I hope not! I’ve got plenty more to show you. And since the stealth knitting will be gifted this weekend, I can finally start showing you what I’ve been knitting on Monday!! Woohoo!
But first, I’ve received some very kind gifts lately that I wanted to share. First, Lisa (dude, she’s knitting her daughter a wedding dress! Go look!), who was one of the winners during SOS had joked at the end of it all about sending me a tiara. Since I’m not much of a tiara girl, I’m glad she sent this instead!
Check out the “knitted” mug from Starbucks! And do you see the stitch markers?!?!
Bunnies!!! How cute are they?!? This all came when I was having a bit of a tough day and couldn’t have been timed any better. Thank you again Lisa! They are all wonderful!
Last weekend I also had another little spin in at my place in which we decided to do a little Secret Santa dealio. HWJF was kind enough to make the matches so that I got to play along, which I thought was very good of him to do (yep, keeper! I know!). My Secret Santa was Anne and look what she made for me!
A new box bag and storage pouch in blue silk (hello! Yum!) and a shopping bag all wrapped in a fabric bag (yay for eco friendly wrapping!)! The current stealth knitting quickly went into the box bag. And look what she made for the tree!
Isn’t it cute! Stuffed with Romney fiber *chuckle*! And yes, that is my Christmas tree and it is so small no one could find it when they came over. Thanks again Anne for all the great goodies! And thanks again to everyone who made for a great afternoon!
And now, on to the yarn. Back when I was developing my Seascape colorway, I dyed and spun up some superwash merino with the intention of doing my first large navajo plying project. The fiber got spun but sat on the bobbin for a bit while I took care of other spinning orders. At one point recently, in a fit of “I need that bobbin!” I finally did my plying. Here’s how it turned out.
I’ve been practicing navajo plying on the small bits of leftover fiber at the end of a bobbin for a while now and I think I’ve pretty much got it down pat. I’d like a little more twist control then I’m getting, but it isn’t terrible.
I think HWJF wants this yarn, but I’m not sure what I’ll do with it since it’s only about 250 yards.
I also recently finished my last DC sunrise order.
That’s about 500 yards of fingering weight in merino. This colorway still brightens my mood on a dark day. I may just have to spin some for myself at some point.
And since that was my last spinning order I’m available for custom spinning. Leave a comment for info.
On Monday, KNITTING!
