Yarn Along

There was some knitting and spinning at my retreat this past weekend. We really can be productive while we are eating talking and drinking.

I spun some more of my Shetland alpaca blend. 

It looked like I had so much in those bags but when you spin it boy does all that shrink down!  I still have another bag to finish. Hopefully by the weekend. 

I have been knitting on my Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl. 

It's so much fun seeing how the colors are looking together. 


I also love seeing my sock yarn leftovers be put to good use. 

Not much reading lately - I have been catching up on podcasts while I knit my shawl. 

So what's on your needles and bobbins these days?  Share with us over at Ginny's

Your Shetland alpaca blend is beautiful, great color.
Have you always been a spinner? I am always curious if it's something new or something that was grown up around.

Beautiful shawl! It looks like such a fun pattern/knit. I have sheep but no spinning wheel, yet. Shoot, I can't even get the hang of the drop spindle lol! Great job with your spinning!

thanks for stopping by!
I would love to be able to spin!
Your knitting if lovely - I am teaching myself to get beyond the knit stitch.

what podcasts are you listening to? I am always looking for something to listen to when the littles are in bed and there is nothing on tv

I am so far behind on my podcast listening. I'm hoping tomorrow I may catch up on two of them.
