Pretend it’s really eye candy, okay? It’s supposed to be sunny later today, but it’s been a while since there’s been sun in my kitchen.

First, the shetland singles I alluded to last week:

This is the Banff colorway from Spunky Eclectic (4 oz, just split into two skeins). I have yet to count the yardage, but I’m happy with the yarn (despite some overtwisted spots). It’s really soft. And now I’m especially happy that this month’s club fiber is shetland.

Next, weaving!

I’ve finished sampling for my mom’s birthday stole. This piece is about 3.5″ wide and about 2.5′ long. The bits with superwash merino/silk weft are softer than the bits with the Falkland weft that I’m planning to use for the actual stole, but I think the Falkland will be quite nice when not right next to a silk blend. And if I can refrain from beating quite so hard. (Should be doable.)

And, lastly, here’s some knitting:

I couldn’t resist the Funhouse singles (from that same post linked above) for very long, at all. This is the first chart (aka 25 rows) of a Revontuli.
