Finished Spinning   1 comment

This is 4 oz of Knitterly Things BFL in Bouquet. I had two ounces spun on the first bobbin and a little less than the two ounces on the second. The reason being is that where I’m still so new at spinning, I was spinning a more consistent yarn on the second two ounces. I had a feeling that it was way more than the first so I stopped. I then plied the two together.

Must remember some type of gloves next time to prevent possible yarn burn. I’m guessing about 140 yards or so. I know that the more I do it the better it will get. Trying to decide which of my pretty braids to spin next.

On the knitting front, I sadly frogged Girasole, but will be putting back on the needles very soon. Something just didn’t feel right about it from the end of Chart C on and thought that it would be easier just to start over than to tink back a few thousand stitches.

I finished Mom’s Diamond Gansey Socks. Typical me, forgot to get a picture of Mom wearing them. Mom has also decided that I’m only allowed to make her socks out of Malabrigo. Smart Woman!!!!

I started the Sunflower Socks and they are coming along and I’m also patiently awaiting a shipment from Numma Numma to start a fall sweater; a gorgeous Celtic cabled hoodie.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for my fibery fun!!!! Have a great day and Happy Knitting and Spinning!!!!
