Monday Knitting

Monday already?  Where does the weekend fly away to?  At least I was able to spend some time knitting... although it did involve a little frogging as well.

I started this Multnomah on size 4 needles, but opted to frog it and restart with size 5's.  Yarn is Gypsyknits Merino Fingering in Merry Men of Sherwood Forest colorway.  Picture above was taken pre-frogging...

I finally cast on my Montego Bay Scarf and am loving it...

I'm using Skacel Meditation yarn in the 023 colorway, which just so happens to be my Lapdog Creations logo colors.  This wasn't planned... I actually bought the yarn well over a year ago.  I'm absolutely loving how its working up and the lavendar scent is lovely. 

As for socks... yea, I still have a few pairs OTN.  The Duckies being the most recently cast on (although not worked on in quite awhile)...

So, you see... I really do knit!  Many of you have been diving into spinning lately and while I adore the look of handspun and knitting with it, I don't think I'll ever venture to the dark side.  There are just not enough hours in the day (not to mention there is just too much dog hair in my house)!

Side note... I've just added Amazon widgets to my site.  This will make it easier for you to purchase books that you read about in my reviews going forward, as well as allow you to see Amazon recommended books and such.  Enjoy!

Oh, yeah. Like I need more stuff to buy and more things to learn to do! Do I not send enough money to Amazon already?

The Montego Bay scarf is really pretty.

What would handspun be without a little dog or cat hair in it? LOL

I love your scarf!!
