Taking care of a weepy sick kid (pre-8 p.m.) and catching up on 24 (post-8 p.m.) aren't really conductive to knitting or spinning...but I do have a little bit to show...


More merino from HPY. Very thick and thin -- this was the first time I was trying to spin a thicker single, not intending to ply it. I'm still not sure what I should do...ply it, or steam it? Here's what it looks like plied:


Also, aaaaaaahhhhhhh, my alpaca came in the mail on Saturday from the lovely Hooch:


Another decision....ply the colors with themselves, or ply the brown and white together? Hmm.

FOs #107 & 108

107: earflap hats in handspun cormo (see below, too lazy to link) and 108: can't talk about it. Secret FO. I'll fill in the details here later.

Okay Jenn, here you go. I can't talk about this stuff, but I can show you pictures. ;) Amongst the projects on my (many) needles....

Something lacy, on very tiny needles....


...something cable-y, on bigger needles...


...and something mindless:


...although the mindless thing isn't entirely mindless...I managed to screw it up and have to spend too much time tinking. This was a week ago and I haven't touched it since...but I need to.

you guessed it, more spinning

Really, I do still knit. I have five things on the needles. But this is what captured my attention this past week:


I thought I might spin it a little bulkier than usual, but it had other ideas.


The pictures really don't do it justice. I was so taken by the colors the whole time I was spinning it. Look, we match:


The colors are just so amazing. Deep violets, berry-winey colors that I can't describe...I decided to navajo ply it to kind of keep the colors together, but I'm second guessing myself. I'd love to see what it would have looked like as a 2-ply. This photo makes it look ore purpley than it really is.

technical difficulties

Man, for the record, I love my web filtering system and I wouldn't be without it, but GAH, the filter and Google just do not get along. It's making me batty. I keep having to exclude Googe IP after Google IP to be able to log into Blogger, watch YouTube videos, etc....just, GAH.

In other news:


I have time to spin again. Aaaaaah.

I've been knitting since 01/05, spinning since 07/06. Mmmmm, yarn.

Li, eh?
