This is our newest arrival. His name is Isaac Robert Matthews. My sister had him August 19th, and that is my son George holding him. Don't they look like they could be brother's or something? He's George's twin when he was a baby, so we've dubbed in LG (little George).

Where in the World have You Been?

I've been working! Yes, working. I've joined the world of "real people" again, and went back to the grind. I love it though. You know what that means... no time to knit or spin or dye or anything fiber related anymore (NOT). I've been busier than ever doing all of the above.
This is a circular yoke sweater that I finished a week or so ago. That charts came from Sheila McGregor's book of Scandanavian Knitting. I then adapted them to fit me of course, and gathered up some shetland wool (purchase from Schoolhouse Press), and knit this sweater.
This is a full shot of the entire body of the sweater.

Also, this is some handdyed merino/bamboo that I just finished spinning up and ready to set the twist. I don't know what color I'm going to name it yet, but I'll think of something. It's 206 yards. So, It'll make something...

The pic above is a merino/tussah silk blend that I had gotten from Ashland Bay. It was a yellowish color. I just didn't like it, so I over-dyed it with these colors. And this was the wonderful result.
That's about it for now. I've got some other things to do, but will hopefully post again soon. I'm going to be also posting to my etsy shop in about a day some gorgeous new dyed merino/bamboo blends, and merino (Chocolate Princess colorway). Until then, happy knitting all.. :)Posted by Picasa
