A few people have asked me about my tweet this morning:
Even if a woodchuck could chuck wood, why would he bother? http://bit.ly/5mpFr
Before you have me committed, let me explain. I woke up with “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck…” in my head at 5 am this morning (sanity is not my strong suit). Not even knowing what a woodchuck looks like, I decided to google it. The pic appeared on the first page of hits. I figured, why would a woodchuck chuck wood when armed to the teeth like that? Seemed a bit pointless. OK. You can have me committed now.
My sock-knitting frenzy came to a screaming halt during this year’s Tour de Fleece. I spent the Tour spinning a kilo of “Champagne” from Spunky Eclectic.
A new bug has taken over - sweater knitting!
This one should be done in a couple of days and I already have plans in place for a few more.
Another bug took hold during the Tour de Fleece - felted singles.
“Selfish” Shetland felted singles from Spunky Eclectic Fibre Club:
Knit into a Forest Canopy:
The two bugs have combined into a new project. Not sure where this one will go, but it’ll definitely be a sweater of some kind.
Grey Corriedale felted singles (worsted weight):
I started knitting a swatch with it a few nights ago. I was enjoying the yarn so much I didn’t stop until I ran out. It knit up beautifully at 4.5 sts/in.
Lastly, a few shout outs:
- Amy - congratulations on the release of Spin Control. It truly is a wonderful book and I’m so very proud of you. xoxo+++

- Adrian - you are the Preserve Queen of the Universe. Thanks for the daily dose of mouth-watering goodies. I’m counting the days until I get to taste some of them.
