Wooly wooly wool wool

Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

Here’s how the Hello Yarn Big Top superwash merino that I drafted whole turned out: My original plan with the whole-strand drafting was to maximize the length of each color span, making stripy yarn. I was going to leave it a single to prevent any muddying of the colors, but on second thought, I think […]

Happy accident. I hope.

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

So, I’m working on this new pattern with some self-striping handspun I made. It was supposed to be one thing. But I’m knitting it in the round on a needle that is really too short to hold it, so I don’t notice until 3 inches in that I’ve twisted the stitches. So instead of ripping […]

Can’t write. Knitting.

Thursday, April 12th, 2007

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! That is all. Back to knitting. If I can finish 3 WIP today, I get to blog about. How desperate am I for fun when I get rewarded with blogging? Here’s my newest Cuckoobatt on etsy. It’s called Mystery Wrapped in a Riddle because I’m a big dork and each one is a nutty […]

Sidelined project

Friday, March 30th, 2007

Pre-Fiber Stashalong Purchase

Sunday, March 25th, 2007

This box came on Friday, stuffed to explode. Here’s what was inside: 2# of fleece from a llama called noche. Soft and beautiful, like the beautiful, beautiful hair of a beautiful, beautiful lady. Can’t wait to try it! And also: 9# of fleece from a Rambouillet/Cormo/Corriedale called Ray. You can get an idea of how […]

What should I make?

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

I spun this bouncy goodness from Hello Yarn fiber: Color’s a bit washed out by the sunlight here. With its source fiber. I thought I might try to navajo ply it; either that, or keep it a single. But what to make?

Procrastinating

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

I’m rotten with procrastination. I really can’t stand myself. Maybe I should buy a book on self-hypnosis (yay! all new fake self-help procrastination) and zap myself out of it. Today’s form of pathetic and supremely boring form of procrastination involved HOURS surfing spinning and fiber sites from the new Spin-off. I am so fucking dull, […]
