Just back from a glorious trip to my home state where I got to hang with my bro and sister-in-law - SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) - for most of the weekend. Super fun. Sushi and wine.
Glad I'll get to see them again in about a month when La Familia visits nuttncasa (aka the Nutt House) for Thanksgiving!
Knit this pair of Fetching for him.
Needles: US 6 DPN
Yarn: Lavish Bulky 100% Superfine AlpacaDuration: 2 days
This yarn was a gift from 10% and I was happy to transform and return. Every once in a while he'll call to say "Hey, the Alpaca Fairy left a package for you."
I love my brother!
**and not just b/c he gives great presents**

Another Herringbone Scarf. This from the Treat Merino I spun from the Hello Yarn Fiber. Lovely stuff.
Destined as a gift for my office United Way Campaign drawing. Next time I knit one of these I'm slipping the first stitch on each row for a nicer edge.
Enrolled in the next batch of Hello Yarn Fiber Club. I'm greedy so I supersized. Open enrollment starts today. You know you want to.
Loving those color progressions.
Another gift from 10%. Man - I'm spoiled.
Dyed silk. NOT dachshund hair - as I first imagined based on the enclosed card announcing the sale of "Home Raised" longhaired miniature dachshunds (as opposed to Factory Farmed, I guess). My disappointment tempered only by the beauty of this fiber.
As soon as my bobbins are cleared of their current contents I'll spin this. Never spun silk before and really looking forward to trying it. May be a good opportunity to try Navajo Plying.
Had a bunch of the Colinette Jitterbug left over so made another pair of Mini Mitts.
Score another point for the Fingerless Mitts for Fall KAL.
