Spin a Tale

This little story is all about how “two weeks” has been driving our lives for the past few months.

Spinning my wheels

Sewing

  • I finished all my chore sewing which helped me get my machine back in order for regular projects.
  • I have been working on 5 project bags.  Got them all cut, pinned and half are all sewn.

Spinning

  • I am still spinning the first of many Bullseye Bump I own from Loop Fiber Studios.  I am spinning this on my Louet Hatbox Reproduction wheel.
  • I have also been working on some Louet fiber on a Jenkins Spindle.

Knitting

  • I knit the bottom band on the body of Eco Vest and then decided I am not in the for cables.  So that has been shelved for the time being.
  • I have cast on and have been working the On The Beach Sweater from Isabel Kraemer.  I am making good progress and am about halfway through the body.
  • I turned the heal on the two pair of socks I have on the needles: the Hermione’s Everyday socks for me and the pair of Jeck socks for the boy.
  • I am knitting samples for my super duper top secret project.  I have plans for 4 samples and am working on the second.

Spin Off

  • A huge thanks to Gigi and Jasmin of the Knitmore Girls Podcast for the generous shout out on their last episode.  It has been a huge help in people finding my little show.
  • Closing song: remake of Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear from the bluegrass tribute, Pickin’ on Coldplay.
