Listening To: Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen (I LOVE QUEEN)
So, for Christmas, I got this beautiful roving, 50% Merino Wool, 50% Silk in the most gorgeous colors. Hand-dyed, too. Then when I went shopping a couple days back, mom sent me off with some money to buy fluff for me to spin for her. I found the same exact roving (the stuff that I got for christmas) but in awesome bright greens (totally my colors!). So, I bought it and gave my mom the choice between the 2 colorways, The one I was gifted for Christmas and the Green stuff I bought. She picked the Christmas Fluff, so I spun it for her:
Holy Moley, it turned out SO pretty. I wish you guys could feel it and squish it and just hug it, that’s what I wanna do with it. Who cares knitting with it, I just want to fondle it.
204 yards, If you care.
That picture is the most accurate representation, The colors and the shiny-ness that comes from the silk. Here’s a crappy close-up. You get the Idea, though:
Like I said, I got one lucky mommy.
Oh yeah, I made a scarf the other day, too:
Yep, It’s cute. I’m not sure if its very Kaity, though, you know? A little too girly. I’m not all that girly. But, It’s cute anyway, I like it. I used THIS pattern, a size G Crochet hook, and 4 different colors of Wool-Ease.
And that’s all I got tonight. Did I mention I finished my Swap Socks? Well, I did, and I sent them off.
