Spun

Today's knitting looks remarkably like yesterday's knitting. It's not though, promise! It's the second sleeve.



I have been going gangbusters on this stockinette stitch. It is so very enjoyable for me. As much as I enjoy the challenge of cables I could crank out stockinette or garter for the rest of my life and be very content. That being said, it would have to be quality, worthy yarn.

I did neglect to share with you some wonderful news. I took a spinning class with Barb Aikman at the Frolic and I am very impressed withy results!! Barb managed to set me up right and the fibre that we used was a superwash and the combination just clicked.





I'm going to fill this bobbin, then another one and then ply them and see what I've got.

I'm spinning lengths of plain cream, then lengths of cream spun with purple/blue/merlot. It'll be interesting to see how it plies up - I'm not doing any planning or measuring. I know, quite a departure from my usual controlling tendencies. Spinning is very liberating for me in that respect!
