The above is a photo of the silk/Merino yarn I just spun. Lovely rock colours don’t you think? Or maybe the side of a barn? I have started spinning some silk/Tencel yarn. It is a beautiful sky blue colour.
I hooked more on Lost Soul yesterday and plan to do more today.
Two new books came in my mail: Spin to Knit and Finishing Hooked Rugs. Hope to find time to look through them today.
Spin to Knit is a replacement book that I have used before. It has a wonderful garter stitch pattern, Garter Scarf 1, in it that is knit from side to side, rather than end to end. I have knit that pattern at least three times now, adjusting length and width depending on the wearer. All three times it has been a hit. Great pattern! And very easy to do. Results in a nice warm scarf too.
Today’s plan of attack?
- visit with accountant re: business taxes (this could change my plan for the whole day),
- deposit cheque in bank,
- hook Lost Soul,
- ply the blue silk/Tencel and process it,
- watch another Fundamentals of Photography lecture or two,
- spend some time helping a friend.
