I did say once a week, right? I didn't say which day. *cough* *scuffs foot*
Hi there! I'm back with a weekly posting.
I have been knitting and spinning for the last week. I don't have great gobs of things to share with you, but I did make some progress.
For my 40th birthday (don't ask me how I got that old; I don't know either), I finally broke down and bought myself an electric spinning wheel. I bought a Vespera from Heavenly Handspinning, and though we have had our disagreements, we're getting along pretty well now.
The first yarn I spun was half of a bundle from a Mixed Blessings club from Fat Cat Knits. It was a panda blend (sw merino, nylon, bamboo) in a colorway I dubbed Como no, cebolla? (*Why not, onion?) We started like this:
And ended up like this: 130 yards of fingering weight, chain plied.
Next up on the spinning queue?
This merino in the Lakes colorway from Rogue Adventures:
In the knitting world, I am still working on the Tradisi shawl from last year. I know. *hangs head* But it's much closer to being finished.
And in dyeing news? Well. This all went in to the shop today:
Thanks for swinging by!
