No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth

It only feels like I have.

First off, the man had his wisdom teeth removed. All 4 at once and boy was that an adventure. He has been feeling better and even trying to eat daring things like sandwiches instead of peanut butter shakes and pudding. I didn't realized how much time it takes just to nurse someone, so I haven't done a whole lot of knitting.

I did finish a garter stitch scarf for my mom's twin sister, but didn't get a photo of it. It was made out of Lana Grossa Caramella which has been discontinued, unfortunately. It was my mom's and her twin sister's birthday on Tuesday. They both turned 48, making this a spectacular year because they are now exactly twice my age. Scary huh? I probably wouldn't have mentioned their age either if it wasn't such a special year. I haven't finished much else. I have been working on my second rosepath scarf, which is over 3/4 done, but still looks about the same as where it was in the photo above, only longer.

I have however been working on a special project. All of this handspun is for a secret project that I am working on. That's all I'll say for now.

Though speaking of handspun, these two skeins of yarn will be for sale at Knot Another Hat very soon. The top one is 100% superwash wool, handpainted by me. I named it Huckleberry Surprise. It is a worsted weight and is 4 oz (116 grams) and 145 yards. I am selling it for $30. The bottom one is 80% Corriedale wool 20% cashmere, plus a little bit of sparkle that shows up if you click on the photo. It is handpainted by me then run through my drum carder a couple of times to mix all of the fibers. I named it Sugar Plum Fairy. It is also worsted weight and is 4 3/4 oz (138 grams) and 172 yards. I am selling it for $40. As always, if you are interested in any of these handspun yarns email the shop at

Wow! All 4 wisdom at the same time? My dentist did one side at a time, over two months, so I had time to recover and eat. I'm glad he's feeling better now.

I can certainly feel for your man. I, too, had all four of my wisdom teeth removed at the same time 30 years ago and I can still remember the throbbing pain. Good thing you knitting to help keep you sane.
