Rut Busting

If anything can get my knitting mojo going again, it will be these two, right?

Madtosh DK in Charcoal and Malabrigo worsted in Violetas. I'm looking at fingerless mitts patterns for the Madtosh. Not sure yet.

I'm trying my hand at needlepoint too. My local shop was having a major sale on Christmas canvases so I splurged on a cute reindeer with not too many color changes and some silk threads.

I've only done a bit (the red and white stripes on the bottom and some green at the top) but I think it looks nice so far. The back, however, is a hot mess. I'm not tying knots, just slipping the ends of threads under a couple stitches and snipping. Does the back always look messy? Dee?

Sometimes when you have to "run" fibers or change closely --- yes it could look a little messy.

As long as it doesn't show to the front(and, it doesn't look like it does), I wouldn't worry about it too much. The front looks nice and even.

The yarn --- ooooooo, so pretty! Have fun with your projects!

Good for you for knitting. I'm a hard core knitter too! Thanks for commenting on my Swoon quilt.
