Tour de Fleece Wrap Up

Right Around, Baby
Well, Tour de Fleece ended on Sunday, and I was kind of sad... I would have liked to have one more week.  I almost made my goal, I had one 4oz braid and one 1oz batt left to spin that I had bought specifically for TdF, but I did spin 20oz that I hadn't planned on spinning... I guess, overall, I got a lot done!

I'm not sure what any of the yarn is going to become.. I'm thinking the brown skein might become mittens, as it is a baby alpaca/silk blend which is very cozy and super warm.  Other than that, I don't know.  I still have to measure some of the yarn and do some pattern searching. 

Sticks and String
Friday starts the kick-off of the Ravellenic Games (formally the Ravelmpics, but that is a whole other story... one that kind of made the internet light on fire, so I'm sure with some google searching you could find a few stories on it)! My plan is to knit matching hats for Sawyer and Baby. If there is time after that, I will hopefully finish up some lingering WIPs. I have a lot of things on the needles right now that are begging for my attention... a hat for Weston, Baby's coming home outfit (have to rip back a bit, so I'm dragging my feet on that), a pair of colorwork mittens, a pair of thrummed mittens, Sawyer's birthday sweater, my handspun lace shawl (needs ripping back as well... my preggo brain apparently can't handle complicated knitting right now)... that might be it. I know there are some other things I want to get done as well, but who knows when I will get to them.  I have all the yarn to knit Sawyer three bears (a big white one, med brown one, and small black one) I was hoping to knit them and give him the book AK's Three Bears for his birthday, but that might get pushed back to Christmas at my current rate of finishing things. I also want to knit a pair of mitts to go with a hat I just finished for a friend. Man, I spend a lot of time planning knitting projects. Lucky for me, I have actually been knitting a fair amount lately, so I am getting things done, even if it is just a little bit on every project... progress is being made.
