First Attempt at Lace

I finished my first shawl several days ago. I knitted it with my own handspun yarn. So it's a first on two fronts, really.

Mostly Spinning

My lovely husband, friends, and family collaborated in buying my first spinning wheel. I've started to really enjoy the results and figured it was time to share them with you.

Knitting again

I finished this cowl during thanksgiving, directly after that.. I finished spinning and plying this skein of yarn.

Old before my time.

Here is one of my current projects. I got into free embroidery after I discovered some of my grandmothers work. When I found the napkins and table cloths that she had worked with beautiful flowers and butterflies I called my dad and asked about them. Apparently, they were done during the depression, and not only did my grandmother do all of them herself.. she did them without any patterns, and also re-purposed and bleached potato sacks to make them. Unbelieveable. So here is one of my pitiful attempts. It's going to be a wall-hanging of some sort.
