some finished some started some waiting

Standard

I finished the school insomnia’s aka the playoff socks just in time for the Canucks to bottom out and be eliminated from playoff standings.

You can’t really see all the cableing work, and yes that is my fault and the fault of my camera…. but a new one is on the wishlist and maybe someday I’ll actually get it.  For now it’s more of a “if  I need it” kind of budget….

The handspun delight shawlette was compleated and blocked, you may notice I flubbed the point (how I may never know) but I am content, as similar to me it’s just a little off. It also shows off the transitions perfectly, this was the first time I tried to spin a semi-graduated color shift, and i think all the work really paid off. It will come in handy on chilly nights.

Never to be one left without a sock on the needles this lovely fellow is the cherry swirl from handmaiden/fleeceartist. In Nyomi (i think) Black, brown, and electric green? HELL YES!. It’s martian tastic.

No spinnig yet, I really need to get some serious carding done, and I will. It’s at times like these I wish I had a drum carder. As I don’t I shall continue with my hand carding rolags.
