First week of school down! And let me tell you…It was a doozy!! I have a new office and a new officemate to get used to this year. And, already, the first week of transportation for Girl Child was a hot mess, y’all! And I may still have some tweaking to do for that this week. But I made it through! :)
In between time, I played with my spindles.
Yup. Finally started on the second part of my spin for the two ply of Secret Garden by Sosae Caetano. It’s coming along.
I also started playing with my latest stash enhancement from NC.
This yarn does ALL the work, lol! The yarn is Noro Taiyo. Isn’t it lovely? This is just a swatch and I can already see how much I really am going to love Girl Child in anything in this yarn! The colors are scrumptious! I did decide that rather than a hat though, I would make her some legwarmers for this fall. And while the yarn is doing it’s thing, I am considering throwing some hearts in this baby somehow (just because I love the girl so much :) ).
For this swatch, I used 27 stitches and knit a couple inches in the round. I usually use an even number like 20, 30 or 40. But, I ran out of stitches before I got to 30 stitches, so 27 it was, lol. Little did I know, 27 was the magic number. I got 4.5 stitches to the inch and Girl Child’s ankle measurement was 5.5 inches. She’s a tiny thing…nothing but a string bean. And though I had to measure for a little give, I decided to only go up a half inch and multiply by 6 inches. Mhmmm…27 stitches.
