Newest FO!!!!!

This is the newest finished object to come off my needles.  I knit this for the my LYS as a shop sample.  I think it is a fun and amazing scarf.  It didn't look too great on me but I so enjoyed knitting it. It really is hard to hate knitting anything that you get to knit with Malabrigo.

A Little Bit of Spinning!

I finally finished the shetland I was spinning. I had planned to knit a Shetland Pi Shawl ( Ravelry Link), but I don't have quite enough yarn.  I ended up with about 986 yards of a light fingering weight yarn.  I think it will still make a beautiful shawl and I might still try to use the pattern I had originally planned on using.  I might be able to take a repeat out or something.

At one point I got a little tired of spinning the shetland so I started this.  I have eight ounces of this Merino/Silk in the Down to Earth colorway.  

This is the first bobbin.  This picture really doesn't do the yarn justice.  I am hoping it will look better when it is plied and in yarn form.

The Sock Post

I finished this pair of Mockery Socks out of Fleece Artist in the Cosmic Dawn colorway.

I am making good progress on this pair of Knit One Crochet Two 3/1 Rib socks.  I have a couple more inches before starting the toe of the second one.

I started these last Saturday while I was watching the kids play at the park.  I am almost done decreasing the gusset for the first sock.  These are just plain vanilla socks with a hemmed cuff, sometimes you just need some mindless knitting.

Still A Success To Me

I didn't make the two miles like I had planned but I think it was a success to me nonetheless.   I was able to finish the Kick Sack yesterday.

 I was also able to finish my Electron Socks yesterday also. These two projects added 655 yards to my total. I ended up with 1021 yards knit in May, which is around .58 miles of yarn knit.

I got closer on the spun yarn.  I ended up with a total of 1356 yards spun including this Black BFL from Gale's Art.  I am planning on using this for another Forest Canopy Shawl I think.
