Not Blogging But Knitting

and kinda drowning in knitting.
I am feeling a little stressed by the xmas knitting and really needed to get it in hand.
I finished up Juliet for my oldest niece, here it is all ready to be blocked and to find nice buttons for it.

I also finished up another boy hat, this was taken by the birthday boy, so no strike off the xmas list!

I managed a tiny bit of spinning, this is months fibre club, called goblins eyes.

I spun it as fine as I could and it is 108m of navajo plied.
Not sure what I will do with it but I kinda like it.

And finally I sewed together the baby jumper

With sparkly buttons

Saturday I am off to the boys old school to help with their sewing for a fundraiser, we are making fleecy hats and scarves.

I am off on Sunday to spin with a couple of french spinners, I think we are going to do some dyeing too, so am looking forward to that, you will see the results next week.
Have a good weekend....tchao

so many things done and all so gorgeous. I love the spinning too and am always amazed at how painted fiber the isn't all that pretty to my eyes can be so devastingly gorgeous when spun up
