Happy Thanksgiving!

A belated Happy Thanksgiving.  I ate too much, knitted way too little, and didn't sleep late enough, but it was a good one.  AND my sister took a pic of me and my mammaw and here she is :)  Best mammaw in the world!  (and makes the best sweet potato casserole known to man)

I will call her Bramblewood....

I finished spinning and 2plying a mystery roving I had received in a swap.  It is a unknown fiber, unknown dyer, but known smile maker.

I wish the bluey-teals would show through better in the pics, but you know I suck at picture taking!  I have about 75 yards from this baby and I forgot to weigh it before I spun it, so no clue whatsoever of the ounces before spinning.

I will make me a pair of fingerless mitts with my Bramblewood and be tickled browns and blues :) to wear them.

Next on the wheel will be this lovely braid from a club I joined...Bohemia Fibers, this is the October colors...gorgeous!!!!!!  It is Falkland and will be my first time spinning Falkland, I'm scared!  Off now to divide and weigh and do my best to get my bobbins even for once in my life! 
Happy knitting ya'll

I finished my Autumnal mitts (free pattern on Ravelry ) and adored this pattern.  These are a gift, so I have to cast on a pair for me next.  Guys, love this pattern, go knit a pair this winter for yourself.  The pic does not show the pattern, but they have a lovely trellisy look to them.

Also finished my Star Crossed Slouchy beret and yes, love this too!

I dyed the yarn with Kool-aid and was thinking of dying it again, but will try out the pink and see how it works for me.
 And while I was weaving in seams, my puppies were sleeping.  Love how Ava drapes herself over anything, including Finley.

So what do I do when no knitting bag.....

 I play on the phone with the zombie app and laugh my hiney off....

 ...good times :)
    Oh, I did find my elusive yarn to finish my heart soaring mitts!  Yeah, now I can end those and cast on more.

More gloves have been completed in the house, thank goodness!  Finished a quick pair of bulky Seed Stitch fingerless mitts.  Love them!  Made from a recycled sweater (kool-aid dyed).  (Cameo of Finley's nose in the pic...go Finley!)
Kind of finished 2 pairs of Soaring Hearts mitts and kind of means I did finish 2 right hands, almost finished a left hand and then ran out of yarn.....and can't find it!  I have tried Ravelry and no one has this yarn, tried 3 yarn stores, nope they don't either.  So until I can find it I have kind of finished mitts!

Back to the internet search.....
