I surprised myself this week when I realized that I now have three new skeins of handspun yarn to show off. It seems that once I admitted to having a problem with the plurking, I was able to step away from the keyboard long enough to get some spinning done. Not only that, but living 6 hours behind the East Coast means I go to bed much later then most folks. So when my plurky friends are in dreamland I often find the time to get even more done.
The first skein is Blue Faced Leicester that was a gift from my generous friend Naomi. The tag on the braid only had fiber content. I have no idea who dyed it.
The second skein is a Merino from The Yarn Wench in the colorway Hearth.
The final skein is some mystery wool that was also a gift from Naomi.
All of these are 3-ply yarns and are most likely going to be knit up into socks.
Speaking of socks, Summer of Socks begins tomorrow and I’m such a doofus. I still have two pairs of socks on the needles. There’s no way I can kick off the KAL with a new pair. Well, I could start a third pair but that would be bad. My aim is to finish projects this summer. Not create more UFO’s.
Only my knitting mojo seems to have left me. Not helpful. Not at all helpful. If you see it, please tell it to return home.
The spinning mojo is another story. I have been diligently spindling for at least ten minutes each day thanks to the support of my good friend loribird. We take spinning breaks from plurk together just to spin.
Those who plurk together, spin/knit together. Good times.
Happy Friday you all! Have a good weekend!
