FO Friday: Insert Title Here

Well, I feel like it's been forever since I have had anything to show, let alone time to post, an FO Friday or a WIP Wednesday. But today I actually do have a couple things to share with you all, and I'm really excited about them, which makes it even better.

First off, I finished all my headband orders just in time to head back home. All have been safely delivered and payed for. I made $150 for Relay For Life these past 2 weeks in doing so. But I also learned to not post about customs on a college sale board unless you actually have the time to do so.  I guess I thought I'd have more free time last week than I really did. But the end results were gorgeous, check out this KSU themed one!

I feel like I have abandoned the spindle. Except for the headbands and drawings, I really hadn't been spinning too much. Well I got some rainbow dyed wool roving from a fellow spinner and started spinning it over Thanksgiving.  Plying took a hold because of the headbands, but I was able to finish it up this past week and let me say, for a 2py, worsted handspun, I absolutely love it! The color is fun and I did a great job keeping even. In fact, it's already on the needles as a winter hat for a friend who thinks it's the coolest thing ever that I spin my own yarn. Here's hoping that's done by the time I see her Sunday!

And of course it wouldn't be a true FO Friday for me without some art! I finished my painting on Wednesday (and started another!) and I am so happy with the results. Hopefully my teacher won't ask me to change anything; it's at that point where I am ready to move on and do a new one. 

I feel like I have actually learned quite a bit about knitting from painting it. I know so much more about the stitches and the directions, as well as yarn textures and designs. Who would have thought I could really combine the 2 and learn about both at the same time.

Before I leave, I also wanted to thank all of my loyal followers and commenters. You guys make my day when I read your thoughts and blogs. Keep it up guys, I wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for you.
