I've been a neglectful blogger lately.
Yes I have been spinning everyday. Some days only 30 minuets some much more but at least a little each day. From my last post you saw some of my singles. This is the first real plied yarn. Dyed merino roving that turned into 110 yards of soft 2 ply purpley success.
It worked up to lite sport weight. I have to keep working at it to get fingering weight. I know it's getting there. About 15 WPIs
Mrs. Twisted has been knitting like crazy and she finished the 2nd Pomatomus sock.
She finished a sweater last week but I don't have pictures yet.
She cast on another sock last Wednesday and finished it after a few modifications to the pattern. Lily of the Valley made from Colinette Jitterbug.
Next was the shipments of two sock clubs.
Jen from Woolgirl sent Zen sock yarn this time that looked a lot like the yarn from the Semi-solid yarn I wanted from the Zen club. Two patterns, a heart stitch maker, hot chocolate, a project bag, and some candies.
The other club is the Yarn Tree sock club. This month came from the Thirteen Mile Lamb and Wool Co. An organic yarn from 50% Moorit and 50% white sheep dyed with cochineal dye.
Soft as buttah and so rich in color.
Today we took a little scouting trip today (Saturday) "The Button Store" in West L.A. We were looking for a source for buttons and this was just what we were looking for. Vintage buttons in every style you could want. They had modern as well as vintage but the enameled and specialized buttons will entice us to return again.
I also bought this WPI gage on Etsy last week. I named her Vicky because I know she wishes she was a Vicu~n~a.
I cast on and did a few rounds of my sweater and Mr's twisted in in the middle of another sweater herself but no pictures of either yet.
