Wool overload, work overload, knitting overload, you name it, I haz it.
Because I am mentally overloaded as well, here are some pictures to make you happy. They make me happy, so why not share right?
This super soft, super squooshy yarn was spun up from a batt from Zarzuela. It’s superwash merino, and it was really fun to spin.
I got so focused on trying to spin consistent that I threw caution to the wind and let this do what it wanted. It was so enjoyable! There’s a bit over 100 yards there, and I think it needs to be a cushy cowl for someone.
This pretty periwinkle was spun up from a few batts that I got from my friend Meg. I have touched the sheep it came from, which is cool, IMO.
I had fun with this too – I spun right off of a corner of the batt and just let it to it’s thing!
There is a bit of pink in here, which I like. It picked up some remnants of the dye left over from the prior fleece. It gets an A+ in my book!
If you are a spinner and haven’t checked out CJ Kopec’s Spin-A-Long, run there now. Quickly. That way you can play too!
It’s spinning up pretty thin, and I’m hoping to get something between fingering and lace weight out of it. I may have a plan if it turns out!
Lastly, I’d like to share what I wore yesterday. In May. In North Carolina. I made sure everyone knew I was wearing WOOL.
Mini-Me snagged the pic right before we walked out the door. She wants you all to know that I wake her up too early and that she was tired, hence the blurry shot.
At any rate, I managed to keep it on until around noon. When Cabana Boy came over around 730pm, I had it back on.
CABANA BOY LIKES KNITTING.
(Now you know why keep him around :-P)
Before I forget, Daniele sent me a lovely box full of fiber last week. Some of which came from her very own sheepy friends!! Thank you so very much, Daniele – I cannot wait to sit down and play!!
I have been knitting, but I can’t show you. Mum reads the blog and she can’t know. Luckily, mum is not on Ravelry yet. Hah!
PS – Still no USB cord for camera. Purchasing card reader shortly.
PSS – there’s more handspun on the camera. Yes, it’s ok to be scared for my sanity now.
