So that yarn I finished, well the second it was remotely close to dry enough, I wound it up and cast on. Here's the start of my Forest Canopy shawl. I am of course farther now. I like the striping effect that seems to happen with handspun. It's very cool. It's also a very fast knit on size 8 needles!See the leaves?
I got some roving in the mail yesterday that I ordered from the last Pigeonroof update. It's GORGEOUS. I want to spin them now lol. They are both more S. African fine wool. After spinning the cornucopia, it grew on me and the softness is great.
This one is 4 ounces in the color Jester. Love this one so much.
And this one is 3.7 ounces in Hydrangea. Seriously pretty.
I also got some yarn I traded for. It's louet gems sportweight and I have two hanks in this size, of 225 yards each. Then there are two cones of around 500 yards each. So plenty to make a top or two with. I'm still thinking about it.
Well that's all I've got for now. I have things to do today. My one good friend in the area is moving far away and we are going to have dinner later. I still have a gift to get her and something for her daughter, and I had plans to go to a yarn store. So we'll see what I get done, but now I need to go feed the kids and make some tea. I woke up with a sore throat and I'm hoping that I'm not going to get sick.
