So what have I been up to, you might be wondering since I haven't posted in a while. Well, I've been up to my eyeballs in fleece. Remember the fleece I picked up at the Sheep and Fiber Festival? Yeah, I think it grew exponentially after washing, and I still have 1/3 of it left to wash!
So, I've been flick carding the washed locks. I've done about a third and have the other third left to card. So, it's boring by blogging standards.
I have also been knitting some. I have been working on the Corrie Fair Isle Vest from Knit Picks, but I haven't had much time to devote to the colorwork. I do adore the patterning on this vest though and I'll get some pictures of it here soon.
I have also been working on a pair of socks. Just plain vanilla socks, but they travel well, which is what I was wanting. I've been putting in quite a bit of overtime at work again, so by the time I get home, I rarely feel like doing much of anything aside from fixing dinner (tonight was baby zuchinni, garlic, and briesling stir fry, and it was yummy), so I try to knit a little bit at lunch when I get the chance. Today there was no knitting at lunch since I had to take a shorter one because of prepping for a presentation this afternoon.
But tonight, you guessed it, there was flicking.
Flick on..., er, I mean knit on...
