Spiders and Protecting my Neck

A little spider left the preschool on Thursday and I just had to keep him.

And then I had three vampires show up on Friday. They spent the night so I decided to take their picture this morning. I guess they think candy is going to show up soon.

I guess it is a good thing I started a new project yesterday. This will protect my neck from the vampires and the elements this winter. I am knitting it out of some handspun yarn.

Cheating Pays Off on Occasion

For once, my cheating paid off. This is the yarn that I spun up on Thursday and Friday of last week.

This is the Sunday Market Shawl (scarf) that I have been knitting on since Saturday.

This is the finished scarf. I decided not to block it since I like the way it looks unblocked.

This is the Punkinbug treadling on my wheel. I asked her if she wanted to learn to spin and she tells me "When I am older, Mom."

Cheating and a Ghost

I am cheating on my spinning. I NEVER cheat on my spinning. I always finish spinning something before I start something else. I was really enjoying spinning this Greenwood Fiberworks merino but I saw a project that I wanted to knit NOW and I decided I wanted to knit it out of handspun. I plan to make it smaller like a scarf.

I decided that this would be the perfect fiber for this project.

This is the first bobbin.

Yesterday, there was a ghost around my house. This ghost was in search of the "Mean Daddy Monster". The ghost was able to find the "Mean Daddy Monster" and scare him.

A Minor Knitting Setback

I had a little knitting setback. I guess it wasn't even a set back since I had five needles. Somehow this needle got bent and when I tried to bend it back it snapped.

I am still working on the second Boring Black Sock. I was halfway through the leg when I noticed a mistake that I thought I could fix, but I just found more mistakes so I ripped it out and started over.

Think I'll go knit now............

The Blogging Spirits Have Been Mean to Me

I have been HORRIBLE about blogging lately. I think about blogging and then I think I want to have some more progress on such and such progress and then I have days I don't think about it at all. I hope there are still people out there wanting to read this.

I took a picture for the blog and as I was taking the picture the camera battery died. I guess this post will have to wait until tomorrow. I do have progress to show though.
