The wool is taking top priority right now while the cool, relatively dry weather holds. 1,337 more words


Stitching, spinning and summer socks

I am quietly slip stitching away with shrimp-coloured yarn and slowly but surely my patchwork garden blanket is starting to take shape. I still have no plan for the edging but that’s fine; there’s no rush and I know inspiration will come. 1,034 more words

Postcard from the Spinning Wheel

Bogga, of Knitting in France, sure makes some beautiful rolags! These were merino, nylon, and Wensleydale. The yarn is a 3-ply: 2 plies from Bogga’s gorgeous rolags and 1 ply from some teal lap waste singles I had left over on my lazy cake–hey, you never know what might happen! 33 more words

This Week

Last week’s list:

  • Ride bike every day
  • Finish “Sugar Skull” spin
  • 2 repeats of Lighter than Perfume
    • This is actually pretty close to being done now, I’ve got a lot more yarn, but there will be a point at which the length gets ridiculous.
