@youlovegnats: OMG. Knitting. Bettas. I just died... and went to this thread.

I've got a million projects going right now (bad habit... nothing ever gets finished).

Here is the last hat I've completed.

I was selling hats on etsy.
The creepy foam head was my mothers idea. Uhmm... yea.

I've put knitting on a backburner lately, the more obsessed with my fishies I get.
Hopefully, as fall comes back around, I can profit to support my habits - I'll get back to it!

I have... 4m/5f bettas, two cats, one dog, one rat, and a husband... ;]

Raising my first spawn! One week old as of 12/14 :3

Ok here is the yarn I spun up - it's from last October's Bee Mice Elf monthly club. I bought 8 oz of it from a member that was in the club - I stupidly dropped my membership 2 years ago!

Here it is about sock weight, 2 ply. Hasn't been washed yet.
.
And this is the leftover singles I had, navajo/chain plied, probably about worsted weight, or DK



And this is my most recent dye job (recent as in a month ago lol) Fish Pond on organic gaia in bulky weight. A whole lb of it :) I haven't reskeined it yet.

Thanks guys :) Fiber is my passion. Unfortunately, I don't get to play with it as much as I'd like.

mmmm hand dyeds, I love using hand dyed floss for my cross stitch, it can make just such interesting projects.

Just a lil update on my current project (Cause I love to share and thrive on attention :P)
She's at the half way point, well I haven't decided if it's a he or a she yet, but isn't that face adorable?

So nice! It's a dragon?

I want to spin up some floss for my mom for Christmas actually. I figure I can spin about as thin as 2 plies, which it seems for embroidery you generally use at least 2 plies so I think it will work.

I've already started on my next spin, a medium grade wool from Becoming Art. This is only 4 oz and I'm spinning to around worsted weight so it should go quickly! Already done with the first bobbin.

I really need to get pics of the tank top I made my dd recently, and the scrappy blanket that I'm working on.
