New Things

This is new:

The rain has slowed "us" down a bit.  The screened in porch should have been framed and roofed by today, but there isnt a whole lot you can do in the rain.  They tell me I will be able to fit 150 people on this porch, I doubt we will ever come near testing that fact!

This is new:

Well actually it really isn't new, it is just the beginning of a new project.  I have a trip coming up tomorrow.  I am going to California to see my family, and I had my travel knitting project all planned out.   (Colorwork yoke sweater)  However,  I had a bunch of unplanned knitting time at Childrens Hospital recently, my youngest grandson is in for Rsv.  It is a nasty cold like virus that is difficult to shake.  I hate that I am leaving, but there is plenty helpers around here to lend them a hand, I am just used to it being me doing the helping!

I thought I might finish my planned project before my trip was over, so I put together another just in case project.  It is a free Ravelry download scarf pattern called " Clapoti ".  The yarn I am using is some of my handspun from 2013, the fiber is polwarth.  I have gotten thru the tricky bits where I have to add markers, and from now on it will be smooth sailing.

By the time I get back in town, the porch should be done, the grandson should be home, and both knitting projects should be finished, if they aren't, I suppose I could sit on the porch with some iced tea and finish them!

Until next time, Happy Spinning, Knitting and Weaving, Tina
