Perfect Sunday morning. 🙂
It started with some porch spinning. This is the fiber I dyed last week – it’s coming out more aqua than blue, which is a surprise, but not a bad one. I am still learning how colors change as they are drafted, spun, plied, and knit. It’s all fun.
Here’s Reyna, all finished and blocked. I took her over to the shop yesterday, with mixed feelings. If it doesn’t sell, I might keep it. 🙂
This is the yarn I finished yesterday (it was a day of finishing things, I guess!)
It is 4 ounces of coopworth in the salpiglossis colorway from Purple Fleece. It is a thick yarn, between an aran weight and bulky weight, I would guess. Someday it will be a bright, warm hat.
Yesterday afternoon I also went to the Whorls and Purls gathering at the Purple Fleece, which was fun. Lots of amazing things happening on needles and wheels over there. I did 9of course) make a small purchase – because there simply isn’t enough blue, green and purple in my world. And I got a bobbin, so now I can either work on more than one spin at a time OR do a traditional three play… Or even finish up a two ply without having to stop and skein the yarn to empty the bobbin. Such a simple tool that will open up many possibilities for me.
Which reminds me, I don’t think I shared with you what happened Friday.
Don’t worry, it isn’t bad. It’s about the mail.
The fiber I ordered from Three Waters Farm arrived, not even a week after I ordered it!
So instead of being almost out of fiber (which really was true!) I now have 4 beautiful braids tucked away, and still have three months of the Roving of the Month club at Purple Fleece coming my way. And I still have about 6 ounces of undyed fiber to play with.
And some knitting to do. Shawls are coming along, I cast on the 4th one, so there is plenty of variety for my fingers. 🙂
I’ll leave you with this phone picture I got in Bucksport yesterday – a gorgeous day!
