Nothing too terribly exciting to post about...working on spinning up some roving I bought last August at the Midwest Fiber Festival. It's a nice blend of merino and tencel...really makes it kinda slippery to spin with the tencel in there, but such beautiful colors I'm having fun with it. I'm hoping I get enough yardage to use it in a little Baby Surprise Jacket (Zimmerman).

Working on some flower motifs (crochet) for the May Flower Swap on Ravelry...should have those done by tomorrow. The colors my swap partner requested are reds with medium greens. The colors I requested for myself are Halloween inspired: pumpkin orange, purple, fuschia, hot pink, wee bits of yellow, grays and lime green. My idea is that I will then crochet these together with chaining (like netting) with black, then I'd be able to use it as a table runner of sorts...hmmmm...I hope it looks as nice as I envision it being.

And, have another repeat or two of the lace pattern on the Boheme sweater. I'd think this will be done by tonite, there's a Red Wings game on and I'll be knitting/crocheting thru-out.

If all goes well I'll have some photos to post by tomorrow.
