Is Fall Inspiring for Spinning?
After knitting at the library on Monday, I sat down and spun one of the gifts from Pixie. She gave me some beautiful Louet Corridale:
Aren't those colors great? I couldn't help myself and spun up the whole pile of teal roving in one sitting.
And to relax I had to have some spinning oil. He-he-he...
Hermione did not approve. ;-)
So, here is the Corridale:
And all ready to knit:
But I am also still knitting - don't worry. Of course on the Christmas gifts. After the hassle with not enough yarn for a little cardigan (another first attempt - this is the third project where I have some trouble), I had to toss the half finished project aside. Don't you hate that? Thank goodness for hubby and his willingness to rip.
So, I went out and bought new yarn - a different brand and enough this time. And I changed the pattern, too. I'll probably knit the Swing Thing eventually, but now I am making the Haiku. It's a great pattern because you can use any yarn. You make a swatch and then you calculate with your gauge how many stitches you'll need to cast on, etc. Has some math but not too bad. It is knitted sideways - very cute. AND supereasy, mostly garter stitch:
Yarn: Jo-Ann Sensations Bellezza Collection Dolcetto
Needles: US #5
And here is a Fall-related quiz I found this morning.
|You Belong in Fall|
Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times... You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings. Whether you're carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you
Hmm - how true. I really like the change of season a lot. And I can't wait to bundle up in more than just a T-shirt. It's still pretty warm around here - in Georgia. This morning on my walk to the office, I had to take my jacket off. Go figure - I'll never wear a chunky sweater around here, dangit! ;-)
