Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day


“Whatever you want to do, if you want to be great at it, you have to love it and be able to make sacrifices for it."

— Maya Angelou



It’s been a very lovely and relaxing Labor Day weekend.  My husband and I decided just to stay home and relax, and I am so happy that we did.  Life right now is very challenging and even a bit sad.  There is no joy, no happiness, no laughter, just sad masked faces.  I don’t enjoy doing things much anymore and struggle at times being in the public.  This is not “normal” and I am so heartbroken to see the county I love become what it is becoming.

Before I get too carried away with my thoughts, I will share what I have been doing the past few days.  I finished my Porch Light sock on Friday but haven’t casted on the mate yet, but plan to some time this week.




I have also decided to do a little crochet and have started the Up North Cardigan by Jess Coppom of Make and Do Crew.  This pattern is so well written and the tutorials provided by Jess are awesome!  For this project I am using Akari by Noro in the color #13 Hirosaki.



The colors are a mix of purple, gray, ice blue and black.


I have decided to incorporate more crochet this year and have a few cardigans lined  up to make.  I also plan to make a few more crocheted accessories using my growing handspun stash.  For me crochet, like knitting, is very satisfying but the best part, it is so much quicker than knitting!

I am also spinning and still working on my Spooky 19 mixed BFL.  I am so excited about the fiber I purchased from my friend Sherrill for Spooky Spin ‘20.  



Aren’t these colors awesome!  This is Falkland in the colors Winifred Act 6 and Act 7.  Spinning for Spooky spin starts October 1st and I can’t wait!


Until next time, be creative.
