Progress has been very slow on the fiber front, but here's what I've been up to.
The secret knitting: a pair of ankle socks. It's proving difficult to find secret time to work on these. Plus I have hit a stand still until I can somehow measure someone's foot without raising suspicions.
Inspired by these socks over at The Purl Bee
The shawl: The lace I finished and shared a few weeks back...it's really a pillowcase edging but done in worsted cotton. The part I'm on now is just a simple crochet back and forth (the only crochet I have learned thus far). Progress is slow on this one because I have to really watch what I'm doing (#newbie) so I don't dare pull it out in my usual knitting time ---Downton Abbey and such, but it is coming along. I need it for late April and I think I can do it. I *know* I can do it.
On the spinning wheel: Some very minor progress on the spinning. I purchased an Alpaca, Merino, Bamboo blend from Alpaca Avenue the last time I was in Toronto and progress was slow because I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Now that I have a project picked out, I think I'll get to it more often.
On the bookshelf: I'm reading Charles Dickens' ThePickwick Papers. I'm pretty sure it is the only Dickens I haven't read yet. I usually love his books, but I can't seem to really get into this one. Granted I'm only on page 40 or so, and I'm only reading 5 minutes here and 10 minutes there, so it's not really getting a fair chance.
In the shop: If you haven't seen it yet, I'm one of the March sponsors at Frontier Dreams.
