WiP Wednesday

I finally broke out my poor neglected wheel.  It’s been what seems like forever since I spun anything – she’s all dusty, poor thing.  I had started spinning this a while ago and then got distracted by knitting and stopped in the middle of it.

So now I’m determined to finish it so I can start on my new alpaca fleece. 

Grey/black, rose-grey and cream alpaca fleece.

Wut?  Fleece doesn’t count as stash, right?  That’s my justification for buying some when I’m currently on a ‘Cold Sheep’ stash diet.  It’s not a sheep, and they’re now cold alpacas, so it’s all right… don’t look at me like that.

Let’s move on.

I decided not to push myself for that deadline on my sweater design – I didn’t like the contract terms after reading them through more thoroughly.  The contract (it was for a contest) had entrants sign away all rights to the designs they submitted.  I didn’t like that, so it’ll get done whenever it gets done  – which will still probably be soon, because I’m in love with the design, and it’s almost done anyway.  Not sure if I’ll self-publish or submit it somewhere, but I’ll cross that bridge later.

Long story short, I picked back up my cashmere shawl/stole this last week, and got a few more rows done:

I’m about done with three full chart repeats of the lace (out of 20).  Still a long way to go on it.

So, that’s pretty much it for this week.  We’ll see what I can get done now that I don’t have a deadline hanging over me.
