I've been bemoaning the fact that I haven't been getting much done the last few weeks but when I started pulling out various project I realized that I've done more than I thought. It's just that I have so many things on the go that the work that was accomplished is spread out among them.
Here are the in-progress ones.
Pimpelliese using my fractal spun merino/silk fiber from Bee Mice Elf. I have passed the half-way point and started the decreases. I really love the subtle color gradation. I think it's the perfect pattern choice for fractal spun yarn.
I succumbed to knitting the Noro Striped Scarf pattern and am on the home stretch. I have no plans for it at this point. It may be a gift for someone.
I have done some spinning too. I finished processing some lovely Corriedale/Rambouillet fleece from Val (woolywoolofthewest on Etsy).
Each skein is about 320 yds. and 170 g, woolen spun from batts. I dyed the fiber to co-ordinate with my winter coat and am thinking about making myself some Newfoundland mitts.
I spun up the Spunky Eclectic Emerald City fiber from my stash. It's Masham and was the club fiber from November/10. I spun it as singles and was pleased with the result. Masham is a long wool, sturdy enough for singles. It can get wiry if it's over-spun.
I got 300 yds from 220 g of fiber.
I couldn't resist taking another picture of it in direct sunlight because it's so pretty.
This skein will be for sale at Golden Willow when I get there next.
