I'm working on it!!!

I need a new larger warping board... so it's been a week of shopping for the right wood and finding the right plan at  and starting cutting... not finished yet... but I'm still working on it.

In the mean time some 2 lbs cotton is waiting.

I've started some seedling and making my own starter pots.
Recycling the toilet paper cardboard roll...
and now hoping the weather will collaborate for the planting time.
I need more hours to my days...

Using leftovers...

I don't like to waste hand spun yarns so I was weaving my heart away, it's superwash merino I'm not a big fan of superwash...I don't like to knit it and weaving it made lots of dust bunnies under my loom... when my brother saw it he claimed it right away, so it should be his scarf  birthday gift. 

and this one will turn into a mini bag/blanket for a was some lonely mohair bouclĂ©, it turned out quite nice squishy soft, it's always good to see stashed yarn into finished articles.   
Better uses than sitting sadly in the leftovers basket.  These were my projects this week.
Time to go back to the drawing table for more inspiration.

This week improvising...

I offered to knit something to a friend, a winter hat was the chosen item. I looked around for a pattern but couldn't find a hat with a folded brim large enough to cover the ears by a double layer when it's cold and windy and unfolded when it's not as cold... The plan was to use some of my Pickwickflock stash, the yarn is beautiful by itself so I didn't want an over crowded motif... so I decided to only knit twins narrow cables... there my idea becomes a project,
it went fast... really fast.

not bad for an improvised hat...
I even got the time to wash it
Today it was ready to go to it's owner.
