Yes, its nearly November already and after looking at the piles of WIP that I have I have decided to repeat what I did last year and make November the month for NO casting on of new projects. Currently I have OTN :-

Great American Aran Afghan (I am ashamed to say this was being knitted last November too)

Spider Web shawl from VLT


Goddess Knits Anniversary Shawl

Nativity - just the kings to do now.

Aran Jumper for DS2

Chunky Jumper for DS2


Crochet hat

and have just signed up for Woolly wormheads mystery hat.

Hopefully I should have made a dint in these projects by December.

Anyone else up for the challenge?

Guess who got a spindle.

Yes, I succumbed at last after seeing all the lovely fibre on various blogs . The spindle was from the Yarn Yard with some lovely fibre as packaging too. The fibre I spun here was part of the hipknits project club, and was intended to make felt beads.

Its a bit thick and thin and isnt spun very tightly in places but I am so proud that I made it.

Its a mystery !!!!!!!!!!

Yes, its been a month since I blogged, I have spent all last month working on 3 mystery shawl KALs.
I started the Goddess Knits anniversary shawl in July, but have been knitting it on and off, finally got to the edging this month to discover this

yes, I ran out of yarn 5/6 of the way around the edge, think I will have to frog the edging and reknit it in a contrast yarn, I have about 40g of black Jaggerspun zephyr which should do.
I have also been working on Secret of the stole III, I am knitting this in Baruffa cashwool, in denim
This is clue 4 just finished, I am behind on this as clue 8 has just come out, however I am hoping to have this finished by the end of the month.
I am also taking part in MS4, using yarn from ebay, I have done up to clue 3 so far and clue 5 has just come out
I also took part in a swap on the crafty threads n yarns forum and got a lovely package from Linz, I was very well stalked as she had read somewhere that I love the gingerbread men that you get from Greggs in Yorkshire.

The socks are monkeys in opal prisma and fit perfectly.
