In other news, well I finished an afghan I made, pics to follow, I also did some socks, and am still working on those @#^$@ sleeves!! I am just about done with the sleeves and then just to sew them in and done!! I should finish them tonight yeah!!!! I figured out how to put pics in my Ravelry notebook and did a few there. So when I am done with the stupid sleeves I will post my picture of my sweater and my other stuff too.
Hubby has been away in Florida since Thursday so I got LOTS of knitting, crocheting and spinning in these past few days. I must say its been strange not having him around here, to quiet. So I am off to meet the ladies from the Ravelry knit up group. Till next time, have fun!!

The pictures are thumbnails and clickable for a closer look.
The pastel multi color is some pencil roving I bought from http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=110802 Its called tropical skittles and I love it. Spun up like a dream, its now plied and on the bobbin setting. The other is a merino tencel firestar batt called sultry shadows. That is just to pretty. It is plied on this bobbin and as of now its twist was set and its drying. So I will be posting pics of that soon too. By the way that was also from http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=110802. Tracey has the best stuff!!! I am also just about done with a sweater I am making for either me or my son, not sure whose getting it yet. I started the sleeves today, I hate doing sleeves, they are just so boring!!
Oh, on Sun I went to Paneras to a knitting get together. It was great, the gals are terrific. Everyone had some great projects both knit and crochet. I learned a few things and saw a great hat pattern. I cant wait to try that, its the Greenery hat from http://www.ravelry.com/tour/video/preview. Jen from Ravelry http://knitterism.blogspot.com/ was working on that hat in the most wonderful red. I was immediately taken with it. So she told me where she got the pattern and it was an easy and great pattern. That's next on my list, thanks Jen. I also met Lisa, who is ..http://www.tsocktsarina.com/. I must say she is quite incredible, her patterns are something else. But all the ladies are very talented and nice!! I am really looking forward to going again and seeing what everyone is up to. I get so many ideas from there. And I learned a new cast on from Helen http://golden-apples.blogspot.com/. I forgot the name of it but its really cool. Thanks Helen, she is an incredible knitter!!! I am going again this Sun and bringing my wheel. I figure I can get some spinning in. I must say its nice to get together with people who understand my obsession and don't think I am odd.
Today the weather here was 63 degrees!! For Jan that is unbelievable. So I went into my new sun room, just about done, and spun!! It was wonderful, the sun was shinning and the breeze was warm and just perfect. After spinning for a bit I just sat in there and knitted. I cant wait for this to be done. I am looking forward to just hanging out there all spring and summer.
So anyway that's about it for now. I have pics of my lady Eleanore and a handspun vest I did. I will post those another day. Just a spinning update for now. So happy crafting all!!!

My spinning has been coming out nicely and I even made a vest for myself from my hand spun yarn. I promise to take pics this week and update my blog. I finished quite a few projects. So anyway the holidays were great but I am glad they are done, now back to normal. I am off to work soon but really just wanted to let everyone know, yes I am still alive and well.
I also joined Ravelry and am getting used to that. That board was way to overwhelming at first. But after a bit you can figure it all out. There is nothing you cant find on there!!
So hope everyone has a great New Year and I will be posting more regularly, a new years resloution. So till next time happy knitting, crocheting, spinning or whatever it is you do!!
