at what I’m working on… 🙂
I’m working on finishing the Modern Lace Henley today. I’ve finished the body, working on the sleeves (which I’m making full length – I LOVE long sleeves and especially long lacy sleeves!)
I finished my second skein of wheel spun yarn (I’m ignoring the laundry in the background!)
It’s so pretty and yet so SHORT. I ended up getting 200 metres exactly from 4 oz of roving. I didn’t weigh the roving so I’m going by the weight I ordered. I haven’t taken it down from it’s drying hanger yet…the last thing I want is to pack up slightly damp yarn!
Naming it was difficult! Naming isn’t my strong suit, lol. I think of lots of names and then think they are silly 🙂 BUT…since I guess I must…I named this one ‘Sunset’. The shades of purple and pink just made me think of a sunset.
Especially when I wrapped it for skeining…
My goal for next time is to spin a sock weight/light sport. LOL…good luck to me! I’m thinking as a guide, I’ll unply some actual fingering weight and keep it handy to compare with. Honestly, this looked so thin until I measured it!
Miss Daisy spent yesterday with me…like right on me. I was hoping she was telling me something but nothing so far. She had shivers or some sort of thing happening all day off and on – was really hoping that was early labor. Could have been but it’s stopped over night. I’ll keep you updated!
Enjoy your day!
