Free to be

Sometimes when I spin yarn, I want it to be really perfect and even. Other times I’m able to let the yarn decide. Today I didn’t predraft too much, but let the yarn fulfill its fibrous destiny:

I’ll almost done with this half of the totally fiber. We’ll see what it becomes! 

WIPs and a bear sighting!

Hi friends, I’ve been quiet in this space lately (sometimes wordpress acts up on my phone, which is where I prefer to blog), but there has been some knitting, some vacationing, some coursework, and lots of baby steps toward starting work in a few weeks.

I’m currently knitting three shawls at the same time, which is unheard of for me, but there is a good reason for each of them; 1) because I really want a neutral gray shawl, reyna2) because of Colorpalooza, doodlerand 3) because it’s a Don’t Panic Mystery Shawl Knitalong and I find it hard to resist Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-themed knits!!!

It’s a mystery KAL, so I won’t spoil it, but it looks very pretty!

It’s been a while since I’ve had a bear sighting, but today I was alerted to this guy!  Thorin Bear has been spotted in Africa with his new owner!


Happy knitting!
