Yes the Knitting Wahoo is still around

I have not posted for a number of weeks... well actually since August... life has been busy, I have been knitting, knitting, knitting.. and well I just did not get around to it.

I have joined a history group.... The United Daughters of the Confederacy [UDC] and find myself in cemeteries and libraries more than with my needles for the moment... Genealogy is the one thing I have done longer than knit... I keep finding dead people... well of course they are in cemeteries.. but man I love it.. I started doing genealogy when I was 12.. and am 40 now.. so this has truly been a life long hobby/passion.

Below are a few things I have been doing since my last post.
a gift for a friend at church who had her baby in September. This blanket was fairly fast as the blue and white yarns are combined to be knit on size 13 needles.
I am spinning this on my Kromski wheel It is slow going... as I have to do so when I have the time.. but yarn is going to be incredible.. the colors of the roving are great.....
This is the picture I used for my Veteran's day cards to family. The artwork is by Tom Holland... A local Boy Scout.
