Thanks, Ryan, for the plug!

The brother's scarf was a failure. I have recieved instructions to make it shorter and wider. The result is that there will be no scarf at all because I don't have enough time to finish it before I leave. I had 1/3 of the scarf knit already, could have squeezed in the remaining 2/3, but not an entirely new one. So much for Christmas knitting this year. Sigh.

So I've returned to the socks but there isn't much progress to report. However, I have spun all the singles and plied all the two-plys. Here you can see the two-ply in it's glorious unevenness:

First spinning, two ply yarn

Today I also felted an array of pincushions: one sphere, two long cylinders, one squat cylinder, one squashed sphere and one cat poo. It was supposed to be a small squat 2 cm diameter cylinder, but it looks exatly like what I scoop out of kitty litter every morning, size, shape and color. In the end, it's not bad for my first efforts, the rest of them are presentable.
