Oh, hi...

I have a spinning wheel!
A spinning wheel that I stained PINK! I heart it so much... It's a double treadle Roadbug made by an awesome little company from Vermont, The Merlin Tree.

My first yarn is pink, too...

FLUFFfiber Merino, 4 oz in This Bouquet... I got about 300 yards of 10-11 wpi (about dk/worsted weight) yarn! That's soooo awesome!!! It's not very even, some over plyed areas, some under... but I really love it. It has character, right?

This is a very nice, relaxing addiction :) I think I'm going to knit a pair of Toasties with it, and then maybe a One Day Beret, if I can squeak out that much yardage, lol...

Oh, Thor wanted to say, "Hi!" :)

New Scarf Pattern Available!

I present... the Castle Walls Scarf!

This beautiful scarf can be made either thick and toasty or light and lacy. Either one results in a stunning accessory. The name came to me while blocking… the circular holes staggered on top of one another reminded me of a stone castle wall.

The fingering weight version of this scarf only takes 1 skein of Knit Picks Palette yarn! Can you think of anything better than a gorgeous wool scarf for only $1.99?!?!?

An easy pattern, this scarf only uses sc, dc and chains! A great option for the beginning crocheter, but the mix of stitches won’t bore the more experienced fiber artist!

Buy it on Ravelry by clicking or in my etsy shop by clicking the link in my sidebar to the right... I really love this scarf, I hope you do, too!

And, thanks for all the suggestions about the blanky... I'm finishing the first one up for the in-laws and will make another for the hubby. Good news is that I have a few more weeks to finish the one for the in-laws... Phew!
