I have reached my fundraising goal today thanks to all of you, and there are still more donations coming in. I am so happy and thankful. I am about to burst!

Know what else makes me happy? This is off of the loom.

DD scarf is off of the loom

I still have to do the fringe and full it, but the actual weaving part is done, so the last of the scarves can get on the loom. This is what I am thinking for the last scarf:

Habu silk drawdown

The warp for it is being wound on my warping mill as I write this. Well, not actually “as” I write this. I am taking a break from winding so that I can write this.

There has been knitting going on, though:

Tannenbaum socks in progress

I am calling this my Tannenbaum socks. I want them to say “Merry Christmas” without being limited to only Christmas wear. The color is a little off, but you get the idea.

Also, since I finished the Pride socks, I needed another pair of socks that didn’t require a great deal of brain to knit, thus:

Basket Weave Rib socks

The yarn is from Spirit Trail that I bought at MSWF. Again, the color looks a bit different in person, but the general idea is there. The stitch pattern is from Schurch’s SKS.

Do I sound excited? Because I am. Thank you, again.

  4. I’m glad to hear you met your goal and I can only imagine all the competition for your gorgeous scarves. I love your Tannebaum socks, is this an original design of yours? Your basket weave socks are nice, too, I almost thought it was Claudia Handpainted yarn. Good luck with your race!

  5. Congratulations!

    Those Spirit Trail socks are very pretty! I have a friend who did a pair in a similar stitch pattern and they looked great, too.

    Glad you’re excited!!
