Getting busy..

 Working hard to get this sweater finished.All the knitting is finished for the actual sweater. It has been washed and blocked. I blocked it a little more than the pattern calls for and I like how silky and relaxed  the yarn got. I'm really surprised at how nice the yarn ended up being. I use Loops and Threads Cozy Wool. Now I'm knitting my fingers off to finish the little shawl that goes with it. Seven more rows to go!

 Yesterday I went to my local yarn shop for the last time before I move. I hope I will find a yarn shop I love as much in the area I'm moving to. As much as I didn't want to purchase anything because I will have to add that to the already bulging box of yarn that I'm shipping to my new location.. I found a beautifully dyed roving that I couldn't resist. At least its very light and can be squashed in with the rest. They were very nice and wound my handspun into a pretty cake. Now it is already to knit or crochet into something pretty. I have two patterns in mind for this yarn. I'm still deciding which one to either knit or crochet to show off the color changes of the yarn best. There are some longer color changes and some shorter ones.
Below: My Frabjous Fiber in Black Vine and Malabrigo in 870 Candombe that will be a cowl for a friend. Funny that they are both the same colors. That is it for now.. getting busy finishing projects and packing for my move.. (^_^)
