Well, I went to work for a little OT this morning and stopped at my LYS – Needle on the Square on the way home. After getting lovlingly chastised by not one but two employees – cough Mary cough cough Becky cough – I thought I should give you a little update on what I’ve been doing.
I haven’t been knitting. My poor Marvelous Mitts have sat almost neglected – although they did go to our Knit Night Christmas party for a “coming out” show.
I spun this:
It’s nice gray wool from some of the sheep at the Farm where I got my wheel (still unnamed BTW).
And I spun this:
It’s Goblin Eyes from Spunky Eclectic’s Fiber Club (October. Received the DAY I shipped the old wheel off to it’s new home). I know dimes and quarters seem to be the norm when showing off singles but a nickle was all I could dig up out of my change pocket.
However, after I go try my hand at washing a fleece, I’m going to get back to knitting on my mitts. And this:
It’s part of a top secret project (that you’re not supposed to tell anyone about Mary and Becky!) that I got at NOTS today. The other part I have here already. I’m aiming on it being done by Christmas (stop that mad laughing!) but if not then it’s OK.
Now, I must go get all stinky and greasy before our company Christmas party this evening… (can we extend the holidays for like another month so I don’t have so much crammed into such a short time period??)
