I am happy to announce that while my spinning and knitting lately have not been very speedy, they have been fairly steady. I made a good bit of progress on my Tour de Fleece spinning, 4 oz of the BFL gradient kit I’m working up have been spun into singles and I’m ready to start the second half of the kit later tonight.

With all my home time taken up with spinning, my knitting has been fairly monogamous. I’ve only really been working on my travel knitting (sock) and meeting knitting (shawl).

I’m still slowly striping my way through the Tour-de-Sock pattern from the last round. I was nearly finished with it last week but started the band of colorwork on the foot too late so it was all the way down near the toe and I hated it, so I frogged back. Nothing like making the sock foot slog last twice as long! It was worth it, though.

My sweet and spring-y Budding Lintilla shawl is nearing its end. That little ball on the left is the last of the original skein. I will continue through the end of it then use the additional leftovers that a couple of lovely Ravelers sent me to work the edging of the shawl. I’m excited to see how this will turn out!
Finally, I just wanted to say that I apologize for not being around to comment much lately. I’m working on transferring my blog from blogger to WordPress as I dislike the changes blogger has been making and I want a fresh start. Much of my limited inside-time has been and will be spent on setting up the new blog for a little bit. I hope you’ll come visit me at my new place when it’s ready!
