Look what I did!

That's Corriedale wool that I spun!

I took a drop spindle class yesterday. Um...dangerous. :-) I think I'll be doing more of this!

However...I have to keep in mind the other projects I have going on and want to have going on...

Notably, the 7 projects that are actually started, and the 1 that has been partially dissected on paper. Oh - and those are only the knitting projects. That doesn't include the Christmas cards that I've been wanting to make. (Which I told myself last year that I'd give up on if they aren't done by Thanksgiving...much of the holiday season was spent freaking out over finishing the cards... Oh, and I haven't started them. Nope. Hardly even an idea yet.)

On the knitting projects, I've been continuing slowly on them. I can see progress!

View from our Window

So, I still haven't managed to find the photos of our new place...they apparently weren't on my camera...Hope they're still on the other one ;-)

But! Here's a photo from our bedroom window.

The tree to the left is now naked & all the leaves have been blown away by the landscapers. But the tree below (the one at the right of the photo above) still has leaves & is less green now.

This photo is my background right now at work. I took it on one of our lunch time walks in the parking lot.
This one is also from the walk...There are trees like that around about 1/3 of the campus, and also lining several blocks of the street outside our campus. So pretty!

Ha! I'm doing well catching up on the posts I could almost do while my camera cable was missing... There are still a couple more. :-)

Sick = Knitting time

I stayed home sick a couple days last week - nothing too horrible, just didn't want to spread it around the office. While I was out...I got to work on 2 of my ongoing (for too long?) projects.

The first is a pair of socks that I started in June, which had taken a long break to accomodate other projects. Pattern: Hedgerow socks (ravlink). Yarn is KP Essential Kettle Dyed. I finished the first sock, but haven't gotten a photo yet, so here's an old one ;-) The finished first sock fits perfectly & I'm sure I'll wear them often!

Besides the sock, I made quite a bit of progress on my Kimono Sweater, and hopefully can move past the (endless?) cabling this weekend and on to the (endless) stockinett stitch upper body ;-)

I also was able to gift the Anhinga sweater (ravlink) to it's recipient a couple weekends ago. It looks super cute on her & I hope she can get a lot of wear out of it.

That's enough for a Tuesday ;-) I (obviously...) found my camera cable & have lots of photos to share!
