IOU

I completely forgot to post pictures here!  So sorry!  I promised pictures of the fabby swap package sent by Fibers and pictures of my plied yarn.  I also have a few FOs to add to the mix.  Warning! Picture heavy post!

Let’s start with the first part of the BMA1AWYL MYB Swap sent by Fibers:

Here is the best pic I could get of the pretty spindle sent!:

The second part of the swap required that we knit a neck-warmer of sorts with the yarn used in the MYB.  I am still working on FIbers’ neck-warmer but she sent mine back along with some goodies, I received it all today!

I love everything you sent Fibers, the scarf and all the extras!  Thank you! ((H))

 

Now I had mentioned the BFL dyed by Amy from Spunky Eclectic.  I had spun not-at-all-perfect-singles and Andean Plied the bobbin on the wheel.  I love the results and plan to make myself something special with this:

Now, I know the picture is not great, I will try to get a better shot in the light sometime next week.

As for FOs, I finished DH hat and mitts, again, not great shots but I will take new shots with him modeling once he receives his gifts on Christmas.

I am that much closer to finishing my Holiday knits! The Kenobi will be saved for March, our Anniversary; so I have a pair of mitts and then you can stick a fork in me!
