Wool Season








In my hands, around my neck, over my arms: wool. It consumes my crafting moments, it fills my head by burrowing into the part of the 'Mama brain' core to urge me to plan more knits, more woollens, more warmth.

When I sleep I dream in yarn weight and wake to thoughts of new projects.

And this year I must. learn. to. spin.

I do declare it's open season on knitting.

  1. Do it - learn to spin! It's so much fun! :)

  2. Yeah, I have a wheel, and I have tried, but I think I need a more consistent approach to it - this year has been off kilter, so hopefully be able to settle down this winter and really give it 100% concentration!

  3. I think spinning might just push me over the edge. There's only so many hours in a day. That said, I have had a go at spinning and did enjoy it.

  4. "Open season on knitting." I love it! (And it's so true.)

  5. I Can't KNIT! There..I said it!! I feel like everyone is in the groove but me! lol:) I love the color of your scarf! Good luck learning to spin:) I'll be sitting at my sewing machine:)

  6. I don't know how I'm to fit spinning in either, but that said, little by little and you never know!

    You CAN knit, anyone can - if you want to that is! But I agree, sewing machines make just as good companions as needles...

  7. I just recently got back into knitting after taking the crochet detour a few years back. Now I want to knit knit knit but i am really lacking in knowledge aside from your basic k2p2 talk. Like there are some AMAZING "mermaid gloves" I really want to make for myself but the directions are just straight chinese, or wingding, or something. And I couldn't have wool anything because it is not machine washable. with my two chitlens under 4, hand-washing is not an option!

  8. this is quite a good site to help::

    and I often substitute yarn for superwash merino or something machine washable - just check weight against yardage to find something similar.

  9. YES!
    well glad to have found your blog
    I am loving all of your images!

  10. Thankyou Rebecca. Glad you found me too :)

  11. Beautiful. I love knitting. Lisa L.

  12. I've been knitting a gator (I moved it to the top of the list, I couldn't wait any longer). We drove to the pond yesterday for a paddle, with the air con and sunglasses on and I'm knitting winter warmers...
