I should have told you first thing on Monday that the spinning mojo is back but here it is Wednesday and I’m just letting you know. Sorry. I got caught up in Oscar fever, what can I say? Anyway, both Rosie and Lucy were back in business by Thursday night. Dale took Lucy to the hardware store and they fixed her up with a 16¢ washer that did the trick. Big spender that he is, Dale bought a spare in case this happens again. Meanwhile, I procured some cotton rope at a different hardware store and Dale helped me install Rosie’s new drive band.
With both wheels fully functional again I was able to finish some yarn.
This incredibly soft merino/alpaca/silk blend is something that I bought from Indigo Moon at SPA 2006. I’ve got about 975 yards and I’d like to make a shawl from this. I’m currently debating Seraphim or Icarus, I just can’t decide. I’d love to hear from those of you who have knit either of these shawls.
I also finished the Spunky Eclectic superwash. I’ve got 350 yards there and it’s probably sport weight. Any suggestions for what to knit with this? Because, you know, making yarn is nice but knitting with it is even nicer. Right, Margene?
And speaking of Margene, tomorrow is March 1st and, while I’ve done plenty of spinning, it’s time to get the knitting done for Twisted Knitters. It’s a tough job. Sigh. But someone’s got to do it.
