Hello peps....its Monday just finished dusting and tidying up after weekend. Not much knitting done as had preggie DD and SIL around yesterday.....and don't want her to see what am knitting. So had to do something and managed to ply up the spun merino that has been sitting around.
Its luscious fuchsia pink and turquoise blue...but once plyed the colours seem to be a lot darker.
Am still on a very big learning curve re the actual spinning itself. Seem to go along at a nice consistency of thickness and then goes stupidly thin and sometimes stays too thin but have managed to spin this to 11/13 tpi's.
Does anybody else get blogging stress....I see what all gorgeous knits others have managed to knit etc and want to do this pattern/that pattern/use this yarn...buy that fibre sometimes its all toooooo much.
But then the beauty of blogs and of course "forums" is the inspiration it gives you.
I sometimes wonder if I would do so much knitting if I didn't have the camaraderie of other like minded people....and it is lovely to be able to show what one has knitted etc....there is one blog I think Dances with Wolves....and at the moment Lene is doing a beautiful fairisle jumper called Henry...her work is wonderment. I will have a go one day....but for now my knitting time is being used.......laters all x
