TVknittingpodcast Episode 70--Mathtastic

Stitchery:


I knit over 25 projects this year. I knit over 9200 yards! I incorrectly stated that I doubled last years total, but I overestimated. I topped last years total by 2,000 yards. Still impressive.

FO:



I absolutely love this FO. It is so cozy for these winter months!

I am working on Viagante. Here is a WIP pic:


Yarn is BMFA Marine Silk Lace in the Sugarplums colorway.

I am also hosting a KAL for Thrummed mittens. Here is my first one:


Year of Handspun:

Here is my WIP:


Spindle is Jenkins Lark. Fiber is Fiberoptic in the Knitgirllls colorway. I have one ounce to go.

My goal is to spin approx. 3 grams a day on my spindles this year.

Here is another spindle Rich gave me for Christmas:


The Spindle is a Bosworth Mini.

The spindle bags the spindles are resting on were sent to me as a birthday present from a listener. I ADORE them!!!

My wheel spinning goal is to spin at least 30 minutes after dinner each evening.

I would like to have at least 10 skeins of yarn complete in 2014!
