Getting Some More Things Done

Amazingly enough, I have managed to get a few things done that have been plaguing me for a while. I finally used this pretty green yarn that I created with my drop spindle.

Whatcha Doin?

I turned it into a headband, altho it also works as a necklace or scarf on my daughter, Fee. I am working on using the pink & purple now. Some of the purple has become a bracelet & I am sewing on some of the pink to that bracelet now. Pictures later.

Banana Silk Fibers

I also managed to figure out how to use my round looms & actually made something I can be seen in with it.

Rainbow Cowl

I actually made three things with it. I made another rainbow cowl like this one for myself. This one shown fits the baby. I also made a purple one, but it unraveled & I'm sorting it out now.

I got myself this far in knitting with sticks. Did you know, loom knitting came first? Wikipedia it. It's true. Oh and men did it before women. Hence, people were able to catch fish to eat back in the day.

#knitting on this chilly night, what else do we do to pass the #winter ?

Hey it's progress. And I'll take whatever progress I can get in this regard. It's been extremely slow going for me. Loom knitting, on the other hand has been easy peasy for me, so I stick with it happily. --Heather :) P.S: I hope my blogging "voice" doesn't come off edgy or anything. I've been watching a lot of Daria lately, and that sometimes happens to me. I <3 Jane. She's my fav.

The King of Connacht II

The King of Connacht II
In 2005, on this day we had a gorgeous baby boy with blond hair & green eyes enter our lives. We named him after King Rory O'Connor or RuaidhrĂ­ Ua Conchobhair. By the time Rory was born at least a foot of snow was dumped on top of us. He, like his siblings were all born in Worcester, MA. By the same OB/GYN, a family friend. Today Rory is 8 and we have almost a foot of snow out there again. Ruaidri was the last High King, before the Norman Invasion of Ireland. I google searched Rory's name probably a 100 or more times. I found both men & women with the name. A doctor, a golfer, a Kennedy, a character in a awesome TV show, The Gilmore Girls, I even met a Rory while in College. It is still one of my favorite all time names. He is a beautiful, loving boy. I cannot get over how much of a love-bug he is. I am overjoyed to be his mother. Every day I wake up & think what a lucky person I am to have met him & his siblings and have all of them in my life.
