Still catching up on all that you've missed since I've fallen into the vortex of Ravelry...
've done some spinning...
This is Louet Northern Lights roving in the "Tropical Skittles" colorway.
Spun as a thin single and Navaho plied! Whee!
I am truly loving my Julia! The Victoria is great, but very short. Since I've aged, getting "very short" is on my "Don't even think you can still do that!" list.
This is my baby. She is a truly fine tuned little machine!
I've taken this lovely handspun (a bit overspun, I think) and am knitting the Baby Surprise Jacket from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop.
These pictures don't reflect the amount I've gotten done on this. All that's left to do is the seaming! I adore this pattern! The "surprise" really gets you, every single time it folds! Amazing mind, that EZ!
I've also recruited friends on this particular adventure. This is Susan's first BSJ (although I hear she's planning another one!) She gets just as excited about the "Surprise" part as I do!
In addition the the many UFO's that I'm still working on, I've started a new project, just for me! It's a top down raglan Cardigan made of Brooks Farm "Riata" #93 colorway.
Wool and Mohair and Silk! Oh, my!
I think it is progressing nicely!
I've made it past the armholes and am now in stockinette purgatory, knitting rows and rows and rows!
I made it a V-neck (I hope). The arms are waiting on waste yarn, to be knit down later. The underarm was done with a provisional cast on, which will, I think, be easy to pick up with the arm stitches.
I don't know what I'm going to do for the bottom. I think I'll just turn it under for a hem.
Oh, and lest we forget....FO!
No I haven't forgotten my Rockin' Sock Club! May I present Gumdrops, knit of STR lightweight in the "Goody,Goody" colorway!
I loved making these. The pattern was actually memorizable, and I took them everywhere! And they feel delicious!
Now that I'm sort of caught up, I guess I'll set my timer for my 10 minutes of Ravelry...or maybe I'll just go knit!
