Quickie Weekend Review

I've got so much I wanted to blog about from this weekend, but I really don't have time! So, I'm just going to hit the highlights, with pictures!

I went on a knitting frenzy! In addition to the Southwest Winter and Lil Sistah scarves, I also knit two more out of "leftover" yarn wench yarns! I also finished a summer triangle shawl knit with Gedifra Poesie, and started two more projects. I spun up two yarns (well, four skeins, two colorways). One of them is a new kitty yarn! Okay, so here are some pics:

Lil Sistah (aka Rainbow Sherbert Colada):

The two "rainbow" scarves from remainder yarns:

"Wild Night" handspun yarns from handdyed domestic wool from the Yarn Wench and plied with Moda Dea Frivolous:
What my couch looked like on Sunday, as I got fiber prepped and some new knitting projects started:

Then, even though I didn't think I *would* spin anything on Sunday, I got inspired and put together these materials:

And, spun up 250 yards of art yarn! The first skein has Hello Kitty beads strung on the thread that I plied with, and the other doesn't have the beads. Only have "in process" pictures, but I absolutely LOVE how this turned out!

And, the bead-less skein:
Now, back to work!

thank you!

i love doing the kitty yarns but they do take awhile as spinning all the extras means more stopping/slower spinning. but the end result IS worth it! :)
