What's been going on besides a lot of work?
I got a package from Robin, I won a prize on her blogiversary contest. Yay! I like surprises. She sent some wonderful handmade soap, and a flip flop stitch marker that she made, 2 cute sheepies, a note pad, a nature CD, and the Knitting for Good book. Thanks so much Robin! Your package made my day. :)
And look at my super thin singles!! I've still been spinning away since the thumb is still not up to par for knitting/crochet. This is my Merino/Angora that I've had for a while & was waiting until I learned how to spin better before I attempted it. This is some nice stuff, really soft & it has a nice soft fuzz to it. I'm in the process of plying it now. I'll post finished photos hopefully this weekend! This is my thinnest yarn yet! I'm very pleased even though I still need to work on my consistency. My goal is to be able to spin an entire skein of yarn with very little difference in thickness.
Here we have my Gypsyknits (from Kathy) BFL roving ready to go next. I want to try navajo plying with this. I've been practicing & I think I've got it down now. My other Robin friend showed me how to do the navajo plying last fall & I've been wanting to give it a try. :)Hope everyone has had a good week, one day left before I get a WHOLE weekend off! Yay!
