During winter, fall, and spring.. I slowly make things. Late fall and early winter, I was busy with my nest egg gourds. They make beautiful Christmas ornaments.
I made stripey ones, that I thought turned out quite well..and they even looked good on the tree.
On snowy days I am compelled to hole up under a blanket with yarn and knitting needles.
The pattern can be found on ravelry.com..
Who can survive snowy days in the outdoors without mittens.? I have rediscovered my spinning wheel in recent months. After spinning up some natural gray soft Shetland fiber into a 2 ply yarn, I went looking for a pattern I could use it in. I dug out one of my old favorite books and found this pattern. Although they turned out to be a bit big..I am still quite pleased.
They are soft and warm and pretty. They will do quite well.
I have found another pattern that will transform my pretty homespun yarn into something warm and fuzzy. It is in the same book and has a Norwegian twist to it.
Now I want to make some more mitts...and I want to make another pair of mittens...and I want to make a pair of slippers...
It is also time to start growing slow food again.
I ordered some seeds, but I have a lot left from last year. Soon I will have little green onions and I want to try sprouting some seeds.
