See how I am?
I spoiled you all last week! Well it has been a busy week. Lot's of snow here in Central New York, little big geek has been home sick for 3 days with strep. Poor kid was sick on a snow day! But he is on the mend.
I had some family obligations this weekend so I missed my 1st guild meeting ever! It was the annual gift exchange. I know I have mentioned that we get some fiber back in May. We can either spin it or get mill spun yarn. I chose to spin mine this year and knit up a couple of things:
Yeah, they are nice and all... but guess what I got???? I wish I could show a picture but I can't because the light is bad! So go trot over to Carla's place and check it out.
OH MY GOD DOT COM!
This is what I got! Can you believe it? It is so so beautiful! I LOVE IT!!!! Words can not describe.... well yes they can! It's gorgeous
Thank you Carla!
Okay, back to my stuff.
Pattern for the hat is from One Skein Wonders
Yarn: My own handspun. Alpaca/Merino Blend
Needles: US 6 Circular (I think)
Pattern for the Wristwarmers: Wisp of the Mist Wrist Warmers From Compassionate Knitting - Tara Jon Manning
Yarn: See above
Needles: US 5 Dpns
Okay, back to Carla's shawl. I am going to take pictures of it this weekend!
Did I mention that I love it and I want to marry it?

Yeah, too bad that you didn't have any fun with the Holiday Project and didn't like your gift! Don't worry - there's always next year... Finn wool. I already can't wait!

Poor Little Geek! He's missing out on the snow fun. :-(
Beautiful shawl. Can you marry a shawl...or do you just live in sin, with it?
