The cooler weather has kicked the knitting and spinning into high gear. I realize I'm knitting on my first real "garments" for myself this year. I'm not counting shawls and socks here, kids.
I scavenged a bit to get a sweater's worth of this Hello Yarn Club offering from May 2009 - this is "5 Plum Pie" in lovely Falklands wool. I've spun up enough for a sweater, and I still have about 1.5 pounds left. I accidentally cornered the market on this.
And I was anxious to get it on the needles:
Body done, sleeve number one is almost done! hopefully I will have a new sweater by the end of the week!
Also, the spinning:
(Hello Yarn - "Spring Loaded", "Fresh Start", and "Kale")
(Hedgehog Fibers - gift from weetsie! - Merino/Silk blend, "Glow")
(Fantom Farm Fibers)
....and I finally got the loom warped:
That's some 8/2 Tencel, set to be (hoepfully) a holiday-gift scarf. But as my first attempt on the floor loom, we'll see how it ends up.
Alright! promises, promises....I'll post more frequently :)
