A whole month has come and gone since my last post. A lot has been happening here. For those of you who check out my knitting on Ravelry you know that I have been keeping my fingers busy. I have finished a few things and of course cast on a few more :) What's new right? Here are a few of my latest finished projects.
Another project finished with my handspun yarn. The roving was a gift from my HHHH swap buddy.
I started knitting socks out of this yarn but halfway through the first sock I took a vote on what other knitters thought I should knit. And there was an overwhelming number of votes for me to make mittens. So mittens I knit and I love them. No pattern just my own design knit from the fingers down. Love them!!!
Next I knit some Denmark socks for the Knitting on the Road book. I used the leftovers from my Bird in Hand mittens that I knit for the Ravelympics. I had plenty of STR in Lodestone leftover. I love these they are so soft and squishy.
I have been spinning every time my fingers need a break from knitting and I spun my Spunky Eclectic Club roving in "Thermograph" This was such a fun spin so soft. I love spinning BFL.
more info about this yarn on my ravelry page.
I also got my September shipment from the Spunky Club in "Acadia" isn't it lovely. I can't decide how I want to spin this yet. I am waiting to see how other club members spin this beauty up.
I also got my dkKnits roving from here fiber club. I love this too. I will be spinning this one soon too as soon as I free up my bobbins :)
"hot fudge sundae with real cherries" mmm...my favorite!
I also got my September and October shipments from dkKnits "Wool dye for Ewe" sock club. I have to get alot of my wips finished...hopefully before I cast on one of these lovely yarns.
September "Spinning Addict" perfect name don't you think?
October "taking the kids trick or treating"
I have also been playing around with my camera...My new friend Donna takes beautiful pictures and has inspired me to take advantage of my camera. Donna, the kids and I have gone on a couple of nature walks. Here are just a couple of my favorite shots. You can check out more on my flickr page.
If you are still with me in this long post I also wanted to let you all know that I started my new job on the 3rd. I love it even though it uses up A LOT of my knitting, spinning, and sewing time. Oh well I gotta do what I gotta do to pay the bills right? :)
Sorry for such a long post. Thanks for checking in on me. I will try and post again when more things happen around here. Maybe next week after our visit to the pumpkin patch. Yay fall!
