Original design hat with flap and clay button and cowl  sure to keep you warm and toasty.  Yes like a good girl I have been working on my UFO's and I did have a break when I borrowed my friend, Alice's book on knitting and beads and had to try out some new patterns.  Back to working on UFO's.

Feeling A Little Loopy

Loopy cuff scarf made out of beautiful rayon yarn
This current January thaw has thrown me for a Loop.  Overcome by a case of  spring fever!!!  So what do I do?  Decide to repaint my studio- which means opening cabinets and cleaning them out so they can be painted.  Simple right?  Wrong,  I open the cabinets and what do I find UFO's.  Yikes! not just one or two, but 6.  So can you guess what I'll be doing in the next few weeks?  Oh my knitting and quilts in my future.

Not cold Enough for A Hat But....

Tweed knit alpaca head warmer with felted wool pin.  Wonderful way to keep the ears warm on those strange New England  weather days!   Not super cold but, not warm either!

Alchemist Down

knit wool cozy and woven wool throw

  What happens when the Alchemist comes down with the wheezles and sneezles? ( A big thank you to Pooh Bear who helped diagnose my malady.)  -Why she knits herself a tea cozy, wraps herself in her hand woven throw ( she wove it when she was much younger) and hunkers down with a classic who-dun-it!
