Spinning, Dyeing and Overcoming FearsNovember 14, 2008
This week has been quite a triumphant week for me, fiber-wise. It began with my dyeing a few tops of BFL:
I then dyed another, smaller top and forgot to take pictures of it because I was so wanting to spin it up!
I wanted to spin a single but with a barber-pole effect – I think I accomplished my goal!
In retrieving these pictures, I realize I had not posted photos of my version of the UltraLight Lisard, which I had mentioned in the last Podcast, here is a photo:
And this is not all I’ve done this week! I also knitted just a little of the Kenobi. I now have the front and collar to complete and then on to blocking and finishing.
And finally, my proudest milestone of the week, knit-wise, is overcoming my Fair Isle issues. I still have much to learn of course and even more to refine, but I am quite pleased with my results so far.
Of course, I have also Podcasted this week as well and would you believe, I even managed to keep up with this weeks chores? Now ask me how much sleep I’ve had.
