Spun

These days, I often forget I have a blog. Can you tell? In fact…. I managed to fail to notice that I received my 500th comment recently, when I had made a mental note that it was coming up and to pay attention to it because I wanted to do something special for that person. Well, it’s late, and I don’t have much fan-fare to go with it, but…..

Kris of Bockstark Knits (or Spins…) was my 500th commenter AND it was her first time commenting when she did it. I haven’t finished making my lil something something that I planned on giving to the 500th commenter yet, but it’s coming, so expect an email from me in the near future asking for your snail mail.

….So I finished spinning my HHHH yarn. It was lovely fun. I just kinda relaxed and ended up working on my long draw and woolenish style of spinning. I freely admit that most of the time I spin almost totally worsted, but I have been thinking about trying to put a little more woolen style into things when I can, and it seems my hands are catching up with my brain on this one.

The fiber was from Creatively Dyed’s etsy shop. 4oz 50/50 Merino/Bamboo. About 173 yards of Navajo plied. It reminds me of Sweet Tarts now that it’s done. I am almost sad to be sending this off because I am curious as to how it will knit up. But send it off I will, as soon as I finish up gathering together the rest of the package. I even made a project card for my pal so she can try to recreate the same thing I did to have more yardage if she wishes.

And now I’ll stop with the typey typey and just leave you with some photos.

  1. The first photo is my favorite but that’s because I’m not a big fan of turquoise and there’s none in that shot. I never manage to get that much on a bobbin either spinning or plying, must try harder.

  2. OOOOHHHHH!!!! MEEEE????? Woohoo! And I didn’t even know it! What a nice surprise!!!! I think I am still in shock. :)

    Lovely, lovely spinning, your pal is lucky!

  3. Pretty! I still haven’t gotten around to the Andean plying yet. Life keeps interfering with my knitting/spinning time. blech.
