Then I got home and unlike many years felt I had to start attacking what I brought back immediately. So I've knit one of the EZ 100th Birthday Anniversary shawl patterns in the Fiber Optics gradient yarn set I bought (I haven't tackled the 4 oz gradient wool top yet):
And I started spinning some top from FatCat Knits that I bought from Susan Coughlin. These pictures were taken as I started out; I finished one third of it. It'll be a three ply sock yarn when I'm done; it's super wash BFL wool.
I really didn't buy any other yarn; it was all fleece and fiber this year for me except this. Now I need a little pattern for the leftover 150 yards of lace weight from the shawl. And if my leg ever stops hurting and swelling, I'd like to finish spinning the sock yarn.
