Winter Again Spinning

Ok....so being indoors so much has me spinning more to balance the knitting.  Beautiful fibres from River's Edge, Daily Fibers and Gail's Art respectively.  Spun bulky for the pieced afghan in the works.  These fibres were actually purchases with this afghan in mind...ha...finally something intentional.  And on that note....welcome spring.....

Catch Up Time - Ocean Cowl

Ok......so I've been very absent from blogging but only because I've been knitting up a storm...so here they come.  This first cowl is a take on my Infinity Cowl pattern, using a few more stitches, a size 15 needle and the yarn still doubled up.  The yarn is lucious and heavenly to knit.  A definite do over.  http://olivemermaids.blogspot.com/2010/02/infinity-cowl.html...http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/blue-moon-fiber-arts-luscious-single-silk
