This is what's been eating up at least some of my time:

Spinning and knitting, and I finished the scarf I had been working on for my hubby:

scarf on spinnignwheel

For those of you who are into this sort of thing:

Scarf knitted by me in a non-stretchy rib pattern (cast on multiple of 3, slip the first stitch of each row, k2p1 until the last two stitches, which will be knit, turn, repeat.) Border are 6 rows of garter stitch.

Thread was 2 strands of 2 ply handspun wool (the doubled thread about 10 wpi), a blend of brown, black and a touch of white.

knit on size 3 US needles. gauge on the stockinette is somewhere around 6 stitches per inch.

That's a pic of my old Majacraft Saxonie spinning wheel.  They don't make that model any more.  I've been thinking about getting a Kromski Sonata...that's another sweet spinning wheel....time will tell.
