Catching up

It's been a while since my last post and I've had a lot going on, so I thought I should catch up. I am using the blogger ap for my phone, so my apologies for any typos. You would have thought someone would have made a spell checker  for droid by now.
On the needles are my clapotis and a shawl I am test knitting. I am using 2 skeins of Fresh From the Cauldron, silk sock, in Athena for the clapotis. I am about 2/3 of the way through it.
For the test knit shawl, I am using my Liberty's Yarn, turn of the blue, in message in a bottle. I love the color! It's actually a pretty light fingering or heavy lace weight. Very smooth and easy to work with. It'll make a nice summer shawl.

I've also been knitting some amigurumi in preparation for my panel at Sakura-Con. I've finished Ysolda Teague's Smith the hedgehog as well as a micro mountain from the Knitting Mochimochi book.

I was also able to buy a spinning wheel, and I have been having fun playing with that. I picked up done lovely BFL at Madrona, it spins like a dream.

The only  other things going on are planning the convention and I've started Weight Watchers again. I'm down 6 pounds in 2 weeks!
