Ahem…

I’ve been a bad blogger. I blame it on being busy with school, work, spinning, and knitting.

A new friend came to live with me! She is a Bosworth Spindle made from purpleheart. She weighs about 34 grams and spins like a tornado.

We are getting along together pretty well. She is even helping me spin this month’s spindler challenge. The theme is time travel. I have appropriately decided to spin a yarn inspired by the Back to the Future trilogy. The fiber is BFL in the Pulsar colorway from CorgiHillFarm.

WIP Wednesday

I have a spinning WIP to share. I’ve been navajo plying on the fly on my Threads Thru Time Turkish Spindle. Nothin’ like instant gratification =)

How to fight Hiccups

Yesterday, I ran into some problems with knitting socks on my addis. The only cure to my sock fever was to go back to my double pointed needles. I am working on some vanilla cuff down socks using the basic sock recipe (rav link) from Knitting Rules! by the Yarn Harlot. I using knitpicks Stroll Tonal sock yarn in the Canopy colorway. Cheers!

I went to check out some yarn prices for some lace projects. Yes, I have been bitten by the lace bug 😉 I managed to find some malabrigo lace for $9 a skein. Of course I bought three skeins!

Then I also helped someone with a destash on ravelry. I bought some Fiddlesticks Knitting Zephyr Laceweight Wool-Silk.
