Things to do while waiting to vote

Handspun! I'm part of the Spunky Eclectic monthly fiber club, though you would not know it from my lack of spinning. I spun July's shipment, "Celebration" (on the left) as well as another shipment, the name of which was lost. Two skeins of two-ply barber-pole goodness at heavy worsted weight, about 160 yards each.

Right now the plan is to spin up a bunch of this lovely fluffy brown top that I've already prepped and use this funky barber-pole stuff as accents on some sort of simple cardigan.

Mitten! Made a mitten yesterday, the last in a series of three single mittens for a commission. It's a Lopi Mitten, made of Lopi, from the book Folk Mittens.

Socks! Rib and Cable socks by Nancy Bush from Interweave Knits Fall 2005 in Kureyon Sock. Christmas knitting is well underway.

And check this out for happy laughs, not "I'm so scared of where this country could be going" laughs. Happy laughs!

Yup, I've started my Xmas knitting too, but I'm nowhere near finished anything yet!

I did some Xmas yarn shopping for me the yarn for my very own NIEMAN! Woo hoo!

You get so much done, it's amazing!

Your spinning looks ace and the socks are just glorious. I love your blog and all the great stuff you have on it!
