Fiber Arts Friday: Fiber ADD

I think this Fiber ADD is catching... I worked a on a couple of projects, started one, finished another and added three more to my to do list.

Wonder Roving:

I finished spinning the Wonder Roving (70% Suri Alpaca, 30% Merino).  I was originally thinking about using this with the Huacaya Alpaca I spun during the Tour de Fleece in a yet to be fully defined weaving.  However, I had a flash of brilliance and decided I want to use this yarn in a small project for someone I love.  So I Navajo-plied it to get a larger gauge and added it to the long list of projects I want to do.

Plumber Sweater:

I desperately wanted to finish the body of this sweater before this post, but I still have about a half-inch to go.  Once the body is done, I can start the sleeves, which will be easy to take on my trips to MSP.

BFF Hat:

I've made some progress since I cast on a couple of weeks ago.

This is a 4-stitch basket weave pattern and will take a while to finish using the #2 needles.  I think once I finish the body of the Plumber Sweater, I will be able to focus more on this project.

Boy Beanie:

When I showed the Two Hats for Twin Girls to Hubba last week, he said "Great, but what about the brother?" 

Ugh.... Yes, I know.  Gifts should be given to each of the siblings.  So, I'm about 75% complete with a cotton London Beanie for the 3 year old brother.  I think he'll like this one, because Hubba has the exact same hat in a much larger size.

As for my growing list, I think it's time I write them all down.  It's getting a little long to keep straight in my brain.

Please take some time and visit the other Fiber Arts Friday posts over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.  In the meantime, I promise to replace my camera.  The view screen went out last weekend, so these photos are courtesy of my phone.

Love your projects. Makes me inspired to get off my tush and photograph mine and post them. My poor little blog has been neglected, because of the one I do for the newspaper.
Have a great weekend!

Can't wait to see that BFF hat finished. Looks like it will be awesome! Have a great holiday weekend.

That will be one toasty and well-loved plumber! Are you in the black hole of knitting? Hate that. Everything looks beautiful!

Great group of projects! Glad to see someone else caught Fiber ADD too.

All of your projects are amazing even in their unfinished state. Looking forward to seeing the FO.

You're such a busy knitter!

And on a knitting note--I just joined Ravelry and added you as a friend. I'm puellalamaman :).
