Wha's happenin?

I haven't 'finished' anything this week unfortunately. I did start some projects. Lol. Yeah, so like me. I joined my first KAL (knit along) for a mystery stole. We start in about a week. I'm excited about it and plan to use an eggplant lace weight cashmere for that. Ooh la la. I restarted and restarted Veste Everest from Interweave Fall '05 (I think?). The sizing options are very limited so I started the larger and it looked huge. So I frogged it and started the smaller size which looked anorexic to me. So I frogged it and started the larger size again. Oh so much fun... NOT!
In other news...

Lily's sweater is a blockin'. Lovely space board and blocking pins that Tim gifted me with. He loves me :). Sorry bout the sideways photo. Trying to blog before running out and blogger takes FOR-EVER to upload.

I have all of Bella's fiber spun into singles and now just need to ply the rest of it. Yeah for Bella!

I placed an order for some fiber and spindles a week or so ago and received this sample of wool. It was red, white, and blue fiber. Spun up a lot prettier than I thought it would. Might be enough to knit a hat with.

Here is my new beauty!!! Nhewyt's Dragon from Wooly Designs. Isn't it way too cool? I haven't spun anything with it yet, but did spin it a bit and it goes on and on and on and on...

This little cutie is a Greensleeves Loki spindle. Haven't spun with it either, but looks good enough to eat.

Here is some lovely new fiber! Robin Hood BFL and Summer Berries BFL from Spunky Hats. Can't wait to spin these up! However I joined a summer fiber exchange and may have to part with some of this. sniff sniff...

Last, but definitely, DEFINITELY, not least is a spindle rack that Tim made for me. I was so surprised when he gifted me with it! How awesome is that? It is his first larger project. Makes me want to cry... he's so thoughtful. My handmade spindle isn't on there.... yes that means I only have room for one more spindle. Will that stop me from buying more? Heck no! snicker :). Happy Fiber Day to us all! Woo hoo!
