Halfway there!!!

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Ok so tonight, while listening to Lime and Violet, my new internet podcast obsession, I finished spinning the first half of my pink merino roving. Here it is on the bobbin, all pretty and thin and smooth. I'm so glad to be half way done with this seemingly massive amount of spinning. I know it's not, and I've got much much more ahead of me with my plans for spinning 8 ounces into enough for that Dragon shawl...
Here is the little pile of what's left for the other half and then I will ply!
This is the project I cast on I believe Monday night. It's the Ms. Marigold vest from Zephyr. It's going super fast and I can't wait to finish it. This yarn is sooooo soft and gorgeous, and a tiny bit shiny. I should have this done in no time. After the length of it is knit, just the arm and neck holes need finishing. Which really isn't much.
I also starting spinning another bobbin but it's not of the pink merino. I was just getting toooo tired of the pink, I needed a break. I have plans to get more bobbins though so it's ok, and there isn't much of this one. So it'll be a lot faster to spin. Pics of that will come later though because it's not even enough to take a picture of.

That pink merino is looking mighty fine!!

That vest is definitely going super fast!

Wow that is going insanely fast. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.

Are you going to ply them together or do the Navajo ply you talked about? I'm excited to get a wheel just to try that.

Even though the pink bobbin doesn't look full, I know it's got a lot of yarn on it! Laceweight just takes a lot less space. Way to go, Hattie!

I am not a pink person but that look beautiful! I can't wait to see it all knitted up! Thanks for the help with the sweater patterns. I am pretty sure I am going to try and knit up a couple from the two sites you sent me. I just hope I am not jumping in over my head.
