Knitting · Spinning


Well. . .it’s been a while since my last post, and I really have no excuse for it.  I apologize.  But I’m here now, and here’s the latest.  (Links are to Ravelry, so if you don’t have an account, get one.  It is the best site ever.)

On my needles:  I have my first sweater!  I cast Wicked on a few days ago in Dream in Color’s Classy Happy Forest.  I only have two rows due to having to frog back to the beginning after discovering I was off on my count and my crossover stitches were in the wrong spots. . . ^o^  Anyway, hopefully I’ll have some time to myself with it later on today.

On my wheel:  I have some Corriedale dyed in reds, roses, pinks, and tans.  I bought a pound of it for an excellent deal!  (It was *slightly* felted from sun exposure, but with some TLC it spins up very nicely.)  So I sectioned it into three long bits, and will 3-ply it onto itself.  I have one bobbin done, two to go.  It’s such a nice day out, maybe I will be able to work on that too!  . . .ambitious, aren’t I?

On my mind:  My latest obsession is with buttons.  I don’t know what started it. . .oh wait, yes I do know.  It was Ysolda’s Verity.  After knitting it up, I was searching for just the right button to put on it.  In my search, I came across several good candidates.  Discovering one button inparticular that I really liked, I couldn’t let the others go.  So I got them.  And I love them.  But I don’t know what exactly will become of them.  I’m sure I will find some use for them, but for now, they will go into my newly formed button stash.  ^_^

So, that’s the latest.  I’ll try to post more when there’s more.
