I keep putting off posting here because I haven’t had a chance to upload pictures of any of my new stash or projects.  But I’m so excited about my current project that I must share.

I’ve been working on BrooklynTweed’s Hemlock Ring Blanket in some of the Cascade Ecological Wool I picked up in Abbotsford.  Love love love the pattern *and* the yarn!  I was kind of worried at how stiff the yarn felt in the skein, but as soon as I started knitting it softened up, and it’s the perfect yarn for this blanket.

Oh my god, I’m knitting a blanket.  I always swore that was *way* too big of a project to knit and that if I wanted a blankey I would crochet it.  But it’s knitting up so fast!  I’m about 5 m away from the end of the first skein and have about 8 rows to go for the smaller size, so I think I’m going to do the extra rows since I’ll be breaking into the second skein anyway.  And then I’ll have to think of something to do with the leftovers.

Tonight is the Explorations in Handspinning class I signed up for as soon as we got back from FibreFest.  It should be a lot of fun and all I really need to make my life complete is to pick up a new hobby, right?  Which reminds me, someone needs to nag me until I actually complete a project on my lovely loom.  Seriously, this one has been sitting on there for months and I hate it but feel guilty just chopping the warp off.  Of course, my solution involves dropping some cash at M1 for a warping board so that it isn’t such a pain to warp…
