Under the wire

The thing with competitive crafting is getting projects done in time for posting. I'm a member of the Starfleet Fiber Art Corps and I needed to get the project done by Thursday. I was able to finish it last night and posted today. I still have one more project to submit. Each project adds up and we get promotions, so to speak, based on points earned from projects. We can also earn our "ship" or team flagship status with our combined team effort. Nerdy? It sure is. Fun? You bet. Have to go because I have to ply a bobbin of Merino bamboo blend in hopes of posting another project.
Oh, and the scarf is a present for my little sister.

Crafting the good life

Knitting with pretty yarns I purchased on a recent trip to Europe
Nothing quite beats turning off the world and knitting something colorful. I have also been spinning, weaving, cooking, walking in the woods, all the things that make life peaceful and worthwhile.
