I got married! I wore this:

Clothilde Wedding Shawl

Clothilde Wedding Shawl

Clothilde, by Kristen Hanley Cardozo, knit in hand dyed (by me) Fiesta Yarns Baby Boom, originally a light gray.

It was beautiful and perfect. (The wedding, not just the shawl!)

Before all of that, I knit another shawl:

Handspun Prairie Rose Shawl

Handspun Prairie Rose Shawl

Prairie Rose Lace Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark, knit out of handspun merino/tencel yarn.

My current big project is a whole bunch of spinning:

Tour de Fleece spinning project.

Tour de Fleece spinning project.

I'm spinning 20 2 oz. skeins of 2 ply, from 2 almost solid wool blend samplers from Spunky Eclectic. I've been wanting to knit a colorful log cabin blanket for a while, and this seemed like a good way to do it. I'll spin up all the yarn, and then decide which colors I want to use, and where. You know me. You can be sure that there will be math and graph paper involved. It will be fun!

I have other exciting things going on, too, but I'll wait until they're in a better shape for photos before I share. For example, I have one awesome handspun sweater that is about 2" of collar, a good blocking, and 7 or 8 buttons away from being done. I could finish it this afternoon, but it's 80 degrees out, and my spinning wheel is calling to me.

Congratulations! I only know you from Ravelry (Hello Yarn's corner) -- but YAY for your marriage, and your lovely shawl, and your planned spinning. (Biggest yay for the biggest project -- marriage is a lot to bite off!)

Cheers! -- Rose/yarnivore

Wishing you a joyful life together!!
I've really got the spinning bug myself lately. I don't think I'd be able to keep my hands off that pile of 2oz samples either.
