Just About Done

The silk & yak shawl is complete except for the finishing - wash, block & work in the ends. It will be a good detention turn in for the House Cup in January.
I love it beyond all reason.

A Little Crocheting

... and spinning was done at the end of last month.A few more squares for the steampunk blanket, some mohair spun on the drop spindle during Blizzcon and some red shetland that I picked up at the Torrance fiber fair.

Currently there is a shawl project with no pictures (I ran out of yarn and it is in the "time out" corner) and this small shawl (larger now) that is a real treat to knit. 
The yarn is handspun 3 ply silk & yak. I just started the 3rd (or 4th) repeat of the dark colors and it is stunning and soft as ... silk & yak.
