Not just a hobby, it's a way of Life

And now it’s snowing here!

After the snow left the blog, it took its own sweet time and arrived here.  Probably 5-6″, maybe more.  What’s one of the only good things about snow?  Snow cream.

Snow cream

It has been all soap, all the time around here. There’s currently a fundraiser going at the local high school, there may be another one coming down the pipe shortly, Ramblin’s work wants to hold one for the employee committee, and I’m doing a craft show at the end of March. Why aren’t I making soap right now?!

And there’s been a bit of knitting. I started a shawl, almost finished it, and started having second thoughts about the color arrangement. So that got put aside, and I started in on the Loopy Academy second semester project.

Full Spectrum beginning

Much better.

And there’s even been spinning!

Merlot Holocene

I didn’t get great pictures of this, but it hasn’t had its bath yet anyway, so maybe the sun will shine by the time I get around to doing that.  It is two plies of Knittyandcolor‘s Not Drinking Merlot and one ply Holocene, all on merino-silk.  That little skein on the left was the leftovers of the Not Drinking Merlot chain-plied.

I guess that’s all the news that’s fit to print.  I’ll try to come back before spring.  Whenever that will be.
