Modest Endeavors

It's always so hard for me to think of what to say when faced with the blank white page.This is a new attempt at blogging for me, if not the first. Mostly, I think, to keep track of what creative endeavors I am up to.

What I'm working on right now;

  • A block for a wedding blanket for a friend. I'm working with the lovely and ever alluring Rio de La Plata yarn. I might stop here to add that I LOVE THIS YARN. It is a wonderful single ply thick and thin yarn in colors that make my heart sing. It is very similar to Mano's del Uruguay, but a wee bit softer maybe?
  • I have also been teaching myself to spin and have recently purchased a bunch of silk worm cocoons from this lovely person, http://www.pluckyfluff.com . I want to make a bag from some roving I purchased that will go with a fairy costume, and add these in for some 'leaf-like' texture.
  • I am halfway done with a shrug when I see a different but similar pattern that I like better in this months new Interweave Knits. Hmmmm, what to do, what to do. I am of course working with the Rio de La Plata in a pink/brown/mauve colorway. Super beautiful.
  • And I have completed knitting, but still have to sew up one fingerless mitt I've made with a green/brown Oddessy. It's cold right now so these would come in handy.
