Bambi and friends...

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

Ok not Bambi but more deer pictures. They were so cute today I couldn't resist. These two are likely siblings. The little one was born this year and the other last year. Often the momma is not far behind, I didn't see her there but I'm sure she was around.Here is what I have spun up from the Cornucopia roving so far. It's gorgeous and fairly nice to spin. It's really soft. I don't know if I like it so much as the bfl, but it's smoother. Then again I like the crimp the bfl often has.
Obviously the colors are a bit off. When I get a full bobbin I'll take pictures during the day to show off the real tones.
I've gotten pretty far on my Marilinda socks. I am to the heel finally! Here's a picture of the length. These are longer than I would normally knit a leg, but I think it's fine.
And here is another picture. I stretched the sock over the foot of my sock blocker to show off the pattern. Isn't it pretty??? I like it so far.Lastly here is a picture of my princess mitt in progress. It's Bernat Cashmere natural blends, which I picked up at Michaels when I got the yarn for my MIL's princess mitts. It matched my coat, so I figured, why not? I really love this pattern though, I think I'll make another pair after this too. This is at the end of the thumb gusset, where I'm about to put those stitches on waste yarn. It's such a fast knit. I can't wait to finish.Well those are my pictures for today. I'm off to bed, I've got work early.

Beautiful deer! I love how the Marlinda sock is coming along. I really want to start one now, but hey! I started your test-knitting project! :-)
