FO and other things

Wow, I just realized that checked out of blogging for a week. Well while I wasn't here, there has been some knitting going on at Chez ME

The Knitters Bowl in PS colors jumped on the needles then off again and...

Landed in the washer. It felted wonderfully and is basking in the afternoon (just barely) sun light.

Pattern: Knitter's Bowl by Cat Bordhi from A Second Treasury of Magical Knitting
Yarn: Cascade 220, not exactly sure what the colors were but they were hanging on the wall.
Needles: Denise #10 & 11 condo style for the mobius and most of the bowl, #11 for the pockets and the base of the bowl.
Alterations: None, well at least none that I consciously made.

OTN is My So Called Scarf in Malabrigo, surprisingly I'm really liking the pink, and I don't do pink.
A repeate peformer is OTN, this is the same sweater I did for Dad, but I'm staggering the cross for DH, he requested white, I'm about 1/3rd up the back.
On the spinning front. I'm in a plying black hole, this is 50%merino/50% tussah silk. It's only a total of 12 oz, 4 oz of 3 different colors, but I spun it so fine it's taking forever to ply it. Once it's done, I'm going to ply it back on itself, my first venture into cabled yarn. I'll finish this yarn some day, I'm on day 3 of trying to ply it the first time.

You've been a busy, busy knittinspinninfeltin bee! It's great to see your WIPs and FOs...and that handspun. Oooh baby.

Way to go with the PS love....

Great work--as usual! I guess the thing about spinning is that you get to appreciate the work that goes into making the yarn, huh? I am quite content to appreciate vicariously, though, through your efforts!
