ON MY NEEDLES
Due to an overwhelming case of wanting to cast on all the things, my WIP to FO ratio has fallen so far as to be nonexistent. Every time I pick up whatever catches my eye in the WIP pile, I swear to myself that THIS IS THE ONE, the one that will spark my stick-to-a-tive-ness and soon it will move from the Land of WIPS into the Paradise of FOs. Yeah, still working on that.
Work continues on the Simple Skype Socks. Link to my project page here.
This project probably would have been finished if I hadn’t noticed a few rows that were cataclysmically screwed up. I finally ended up frogging them completely, after trying for at least an hour to tink them back. Lesson learned, don’t try to tink on the last leg of a 20+ hour trip. It’s much more efficient to rip and start over.
Don’t even ask me what this hot mess is. I think it’s a bit of handspun that I decided keep as a single. This obviously was a mistake on my part. I got busy and plied it into a double and we’re all a lot happier with the result. See?
Found my notes on this hot mess! Yay! Organic Polwarth from Three Waters Farm Top of the Month Club in Maple and Hickory.
ON MY WHEEL
This is slowly becoming this –
I’m working on spinning this lovely roving close to laceweight, hoping to end up with a nice sock yarn after plying – a challenge. This roving is from, you guessed it, Three Waters Farm Top of the Month Club. It’s a Blueface Leicester wool and called Living Color.
