Yop (Week 15) and Spinzilla update
Spinzilla is over as of 11:59pm Sunday night and I was able to spin seven one ounce skeins.
I spun one single, and the others are two plies.
I have had the BFL fibre for two years, waiting until I felt I was a better spinner before using it. It spins like butter - and is so soft to work with.
Now that the Thanksgiving weekend is almost over I can get the skeins washed and then start adding them to my sock yarn blanket.
Speaking of the sock yarn blanket I did get a few more squares done this week as well. Total: 770/800!
I worked last week subbing for the Handwork teacher so I got to help students from Grade One to Eight - knit, crochet, cross-stitch, and sew (both hand stitching and machine). I did get a bit of knitting done during lunch breaks on my charity knit socks.
I am determined to pick up and get going on my sideways sweater this week....but I fear the sock yarn blanket will lure me into its cozy, almost finished, light at the end of the tunnel, I have handspun to add, web of knitting euphoria.
Oh, and I did finish my mosaic socks and I have worn them ALL week. I love the fit and the colour.
