Hi all, The end of another weekend in not so sunny California. We had a little light rain but the Ark wasn't needed.
Saturday morning was the spinning guild and I was really looking forward to this because I had some questions about spinning the camel roving I purchased a week or so ago. Many thanks to Janel for her tutelage.
Here I am before the meeting spinning and watching them set up for the talk about wheel mechanics. Just zoning out and spinning away. I noticed how large my feet were when I saw this picture. Mrs. Twisted came with me this time and worked on her sweater. More about that in a little while. I brought the hank for show and tell. It feels like first grade all over again but some of the other projects were amazing. One was hand spun lace and some needle felting. I saw my first Cormo fiber also. They had spun sock weight and knit natural colored socks. Kim Burk was sitting next to me and took this of me after I talked about the roving and fielded questions about my new wheel.
My hank laying on the show and tell table. Nods to Lori Lawson for the fiber.
While at the guild I purchased two balls of roving. 8oz of Merino in colorway Midnight. This was hard to photograph but here is the shot. It's more black than it shows...
Also 12oz of Purple Merino/Tencel
Ruth AKA Dizzy Ewe had a good selection of fiber at a good price so how can I resist? :)
Mrs. Twisted has been very busy in the last few weeks. You saw the socks recently, here are the other FOs she finished. One completed today and the other had it's buttons put on.
The first one is the Sienna cardigan from IK Fall 2007
The yarn is Karabella Aurora 8 on size 9US Knit Picks circular
Notice the wonderful fagot lace stitch pattern on either side of the button band.
She went with my choice of buttons this time. A lovely vintage reproduction pewter design.
The other one is from Big Girl knits
Sexy Ribs Pull Over in RYC Silk Wool colorway Clay. She made a modification to make it a tank instead of the full sleeve. This was completed just minutes earlier.
