Spinzilla started at 12:01 AM on October 5, and I have been spinning up a storm with every free moment I get. Since the start, I have filled a total of 5 bobbins: the three at the bottom are spun from Louet Jacob fiber, the top right was spun from some of my blending board rolags, and the top right is a braid of fiber from the Cloudlover fiber club.
Leonarda shawl....and so, I frogged it AGAIN and managed to get back to the same place I was last Wednesday, more or less. I was hoping to have this off the needles and ready to wear by the end of last weekend, but clearly it wasn't meant to be. It basically looks exactly like the photo I posted last week. Sigh.
I also made some progress on my Broad Shoulders sweater, though I am still running behind my self-created sweater schedule (oh, the irony) and most of my fellow KAL-ers (ditto). For some reason, every time I tried to work on this project last week, I kept making silly mistakes that I had to later rip back. The pattern itself isn't difficult, I just have been a little stressed and overworked, which apparently means I am unable to handle anything other than stockinette stitch.
Knitscene yak cardi: the body is finished and I started the sleeves! I'm doing them two-at-a-time since I tend to get second sleeve syndrome; I love that I can use the same needles for the sleeves as I was using for the body - all I had to do was remove the interchangeable tips and secure the body stitches on the cable with the end caps from my needle set (I'm using my faves, Knitter's Pride Karbonz) - then I just found another cord to use for the sleeves!
Hands Occupied is featured on the very last page, too. It's worth checking out!
