Knitting with Hemp

This is my first time knitting with hemp. I bought some on the Knit Pixie website to make a ponchette. I'm actually finding it easy to knit with, although I found tons of knots when winding it into balls. I hear it gets softer with washing, so I'm excited to get this done and see how it turns out! Here's my progress so far:

I found another blog...

I ran across (well, actually googled for) any other people dealling with endometriosis and infertility. I found one that just seemed like a carbon copy of my life. She had stopped posting in October and seemed pretty dejected. I am praying for her.

It's on!

I've decided no more yarn buying until I knit up some of my stash! I'm working on a brown shawl, a hemp ponchette, an Irish hiking scarf for my husband (which probably won't be ready until next winter!) I also just got some Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton to make a baby hat for either my niece or one of 3 babies we know coming this summer. That yarn is soooooooooo soft! Can't wait to start it. I'm about a quarter of the way done with the ponchette so I'm pretty motivated to get that going. We'll see.
