Rainbow Socks... Socks, Shawl and Spinning Progress

I finished my Fruit Stripe Gum Socks in Knit Picks Felici in the "Rainbow" colorway.  There were a few KALs on Ravelry where they met the requirements to be entered. 

Here is a pic of the start of my second pair for February.  I don't think I will finish before the end of the month, but, I can carry them over into March.  They are just a pair of vanilla Julianna's Fibre in "Silver Lining". I'm about half way down the leg now.

My Garter Path Shawl also got some love, but, I put it on hold before knitting the next shade.  I decided to make it larger and requested a custom dyed skein from Play At Life Fiber Arts. Chrystee did a fabulous job.  The skein starts at a shade darker than the end of my original skein, and continues to a beautiful deep purple.  Perfect. :)  The pic of the original yarn is the one with the light pink and tag.

The bright Mad Color Fiber Arts braid #2 is done, and I love how it turned out.  I'm still spinning the CVM fleece for a sweater, but, I took a break to spin something with color.  This is "Seaside Cottage" in Falkland from JulieSpins.
