Incoming!!

October 9, 2008

I’ve decided that I really miss having a kitty around, so I’m in the process of adopting a pair of kittens from the Kalamazoo Animal Rescue.  They’re the cutest little things and I can’t wait for them to get their little man bits disabled so they can come home with me!!  I wish I could show you some pictures now, but both are still with their foster families, but very soon I will share the cuteness!!

Since I don’t really have any good knitting pictures, I’ll show some spinning pics and then update my knitting projects.  Here’s what I did with the other batch of roving I got from the Michigan Fiber Fest when I bought my learn to spin kit.  It’s going to become a teapot cozy for my grandma’s 80th b-day.

Since I was having so much fun spinning, I bought some more roving from etsy seller Freckle Face Fibers.  The stuff is soft and easy to work with.  I’ve only spun about 1/4 of it (about 1 oz.), but I love how it’s turning out.  This bit of it will be used to make a present for a swap partner. 

My current knitting projects include finishing up my Monkey socks (just closing up the 2nd toe), starting the finishing on my Estes vest, finding more yarn and finishing my Snakey scarf (not sure the exact name of the pattern, but it’s a 1×1 rib knit in a modular fashion.  Very cool.  I’m also knitting a Christmas stocking for the October sockdown that the Ravelry group Sock Knitters Anonymous sponsors.  Every month the challenge is different and when you complete the challenge, you’re entered into a drawing for prizes.  Super cool!!

Well, that’s all for now.  I’ll be back soon with pictures of my new kittens and my knitting projects!!  Bye!
