The Day of Your Birth

Tomorrow is my birthday. I feel very unaccomplished in the academic arena. I always pictured myself having a demanding job in a place far removed from where I am now. But as always life takes me in other directions...

Anywho, I've been working on a lot of custom knitting this summer. In fact I have been knitting customs since May and I am getting near my end both in items requiring my attention and my attention itself. I am taking a long break from knitting customs. I may start up again after the first of the year. I am taking this break to knit for myself and my family, something I hardly ever get to indulge in. I do enjoy knitting for other people and I may on occasion take a random one here and there but there will be no customs stocked through my store nor will I be offering them up for trade.

With that being said, here is what I have been working on this summer.....

A TINY Tea Leaves cardigan knit for a local yarn store in Colorado as a store sample:

A Hudson Hat as a custom:

Corseted Mitts for Aunt Barbie:

A Travelling Woman shawl for a trade:

On to the handspun:
