N-Plying, La Mer Scarf, Tour de Fleece, Lace and a Vest

I tried my hand at Navajo plying the Mandy. After a bit of a rough start, I think I got the hang of it… for the most part. Had a few spots in the single where it came apart, but a quick spit-ply and she was back in action. I love the 3-ply effect of Navajo plying! Here’s the Mandy all plied up:

Finished my La Mer Scarf in Tunisian crochet. OMG, this BFL Walkabout is soooo soft and squooshy! It’ll get blocked – just as soon as I can bear to take it off. (There’s more pics in my Flickr Photostream, including close-ups of the stitches)

I signed up for the Tour de Fleece via Ravelry (of course!) and am in the Spunky Eclectic Team Monkey Farts. It’s a Spunky thing… which will mean absolutely nothing to someone who’s a) not in Ravelry and can see which groups I’m in, and b) is unfamiliar with the ‘adoring fans’ of Spunky Eclectic… (heh) This is what I’m spinning (SW Corrie in Aspen):

Then I decided I couldn’t leave my Burning Bush alone (stop laughing) – also a Spunky Eclectic roving – and thought I’d try my hand at lace. Soooo purrrty:

And finally, I got sick of being cold (it being winter and all) and decided to make a vest. Found this fabulous pattern, coincidentally by the marvellously talented owner of Spunky Eclectic, Amy King, bought some scrummy Patons Shadow Tweed, and cast on! I reckon I’ll have it finished in a month. Plenty of wear time!

With all these projects on the go, and at least half a dozen not even mentioned, I suspect I’m a Fibre Enthusiast with the attention span of a flea, who is quite comfortable flitting from project to project, secure in the knowledge that eventually they’ll all be FOs!
