I did’t get around to posting yesterday, sorry.

I’m currently making  a cardigan for Gavin.  This is the picture from the pattern.

I’m done with the knitting for the body, I’m adding a hood.  I may have to rework the hood as my first attempt came up..um…short.  I may, if I have enough yarn, add pockets.

Making this ^ with this:

I am learning hairpin lace, I am glad I am, but I’m not sold on it as a technique yet. It is a tad fiddly.

I am still working on socks I have no pictures for and my sweater. I have finished a scarf, but I’m not ready to show that one yet 😉

UPDATE! I totally for got to post the picture of my new earring frame!

I had the frame and used some leftover sock yarn and I even had the staples to put it all together!  I saw this on Pinterest a while back and have been wanting to do it, when I found some extra frames I set to work.

With the start of a new round at one of my Ravelry groups, the WIP are multiplying faster then tribbles.  This is the third time knitting this, because I am developing a pattern for it.

Next is another pair of socks.  Who are they for? Who knows yet. (sorry no pics of them yet).  I am making a leafy scarf from the home spun I showed last week.  I have also started a new sweater, here are my gathered materials.

I have a few other ideas, but this is just what I have started.

I don’t have a lot in the way of WIP right now, but come next week it should really pick up!

Back about two months ago I won some fiber from one of my Ravelry groups.  I received some lovely red with muti-clored pieces, of unknown content.  I also got some extremely rare CVM or Romeldale, California Variegated Mutant.  Well they had me at Mutant!  It has lovely tight crimp, and is very fine.  I got the fleece raw and washed it.  I carded it picking out the lightest going to darkest. I spun it the same way, making a gradient through the whole skein.

I left all the broken and miscolored little bits to make it sluby and tweedy.

This fleece is known for its softness, and wearablity next to the skin.  I believe that this yarn wants to be a lacy scarf, stay tuned to see if it will!

I know I go on ad nauseum about socks.  So just a picture.

See?!?!  Now if only you could feel them on!  They are Horseshoe cable socks from Judith Durant in the book 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders.  I used Marks & Kattens Fame Trend.  Lets take another look…

I am also working on a test knit for a fellow Raveler.  I can’t show progress right now but soonish I will be able to share.

A Cowl for Memaw

Another bowl and actually I made three more but only two got recorded.

I finished this years eggs!

And best of all…I got the sweater done!

Here are some of the things I have finished lately.

Some socks for Gavin from Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Graffiti Colori 6 Ply.

I crocheted a lace bowl and stiffened it.  This one was gifted to my mom.

This Tribble is destined to leave me to a new home!

I am still plugging away at my top down sweater and Easter eggs.
