Pitiful - but I have an excuse....

I've been sick. Not just caught-a-virus-sick but may-need-surgery sick. The likely culprit is my gallbladder. I go back to nuclear medicine on Wednesday for a scan to check it out.

But I've done a wee bit of stitching and spinning. This is the Mosaic Moon roving being spun into singles:


I think I'm going to love these colors once they're plied together and finished but I'm wishing there was some more of the sky blue. The colorway is Gwion.

The stitching was put on hold for a while but I picked it up again:


I'm having a really hard time photographing this. I shoot everything I can in manual mode with natural light but this is tricky. Maybe Dee will check in because her stitching is always photographed so well!

Forgot to post a picture of this cutie from SAFF:


I fell in love with the angora bunnies at SAFF and spent a good bit of time learning about them. There was a woman there with one on her lap and she was spinning right off the bunny! So sweet.

The hoodie is back!

But I'm still not sure if it will be a hoodie.

The left front of the Central Park Hoodie is finished. It will need to be blocked for some width (looks very long and skinny here) but so far my measurements are right on!


Here it is resting with the back of the sweater:


Coming along nicely I think. For those who are interested, my HIDA scan came back and shows poor functioning of my gallbladder so I have a consult with a surgeon coming up. I'm hoping to time surgery (if I need it) with the holiday break from teaching if at all possible!
