Updated my Ravelry page with some recent projects, most notably Laura's Socks (made for my boyfriend's mom) and my Bethe scarf/shawlette.

I'm also in the process of going through my stash and trying to find projects for my existing yarns. I've frogged some old ones, browsed for some new ones, and am thinking of designing a couple of patterns soon.

I'm also going through my library and printing out copies of all the patterns I have and putting them in a binder (you know, for when the EMP happens ;) ). But really, I'm doing it because I prefer reading a pattern on paper to a screen, and I like them to be more mobile (not a fan of patterns on tablets/Kindle).

My latest spinning project:



I'm sooo pleased with how it turned out. I'll be making a little shawl with it.

Some older handspun that will soon be a hat for the BF:

Apple Festival Quilt

Apple Festival is a big deal in our little berg, the vendor fees and raffle returns go a long way toward town projects not covered by our pathetic little budget. Local businesses donate items for the raffle and this year I donated a custom quilt. The lady who won it was ecstatic, which of course made me feel pretty good.

It said "Australian wool" on the label. It was already dyed when I bought it, it actually turned out much better than I expected.

I love the socks you finished up... is it your own pattern (Laura's socks)? I'm getting ready for fall/winter knitting season :)

Nope, it's called "Ballet" from the book Toe-Up 2-at-a-time Socks. The pattern is simple enough that you could probably make it top-down without much fuss, though I highly recommend learning the toe-up technique if you haven't learned it already.

And I would also be ecstatic to get a quilt like that, LJH. Gorgeous!
