Last night I finished knitting a Paris Toujours shawl! It's a wool / cotton blend that is light, soft and fluffy, and I'm hoping will be comfortable not only in the winter, but also on cool winter evenings.
Before Thanksgiving, I finished spinning this Waterlilies roving from The Yarn Wench on Etsy. Since I had two braids, I combined them and chain plyed, to keep the color changes as clean as possible. It still needs to be wet finished (soaked and dried), but love how it came out.
After Thanksgiving, the spinning wheel was out, along with braid of wool called Young and Old from Three Waters Farm. It looked like this while it was being spun:
and this once it was chain plyed:
In 2010, Bunny Hill Designs was doing the Snowbound Block of the Month on her design, and although I was able to keep up with it for a while, I did fall behind, put it away, and have just pulled it out again. (If you remember, my book was released in October, 2010, so it was a busy year!) If I keep working on it, it should be finished in time to hang before Christmas next year.
That's it for now....
