So we have a new camera--and hubby has taken it away on the last 2 weekends that he worked.
I have been knitting on Kelly's socks and doing some spinning.
It's the Spunky Club Fibre for September. Finn is the breed and the colourway is called "Acadia"
I spun it thin and it is destined to be socks!
I spun up some of my own hand-dyed Merino/Alpaca. This was my first dye and spin of this fibre and I liked it alot, although I found it a challenge to keep the singles from breakin and then letting the twist out while I was trying to make a join.
(umm apparently Blogger is doing that pictures must be sideways thing...can't fix it)
I called this roving "Because You are Greek" because even though I've never been there, I imagine the water to look that shade of turquoise.
Does it look Greek Sophie??
I also spun and knit up some gloves for Princess B. I told her I was going to make her some more mittens and she said "Yes, mittens, but y'know with fingers".
I modified an adult pattern I found here:
I'm not sure why the fingers look so pointy, but they fit and she is happy and I am happy.
Once I get the socks done, I will get on to some Christmas Knitting. No big plans for this year but I have some thoughts.
Halloween was fun!
We had a party at our Church--the Youth put on a party for the little ones for an hour, and then had a party of their own afterwards.
Little man as Spiderman and Hubby as Indiana Jones:
Princess B was a "Fairy Ballerina"
I went as Noah'a Ark. I pinned 10 pairs of little animal finger puppets all over a brown t-shirt and pants. I had a rainbow taped to a Knitting Needle that I held over my head.
We had fun and we all wore things we had around the house!
There was a doughnut eating contest where the kids had to eat doughnuts that were tied to strings and hung from the ceiling. Princess B did really well!
Little man just liked the doughnuts :)
That is all that is new and exciting around here.
My play continues, we are now at the 4-5 practices a week stage..
"The sun will come out, Tomorrow...."
