I was restless yesterday…wanted to start something new even though I have the blanket to finish AND the carpet AND the socks AND the shawl. Yeah. LOL. I managed to work on the blanket squares for a while first and they are getting there. Another day of work to finish the blanket I predict. And I will finish the carpet. Later.
I tried spinning with a drop spindle yesterday, for the first time. The fleece hates me, to begin with…I suspect the spindle may hate me too! Anyways, not the most successful attempt but I could see improvement happening quickly. Makes me truly appreciate a beautiful hand spun skein of yarn!! LOL. Definitely worth paying for! 🙂
The Malabrigo I’m using for the Hedgerow Coat is so buttery soft! Georgeous stuff. I will definitely look at making more things for myself out of it. This is my first time knitting with it 🙂
It’s super cold out today….Husband cannot work, they have an ‘extreme cold’ warning on. Yet they say it will warm up a lot by the end of the week? We’ll see.
