The Wheel Keeps Turning

One of these days I will learn that spinning lace to fingering weight takes a long time.  I have come to terms with the fact that I probably won't finish the 12 pounds spun in 2012.  I think I am somewhere in the seven pounds spun so far.  This is UrbanGypz Merino/Silk in Nantucket, a skein of approximately 650 yards.,

This is Fat Cat Knits Falkland in Gaia.  It is the one of the colors from the September 2012 Mythology fiber club.  This skein is around 135 yards.

This is the fiber currently on the wheel.  It is BFL from Frabjous fiber and I have 8 oz of it. 

Isn't it a pretty bobbin?????

Two FO's, a HO, and a WIP

Since I haven't been blogging much I guess I was knitting quite a bit.

 Happy Half Moon shawl by Susan Ashcroft.  I used Knit Picks Shadow Lace and Woolgatherings Fancy Pants from May 2012.

 Remember the post about needing a hat.  I finished it in two days but forgot to blog about it.  It is the Simple Slouchy Hat and I used Malabrigo Worsted in Brisa.
 One of the great things about being a spinner is getting to knit with handspun.  These are the Midnight Dreary  pattern and I used some Wild Ivy BFL that I spun.  They are a little too big so I think they will go in the gift pile.
 This is my HO.  These are just a simple sock.  I am using Desert Vista Dyeworks in Electric Middle Schooler.
This is my WIP.  This is a TGV by Susan Ashcroft. I am using my Woolgatherings June Fiber Adventurer.  It is a superfine merino that is so soft.
