I've been busy with work, school, knitting, and spinning. It's a careful balance, and I'm looking forward to finishing with school for the summer very soon. Here's what I've been up to.
On April 15th I went to the last day of Knitting in the Heartland. I took one spinning class from Jacey Boggs, who was fantastic. Check out all of these spinning wheels!
Corny Goodness - Fingering Weight in Blue Jay and DK Weight in Fern Green Medium (it's made from corn and it's really soft!)
Nerd Girl Yarns - <3 Heart You (100% superwash merino) in I'm a Knight
Esther Purl Fibers - Cormo Roving Braid, 4 oz.
Wooliebullie - 50% merino, 25% silk, 25% bamboo, 2 oz, in Raspberry Swirl
City Street Textiles - two 1 oz. rainbow batts
Treasure Goddess - Superwash Merino braid, 4.1 oz in Mint 'N Teal and Fluffy Batt Superwash Merino Wool & Sparkle, 2.7 oz in Turquoise
So I need to get spinning!
So as far as finishing goes, I don't have a lot. I've been working on some big projects lately. Currently I'm working on my Evenstar Shawl, aka The Lace Monstrosity.
I also have a Zora sweater freshly on the needles out of Malabrigo sock in Cote D'Azure.
I always have some socks going. These are the Cookie A sock club April shipment, Nanaimo socks in Socktopus Sokkusu Original in River Styx.
Recently finished I have a pair of socks:
I used a sock pattern called Groovy Socks with Walking Wisti Travel yarn in Zombie. I've been wearing them every day since.
Also, I made a pair of booties for a co-worker:
This is my favorite bootie pattern, Christine's baby booties. They used only a couple of yards of the Corny Goodness Fingering in Blue Jay. I have plenty of yarn left over, so I'm sure that there will be more.
That's mostly it for my April fiber-y yarn-y adventures.

The stage background was filled with jungle plants and a stuffed lion. They played some songs from the new album and I'm looking forward to checking it out when it's released on June 12th.
