Crochet, Spinning, and Hitchhiking

I got on a crochet kick and crocheted seven new dishcloths.

I finished spinning the Eye of Jupiter corriedale.  I got about 172 yards.  It is a worsted weight that is very squishy.

I finally decided to knit a Hitchhiker.  I have been contemplating this for a very long time for some reason.  I have a feeling I will be buying patterns this year instead of yarn.  I really want to use up the yarn that I have. I do tend to pick free patterns but if I find one I really like I will make it from stash.  The stitch marker is where I started yesterday.

I moved the stitch marker to where I started today.  I am curious how far I can get today.

A Little Spinning

I am way behind on my spinning this year.  I have lots I want to spin but can't seem to get the motivation to spin more.  This is deep stash (yea Me), Woolen St. Mill Eye of Jupiter on corriedale.  It was in three separate pieces and I turned each one of them into 18 rolags.  I am spinning them supported long draw and I plan to navajo ply it.

Here is the bobbin shot.  I am thinking either a crazy hat or a pair of mitts of some sort.

This is my most recent finished yarn, 406 yards of superwash merino by Wild Ivy the color was Stolen Moments.  This was spun straight from the braid and navajo plied.  I am looking forward to knitting it soon.

Project Monogamy....Kinda

The sweater is in the penalty box because I have to reknit the sleeves because they were too long. 

 I knit and gave away this baby blanket for my great niece.  It is the Little Bubbles pattern.  I think it was well received.  I failed to take a picture of the completed blanket.  I knit on this exclusively until it was finished (at least at home that is where the kinda comes in).

I had actually started this shawl before the baby blanket but I decided to knit a blanket since my original plan didn't work out.  I picked this back up and this will be my at home project until it is finished.  I am using handspun Dark BFL in Gumball from Gale's Art.
