…and an epic catchup post as well.
May was a terrible month for me and the stress sent me to the interwebs for some shopping therapy.
Serious fiber therapy… 7 braids!!!!
Up first: Nest Fiber Studio, “Inlet” on BFL
2. Spunky Eclectic, “Glacier” on Merino/Silk
3.Spunky Eclectic, “Mystic Springs” on BFL
4. Juliespins, “Apple” on BFL
5. Juliespins, “On the Verge” on Superwash BFL
6. Juliespins, “Take me Back” on Superwash BFL
7. Juliespings, “Bright Semolina” on BFL
so of course I had to start spinning, otherwise my bin of fiber was going to overflow!
Loop Batt: Merino/Bamboo
some in progress pictures:
finished yarn, 256 yards of a worsted/aran weight (n-ply):
The finished yarn turned out to be 155 yds of an aran weight, n-ply.
I’m hoping for a 3ply fingering weight. I’ve finished two of the plys and I’m not sure it’ll be as fine as I want, but it should work.
AwesomeSister was dyeing yarn for her epic blanket project and dyed some (more) fiber for me.
On mixed BFL, it is soo pretty.
Whew… let’s take a quick break here.
Knitting and Crochet
my cabled socks are going super slowly. I’m about to drop the side cable on the foot to make the sock end faster.
2) 2@at bed socks
I’m going to switch to one at a time, I just need these to be finished faster.
3) Summer sweater
heh, silly picture. I’ve finished both the fronts and the arms. I’m working on the back of the bodice and then it will look more like a sweater.
1) Kitsune Fox
2) iPad Pillow
Seriously silly until you start using it. I almost need a 2nd one for my living room. It is the most useful thing I’ve made this year.
and it works as a doll seat as well
4) Spinning slippers
Katie isn’t feeling very well today, but has been relaxing the rest of the week.
