So much spinning so little blogging.

I know I have been a bad blogger lately. My life has been pretty busy and last week I was sick most of the week. :( I miss my knitting group and am excited to see everyone tomorrow night. I still have yet to post pics from the weekend in Buena Vista but wonder if it is perhaps too late? What do you think, have you seen enough pics from that weekend or should I go ahead and post some?
I finished my spinning class on Sat. It was so much fun and I really learned a lot. I have been spinning so much lately that my knitting has fallen behind. I will post some pics on a future post of my yarn which I am quite proud of. For now here is what I am knitting currently.
This is the Minimalist Cardigan in the Fall Interweave Knits. I am using Mountain colors Twizzle and love love love this yarn. Of course it is my favorite color, it seems I have a lot of red yarn projects in my quere.
This is the cute little Buster sweater in Rowan Babies that I am making for a friend's little one. I hope to finish it this week and ship it off. I am still not sure if I like intarsia.
And here is the jawbreaker that I failed to post pics of when I finished it back in Sept. Boy I really am behind. My darling 5yo took this pic. I ran out of yarn so the sleeves are shorter and the collar smaller, but I do love this sweater.
Up close.
I used seed stitch for the edges which curled a lot less than the ribbing.
I also have been busy reading. While sick I read two books and just finished a 3rd today. They were all by Anita Shreve and although they were all set in different time periods the characters all lived in the same house. I had owned several of her books but had never read anything by her. I am now a fan. It has been quite some time since I have read since I am always knitting or spinning and have re-awakened my zeal for the past time. I am going to make it a point to try to read a book at least every two weeks from now on. So what should I read next? I think I will start A Thousand Spendid Suns tomorrow.

Your jawbreaker looks great! I like the modifications :)
