Wednesdays Are For Knitting?

I spent some time off and on today working on putting together a Yarn Along post.  I wound yarn into balls for my next project, took some pictures, tried to figure out what I wanted to post, took some more pictures...and now that I'm sitting down, at the last minute of course, to put a post together I find that there is no more Yarn Along :-(.

I completely understand.  Blogging is a lot of work.  Families are a lot of work.  I can't imagine trying to do both.  Well, I sort of can imagine.  There are times when it might be almost a week before I can get a new post put up.  Having to do one on a schedule...well, we know where that would end up - at the last minute of course...if at all.

I am going to try to keep on a Wednesday "accountability" schedule.  Remember a couple months ago when I mentioned "Make Yarn, Use Yarn"?  I think that will be the theme.  Keep after me!

One last shawl picture.  I took it off the blocking boards, worrying that it would all spring back to jumble...and it, of course, did not and I love it even more than I did before.  Actually, there may be more pictures at some point.  I have an idea for a fun "photo shoot" with Liddy.

And moving on to my next project.  This yarn doesn't really look familiar, but it is.  It's the Renny yarn.  I've worked a little on this off and on for about a month or so.  Renny and I needed to do something to get our groove back.  

We made a few color changes and I took pictures all along the way and maybe I'll pull them out and share at some point.  I've also switched patterns to something I think will fit the yarn (and me) better. I'll talk more about that later as well.  Always learning! 

And if you've made it this far and are thinking "yeesh, I wish she'd stop talking about knitting and yarn and just post some more lamb pictures!"  Here you go :-). 

A Liddy story and more Lamb Camp tomorrow!

I love talking, and reading, about yarn! I haven't done the yarn a long in awhile, but I know I'm way off schedule this week and I don't have kids! Some days it's just harder to keep up than others.

Every picture of the shawl just shows how well it turned out. Lambs, a needed smile

Beautiful Yarn!!
I make yarn more than I use it...I need to use more of the yarn I make.

I love lambs, sheep, knitting and yarn - put that in any order you wish and I'll be happy. Your shawl is beautiful. If I had yarn in my stash for it, it would be in my queue (I never publish my queue, because it's always changing). I'll be interested to see what you and Renny make.

And I love your blogging. Thanks for doing it.

Love the words, pics, AND lambies. :-) Please keep the mix. :-)

I was wondering what became of the Renny yarn. Looking forward to seeing you use it. I have been doing more making yarn than using yarn of late. But that is because the next shearing is coming up soon and I want to justify being able to add a few more loves to my flock at some point. And OH those lambies. Really great photo capture!

Lamb photos. It renews the spirit to see them, all peaceful and snuggly. Your knitting sounds restful too, I find that knitting is restorative. So wonderful to see something created from handspun yarn :-)

I have yarn envy from this post, and I do like the thought that we will live up to our own accountabilities in our knitting and reading without Yarn Along :)

And, may I add, your yarn makes a lovely accompaniment to your handsome Comby! :-)

Those are some great colors, I wonder what they will end up being? :)
