~I spun a few more silk hankies and then wound the singles into a center pull ball and then plyed them on the Lendrum. Is it cheating to ply spindle spun singles on a wheel? It’s a very tiny skein but it’s my first ever silk and I’m damned proud of it.
~Have you contributed to Claudia’s Ride yet? There are some great yarn-y and fiber-y prizes to be had, not to mention the over all good feeling you get by supporting such a worthwhile cause. Go on, you know you’ve been meaning to get to it.
~Erin has two new colorways inspired by my Eye Candy Friday photos! One is Lilacs:
And the other is Daffodils:
I think they’re gorgeous and I’m thrilled to have provided Erin with the inspiration for these yarns. Are you going to buy some? Tell her Carole sent you and you’ll get a special discount.
~Remember the Mad Weave socks from Sock Madness that you all liked so much? The pattern is now available for free at Tina’s blog. Speaking of Sock Madness, I won’t be competing in Round Two. Instead, I’ll be co-hosting with Hillary. Squee!
~Speaking of worthwhile causes, I knit four squares for the Rebuilding Greensburg project. Lois knit a square, too, and the five of them are winging their way to Laura as we speak. Err, write. Err, read. Whatever, I’ve mailed them. There’s plenty of time for you to knit and mail a square, too. Just saying.
