Let's Get Caught Up

Here are some random images that I've been meaning to post for some time, but could not get my act organized. We have to backtrack a little, but then we will all be up to speed. In medical news, though I've been coughing non-stop for the past 3 weeks, after a doctor's visit and a chest x-ray, it was determined that I do not have pneumonia, nor a heroin addiction (which alarmed me on WebMD when I checked on what a "persistent cough" could mean). Probably just a mild lung infection. Anyway, here goes:

Here is GYAC Farm League All-Star Team. Please take note of the ONE kid without his hat on.

Here's Gus and Stephen, representatives of the mighty Orioles:

Here is the beginning of the Kingdom Gloves from Knitty that I started on my Columbus/TNNA trip:
I consider myself a fairly competent knitter, but you're looking at the most complicated, butt-kicking piece of knitting I've ever done. And that's just the cuff! I had to take a break from them, which may be permanent.

I did finish my Lady Eleanor Stole:
Love love love this project! I would do another one in a heartbeat.

I taught a yarn-dyeing class at the Tangled Web last week. Here are my students' efforts, which I brought home to dry:

For an emotionally-corrective experience from the Kingdom Gloves, I started the Cozy Cabled Mittens by Karen Konop. I absolutely lurve these:
How I love making a mitten. The yarn is 100% merino from Adams Farm in Vermont. It is so gloriously sheepy-smelling that I stop every few rows and just bury my nose in the yarn. It is divine. I even made Matthew smell it, which he did, grudgingly. Cream-colored mittens are not the most practical thing, though, so I may overdye them when I'm done. Stay tuned.

Here's what's occupied most of my recent spare time, between coughing fits:
This is the last of the TNNA orders, almost ready to be shipped out. That was a lot of pattern printing!! But now I'm almost caught up and am thinking and planning about what's next for Momogus Knits patterns. Stay tuned here or here.
