Project Assembly Line

 I got out the dye supplies and transformed this skein of Bare fingering weight yarn so it can be knit into a cowl by Mom.
It is all wound and ready for the needles!
 As long as I was making a mess, I pulled out some Shetland roving and camouflaged it!
When it dried, the roving is just right;  just what I had in mind!
 Mom and I put a new pattern on the needles after raiding the stash;  it is Coronet from Knitty.com
for a hat.  It is so fun to knit the band of cables for the brim.  We got to sit outside in the sun and knit which was the first time since they arrived.  It was wonderful!  (Nyki is guarding a pair of lace socks I am working on also but I got sidetracked by this hat pattern!)
 Today, we did some work in the sewing room!  Some more chapstick keyrings for the coming company!  Mom joined right in the assembly line work and we had a few good laughs!
Then four new pillows were assembled for her new couch-they need pillow forms which she will be picking up tomorrow!   It is so nice to be working together again!


  1. Having someone to craft with must be so much fun!
    Love the dye jobs. Can't wait to see the results.

  2. Sounds like you're having a great time. I miss the craft times DD and I used to share. Your due projects look lovely -- haven't been near my dyes in well over a year, possibly tow!

  3. As always one talented lady busy doing what you love and and it shows. Everything is wonderful. You Mom's cowl is going to be lovely.

  4. Looks like you've been very busy and having a great time! The yarn and roving turned out pretty! I love those little Chapstick keyrings! What a great idea!

  5. spring must be coming closer - I see dyeing on many blogs just now:) and maybe I could send over my wishlist for sewn stuff - you seem to get a lot of work done together:) more than myself anyway!

  6. Chapstick pouches? I never thought of that. Cool idea.

    I love the colors you dyed the Shetland. Can't wait to see how it spins up.

  7. The colors in your yarn and roving are so pretty! I'm glad you're getting to spend time with your mom. Mine turns 90 today! Can't wait to see her on Monday :)


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Give it a Try

 I am trying to make a summer tank on the knitting machine; a maiden voyage!   After a few false start, it moved right along-even wit...
