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.
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.
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.
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.
