I love how Project Spectrum gives me guidelines and deadlines for my sock knitting and fiber spinning!
In fact, the looming arrival of May 1st pushed me to finish the Cheez Whiz socks. They are for me and I love them! What do you think?
I have also been pushing to finish spinning the Lorna’s Laces roving I got from Liz. It’s not yellow at all and only sort of orange, it’s more salmon and brown than anything, but it’s got a beautiful sheen and it’s been great to work with.
The fiber has been drafted:
And spun into singles:
And plied and turned into skanks:
I’m really pleased with the way this turned out. My spinning is definitely getting more even and this is thinner than most of what I’ve spun so far. There’s about 600 yards there – enough for a small shawl!
Now on to May! I’ll be knitting socks from this gorgeous Brooklyn Handspun, color Hawaii Joy.
And I’ll be spinning Grafton Fiber batts and Fleece Artist roving.
This whole Project Spectrum thing has really opened my eyes to the colors around me. In March I saw red and pink everywhere, in April everything was yellow and orange. Now the world is turning green!
