Spinning

  • Managed to spin about half a bobbins worth of alpaca fiber.

Knitting

  • Making really good progress on my Jeck Socks.  Ripped back, knit the heal turn, finished the gusset and now I am on to knitting the foot.

Biggest Project

  • The search for the boy’s diploma gave me a great excuse to unpack all the boxes in the craft room.  I have managed to get all my books put on the shelves.  I inventoried my fiber stash and got it put away.  I am chugging away on getting all my yarn stash inventoried.
