Well, this week was mostly about spinning - and I am spinning 100 gms fine so it seems to be taking forever.
None-the-less here is my progress. I split it into about 50 - 2 gram slivers (25 of each colour)
and so far so good:
I did manage to spin a little every day so I am still spinning with Tour de Fleece. I plan to chain ply this when I am done (if I am ever done) so that I can keep the colour changes separate.
I knit a section of the sampler shawl with homespun I showed you last week - tada!
I managed a couple of more tiers on the diamondback socks but not enough to warrant a photo. AND, I did cast on another pair of Tour de Sock socks, but when I say cast-on, that is all I've got, cast-on stitches, not even joined the round up yet.
I frogged the sixteen inches of progress on my gray sweater (for the second time) because clearly the alpaca wool and the gauge I was using were not working together. I will now hunt out a new pattern for this yummy soft wool. I knit about four inches at the music festival on Friday afternoon, and then frogged it at the Friday evening concert. My great-nieces thought this was quite fascinating (and I think they thought I had lost a few marbles).
But the piece de resistance was the hemp pot holder (chinese seal for sheep) I started and finished over the thirty hours I spent listening to music at the folk festival on Saturday and Sunday. I was using stash and ran out of hemp before the final border, but hey, it's a pot holder, not something to hang in The Louvre!
Sometimes with great-nieces on my lap!
They seemed impressed with the speed in which I knit so I think I redeemed myself after the whole frogging incident of Friday night!
