That prickly thing in my throat on Friday ...has spread to lungs and sinuses and has left me feeling like... well... Yuck!
Even so, I've managed to get a few things done in the past few days.
There was prize awarding over at Seasons of Lace...
There might actually be enough for a hat there...(Ain't it lovely, it's from Grafton Fiber Arts)
Oops. I hope the thing can hold together long enough for me to get the singles off. I guess I won't be Navajo plying THIS one straight from this bobbin, now will I.
I hope to ply both of these soon (no, not together! talk about clown barf!). Then I'll figure out something to do with them. I'm ALMOST ready to tackle the soy silk...
And no, I've not been neglecting my needles. I'm just trying to put in a half hour a day on the wheel, to get my spinning up to snuff, that's all.
I pulled out the Xmas stocking, and wielded the needlepoint needle for a bit. I'd show you, but you'd hardly be able to tell the difference. I'll photograph it when I achieve some markable milestone.
I also pulled Natalia out of hiding, and spent a few hours with the sleeve and some Supernatural
It seems like there ought to be more to show for it, but there it is. I blame the cold. (and the eye candy).
There has also been design work. I'm working on a pair or two of socks for an upcoming book that Crystal Palace Yarns will be putting out. I was very excited to start on one pair, and when the Panda Superwash arrived, I cast on promptly. Alas, this color hadn't looked quite this dark on my screen when I chose it... and is a bit too dark to show the design...
I'm loving the yarn though. I'm sure I'll come up with something delicious to do with it. The only challenge will be to keep DH from demanding that I knit socks for him -- he likes the colorway too.
I've even been working on Laminaria. I put it in time out when I had to tink back two whole rows because I'd missed the last 2-into-9 stitch on row one of the blossom chart. GRR. I'll likely pick it up this afternoon though. I AM eager to finish ... there's so much in the queue!!
