Projects, Projects, Projects
I just don't seem to be happy unless I have lots of projects in process. Here it is, the beginning of 2011 and I am running true to form! In Knitting there is the lace KAL I have recently started, pictured above (ravelry group Southern Cross Fiber Haruni). I just love this yarn I spun as part of Plying Games and so glad the yardage looks right for this shawl. Then there are my October socks - on hold when I started knitting christmas gifts, still waiting but should be a good mindless knit for social knitting. A pumpkin hat just barely started for a niece whose
baby is due at the end of Feb. I had better get that one moved along! I have another friend who is pregnant but not due until March - have the yarn but haven't started that one yet. Then there is my September socks - started last March but left sitting in this yarn They are the lovely Rivendell socks by Janel Laidman and I do love this project, not social knitting for sure.
In spinning there is a sweater project front and center. BFL in mixed natural colors for an Iced sweater. This is a KSL/KAL in ravelry group Spunky Eclectic. At least until the spinning is done it wont go into the knitting queue! LOTS of fiber in my stash just waiting to jump on the spinning wheel. I think after I finish the sweater lot I will treat myself to a quick spin with 4 oz. of handpainted loveliness - but which one????
Now for the weaving. Have located some yarn to finish the project that came with my 4 harness Leclerc Dorothy and have a warp on the warping board for 2 scarf projects. The warp is white wool and I think this skein of Claudia Handpainted wool/silk will make a lovely scarf.
