UFO Resurrection: February 2007

Once again at the 11th hour .. well it's 8:30 pm so at the, what, 20th hour, well, umm ...

Let's just call February the month of the WIP. Last month's completed UFO, the Jacob spinning, is now firmly "WIP" with about 3 sessions on the needles, about 3-4 inches more of tote-dom added on.

The singles fair-isle arm warmers ... about 2 inches into #1. Arm #2 is going to be slip-stitch. I just can't hack fair-isle knitting. I can do it, I don't enjoy it! even with 2-handed 2-color knitting. Slip stitch knitting, though, now, that's a hoot!! So I get to research and plan out a pattern for arm warmer #2. That will be fun!

The superwash Merino from Madrona Fiber Arts Festival is all spun up (singles, sigh) and in the plying. Gorgeous bright-bright orange with some lightening from the whites.

I did at least "touch" two older UFO's -- the blue/tan sock yarn spinning got another hour of attention, and of 5 fleeces that are washed, two of them are now picked and ready to card.

A little beaded knitted bracelet is underway, a little over half done.

Onward into March! with 3 more days than February, my goal is to FINISH at least one of the things described in this post!

More photo shots of that day-glo orange yarn (it's done! yippee!) are here.

I love your wheel in this photo. What wheel is that?
And the cutest thing is the little one peeking in from the side.

It's a Betty Roberts wheel -- there's a Yahoo group for them (of course!), SpinningWheels_by_BettyRoberts.

And the cat is Cat, my husband's dog's cat ;-) Cat decided he "matched" the yarn and the wheel and ought to be in the picture.
