In this episode, I have got some knitting, some spinning, a little bit of sewing, a tale for you about all my coveted little treasures and I have some special words for all those full-time caregivers.
- I made it home safely and had an uneventful trip
- I am getting back into the swing of things in my home and returning to my routine
- Again, I learned a lot about myself during my time at mom’s
- The girls are doing really well and I share what they are up to
Spin a Tale
- Instead of coveting what I have amassed in my stash and craft room, I am going to start putting my treasures to use. I want to knit all the socks, I want to sew all the bags, and I want to spin all the fiber.
Spinning my Wheels
I have been very busy. I wouldn’t say I finished a lot but I have made progress.
Generally speaking, I knit more in the winter. However, I always have something in the works.
- I finished those self-striping socks I had been working on… except for the weaving in.
- I used a German short row heel and used this tutorial to help me out: Nimble Needles.
- I used Jeny’s Suprisingly Stretchy Bind Off. I used a tutorial from KnitFreedom. It originally was published in print on Knitty.
- There are tons of great dyers who do self-striping sock yarn. Three I have used are: TurplePurl Yarns, Valkyrie Yarns, and Mudpunch.
- I know where the Weekender is.
I have just about finished the 50/50 cashmere and silk from TurtlePurl Yarns. By next time, it should be spun and plied.
I shortened and sewed those curtains for my mom’s house. Just simple chore sewing but it got done.
All Spun Up
- Feeling the love, and the alpaca make an appearance.
I have a message for full-time caregivers.
