First Christmas Finish!

This Honey Cowl has been on the needles for more than a year. I can't believe it's finally finished! 

I'm not sure, but I think I like the "wrong" side...

...better than the "right" side. 

Time to move on to the next project!

Temps here are dropping again. Looking like a low of 14*F. 

Stay cozy!

November's Loose Ends

I had planned to take some photos while at our meeting on Saturday, but...
A) I was running late. 
B) My Ashford Traveller was not behaving properly. 
C) I was too excited about spending time with my girls. 
D) I found out that one of the ladies does ancestor regressions & hypnosis. 

It was quite an interesting day. I did manage to finish spinning the mix of brown & raspberry coopworth. Sash has a jumbo flyer & bobbin and she plied the 2 strands for me. 

I think I've got about 130 yards. Not bad.

The "oldest" has indicated that she isn't interested, so I may try to sell it...if I can part with it. But, Christmas is coming and we'll see what happens. 

I'm off to finish a UFO. (I need the needles to start another Christmas gift.)

It's been a very productive day. Thing 1 & Thing 2 had a full day of lessons that moved along rather quickly. Thing 1 has been elected to be club reporter for his 4-H club & turned in his very first article & photo to the local paper. He's really excited to be "published"!

Hubs & I found an excellent addition to our vintage movie collection. $5 for Ghostbusters!

On Tuesday, I was trying to get my Heat Wave socks started.  

I didn't like the striping & decided to switch over to the November Mystery sock. It's coming along nicely. 

Tomorrow is our LEFA (Loose Ends Fiber Addicts) meeting. We get to go to Tygart Lake Lodge...a special treat due to an overbooking at our regular meeting place. I plan to finish spinning the grey-brown wool with raspberry coopworth & ply them on a friend's wheel that has much larger bobbins. 

I'd like to get this finished & prepped for a Christmas gift for my oldest daughter. 

Hopefully I'll get some good photos tomorrow. In the mean time, keep on spinning, knitting, quilting, etc.
