Thankfully, after about a week and a half of rest, my back felt much better, and I was able to continue work on some other projects. Here's what I've been up to.

First, I had a custom order from my Etsy Shop, from someone who really liked my "Starlight" yarn, but wanted something in worsted weight.

Then I worked on 2 coordinating yarns from a beautiful batt of Mardi Gras inspired merino, 2 laceweight yarns (handspun merino and commercial mohair), and some metallic threads, and beads.
The first is Carnivale:

And the second is Tryst

In an effort to utilize some of my other crafting skills, I also whipped up this little sketchbook/journal:

And these hair sticks:

Yeah, I really missed crafting when I was injured. :) In other news, I am in the process of moving into some studio workspace, which I will be sharing with geekpixie. I am very excited about it, but will be glad when the moving part is done, and I can just go play in the studio. yay!

Before my back pain put me out of commission for a while, I finished up these two yarns. The first is called "Tempest" and is for the EtsyFAST April challenge: Storms

The second one is unnamed, so I welcome any suggestions you might have.

Just found out that my "Starlight" yarn was featured in a treasury by spawnofflame, who sells some very cool lampwork beads. Pretty, pretty.

Was happily working on some new projects, but am out of commission for a bit, as my back started spasming last night. Throughout the day today, it got progressively worse, so that at this point I am barely mobile. *sigh* Speaking of which, I am going to go rest now. G'night.
