It’s beginning to warm up just a little here in the valley of the sun (a.k.a. Phoenix), which means I will spending more time on our patio. This to me is the perfect way to way to spend a little bit of time working on a few of my projects before or after work. I must say though, for some reason I’m just not in the mood for too much knitting right now and honestly, I haven’t given any of my projects much love because I’m having too much fun with my container gardening and reading. I’m been devouring many new books, reading lots of articles and have signed up for an online class … all herbal related and I’m truly enjoying it all!
My shawl hasn’t been touched in a couple of weeks and I will eventually pick up back up to work on it.
I have worked on my new sock project a little but not enough for you to even notice that I’ve worked on it, hopefully today I will be able to get a bit more done on it so that I can at least get the heel finished.
Yesterday I decided to prep my lovely Shetland wool for this months breed study. It’s so soft and I really love the color that Sherrill (The 1764 Shepherdess) dyed this wool in, it’s such a soft mix of red and pink. I’m looking forward to spinning this over the next week or two.
I have been thinking about making a couple of small embroidery pieces that I plan to leave in the hoop and hang on my craft room wall. I just purchased a cute sheep design from Kathy Schmitz and a different sheep design from Hawthorn Handmade. I also want to start a stitching project too but trying to pace myself.
What are you working on this week ?
