Up And Running!

Dee:  I’m feeling optimistic about a lot of things.  I feel pretty good actually and 2018 seems to be off to a really great start for me.  I’d like to accomplish a lot of knitting and a lot of other things too.  Although I definitely will be knitting from my stash again this year I have recently bought a few new skeins of American yarn to try out.  I’ve been hearing some really great things about the Barrett Wool Co. yarn from Wisconsin.  I purchased their Home worsted weight yarn in two colors to knit a couple of Emmen hats as well as purchasing their Wisconsin Woolen in worsted to knit Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Pine Star Hat.  Last night I attended a special evening at String Theory.  They were showcasing a couple of smaller yarn companies Spencer Hill and Liverpool Yarns.  I bought two skeins of yarn from Spencer Hill, Claudia and Stanley who will dance together in an undetermined hat pattern to be announced.

I’m participating in a couple of knit-a-longs.  Privately with my friend Kathryn I’ll be knitting Hoarfrost using some stashed yarn Lima.  Then I’ll join the Ravellenics Sweater Event by knitting The Weekender sweater again with some stashed yarn Shepherd’s Own.    Hopefully I’ll make it to the finish line!

Happy knitting, happy life and remember to always choose to be kind.
