|Boring Grey Sock|
Seems like just plain grey socks? Well sometimes that's just what is needed. It's almost auto knitting _ I can knit on something like this at work on breaks or before I actually start work; just pick up and knit. It's surprising to see how a few rows knitted here & there add up to a whole sock rather quickly.

I'm using Wendy 5 ply Guernsey yarn I purchased from http://www.loveknitting.com/us/ .
I have a few books and have done some research, so look forward to completing the sweater before it gets too warm to knit a large project.
Socks are great warm weather projects.
|Bath Towel project|
Bath towels are on my to do list.
This is ready for some sampling with cotton chenille from http://www.mbrassard.com/index-ang.html .
Previously I had tried to use mop cotton, but it makes a better bath mat than a towel.
See what happens with this.
|Cotton/hemp tea towel warp. MX dyes.|
Pictured to the right is hand dyed cotton/hemp warp for tea towels.
Pattern is for a twill gamp which I find fascinating to see happen.
Each section is a different threading and combined with different treadling combinations beautiful twill patterns emerge.

This again is hand dyed cotton/hemp warp for more tea towels.
Love the pattern!
|Lilacs of 2015|
It's a beautiful year for the lilacs. Our house has many in front and across the road lining the farmer's field.
