On being a fiberhog…

May was a terrible month for me and the stress sent me to the interwebs for some shopping therapy.

I’m hoping for a 3ply fingering weight. I’ve finished two of the plys and I’m not sure it’ll be as fine as I want, but it should work.

Dyeing

AwesomeSister was dyeing yarn for her epic blanket project and dyed some (more) fiber for me.

Knitting and Crochet

WIPs

1) Simple Cables socks
2013-06-04 5:24 PM

my cabled socks are going super slowly. I’m about to drop the side cable on the foot to make the sock end faster.

2) 2@at bed socks

2013-06-04 5:26 PM

I’m going to switch to one at a time, I just need these to be finished faster.

3) Summer sweater

2013-06-04 5:23 PM

heh, silly picture. I’ve finished both the fronts and the arms. I’m working on the back of the bodice and then it will look more like a sweater.

FOs

1) Kitsune Fox

Who doesn’t need a nine tailed fox?

2) iPad Pillow
Seriously silly until you start using it. I almost need a 2nd one for my living room. It is the most useful thing I’ve made this year.

2013-05-26 6:32 PM

and it works as a doll seat as well

3) Terribly Simple
My handspun shawl is finished! I love it and only wish it was cool enough to wear it. 😉
