In this episode, I have got some knitting, some spinning, a little bit of sewing, I am all spun up about Instagram and I put my spin on some happy mail.
- I am getting back to my routine and have no big plans
- Not a whole lot of action and adventure going on right now
Spin a Tale
- Living on the Palmer Divide.
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.
- The hats. I have actually been knitting on the hats. However, there won’t be a 2-color version. I will have to learn something new to get it done. Took a minute but I found that MadTosh Farm Twist I knew I had. I decided I will likely do another version in Malabrigo Rios.
- I totally should have swatched. The way it’s going, Weekender is going to be UGE. I may be able to salvage it but we shall see.
- I finished the plying on the 50/50 cashmere and silk from TurtlePurl Yarns. But, it’s still on the niddy noddy. I am not exactly sure if it can be set the same way as wool. Is that lame?
- I started on some 100% Polworth from deep stash. It’s from Abstract Fiber in the color way Cosmopolitan
- I have returned to my preferred drafting method. I don’t know what it’s called but I will figure it out. It’s kind of a mix between a handful of these methods as described by Interweave: Seven Drafting Techniques
I made door stops! I used this tutorial but lined mine with plastic bags to keep the organic material from deteriorating. I used some stash fabric too… Kaufman Essex yarn Dyed cotton/linen. I also incorporated some recovered ribbon I rescued from some packaging.
All Spun Up
- Friggin’ Instagram
Put my Spin on it
- Happy Mail! I got a copy of Operation Sock Drawer by the Knitmore Girls AND a Uneek Sock Kit in the colorway OranGGe… its a collar between Gayle Gillespie and Urth Yarns.
Thanks again for tuning in. I have got some big plans for the future. I need to skirt some fleeces and I have some mending plans.
