Here Fishie Fishie.....

The Fishie Socks are done!

The double decreases along the top of the shell pattern made them to tight for me, but they did fit Mortal, so they'll be a Christmas present for her.

I did give her the option of having them now -- if she gave me replacement yarn. She didn't go for that.

I also spun up some milk fiber I got on etsy from knittyandcolor
It was interesting to spin. It tended to break more easily. I ended up with 94 yards of light fingering.

This and that, again

The HAED progresses. Page 1 is basically done and progress has been made on page 2. Total number of chart pages? 36

I fixed the Cloning Anemone socks (ravelry) that my father put a hole in. That'll be his Father's Day gift. That took a while.

The shawl for the cancer benefit is blocking at this time. I should have the ends woven in by the weekend.

I made some truffles last week and I need to make some more.

Camp is this week. I am not looking forward to it.

This & That

I cannot believe it is June already. Is anyone else having that problem?

Update from May:
  1. I got 2 of the fibers from MDSW spun and plied. I even set twist! They're drying in the bathroom now. Haven't figured out what to make with them, but that will come.
  2. I did 2 squares for a baby blanket, crocheted no less.
  3. The Daisies were in the Memorial Day parade. There were no major calamities. The horse in front of us had a bag.
  4. I got the fabric partially gridded for the HAED, and started. This is going to take a while.
  5. I finished 1 fishie tsock and sent down with the 'rents for Mortal to try on.
  6. The bumblebee socks have been finished and gifted to Mother. Note to self, need to get a picture.
  7. I decided on a pattern and yarn to make a shawlette for the cancer benefit in July.
  8. I got internet from the cable company and the computer was acting weird, so Tiger has it now.
  9. There was a spider and web inside my computer.
  10. I fixed the glitch in the center of my fountain pen shawl. It turned out really large.
