Clicking Those Needles!

It has really been slow knitting lately...................just not in the mood to break out the needles and yarn. Some days the mood hits me to stitch a few rows. Here is what is I'm working on (slowly)
This man's scarf is from Brooklyn Tweed's blog.  It is called Noro Striped Scarf, but since I didn't have Noro and wanted to use handspun, this pattern was perfectly easy to pick up and put down.

Two rows of handspun wool and two rows of baby alpaca--of course, it is taking longer to knit due to the fact that the yarn is lace weight--Really?  Lace weight?  Well, it was in the real aged stash!

Ananka by Shannon Squires is being worked in hand dyed handspun wool--once again--lace weight, so taking just a little bit of time to knit; .


easy pattern to follow; another pick me up and put me down knit.  You can find this pattern at Ravelry also.
 

We continue on with this knit--yearlong , a group on Ravelry.

I'm liking this--a small lace section each month.

Using this handspun with beads (I know, hard to see the beads, but trust me--there are beads)

This pattern comes through another group on Ravelry--Ryan Eejits and those that fit in--Christmas in 12 months.  It took me a few days to get my act together for this month--

It required LARGE needles and bulky weight yarn (which I do not have) but I found this aged yarn.  although it isn't quite what the pattern wants, I thought maybe, it will work, but now that I've begun--I think I'll take two strands of wool and make a bulky yarn--
Okay, the needles are clicking some--slowly, but surely
