hope

 hannah 
hannah winding using my old swift.
my daughter is an avid knitter. this is a lovely mohair and wool hat. 
 this is a sweater with her christmas yarn, a variegated deep teal.
 i wanted some wristies.
 so i bought her some black and off white wool
 i wanted a fun pair so i asked her to vary the solid color placements. the black and white stripes remind me of someone out there, jude. these are just plain fun. 
i like it that she likes to knit and i do not. 
sometimes i spin and she uses my yarn for a knitting project. it's a little bit sad that i no longer have sheep. but i may have them again in the future. 
who knows?

YAY!! i love all these pics. esp that angle of the table. i am so used to thinking about that work table in a different orientation, mostly facing the wall w/the living room entrance, not the windows. i love that she likes to knit and you do not. and that you like to do things that she does not. this brightened my afternoon! thanks for sharing, as always.

I have the same swift, wound off the silk on it today. Wonderful wristies-never heard them called that before. I am not a keen knitter, either, am teaching 2 granddaughters.

The wristies are great and I love the mixed up colour combinations. Its nice for us to share the same principles with family - like making by hand - just different things.

when hannah's home there's always a lot more fiber happening, even though my fiber is more cellulose these days.

V- I believe the saying is you can't have too much fiber - cellulose or otherwise. Glad your H brings even more joy and fiber into your household. B

I love the IDEA of spinning and knitting... but haven't gotten there yet. I also love the IDEA of having sheep. Glad my neighbors do. Enough work just keeping the stove stoked and driving two days a week long away to teach....

I've been craving wrist warmers, just read something about keeping pulse points warm to increase inner fire. Thanks for reminding me, I think its time for a pair!

Like those! Black and white is always classic and fun at the same time.
