All that to say, I have knitting progress! First, some finished objects.
Lacy Baktus scarf, complete with kitty butt for scale. Its about 5.5 feet wide, and I really like it! I have yet to wear it, but I think it will be a nice addition to my wardrobe :) I knit this with Knit Picks Stroll Hand Painted yarn in the Make Believe colorway and size 3 needles. I was surprised at how SOFT this yarn is! Stroll has definitely become my go-to solid color yarn for socks! I may even try out more of the hand painted colors.
I also finished this pink hat:
Robin's Egg Blue hat) is really cute and I may make another, but this yarn is SO not my color. I'm not a big pink person anyway, and this is bright, bubblegum pink. I used Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Chunky in the Dried Rose color with size 10 needles. The color looked more tan-ish pink than bright pink when I ordered it a while ago. Lesson learned, and hopefully someone will appreciate it!
The last finished object is a preemie hat.
Preemie Baby Beanie Pattern, and I will definitely be using it again. So cute!
Here's a progress pic on the second Christmas stocking:
I know its sideways, its just how I uploaded it, and I didn't want to go back and change it :) I'm making good progress. My goal is to finish the actual knitting by Thursday so I have 2 days to do the duplicate stitch and block them. Maybe I should go ahead and block the other one now! Anyway, this is the New Ancestral Christmas Stocking from the Mason Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines book. I'm using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes since it was cheap :)
I've also got some spinning in progress that I'm hoping to finish by the end of the month. Here's a photo:
This is the new spindle that my husband made me. Its not perfect, but its lots lighter than the one I learned on, and I'm enjoying how much easier it is to spin thinner! This is a Teal Corriedale that I got from Curly C'ewes shop on Etsy. I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the month, but we'll see!
The other work in progress is a secret project that I might be able to blog about tomorrow. Teaser!
