So, yesterday, I had serious plying issues with that roving I was spinning up, and bad things happened. Let’s just say that it was a whole bunch of roving wasted, but I got over it and started spinning up some Blue Faced Leichester that my Spinning roving swap partner sent me. It’s just a bunch of white, but I think it’s pretty:
I’m gonna keep it a single ply yarn, then dye it dark green or blue with some Kool-aid once I’m done. And, since I’m spinning it at about a DK weight, it’s going REALLY fast. I did all that during one movie. I just want to get all the Wool spun up before the package that Mary Kay is sending me gets here. She said that If I made her a pair of Wristwarmers like I made for my Mom, then she would send me some Wool. Yay!
Also, My dad came with me to a LYS and he picked out a skein of Noro Silk Garden so that I could make him his own Fake Isle Hat. So, I have to get on that soon. Look at the pretty colors he picked!
What can I say, he has good taste.
Last but not least, the yarn for my Knitty Gritty show should be getting here soon, so I’m gonna have to knit all my Steps for the show Soon. Lots of work, but I’m excited!
