Tour De Fleece

I've been busy doing the Tour De Fleece... Spin every day during the Tour De France.

Here are some photos

T shirt yarns

I recently ventured into the arena of tee shirt yarns. The two I have tried are Tee Cakes by Hikoo Skacell and Be Sweet T shirt yarn. I had to buy them online as they are not often carried in the NM yarn stores

Be Sweet T shirt yarn


My first project was a purse pattern in the spring issue of Vogue Knitting.

This was a really fun knitting project... I can't wait to try another.

Fast and easy wrap.

I got some beautiful yarn for Christmas and knitted a cozy wrap. The pattern is from Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick. It is really easy to knit and fun to wear. Yarn is Madelinetosh Chunky.
