Inspiration

So, this Christmas I got my tapestry loom I'd been dreaming about for awhile. While dreaming of things to make on the loom....

I kinda forgot to be inspired to knit.

This was until yesterday, which is why I really have nothing to show today. I started working on some armwarmers out of Andean Treasure from KnitPicks. I'm about to work on it some more after I finish blogging, but for now I only have about 4 rows finished. I will probably end up taking this project to the spinning get-together tomorrow, instead of my gargantuan Kromski wheel.

I will, however, be taking my spindle with me, as apparently Aubrey is going to do an educational bit on spindling. I have never quite mastered this art, so this is as good a time as any to start.

The Secret Pal 7 exchange has started, and I've already started in on the person I'm the pal for, and my SP has already posted a couple of times on my blog with some much appriciated compliments. I'm glad I joined this exchange, this is going to be a lot of fun!

Ok, that's all for now. I'm off to play with my tooth-picks and string. Happy knitting!

Good luck with the spindle! I hope you get some useful tips.

You aren't the only one bringing a knitting project instead of hauling out the wheel, but my excuse is time not size. *sigh*

See ya there!
