I was thinking about my blog today and just how poorly neglected she is. In the very beginning, back in 2009, I blogged every day. I don't know what I was thinking because I knew that it would be hard to sustain. With the rise of Instagram, blogging seems to be becoming less and less of a thing. Why take the time to blog when you can instantly show things and talk to friends on your phone? Today I am longing for those simpler times and I thought I would set a goal of blogging on Fridays to show some of the things that I've been working on during the week, or things I may have shown on IG.
The first two photos are skeins of yarn dyed be me. I have been interested in trying this for quite some time. I now truly appreciate all the indie dyers I purchase yarn from. It is not as easy as it looks. I do love the process and surprise of how the finished skein looks. I have a couple of blocks of the month I'm working on. These are from Fig Tree Quilts Nantucket Mystery Quilt. It's so fun to get a little bundle of fabric and pattern to make blocks each month. I've been knitting up a storm. I loved making this ombre' shawl. The pattern is the Everyday Shawl by Jenny Faifel. I think it would be fun knit up in yarn left over from other projects.
Recently I purchased these tulips from my local market. It may be cold and grey outside, but inside my $7 tulips remind me that spring is really coming...right? Have a wonderful weekend!
