Well, since I've been MIA for a bit I should probably update what I've done lately:
I finished my MIL's scarf/stole/shawl thingy. I used 2 skeins of Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock yarn in Mulberry Spice and Sweet Clementine. (-2)
I was asked to weave a scarf for a friend after she'd seen one I'd done in the same yarn. Woven using Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock in New Moon Alice.
I spun this yarn and knit a Haruni:
Spun from 2 Sunshine Yarns SW Merino Rovings. Un-Birthday Party and Patronus. I spun these on the new lace flyer I got and ended up with around 880 yards of 2 ply fingering yarn. (-2 +1-.5 = +1/2)
Picture of the yarn preknitting:
I spun this yarn for a friend. Sunshine Yarns SW Merino in Blood Red, spun into a 2 ply sport weight 300 yards. She made this into a gorgeous shawl.
In June I finished:
Char's Birthday Boheme. Made with Sunshine Yarns Worsted in Ever After.
The pattern is written for sport weight, with sizes up to 18 months. I was able to modify using some tips from other project pages to make a 4t using worsted weight yarn. She is very happy with it. (Please don't pay any attention to the mess in the background! The kids' toybox was confiscated and redeposited in the middle of my office floor.) Buttons are by BlueManateeButtons on Etsy. (-2)
In June I also started 2 pairs of socks...brilliant me made each on a set of DPNs instead of my usual 2 at a time using magic loop knitting. So I have 1 of each.
Skew: Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock in Alice (WIP 1)
Rivendell: Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock in Forest Mist. (WIP 1)
And spun this yarn: Sunshine Yarns SW Merino, Potronus, 2 ply light fingering, 500 yards.
