Catching Up

Ok, so this is going to be a fairly picture-heavy post as I catch up on what all I've been doing the past week. So without further blabbering, let me get to it.

First up, we have the finished Lumpy Bumpy scarf. It's lumpy, it's bumpy, and it's squishy soft:Sorry for the craptapulous pictures on here. I'm rushing to get this in, talk to DF, and get ready for my class tonight all before heading to work.
Next, I finished the first red sock last night and just have to graft the toe. I'll be doing that sometime this morning before work probably.And then last night at SnB (It was great seeing you guys again!), I started a pair of worsted weight bed socks for a friend of the family who has cancer. I didn't get too far, but worsted socks knit up so fast:And last, but not least, I have really enjoyed being back with my spinning wheel. Yesterday was one of the first times I've had some time to really sit down and spin, and I got through about 1.5 ounces of roving that has been in my stash for ages. This is Insubordiknit's Drunken Sunset:It started out rough, but now I'm getting a nice, even single and I love the colors. I'm going to use this as practice for navajo plying since I've yet to do that and I want to keep the colors in this roving together as much as possible.

There you have it! One week down, many more to come. I'll try to be a bit more consistent since I'm pretty well settled in now and will be working, studying, and knitting, all while seeing friends and family.

Knit on...
