Basalt Tank

I am finally getting around to posting this awesome tank top I finished knitting!

This pattern was so much fun to knit! It is called the Basalt Tank and can be found in the book Knitting Nature.

It was an interesting pattern knit one hexagon at a time and then sewn together.  And this was my first time knitting with linen and I would definitely do it again, it made for such a light fresh finish that will be very wearable in the summer!

A Friday Soule Mama inspired ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

It has been a little too long since I last posted! A variety of things (super busy husband, computer being fixed and unfortunately wiped free of data, and a couple of colds) have kept me from writing but I intend to end the dry spell even if from my phone like today! Many projects in the works and a few finished to be shared when I manage to get photos. For now I will leave you with some recent fibers I have dyed for my hand spun yarns…

Around Juniper’s 1st birthday I made her an embroidery project with the letters of her name to hang on her wall. 

Now as Eden’s 1st birthday is approaching I am attempting to do something for her as well. 

I am still not sure exactly how it will come together yet, but I was inspired by these cross stitch fairies I found in a book…

I am starting to plan out (mostly in my head at this point) a gnome party for her.

It is likely to be out last kids birthday bash in Maine (near some family) for at least 5 years so I want to do it right.

More to come once I actually find the time to start it!

I scored BIG TIME with a SAPGAP (Spin a Pound get a Pound) 

11 POUNDS of alpaca! 

I am preparing it to card (borrowing the incredible Port Fiber’s drum carder). Some of it I am just picking apart and fluffing up to keep the natural colors, and about half of it I am dyeing a variety of colors which I intend to blend when I card.

Lots of beautiful, colorful, fiber drying!

This is proving to be a lot of work, but it is good work.

Hands on, fulfilling work.

This will surely take lots of time to spin… so its a good thing I love doing that too!
