As always, several projects occupy the various sets of sock needles around the house, and while I'm thoroughly enjoying the knitting I'm engaged in, my stash of gorgeous hand-dyed Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock is taunting me, calling to me to be knit up, and I'm looking forward to finishing my main sock project and casting right back on again.

Here's a photo of the stash pile, colors gleaming in the sun.

Made some candles for the solstice, mostly beeswax mixed with a little paraffin and soy wax. They burn beautifully, and with a subtle natural scent. Scraped together enough time in the days prior to the family holiday gathering to make a shadowbox of naturally colored shells that I had gathered on the beaches of Florida during my visit last February. I had envisioned arranging them in a rainbow of shades blending into one another, and as I put it together, a few shells had a flowery quality, which I turned into an "arrangement" in the center of the piece. I was pretty pleased with how it came out.

Just finished a scarf for my sister tonight, knit up from some experimental handspun mixed with eyelash yarn that she snapped up recently.. I like how it came out, I'll have to take a photo before I give it to her this weekend. Happy there was enough yardage to get the length I wanted.
