Hullo blogland.
First, a few photos.
Let's see, we have... Fleece Artist, Fleece Artist, oh, and more Fleece Artist.

The result of some generic feather and fan experimentation in some leftover Merino Sock Kit from a gift that I finished up (no photos yet, you'll have to wait about a month). I might even have enough to make a full(smallish) scarf. It's a good on the road project.

This is some BiFfLe (Blue Face Leicester) 2/8 that is currently being worked into the Flowerbasket Shawl from Fibertrends. It's tiny, I just cast on this evening, so I'll spare photos until there is a little bit more progress. Please remind me to get either a sift or a ball winder before winding a kilometer of fingering weight yarn into a big cake. And it is BIG!

And there is some Handmaiden (ok, ok, Fleece Artist) Sea Silk. This is destined to be the Swallowtail Shawl from the Fall 2006 Interweave Knits. But currently, it is my pet. (Speaking of luxury, I fondled the Camelspin yarn yesterday. And oh my word. Way, way, WAY out of my price range, but it is mrrrrrrrowr soft.)

I guess I'm on a lace binge. But that's how I get comfortable with a new technique, immerse myself! (And apparently I have a thing for Evelyn A. Clark).

Hmmm, otherwise, I'm sure you have heard of Ravelry (www.ravelry.com), but if you haven't, go check them out, I don't feel like talking them up here, because I'm not so good with the words today, but trust me, it is SUPER cool! (And anyone waiting for an invite: Chill. They have over 3000 requests, and they are still afraid of making the server falldowngoboom if they opened the floodgates at once. Your patience is worth preventing that I think. And yes, if I hadn't lucked out on a beta invite, I would be as impatient as anyone, I know.)

And remember kids, play nice! (I have something fun and kind of goofy to post in the next few days, I hope)

Nice to find another stalker of Evelyn A. Clark - I am working on a practice Flowerbasket Shawl right now - when I get it down pat, I am going to use this pattern with MY Fleece Artist Sea Silk. (By the way, I am having problems remembering some of the yarnovers - definately pattern fudging going on!)

I just bought the Favorite Socks IW Press book because of all the Evelyn A. Clark socks. Check them out! Now, I just step back into the shadows outside her house, camera at the ready . . .

Yay for sunset-colored Fleece Artist! I'm looking forward to the fun FO pic, too!

You're on Ravelry, too? I didn't see you when I browsed through the Beta-testers.
