Finised projects ...

The little white shrug is finished along with the leaf cardi. I had to figure out a better way to make the sleeves because the way they are made in the pattern just didn't fit. I ended up picking up stitches around the armhole and knitting them in the round and that worked out really well. I think this has to be my favorite sweater up to date. Soon I will be moving to the Seattle Washington area and I'm sure I will be able to get good use out of this there.


 I dusted off the spinning wheel and finished up this skein of yarn that has been sitting around for a while. It ended up being a light fingering weigh, 460 yards. I love the colors and have to decide what I want to knit with it. 
Going back to moving to Seattle, I have a lot of cleaning out to do and packing and I'm a little stressed over the money I will have to work with and changing jobs and all that goes along with change. I'm also trying to finish up a few projects and get more spinning finished before I leave.

Adrienne, The new finished sweaters along with the newly spun wool are beautiful, but of course they would be, you are so creative.

Moving to Seattle? We have vacationed up there twice and love it. The kids thought at one point we were going to move there. Lol, furthest from today's truth, huh?

Email me more on this (mary@going4the1.com)...what takes you up there? Selling the house? Is Rudy going with? What are you going to do for work?

Praying the move and all your plans for the future work out! Stay in touch via your blog!
Love, Mary
