Happy Easter

Mitchell gave his approval for the Easter basket.



The Easter bunny didn't hide the eggs very well this year. They made a heart shape.

Spinning: Week 16

I spun my first milk fiber this week, a merino/milk fiber blend from "Bee Mice Elf." The colorway is "Vino for Valentine."



It is about 385 yards from 8 ounces of fiber.

I also caked my Spelsau fiber and cast on my Hela cardigan. Here are the cakes:



Happy Knitting!

I finished up the brighter colors of my Spelsau gradient, hot pink to light orange. It is about 280 yards.



It will be the contrast yoke yarn go with the purples.

Tonsils

I've been a bit quiet lately... Mitchell had his tonsils out on the 18th. Here he is, right after the surgery. I snapped a shot with my cell.



And here are a couple shots of him enjoying the spring weather, today. Back to school, tomorrow!





Happy Knitting,
