Like the new layout? Apparently in my bad blogging times Blogger came up with all sorts of new tools for making a blog look cool.
My goal is to blog at least once a week. If nothing else than to keep up with knitting (and other) projects I'm working on. I do like the slightly cliched WIP Wednesday, so let's start with that.
The most awesome Jackie of Feathers for Pleasure has been cleanin out her Mom's attic, and keeps coming across spinning stuff. She came by with a bag full of comercially prepped wool that I'm guessing is Corriedale. So I dyed some of it in a gradient and made a Tappan Zee
It's about 99% done, all blocked and the ends woven in, I'm just searching for the perfect buttons.
I also finally finished Jeff's absolutely gorgeous hand processed hand spun sweater!
This is how I spent my past Sunday, with more of the commercially prepped corriedale, a cup of coffee and my favorite spinning wheel.
After our friend Phil had blinged it out!
Ooh, maybe I'll ply it with the reddish roving I got from SAFF. Stretch it just a little more, and have a gradiented yarn like I made the Tappan Zee out of. . . hmmmmmmm.
How's that for blogging?
