New Spot

I decided to start a new blog so you can find me here.

I hope to see you all there!

Been Busy...

I have been knitting.

This is my handspun Pampas under way.  I love this knit but it is time consuming when you are beading plus it is not something I can work on in the car while waiting for school to get out unless I have finished the beading rows, so I guess it is kind of stop and go knitting.
I also started Flutter in Yarn Chef Creme Brulee. It is much farther along but really just looks longer so not much to see.

I dyed this for my next lace project, Nefertiti.

I have started spinning it but it is far from done.
I did finish spinning these 4 one ounce bundles into...

Into this yarn.  A 2ply with almost no matching up of the plies.  I want to take the colors to their extremes and this really seemed to.

And this...

Into this 3ply.

I think I want to make socks out of this since I got enough yardage out of it but it seems almost too pretty for socks.

It's Done!

I am so excited.  Aeolian the 2nd is finally done.  I save finally because I have been so sick that I couldn't finish the last few rows for days.  But now that I am on the mend it is done and blocked.

The colors came out how I had hoped and the red even changed where I wanted it to.

I even liked it enough to take a modeled shot.  And not one of those arms out, backside ones.

I also finished spinning the yarn for Pampas.

I am a little shy on yardage per the pattern so I will just have to make sure I end soon enough to do the other border and bind off.

Here's a close up.

I also decided on beads that are on the way but not here yet so knitting is at a standstill for now.

Since I have no knitting to work on I am spinning.  I am currently working on the AllSpunUp spin along fiber that I got.

The color is great and it is superwash merino so I am going for a 3ply sock yarn.  We will see how close I come.  I almost always do 2ply so this will be fun to see if I can get the singles thin enough for my finished yarn.

I also bought some great new patterns like Nefertiti so I need to dye and spin some more lace weight.
