Fiber-y Goodness!

I'm currently finishing up the remainder of my Master's thesis, and have had a lot of down time...  Thus, a plethora of knitting has occurred!

First and fore-most I had to finish a pair of legwarmers for my sister...she felted the first pair in the washing machine.

Next on the list is a hat for my grandmother.  It's kinda funny that she picked out the "hip" snowboarding hat pattern, but I do love how it came out.  I had already planned to make one for my fiance, so his will be next.

I also started (and finished) knitting the big dog yarn project that I spun before Christmas.  I found a picture of the Three Sisters Mountains in Oregon, converted it to a faire-isle knitting pattern using graph paper, and then knit it up.  The gauge didn't quite come out right, but luckily it doesn't matter.  I absolutely love how it turned out, and can't wait to see it blocked.  I also need to find a custom picture frame/shadow box to display it.

And last but not least...a second pair of legwarmers for my sister!  I just started these a few days ago, and they are slow going, so they should last me at least until I go home at the end of January.  Then I have lots more fiber-y goodness planned for my little vacation at home...mostly prepping and making things to sell in my Etsy store.  If you have any suggestions on items that you would like to see in my store, just let me know!  I'll even give discounts for everyone who gives suggestions!
