I have been knitting like a fool!!! Especially during April and May. I do sample/test knitting for yarn companies/designers and they go into overdrive just before TNNA!!! I'm sure not complaining, just ubber busy!!!!! I love working for these folks and they're great!!!
I've also been designing and teaching classes from my designs. The one I've just about got ready to go live with is my Piggy's Pie Sweater
I've also got a shawl pattern in testing. Celtic Fay is going to be the next in line!!
I've got a sweater on the needles right now for my DD to wear to a wedding. I'm using some of the pattern from above and doing a round sweater..... This is the middle and hopefully it will be finished soon!!!!
I'm also working on a top-down sweater for the DD... it's done in Ty-Dy Sock Dots from Knit One Crochet Two and I LOVE that yarn!!!!
It fit me so I put in a band and when I tried it on here..... no way. Go figure.... I'm 5'2" and she's almost 6'...... why wouldn't it fit right??? Can you say DUH!!!!! So back to the drawing board for this one!!
I've also been trying my hand at spindle spinning and as you can see from these.... it's not going great, but it is soooooo going!!!
Our Knitter's Guild Monday night was a hoot!!! I got nailed by my Bestest Friend!!! She is a really wonderful workaholic!!! She made these for my piggy collection!!!!
And DD is spending a month here with us. Her husband, my favorite SIL, had to go back to Germany, but she's staying until Aug 3!!! She's not much of a morning person....
I've got a lot going on and am just loving it all!!! DH is still driving a truck and at least he's here in TX right now!!! That means that he gets to stop by home more often, sometimes just long enough for a meal and a shower and then back on the road.... at least he gets to come home!!!! I love that man more every day..... I've soooooo got a winner!!!!!
I'll try to be a much better blogger now!!! I'll keep the next one short!!!!!

This is the simple shawl that I’m going to be teaching a class on at our new LYS!! I think that it’s going to go well!! This yarn is wonderful….. cashmere and silk!!!! Talk about softer than soft!! I couldn’t believe how easy it was to work with!! One skein of Superior by Filatura Di Crosa….. 70% Cashmere and 30% Silk!!! I’ve never worked with anything so soft and easy to knit with!!1 328 yards of lucious in only 25gms!!!!! It’s more of a shawlette than a real shawl, but it’s soooo much fun and sooooo easy!!!

I know I've been silent for a loooooong time. I'm trying to make my New Year a much better year for blogging!!!
I'm working on a PI type sweater I'm calling Dragon Scales..... I'm to the point of doing the front border now and will be adding the sleeves next week!!!!! I've also got a triangle shawl on the needles in 2 colors of sock yarn, a dark green and a dark blue. I'm using the Peacock Feathers patter because these colors are just too perfect for that!! They look like the colors you would find in a real peacock tail!!
Around the house the DH has a new job and is gone most of the time. He's driving long haul truck now and is all over the map!! If we get lucky he gets to come home once a month for 2 or 3 days!! It's hard on him, but it means loads of knitting time for me...... amazing how much more time you have on your hands if there's no one around but you and the dogs!!!
There's a new yarn store in San Angleo. Chandler's Cottage. I'm working on a triangle shawl class for them. I'm also meeting with a friend to knit on our TKGA Master's class once a week there. I'm also going to go to a "Fiber Arts" group today and see about knitting with them once in a while.
So much for my extremely boring life!!!!
