Big-Bag-O-Sheepy-Smelling Fleece

Posted by Picasa
I thought it was time for a short spinning travelogue - this is a bag of fleece I got some years ago, it SMELLS GREAT, very sheepy, and is taking me quite some time to spin up!

New Alpaca Scarf with Quilt

Posted by PicasaHere is a new scarf project that really wanted to pose with the quilt. I copied the pattern from a store-bought (pink) scarf I found. I'm not sure how much of the curling will block out, but stay tuned for further progress!

One Complete Sock

Posted by PicasaHere is the latest new arrival, currently awaiting the completion of its mate (which looks surprisingly close in progress to where this particular sock was two weeks ago). Blocking nicely on the former-hanger-now-a-sock-blocker.
