Some Red and some Brown....Lots of knitting and some spinning.

I'm so glad it's Friday!  This week has felt like it dragged on forever, however, there has been lots of knitting, actually spinning, and planning for future projects.  I was able to finish another newborn hat.  This one is for my cousin's baby who is due in the next couple months. Since at this point, none of the dogs would model for me.  This is all you get.

Before starting on all this baby knitting, I had been working on some hats for Christmas present. I pulled out some stash yarn and knit using the Warm Ribbed Winter Hat pattern by Lucy H. Lee in Malabrigo Burgundy.  Since I was taking pictures for my Ravelry projects, here is the picture of the first one I finished on Jackjack.

And then there has been spinning.  I started on Wed knitting about 15-25 minutes a day.  I even have been spinning for a little bit when I've gone home for lunch.  I'm working on some brown Merino roving that I purchased at Maryland Sheep & Wool.  It's from the processor Zeilinger Wool Co.  My goal at MDSW was to purchase fiber from some of the processors so I can see if I like their processing.  So far, I've really enjoying spinning this fiber up.  I can't decided whether it's the processing, the fact that I haven't spun in a while, or the fact that it's Merino. :)

I'm very excited for this weekend!  Tomorrow, Special K and I are planning to head to brunch and then out to Babys R Us to start looking at things to register for.  I hope we can find a good bedding set because I haven't really seen what I'm looking for yet.  Other than that, I plan to get some crafting done, finish organizing the baby's room, and clean up the house.  I'm sure some other things will get squeezed in there but I do love weekends.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Happy Knitting and Spinning!
