Tatting, spinning and knitting and a new, really...I am not kidding!

Well! Where indeed have I been. No excuses...just too overwhelmed with life and work. BUT who cares about that when there is knitting, tatting and spinning to be done! NO ONE!! So, after a looooong hiatus I am hoping to resume with fewer interruptions.

Tatting I have a pile of Christmas things to do. I am currently working Terry McGuffins (Teiko Fujito inspired) Three color ornament. Don't forget the fun of blending threads together. Imagine a great Hand-dyed with a blending filament from Sulky. Yum
Still have a few edgings to complete and a gift to self will be the new Christmas shuttle from the Shuttleshop.
On the needles the Strangling Vine Scarf from Nicole Hindes, the Riding on the Metro socks from Socks from the Toe up, and my first cardigan from Spring '09 Diminishing Rib Cardigan. Wish me luck
Spinning some Ramboulet/Corriedale and just finished 8 oz of a yummy from Crown Mountain in Merino/Tencel (chantefleur) Pics to come.
Enjoy and keep coming back! Thanks for new listeners and the loyal few who listen...I love ya!!

Addendum...heard the cast sounded skippy...I will attempt to reload kept kicking out in the upload so that is probably why...sorrrry!!!..Thanks for telling me I had not listened to the uploaded version
