This came from these. Yesterday I spun a teal Peace Fleece single, plied it with my Mystery yarn, knit up a shoulder yoke thing, decided the teal overwhelmed the mystery, and unravelled and unplied it. And from this I have learned a valuable lesson: SAMPLE YOUR FREAKING YARN, LADY. Next time, I will sample. Now […]

Hooray, hooray! Look what I just got from Melissa Moustacherides! I don’t know how I could possibly match something this fabulous! I’ve already spun up the batts. I’m going to spin up some Peace Fleece roving–a little too lumpy by itself, but I think it’ll be fabulous plied with this crazy yarn, and that’ll tie […]

Cuckoo for Cuckoobatts!

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

I’m about to leave for vacation, so I can’t list them yet, but I just spent the last 2 days counteracting the fabulous massage I got on Monday by cranking away at the old carder to produce these honeys: I’m leaving around 4am for almost 2 weeks aboard the Marco Polo with Kristi on a […]

This is what happens when you twist before joining

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

My original plan was for a little abbreviated pullover vest out of this stripy handspun I made. But a couple inches in, I realized I had twisted my work before joining. Instead of ripping it back (I’d already ripped the yarn once, and I’m trying to be more civilized about frogging handspun), I figured I’d […]

Half a Pound o’ Handspun!

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

Sugarfoot is recovering from illness, so I’ve been holing up in my room with her and various craft projects. I’m keeping her separated from the other cat so that I can neurotically monitor her food and water intake, which is vexingly low, especially since I’m pretty ignorant about cats–but I called the emergency vet for […]
