A little of this…a little of that…
I’ve been experiencing a little bit of a sleep deficit lately. So, I worked on smaller projects that could travel with me during the day. Attempting to stashbust, I knit this red cowl from the leftovers of the project for my coworkers daughter. This is 100% baby alpaca. Mmmmmmm….So soft. I love knitting with this! It’s chunky so it knit up in no time. Very helpful for getting to bed on time. Unfortunately, my stashbusting project is going to take a minute. I have a lot of stash to bust!
Another travel project, the latest from my first three ply yarn, is going pretty quickly, actually.
Can you believe I’m on the last length to spin already? This actually may get done this weekend. Whereas the other two spins (see here)….well, we won’t go into how long they took again, lol! Not sure what to attribute the time difference to for the disparity. But, I do know that as it gets closer to plying day, I’m getting more and more anxious to see it done!!
And, I finally got to play with my wheel today! I’ve been missing it since the weekend before last. Normally, when I spin during the week, it has to be late at night. This week, I’ve been turning in so early, I never got to touch the poor thing. Well, today, she was given the attention she was rightfully due.
Now, there’s no real way to tell, but I think this could be the center. So I’m going to be starting a new bobbin with this tomorrow. One step closer to plying this!! Although I have been thinking of dyeing this merino that came with the wheel some red color just to see what it would be like to ply all of that together. I haven’t decided yet. It might be best to keep this fiber’s integrity just because I love it so much.
Oh, have I told you all that I’m IN LOVE with this fiber?! Yes, this has progressed past the like stage…past the like a lot….past the love stage. This is actually a head over heels stage.
Well, it is the season for lovers.
