The last few days have been quite busy and hectic for me, but I’ve managed to do a bit more spinning and I even managed to “destash” quite a bit of yarn on eBay. There’s nothing better than a little spring cleaning for the craft room. Of course my hubby just laughs at me and tells me he knows that I will be getting more yarn to replace what I just unloaded, which is a true statement. He knows me far too well!
Over the past weekend I finished plying my Romney and was so excited to end up with a lovely skein of fingering weight yarn coming in at 242 yards, which is a lot for me. After I’m finished spinning my Shetland and Silk blend, which is quite yummy, I plan to spin the two dusty blue colors of Romney fiber, 2 oz of each. I will ply them together as well and aim for the same amount of yardage.
I frogged the handspun beret I was working on last week and I had to laugh at how large it was turning out to be. It was quite hilarious to say the very least. So after much searching, I found what I think is the perfect pattern for my 200 yards of BFL Fiber, Shizuku by Angela Tong, which was in the 2012 Knitting a Pattern a Day Calendar and is available as a free download on Raverly. This is a fun project so far and I will have a progress photo tomorrow for the Wednesday Yarn Along.
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
