Weekend Recap: Creativity Abounded!

It was a very busy weekend of being creative, making decisions on projects that needed to go and trying something again.  So what does this all mean?  Well, it means that I had a terrific weekend of working on projects!

I casted on Mirkwood in my newly acquired Jacob.  Oh my, I love this yarn and it’s pure squishy softness and it was the perfect match for this pattern by Kalurah Hudson.  I really love the way the cables look and the yarn is giving it a rustic “vibe” of sorts.  I think this will be a great piece when I’m finished.

I worked on my Quicksilver shawlette and it’s starting to grow nicely for me.  I have a few more repeats of the stitch pattern to go then I will change over to the secondary color and crochet lace pattern.  I’m truly enjoying the feel of the Knit Picks Palette and feel this will become a favorite.
I also started a sweet little cross stitch pattern by Little House Needleworks called Warm Winter Woolens.  For this project I’m using 18 count Aida Fiddler’s , Weeks Dye Works in Charcoal, Parchment, Hazelnut, Oscar and Boysenberry, along with The Gentle Art Simply Shaker in Brick Path.  This is lots of fun and I’m truly enjoying working on cross stitch again.

I also made the decision to say goodbye to my Hempathy Buttercup.  I really tried to love working with the yarn, but it just wasn’t working out for me and neither was the pattern.  I’m a wool girl and always will be.  I’m also trying to decide whether or not I want to continue my Ribbed Cabled Toe Ups (my own pattern of sorts).  I love the look of the cables and I do love socks, but for some reason I just can’t seem to get motivated to finish even the first one.
Sadly not spinning was accomplished this weekend but that’s ok, I have this week to catch up!  I’m still trying to spin at least 15 minutes per day and I’m still working on my Targhee. Some day this will get finished!!!!

Did you have a creative weekend ?  If so, what did you work on ?

Until next time ~ stay creative!
