ON THE NEEDLES
Los Manos Locos aka The Crazy Monkeys, with just a couple more pattern repeats before starting the cuff. By the way, this is a free Ravelry pattern. You can find it here.
i have two books today, one in progress and one finished. I finished a great one last weekend, The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. Good, good book, well worth a look. In progress, almost finished, is Gifted Hands, an autobiography by Ben Carson, M.D., a pediatric neurosurgeon. Another great book well worth reading.
OUT OF THE DYEPOT
Here is a look at the fiber I dyed Sunday-
Dyed with Jacquard Acid Dye, Sky Blue
I started spinning this today and so far, it’s spinning up easily and quickly. I really love the intense blue. I’m a little out of practice, but I’m shooting for sock yarn. The spinning bug again took up residence in my head, I didn’t realiize just how much I missed spinning until today, when I started on this roving. I’m glad to be gettting back into it.
I’m linking today with Tami, Ginny and Frontier Dreams.
