It's been a while..

I could try to post about all the things I've done or made in the past few months since I last posted but I think I'll refrain from doing so.

In the most recent past I attended the Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat and took a class with Margret Radcliff, bought yarn, fiber and a new drop spindle from the vendors & knitted a bit. I've also bought a new car.. and plan on actually following through with the process to get myself a license.

Currently on the needles are: Pictures uploaded to Ravelry

Wool Peddlers shawl from Folk shawls - Using Bouton d'Oro Ksar in a lovely Ivory. Since I wont have enough of that yarn I will be doing the patterned portion in Queensland Kathmandu Aran and DK in a lovely tan/ivory tweed and a light blue tweed. I'll be double stranding them as the main yarn is bulky and these two together should come close to the same guage.

Socks made from Blue Moon Fiber Arts medium SOTR in Chickabiddy. I just have to finish the after-thought heels on both.

A top down raglan in Louet Gems Pearl, mostly green but the yoke was knit with the same yarn but dyed to give it a stained glass effect w/out having to actually use that many different yarns.

2 hats are also nearly done. They're basically just at the point where I need to do the crown decreases.

Anyhow... photos to be uploaded later.
