It's 4 am...

It's 4 am, and I'm still up. No worries, as it's the night before my shifts start, so I always stay up late. I've been working on some computer work for a rubber stamp company, and working on my spinning class homework while I'm waiting for things to save.

I'm hand carding the different fibers we got to play with. I'll be spinning them up and navajo plying some, and saving the others for class. I even got to play with a drum carder!! Now I think I know what I'm going to get myself for Christmas! :)

A few project updates. Here's a few of the things I want to knit for the holiday festivities.

The ribbon scarf from Handknit Holidays using a hot pink (!!!) Rowan Kidsilk Haze. Will look great with my black coat.

Also from Handknit Holidays, these legwarmers. When I went to the shop, I had only written down the name and color numbers of the different colors called for in the pattern. Well, the Weaving Works didn't have a single color called for in the pattern!

So I went with these... It's either going to be really good, or really bad... Sorry for all the flash pictures, but there's no natural light at 4 am!

And you know as soon as I finished Ivy, I casted on for this:

My Lucy in the Sky Cardi! Now, why does it seem that when you knit things in pieces, it seems to go faster. I swear I've been working on this forever, but all I've got is about 4 inches of work! I'm trying to get a ball a day done. We'll see how I'll be able to keep up with that goal.

Woohoo girlie! You have been quite busy and on a roll. I'm so proud of all the stuff you have done. WOW!

I have to get myself in gear so that I can unpack and not feel guilty about knitting. Of course, I say that after being on the computer for an hour! Yikes!
