Just a quick post to say that I’m still alive and well. All of this working and kid-farming really sucks up time though. I finally finished the Luna Moth Shawl and it is blocking in the living room.
Here’s a close up:
The yarn came from Mama-E’s Ceyeber Fiber Crazy 8 Sock Club. And someplace on my desk or in a basket the label with the fiber content and color name is tucked away for safe keeping. I love green! This will be put into the Christmas stash.
Currently an alpaca/wool blend occupies my wheel. It may end up staying natural instead of taking dip in the dye pot. There some very pretty, soft variations in the yarn.
Each of my three daughters has laid claim to one of the bundles of roving from the fiber festival. I’m not sure yet how to proceed spinning these. Having no final project in mind leaves me with no idea of weight, plying, etc.
A second skein of Scout’s Marina Piccola arrived yesterday so hopefully the Print O’ The Wave Stole will see some action in the near future.
Finally, my Mom found a spinning wheel in a local thrift store near her home. It needs a new drive band and the brass hooks need to be replaced. Coincidentally, it is a Louet wheel, but the number is unknown. It came with three bobbins and it seems to work just fine. And the best part? She paid $20.00 for it! Let me hear a “Woot, woot!” for Mom. I’m trying to convince her to give it a try, but she said she’s going to send it on down here. As you can imagine, my DH is less than thrilled. Silly man, he just doesn’t get it. Night all!
