I'm guilty....

...of blog neglect :(

I've been teaching myself to crochet, and as with any new craft I pick up, I've become obsessed. I have several new things to list in my shop, but need to take pics. I knitted two scarves, a neckwarmer made from handspun corriedale wool, and a hat. I need a model for these (except the hat I need to buy a head for that..LOL) I was going to enlist my niece one day, for an outdoor photo shoot, but she left before I could take the pics.

I tend to be a bit of a yarn snob and like to work only with natural fibers (maybe a small bit of added man made). However, I realize that not all people can wear wool, and cotton doesn't exude warm wintery goodness to me. So one of my scarves, and the hat are made from acrylic, an interesting looking and soft acrylic, but acrylic none-the-less.

Hopefully, now that mercury is no longer in retrograde I can get out of this slump I've been in and get cranking.
