Thing is my camera is still sans battery...the cord is still AWOL (in USA where i left it to be exact). I ordered one forever ago from kodak online store and am STILL waiting for it ...grumble grumble grumble...So for this week's WIP Wednesday...it's kind of dull sans photos...
I am working like crazy on my rust and navy tempest (the one that i talked about last post - remember, tony the tiger?)
I am about 80% done with the back of the sweater. And on the one hand, it's going pretty smoothly and i would say fairly quickly, effortlessly but...when i think ahead on how much is LEFT to do, i'm getting slightly intimidated a little worried (i kind of have the dreaded magpie syndrome crafters are often known for - "ooooh! pretty!" and off i go following the last thing that caught my attention and dropping the thing i was working on :^/ ). But this is so so so pretty and soft and lovely to work on that i might just be able to hold interest in it.
I am also trying to finish up a pair of socks out of Zwerger Garn Opal Antonia aus Tirol
I've also been spinning a bit. I bought 2 batts at the fiber fair i mentioned a couple of weeks back. One was reds with pretty much everything but the kitchen sink in it (all different types of wools, angelina, angora...) And the other was the same mix but in pretty pale blues.
The reds i picked out so i could spin it for a swap i'm doing. The swap is honoring the American Heart Association ‘Go Red for Women’ program, which promotes healthy living and education for the prevention of heart disease. We are to send one skein of red yarn plus other goodies plus make a donation to the AHA. I'm running very late on getting mine out because i'm having trouble getting my act together but mostly because i had this specially made yarn in mind for the yarn part of the swap and i have no other red yarn in my stash (unless i regift and that's not cool). And, well, said "art yarn" that i envisioned as being really cool and reminiscent of artherosclerosed arteries is ... fugly : P.
The blue batt that i spun up isnt faring much better. I have yet to ply it though - maybe i can salvage it. What they say is true though, quality in => quality out. These batts were not of as professional of a caliber as i'm used to spinning and while i thought the funkiness of the blend was artistic intent on the blenders behalf, while spinning, i realized it was more just a question of poorly processed fiber.
