When I am on such a tight deadline....why oh why do I always suddenly find myself enthused about all the wrong things.  Instead of finishing the weaving projects I have going, the photos I need to get done for the patterns, the yarns that need dyed for the kits, etc.  I find myself suddenly obsessed with..........sock knitting machines.  I know, how strange is that?  Luckily I am not buying any just watching lots of YouTube videos and such.

I have got a bit done.  I finally blocked the Baah Shawl.  It is a really fun pattern by Michelle Miller of FickleKnitter fame.  I love her one-skein shawls.  I used Baah Yarn, La Jolla in Chocolate Latte.  It turned out great.  Here are a couple of pictures.  Better pictures will be posted ( probably on Ravelry ) when it's not rainy & dreary outside.

Love blocking wires!

Blocking works magic on lace shawls!

I spent a good 30 minutes searching for my blocking wires.  When I finally decided to just forget it & pin the crap out of it, I grabbed my Block n Roll Mat and imagine my surprise when the tube of blocking wires fell out of the center of the roll.
It's a great place to store the wires as long as you can
remember that you put them there.

In the midst of my push to get things ready for the Covered Bridge Festival....I decided I absolutely must practice my spinning.  So out came the wheel, which needed cleaned & oiled just so I could decide....  "No, I do not have time for this".
But it does look lovely now.

I have a scarf on the loom that I am determined to finish today.  The yarn to the side is the next one up. I am so in love with these scarves.  They are so soft and luxurious with subtle stripes provided by the Noro yarn. I wish the lighting in here could show you  how beautiful the colors are.

Well, time is flying by so check back soon to see what else I have accomplished in my deadline crafting.

And don't forget to visit me at the Bridge Fest!
