A few new things in the shop, some of them I've had for a while, but just haven't had the daylight to photograph them:
The fingerless gloves are a new idea, they are made with 2 different yarns giving them a two toned effect. I think they turned out kind of neat and love how I can use up smaller amounts of yarn this way.
I also dyed & spun some new yarn this weekend, did a bit more experimenting with drum carding, and continued making gifts. I also found a new obsession: cable knitting. I finally made a (cabled) hat for myself with some chunky yarn and I am so proud of it!! I finished it over the course of 2 days and its my new favorite thing to wear! I am hoping to make a matching cabled neckwarmer too... I will have to get a picture soon. I think I like working better with chunky yarn and bigger needles than I do the really tiny stuff (as much as I adore it, my eyes don't seem to appreciate it as much).
I also sent off a couple of hats and a scarf to a fellow team member on the Alberta team who is putting together a care package for a family near Calgary who lost their house to a fire. I hope we can cheer them up with some handmade goodies.
