Blog What?

I had a nice long Thanksgiving weekend, though I did not get nearly as much knitting, spinning, or other things done as I had planned.

I did frog, restart, and finish a sleeve for a yoked sweater using my handspun and Cascade 220:

I think I am in love with this sleeve. I hope I can finish this sweater for the holidays.

I didn’t get around to making more soap this weekend, but I did flip over the half-way cured soap:

Mmm soap. I hope to make two more batches this weekend — then I should have 4 batches that can be given away at holidays. Everyone needs soap, right? Yum!

    Mmm, what does your soap smell like? I love handmade soap. The edge of the sleeve looks really pretty. The color work is nice.

    Love the sleeve. I have been making soap like a maniac for over two months now-and yes, everyone will love it and want more, you’ll see!

    I didn’t know you make soap! I am going to make soy candles as gifts this year, and am planning to learn to make soap for next year.

    Love the sleeve!!
