What needs to be done
Now Playing: A Disney Movie of some sort
Topic: Knitting and spinning
Is that I need to write down everything I have on my needles at this point and finish them.
I have the feather and fan shawl made from my maroon hand spun. About 40% done
The purple grape vine socks are 25% done - a Christmas present for _____
I just started the bluebelle ruanna from Big Girl Knits. I don't think I like the way it is going, so I might rip it out and do something else with it. I should also mention that I only have half the yarn spun for that project anyway.
Started a log cabin blanket out of some stash. That will be a winter project.
As for what's on my spindles:
The awesome blue and green merino that I am spinning for socks. About 50% spun. I am going to make the pomatomus socks with that.
Started spinning the kool aide roving in green and yellow also for socks. Too soon to even count as something on my spindles.
Now what's in my knitting queue:
I bought some hand spun at Bella Yarn Friday. How could I not pass this up? All the yarn to make a poncho, plus the pattern for $10. Only problem is that I need a large poncho for me, so I bought 2 kits. I should have enough to make one for me and another one for Nicole. Any chance of this getting done by Thursday for her birthday?????
I am itching to make myself the Bombshell sweater in BGK. I still can't bring myself to buy any more yarn though. And making a sweater for someone my size is not a small proposition.
Most of the other things are Christmas knitting:
A smoke ring hood for _____ out of some grey/black merino roving that still needs to be spun.
Doggie sweaters with matching hats for 2 different families (thats 5 hats and 2 small dog sweaters). They had it in the latest Knitpicks catalog. Don't know about doing the fair isle though. I could get the same effect with something simpler.
I still want to knit stockings for dh and I. I knit one for Nicole last year, which I don't really like but she will deal with it. I have been on the search for the perfect stocking, and I think I may have come close with one I found in Spinners.
I had a great idea to make moebius scarves afters seeing them on knitpicks. Wouldn't it be a great gift to get a simple solid turle neck (probably a scoop neck would work better) with matching moebius scarves out of homespun?
I probably have about 12 pairs of sock yarn waiting to become socks. I think those will be my filler projects. Whoever I can knit a pair for will get them for Christmas.
Nicole got something off her needles though>
I'm so proud of her!
