems to be the way my mind works nowadays.   It moves from one thing to the next at warp speed and tiny bits are flung off and lost.

I have decided to go back and revisit the posts that are languishing in my draft file. So hopefully within the next few weeks I will catch up with my life & can fill you in on everything.

In the mean time, here are a few random shots of some cuteness & knitting fun!

Miss Lily with another favorite hat.

It is the Fair Isle Gaiter/Hat Combo by Ann Druce-Hoffman.

Super quick & fun to knit.

Liam being his adorable self.

My Helix Scarf byStephenie Gaustad.  This is a very relaxing knit.  I pull it out when I need to knit in times of stress.  It's also a great project for knit groups & knitting in public places as you can never really lose your place.  I am using Ella Rae Lace Merino in color 103 purchased at The Fiber Closet in Rockville, IN.

This is a new yarn I recently purchased.  Florafil Super Soft Cotton Yarn by Textured Yarn Co.,Inc  in their American Wildflowers Collection.  This color is called Blue Flag Iris.  I am not sure what I am going to make with it yet but it is a truly scrumptious bulky cotton yarn.  

It is recommended that you treat this as you would a hand painted yarn and alternate between two skeins every few rows to assure an overall blended effect. 

There is your knitting tip for the day!!

This is a mystery warp on the Cricket Loom by Schacht.  I am just playing around with it and making it up as I go along.  I would love to tell you what the yarn is but I can not find the ball band at the moment.  And.........I can't find the second skein that I need to continue weaving.

Which sort of sums up my life lately!!
