I have been spinning, I promise. It seems to take forever, I have almost finished 3 ounces. I was hoping that 4 ounces will fit on the bobbin, as I have 8 ounces of fiber, and was hoping to divide it between 2 bobbins before I ply it. We’ll see. When I read other people’s blog about spinning, they seem to do much more and spin much more quickly then I manage. Sometimes I wonder if it is going to take forever. One tip I have picked up somewhere, (Apologies, I don’t remember where) is to divide your fiber in specific pieces, like 1 or 2 ounces. I have realized that that makes it much easier to know whether you have made progress or not. I seem to be getting somewhat more even, so that is something at least, and I do think I am getting faster. Now I do hope that it won’t all fall apart when I get ready to ply….. Sorry, no pictures of the spun fiber yet. But here are some over due pictures of MS 3:
And you know who tried to usurp it immediately?
Crab Dishcloth for Gma:
And you know who loves it?
And here is a quick look at the second cloth, cream, diagonal knit without holes:
The last one, the blue Heron is finished, but the photo is not off the camera yet. I will try to do that next time, as well as pictures of my spinning.
I do think I will have to play with the pictures a little. Not quite how I want them, but that will have to come later.
I have also been working on Casablanca recently. It is coming along nicely, though slowly. Of course, translating the files each week takes a little time. And I am also house hunting, which is pretty much taking most of 1 day per week. So knitting time is becoming somewhat of a premium, especially as I try to keep up with Tour de Fleece.
Anniversary got cut (literally). I knew there was a mistake, and I couldn’t find it. I had been thinking the yarn was wrong anyway, so I will retry it when I get yarn that wants to be it.
