What have YOU been doing?

Me? I've been working on stringy things -- as usual!

I completed the mitts for S, using the Maine Morning Mitts pattern from The Knitter's Book of Yarn. I have some yarn left, so I'm going to make a hat also. I don't have enough of the pink, so I'll combine it with some white.

The May sock club shipment included a pattern that went from Baby Bootie to Adult. I did the booty size in some left over yarn. I think I'll be making a few more pairs....
I go some new fluffy stuff from Dragonfly Fibers on Etsy. It is 65% merino and 35% silk. I think it has a loverly sheen to it. I'm currently working on spinning it up. I divided it roughly in half and then divided each half into 16ths. Half of it has been spun into a fingering weight -- my first Navajo ply!

I went down to see Mortal on the 4th, she modeled the fishie socks for me. Then, she had the audacity to be annoyed that she couldn't keep them. She could have gotten them then, if she had bought me another skein of yarn from Holiday Yarns. She didn't want to, so they are a Christmas present.
I've been working on my HAED. I took a break to play with the merino/silk fluffiness. The closeup shot isn't that great.
