I’ve got so many things to do, and very many of them are crafty which makes me happy! Of course, there’s still that pesky exam next week, but…we won’t talk about that (don’t worry, I’ve got my schedule all set up and will be studying muchly – this exam’s worth 50%!).
I received a Global Priority Mail box! It contained some yummy fiber.
The white is a pound of Corriedale top which I’m planning to dye with Kool-aid when I have some time, and the light blue is Ingeo – corn fiber! It’s cooool, but I don’t want to mess it up so it’ll probably wait around for a little bit while I, you know, learn to spin better.
I also got this handpainted Wensleydale top.
As for the knitting, I seem to have been bitten by a bout of startitis. The Phildar Jacket looks like this…
But I’ve started these:
Soleil, out of the Madil All Seasons (I love lace!)…
…and a cardigan out of black Cotton-Ease (I love you Cotton-ease!). It’s a raglan with kangaroo pockets and – my favourite part – both a knit-in hem at the bottom and a facing for the zipper at the front edges.
So you can see I’ve got quite a few things to keep me busy – I’m also working on a springy skirt for myself, as well as bags to put up for sale. Also, I’m going to redesign and launch my own domain which will house the blog plus a little webshop – if anyone wants to offer their coding expertise, I would be ever so grateful! Oh, and I got a *great* deal on registering the domain, server space, etc. – less than $10 for a year! Email me if you’re interested in the deets.
