I'll start with my spinning class and work on from there.
Here we see the Schacht Ladybug spinning wheel I am renting from the yarn store all ready for it's trip to my second class:
The class was fun and really helpful, even though I wanted nothing better than to be at home in my recliner while I was there. Here's a picture of my first skein of yarn:
It ended up on the super bulky side--all 29 yards of it. If I can reproduce the weight, I'll be making a hat with this. It's really squooshy yarn, made with Northern Lights 100% wool pencil roving in the Forest Glade colorway. I'm still working on the laceweight stuff on my spindle. It's a long work in progress, but it is going to be really pretty yarn. I did have a smackdown spindle spinning challenge from the woman who was teaching the spinning class which I declined. I was too sick to enjoy it.
Moving right along, here are some scenes from last night's Knit Night:
Here's Vicki hiding behind a wheel of unspun roving that she is making a gorgeous sweater out of. (You can see it on her lap)
Here's a really good shot of Vicki's Lloie cardigan. It's so pretty.
Margaret brought festive Halloween decorations with her!
Our discussion was interesting last night at Knit Night. It included tales of a Hanukkah driedel drinking game.
I finished my shawl last week:
I need to take a better picture of this. It did turn out pretty. I will admit that I was tired of it by the end.
I have moved on to socks now.
These are pumpkin socks. The pattern is Little Pumpkins socks.
The pattern is pretty cute. Paulette and I are having an unintentional knit along on this pattern. We didn't plan it, honest.
I leave you now with a pretty picture of our dogwood bush in the backyard in all it's fall finery:
