Hello, haven't posted for a few days...been busy spinning well trying to.. My latest adventure into it hasn't really worked out that well. Have tried spinning corriedale in four different colours, the aim being to spin enough for some socks....just realised how much spinning it takes..the skein below is only 128 metres with 16wpi's. Only problem is/was think that I have overspun it, though managed to get some twists out by weighing it when drying. Also it seems a little bit harsh.
But very colourful!!!!
Anyway, what I would like to know is how does one make a blog more interesting without becoming too indulgent. Read lots of others and there does seem to be a knack to it rather than just blethering on. BUT
Well pleased, its the BFL that I spun recently (piccy below) and I managed to actually knit with it...don't laugh, first spun fibre was big little big little...but managed to get some continuity with it. Those peps that don't spin may be thinking this womans lost the plot...believe me...the feeling of elation ...whoo----hooo! Oh I don't care. I'm happy and I shall wear it to my hearts content next week 'cos its going to be CCCCOOOLLLDDD!!!
Oh the pattern is from Spin to Knit.
