The night of September 14th, 2011, was the night where I dug out a pair of knit socks, and wore them throughout the night, it was THAT cold! The days before were humid, and hot, and then the temperatures dropped. I'm not complaining!
This month is looking good where spinning is concerned. Here's some finished yarn, which was a joy from start to finish. I loved looking at the fiber, and it was nice to spin too. It's by no means soft as butter, but soft enough. I only regret not having had more of it.
I LOVE this yarn!
Wild Hare Fiber Studio : superwash 58s wool top (it’s a blend of breeds from sheep in the Midwest, from a US mill) colorway: Lithos
This yarn is chain plied, 318yds.
I want to use it for a shawl, but it's not enough on it's own, so I'm going to spin several other yarns, and find out which one will go with it best. I'd like to spin some natural fiber as well. I have lots of it, for instance, some lovely white Cormo (which at this point I have no idea where it is), some variegated brown BFL, some grey Gotland, dark brown Alpaca, and many more. It's fun to dig into my fiber stash. :o)
I've been knitting too, but not as much. It comes in waves.
I've also done some "Spring cleaning" in my Ravelry queue. I had 30 pages full of projects, and I was going through them one by one, to find out if it's likely for me to knit them, or unlikely (delete). At the moment I feel once again a little overwhelmed with the constant input of new patterns, when I have so many projects lined up already, I really want to do. I really hate it, when I can't decide what to do next, because there's too much choice.
It's a pleasure to eat soup again, now that it's gotten colder. Here's on of my favorites, garlic soup with soup pearls, which we have only now and then. (the soup pearls that is).
And do you think the boys like their occasional bull winkle treat?
It's so special, that Denny only chewed it a little, before he started to hide it.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
