I love Shetland for shawls. It has just enough halo to looks soft, yet has gorgeous stitch definition and blocks beautifully! Look at this edging:

Wound up this skein of Madelinetosh Merino Lite yesterday and started a little eyelet yoke baby cardigan:

The colorway is “Molly Ringwald”…doesn’t get much more girly than that, eh?

I am off to a legal seminar for the next few days. No spinning, but plenty of knitting time.

But I am blogging. Heh.

Things have been a bit hectic, we were in Asheville NC last weekend for a legal seminar and kids are shuffling for spring break.  My Mother in law arrives today which brought about a flurry of spring cleaning. 

In the meantime, I am still slogging away on the baby blanket Girasole. I love, love, love the pattern & the gorgeous JulieSpins merino I have spun up to knit with.  Unfortunately, I ran out of yarn-yep-I actually started knitting before I finished spinning. Huge mistake.  But more fiber is jetting towards me as I write this, so all works out in the end. Even for schmucks like  me who do silly things. I would post some in-progress photos but it is a circular blanket & it just looks weird on the needles.

I did so many laceweight yarns that I was jonesing for some fat smooshy spinning.  So I finished these two over the weekend:

FreckleFace Fibers Merino in Mountaintop-150 yards

Rambouillet dyed by me "Dusky Pansies" 200 yards fat worsted

I also cast on for a little short-sleeved cardigan from the new Knitty using the JulieSpins Autumn Glory BFL I spun up for Ravelmpics.  It is color progression yarn & I started the yoke with the lighter skein. Now that I am knitting it I think I probably should have started with the darker skeins then fade to lighter towards the waist, but eh…who knows. Progress pics on that soon.

I started spinning the March Funky Carolina fiber last night. It is merino/bamboo/silk and it is quite luscious. I am thinking a plied laceweight.

A before picture of the merino/bamboo/silk yumminess!
