I really can’t say enough about the WooLee Winder – its just amazing how fast and consistently I spin with it. A few months ago, I joined the Spinning Fiber swap and Lisa sent me beautiful hand dyed roving….so guess what I finished today?
Isn’t it beautiful? And I don’t mean “don’t I spin beautiful yarn”, but look at those colors. Lisa did such a great job on this, and it was so nice to spin. I was sorry to finish it. It turned out to be about 170 yards of worsted weight (by the way – the yarn I spun on the last post is definitely not worsted – no idea where I got that from – its bulky weight). Not sure what I’m going to do with this – for now, I’m just enjoying looking at it drying with the sun shining on it. Thanks again Lisa!
Yesterday, as I mentioned, I went out to lunch and yarn shopping with Laurie and Chris and who are completely bad influences. I had no intention of actually buying yarn (ok, maybe just some sock yarn…), or starting a new project…..
Chris was working on Ariann and I love the pattern – so pretty. Next thing you know, 6 skeins of Cascade 200 are in my arms, and I’m heading off to the register. This picture is a little off on the color – but its close. Very pretty. I really do like this yarn – so nice to work with. I am still trying to finish the shawl (somehow I am still on repeat 19 – how is that even possible? Could I have been knitting backwards?), but I will finish it this week. I hear that Ariann goes fairly quickly, but I will work it in between the two socks, sweater and lace scarf that are all patiently waiting for me to do something with them.
OK, gotta go do my repeat of the day on the shawl….
