Still spinnin

Monday, September 24, 2007

My one measly little picture:
This is all I have left to spin for my first bobbin of singles. I won't have a completely full bobbin, but it's half of the total of roving I had left. I'm excited to be half done (almost) but at the same time, that means I've got a whole half left! Ugh, I'm so ready to be done and move on to the next set of roving.

It's going well though, and I'm happy with it so far. I can't wait to be done and get to knit with it. I'm also dying to try a new plying method (not new, but new to me) I saw on Alyson's blog. There's a video on one of her older posts that she linked to from the Yarn Wench. (Video is here.) It looks really fun and easy, and I really wanna do it. I'm thinking of using the pink and yellow roving I've got. I think I can get sock weight spinning at the weight I am now, by doing the 3 ply. Because I don't know if I'll ever spin thicker than I do now. I'm used to it, and find it hard to spin any thicker...

Really spinning is all I've been doing. I picked up my black kidsilk spring things shawl las night, but I dropped a stitch, and it was late, so I just put it down again. I also picked up another sweater I was working on but I found a little beetle (not a wool eating bug) on it...so then I put it down. Ah the hazards of living in the basement. I swear there are so many bugs down here.

I also picked up my mad color weave sock today. I did a few rows but it was close to dinner so I didn't get much done. I'm on the heel, but I'm worried the sock won't fit....so I've been delaying it in case I end up having to rip...

Seriously though, I've done no other knitting. I've been so sick that I can barely sit up. We all have it and it really sucks for the kids, who have been barely sleeping. Anyway, that's also been why I'm not knitting. That and school.

Ah school...I'm still behind and getting progressively more so in my other class. One of the easy ones. I am spending so much time trying to catch up that I have neglected my other classes a bit. Soooo I really have to work hard to keep up. It's stressful and my current state of mind is that I feel so crappy, I don't care. Like I really just don't even want to do it.

Ok so off to do something productive. Yes I know it's 1 AM but I slept until 2pm and therefore am wayyy not tired. I leave you with a quiz...this is my result.







What Kind of Knitter Are You?




You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can't imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.http://marniemaclean.com

i hope you feel better. all i've been doing is picking up knitting projects, working on them for a little and putting them right back down. i did finish my shetland roving, but i have to get it off the bobbin and for some reason, winding onto a niddy noddy is cumbersome to me lol. glad to hear you're having fun spinning though.

Can't wait to see the spinning. Sock weight, huh? I'm not yet to the point where I've tried to predetermine yarn weight. Hoping that comes next.

Hope you're feeling much better...
