Come and Get Your Elves!!!!!!

So, I'm just going to have to wing this one with no pictures. The camera went to Brazil again (Campenis, this time (yes, indeedy!)) and isn't unpacked yet.

Pomatomus #2 is 1 repeat away from heeldom.

Sleeve #1 on James' Viking Sweater is just even with my elbow.

2 packages of felting roving from Hobby Lobby have been spun up.

The finishing elves are done with Da's Vest. Unfortunately, no pics yet, because Da is ON A CRUISE!!!!! Yes, this is worth shouting about. This man is such a woodsman that his own dog attacked him when he tried on his "cruise clothes" (sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt). I used deer antler buttons to fasten it because I am such a geek. He loves it. He wouldn't take it off. I'm sure there's a man somewhere in the Caribbean right now wearing a mohair/wool vest with blaze orange lapels and antler buttons. HI DA!!!!!!!

The shawl for Mom has not progressed. Kiddos were without their father this week, so no laceknitting was practiced. I neeeeeeeeed my laceknittingcrack.

I found 2 knots in 1 skein of Colinette Jitterbug Copperbeach while balling it up. I am not happy.... and not even dead-center, either (which would've been ok, since I'm making Mommy-Mini-Socks (my mom wears a 4 1/2)).
