Another sleeve to go

Wicked just needs another sleeve. I need some time to actually knit that sleeve.

This is so frustratingly close to being done that I want to ignore the world and just get it done.



Life of course has other plans.
Plans like the Mt Pleasant Fiber Festival that Tigers and I went to on Saturday with the girls.
The fiber festival where I was remarkably restrained and didn't purchase any yarn.
No yarn came home with me at all. This was partly due to lack of lighting near the handpainted yarns, I can't choose something if I can't see it; and partly due to my plan of not buying small amounts of yarn that I end up not knowing what to do with.
I still have the purple handspun I purchased last year which I can't decide if it is destined for mittens or socks.
I left the fleece behind too, same story, I still have last years taunting me that I have never learnt to spin.
I was hoping to find a swift but didn't see one.....
Books... My wishlist included Stephanie Japel's Fitted Knits and Favourite Socks.
I came home with Fitted Knits and am waiting for Favourite Socks to arrive.
Miss B's list consisted of ....... Fudge.
She found fudge and was happy.

I went to the fair too. But I bought yarn as well as books. I had hoped to find a drop spindle there but probably was lucky not to if you know what I mean.......

Oh no! 2paw beat me to the wittily obvious - great minds etc etc :)
I am so looking forward to seeing the finished product! And hey, if you have purple handspun you don't know what to do with, I'm sure I could put you out of your misery and provide it with alternative accommodation down south ;>
Nice restraint at the festival - wixh me similar at next weekend's craft fair!
