Another catch up

Well, I went to work for a little OT this morning and stopped at my LYS - Needle on the Square on the way home. After getting lovlingly chastised by not one but two employees - cough Mary cough cough Becky cough - I thought I should give you a little update on what I've been doing.

I haven't been knitting. My poor Marvelous Mitts have sat almost neglected - although they did go to our Knit Night Christmas party for a "coming out" show.

I spun this:

It's nice gray wool from some of the sheep at the Farm where I got my wheel (still unnamed BTW).

And I spun this:

It's Goblin Eyes from Spunky Eclectic's Fiber Club (October. Received the DAY I shipped the old wheel off to it's new home). I know dimes and quarters seem to be the norm when showing off singles but a nickle was all I could dig up out of my change pocket.

However, after I go try my hand at washing a fleece, I'm going to get back to knitting on my mitts. And this:

It's part of a top secret project (that you're not supposed to tell anyone about Mary and Becky!) that I got at NOTS today. The other part I have here already. I'm aiming on it being done by Christmas (stop that mad laughing!) but if not then it's OK.

Now, I must go get all stinky and greasy before our company Christmas party this evening... (can we extend the holidays for like another month so I don't have so much crammed into such a short time period??)

That's some really pretty spinning!
hee, stinky and greasy....

Yeah... I'd be all for extending the holidays another month but I'm not sure it'd really help me that much... but for you? I'll wish extra hard! :^)

Very pretty Nikki..looks like some great spinning you have there.
OH..can we just cancel the holidays this year?..would suit me perfectly and then I'd have a running start on next year.
Be safe and Happy Knitting and Spinning~~

I've been trying to work out the colours that are inside that intriguing paper bag - I bet your cat would tell me!

Lovely spinning Nikki! Your secret project sounds very intriguing.

How did the stinky/greasy Christmas party go? LOL
