I'm home mending from some virus that declared war on my lungs. Along with the napping, fluid drinking, and doctor's office calling, there have been some moments of fun...

Plum Pie

5 Plum Pie
Hello Yarn Fiber Club (begged)
4.o oz, yardage... um 200?

Before I was stricken, I spun this from the fold. Probably not an orthodox choice, but I found it easier to spin a fine(r) yarn from a large diameter top that way. The color transitions are long and have that wonderful quality of being somewhat barber-poled... I think you can see here a green bit with a brown bit... that makes a long stretch of green/brown yarn. Yummy. A kindly raveler sold this 4 oz, and another kindly raveler sold me a second 4 oz when I realized I had half the yardage I expected. The kindness of knitters to the rescue! If I have energy enough to be decisive, I will cast on either a Baktus or Feather & Fan Comfort Shawl this evening.

My lovely goodies also arrived from my swap partner:

Pretty Pictures!

Thank you, Paula! They are right next to the dining room table where I can look at them every day.

And there is also a cute little sweater that I finally found a moment to get buttons onto:


Babies grow fast, so it's good to get this finished a few months before my friend is due!

The prints look so good!! I love the way you framed them.

Every recipient of one of your baby sweaters is incredibly lucky. :) The weather just cooled down a little, so I'm going to make Camilla wear hers tomorrow before it's 80 degrees again.

OOOOH!!! I haven't come on here for a long time! The sweater looks magnificent! I'm so excited! Those pictures of paula's look really nice on your wall too :)
