La la la la

There's currently a huge fire up the canyon in Golden. It's also monster windy. This has made the power/internet in my house iffy. So since I couldn't do any homework last night due to lack of internet, I managed to craft. Woo hoo!

I know I mentioned National Crochet Month....I'm working on my Stella Shawl, but progress is slow. I'm also a little BLAH with the whole thing, but I think that may be due to the fact that I'm at the "chain five, attach, chain five, attach...." section of the thing. It's okay, I only have 8 rows of that left...But I might die before I finish it.

I finally (okay, about 20 minutes in) gave up, threw it across the room, and picked up the spinning wheel. I managed to turn this

into this:
pardon the shoddy imaging, it was 1 am. The colors are lovely. It's soft and squishy. I smell like wet sheep and eucalyptus, but it was totally worth it. That's another project off the list.  Double woot!

After finishing up my spinning, having a brownie, and digging through the WIP basket, I ended up pulling out a bracelet I'm working in. WHICH IS ALSO CROCHET SO IT COUNTS! I'm switching between it and Miss Sparkle Pants (the stella shawl's new nickname) until I finish one, both, or March. Wish me luck.


  1. Oooh! You finished spinning the purple stuff. It's so pretty! Also, I'm excited to see the crochet blanket.

  2. I can smell the fire all the way to Lakewood. I hope you aren't too close.

    Nice handspun!
