Dreaming of New projects in the New Year!!
Happy Holidays everyone!! hoping everyone is filled with abundance of family, food, and everything this holiday represents. The light is coming back!!!
So, it has been ages since I’ve posted here. It has been a busy fall of craft fairs and holiday crafting.
MamaSpider Studio teamed up with WoolyDaisy of Washboard Woolies, and Genevieve of Fairy Tale Felts for the holiday craft fair circuit. It was wildly successful, and all of us spread the warm woolies to others during this Solstice season! It was great fun sharing a booth with these two lovely and creative women!
Now that the flurry of holiday crafting is over….now is the time for MamaSpider to get creative on new fronts…
My latest inspiration for the New Year is to knit 12 socks in 12 months. I was inspired by PrairiePoppins over at Handmade Homeschool, and also by the YarnHarlot, who embarked on her own ” self imposed Sock Club”. great motivation to move thru yarn stash and get a pile of socks out of the deal.
So here is my mosaic of yarns i have chosen to knit into socks this year…most likely most of my socks will be of the “plain vanilla” sort ( you know, just a whole lot of stockinette or easy rib) since I have these little critters around here I homeschool. That way i can knit during read aloud time with Maizie etc.
1. EKF BFL sock “Carmelita”, 2. EKF enchantments ” Chai”, 3. EKF enchantments “Rom”, 4. EKF BFL Sock ” Red Dirt Girl”, 5. Socks that Rock ” Rooster Rock”, 6. Socks that Rock ” Autumn on Tap”, 7.Shephard sock ( from Colrain MA), 8. Enchanted Knoll Farm “Sunflowers”, 9. Hello Yarn Fat Sock “Nostalgia”, 10. Plymouth Happy Feet, 11. mamaspider Handspun 3 ply, 12. Socks that Rock “Honey”
I am also knitting up several sweaters, and have a lot of weaving projects in mind. I will be blogging about these fibery exploits soon!!
Happy Holidays and wishing you an abundant New Year!!!!
