Spinning! and Knitting!

Swirl Sweater. I love this yarn. Each round is close to (a little more than ) 500 stitches, so each round takes a while. The welts are 5 rounds each and I am on welt 6. 

Topiary wrap

With the edge ribbing

It looks a lot better than I thought it would after the first half a pattern repeat. I am very pleased, and it feels so nice. Silk and cashmere will do that. ; )

Ravelry painting yarn. This first picture is some of the fibers I used for the second ply. The first ply was a solid medium blue. My inspiration painting was apparently painted in layers. I chose the medium blue as my base color, with "small brush strokes" of other colors over it.
What do you think?
I like it.
 Finn fiber by Spunky Eclectic in the Acadia colorway, which is my current spinning project. It will be plied with white or blue (or both) fiber. I'll have to test things out before making a final decision.

Your progress is even better with pictures! Love the colors, especially in the swirl shawl and the singles. The topiary has great texture, though.
