Better pics of yarn

I managed to get better pictures of the BFL yard--the colors are really hard to photograph properly.

There's not as much red as in the previous pictures.

I keep walking by the yarn and petting it. :-)


I started another project with my hand spun:

That's the Targhee roving I go that was full of noils. I dyed the roving, carded it to blend the colors, and then spun it and Navajo plied the singles.

I'm using the pattern Evangeline Fingerless Mitts, which was originally up on Magknits before it folded. Right now the pattern is only available through Ravelry, I believe.


Last night I finished my Dué Amori fingerless mitts, finally! I don't know why I kept putting them down, since they were a very enjoyable knit.


I got an email today that I won a scrapbooking drawing contest! I have no idea what the prize is, and I have to wait about three weeks until it gets here apparently. I'm so spoiled any more--I want instant gratification. :-)


Yesterday I took advantage of the decent weather (it was around 72 as the high) and put up the Christmas lights on the front of the house. I haven't connected power to them, although I did test them before I put them up. I'd really like to wait until after Thanksgiving to turn them on, but the kids might ping me to death before then. We'll see!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
