WIP Wednesday – July 23

I’ve cast on the yarn I dyed & spun earlier this year. I’m kind of just winging it for now to see what happens. I’ve got an idea in my head but I’m not quite sure it’s going to work out.

This is not quite a WIP just yet, but I’m going to spin this roving from Miss Babs as my next spinning project. It’s called Shoot and is 100% BFL. I’ve had this roving in my stash for at least 4 years, maybe more. I’m planning to spin it up fingering weight(ish) and knit a shawl with it since it is a monochrome color.

No quilt update this week; I was feverishly knitting all week. You’ll see why on Friday!

Friday – Finished Project – July 18

A couple of weeks ago, a super awesome lady requested that I make a book for her. I hope she’s as much in love with it as I am. By the way, this super awesome lady makes some pretty tasty tea: check her teas out over at Rare Meadow Tea.

The Midnight yarn is finished! This roving came from Spun Right Round and is merino. I absolutely loved spinning this; it is so soft! I have no idea what I’m going to make with it yet so for now I’ll just hug it and squeeze it (and call it George).

Fursday – Sinatra the Library Cat

Cats and Books go hand in hand. This fabulous ball of fluff is my boss at the library. Oh sure, I’m technically labeled a “circulation specialist” but we all know that the library is just a front and we’re there to do Sinatra’s bidding. Being in a beautiful old Victorian house full of books is just one of the perks of being one of Sinatra’s minions. Clearly his job is very demanding which is why he’s sleeping on the circulation desk. He even snores sometimes.

WIP Wednesday – July 16

Well…. I went a little quilt crazy this week.

A new row on this section and 27 sets of two stitched together.

What is not in this picture is the 30+ octagons I basted, the big stack of squares I cut, or the 4-5 dozen templates I cut out. I also bought six more fabrics to go with this quilt.

Quilt crazy indeed!

I’m also up to 32 points on the Hitchhiker – Only 10 more to go!
