On Saturday I KIPed with Chris, Jen and Karen at Angelfire Studios. There was a decent turn out of knitters and Karen brought her little guy. Chunky was in seventh heaven to have someone around his own age around so he didn't have to associate with us knitters. We got there at 12 and I didn't hear "I'm bored!" until 3:00. Not bad!

I didn't get any pictures, but I worked on my Lily Cardigan. I finished up one sleeve and started the other.


Doesn't look like much but I love the way it's fitting. I'm not loving the way the picot bind off on the one sleeve folded right over on itself. I hope that will block out.

Sunday Dr. Mad Scientist took off for the city for some AA Hootenanny at the Hilton. He had a good time.

I took this:


and spun it into this:


I lost control in a few spots (more than I'd like to admit) and it's got those fatter sections. But overall it's not bad. I love the color--"smoke."

This Falkland fluff was a gift straight from Geddesburg. You wanna see some real handspining? Check out her blog on handspun yarn porn Fridays!

I like the colors of the yarn you spun. I tried some yesterday but the fluff kept sticking to my skin. I have two bags of alpace fuzz that I am not quite sure how to handle yet but boy are they soft.

Pretty handspun, I like those colors. Sounds like Chunky has a new buddy when the mom's knit :)
