Wrapping Up May

 Well I pretty much stunk at blogging this month, I always have great intentions but somehow I get busy and then I never get around to it.  There has been spinning and knitting.

This is my Color Affection wrap that I using three different handspun yarns for.  I am really enjoying knitting this.  I am on the 6th repeat of the the third part.

These were my "Away from Home" Socks because I was just knitting on them away from home but now I am just trying to get them finished.  I am about halfway through the foot on the second one.

I didn't make much progress this month on my yearly goal to spin 12 pounds of fiber.   I am about 12 ounces behind schedule but hopefully can make it up this summer during Tour de Fleece.  This is Gale's Art 80/20 Merino Silk.  I got about 780 yards of a two ply heavy laceweight.

This is Two Window's Dye Co. BFL in an unnamed colorway that I have called Salmon to Blue Gradient.  It is a two ply of about 260 yards.

FatCatKnits Spin a Long

I finished my FatCatKnits spin a long.  I got around 296 yards of heaving fingering that I am planning to use for a pair of socks at some point.
