In the Pink Part 2

Here is my eye candy for today: the plied yarn I posted as spun singles awhile back along with 2 other colors I also have finished. ImageI have a total of 600 yds with the hank on the right being about 400 yds.  Am thinking of knitting this yarn up as a lacy vest I found on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lace-vest.  I own the Luisa Harding book and am thinking a pink/fuchsia vest body with the other 2 variations graduating to the lavender as I knit toward the scoop neck might work.

I have been diverted by other things and have been absent from the blogosphere.  Sometimes life takes over.  But I always have to make room for craft therapy.

Our Farmers Market started last weekend and my husband sells native plants there every Saturday.  I usually hang out but get kinda antsy over the course of 5 hours.  The weather has been nice enough these first 2 Saturdays to take my spinning wheel and set it up outdoors to spin while the patrons browse through the market.  It has been fun to pass some of the market time spinning and it has been even more fun talking to the people who stop to watch and ask questions or share stories.  I think as artisans part of our work is in doing stewardship to keep interest and information about our crafts.

One more piece of eye candy to wrap up the theme for today.
