I finished plying my London Fog, I love how soft the Falkland is so I decided to start working on more Falkland. I started spinning Fat Cat Knits Wayfarer colorway. With this fiber I'm working on increasing speed with this fiber so it's looking messy and inconsistent on the bobbin but I am telling myself that this will improve over time and the yarn will still be beautiful!

I wasn't going to open my latest order from Fat Cat Knits but just couldn't resist any longer! I'm so excited to dig in and start on this stash of fiber but I will restrain myself until I can complete plying my London Fog.
Progress! I went camping over the weekend but still managed to get in some spinning time. I've spun 4 ounces of London Fog and hope to ply it this evening. This will finish off my London Fog destined to be a Boneyard Shawl.

KAL with Zaynab and Jeanie
I am working on my first sweater. Jeanie and I recently took an Icelandic Sweater class at Yarn Branch. I wanted to learn Fair Isle techniques but even more exciting was the steeking we got to watch.
Bohus Inspired Hat
Raven Swirl Socks
I didn't finish the Knitting Olympics. I was disappointed but perhaps next year I will find something a little more mindless so I can watch the Olympics while knitting. They were a fun knit though and all I have left is to kitchner one sock.
Love the yarn, love the colors, the patterns is so-so. I don't think the pattern shows off how pretty this yarn really is.

I hoped to update my blog this weekend, I've been spinning, knitting and even dyeing yarn. Friday at the last minute I decided to participate in the Knitting Olympics / Ravelympics.

Since I've been spinning and practicing on all that beautiful natural colored Corridale and BFL I rewarded myself . I love fiber from Sunset Fiber and bought 2 pounds to dye and a couple of colorways. I also found a new fiber source on Etsy, Freckle Face Fibers. My next goal is to be productive and spin some yarn I will use.
