I did finish my Rusted Root.
Apologies for the crappy-in-the-bathroom-mirror shot. I still need The Sporty One to take a good pic for me. I really love it! It fits great and it's such a cute pattern. I can actually see myself making another one, but maybe I will switch out the lace pattern or something to mix it up a little. I highly recommend the pattern. It's really fun and easy!
I've also been working on a lace project. Here's a little peek.
I have a row of tinking to do and then a new bind off and I will be finished with it. More info later on that one.
I've been spinning some more too. I cannot believe how much I enjoy it.
This is an attempt at a chunkier yarn.
I tried another thicker yarn using a modified long draw (I think). I used a pastel roving and plied it with plain white mill ends.
With the white in there, the colors are very soft. I might try a Baby Surprise Jacket with it. It's quite cute in person.
And finally, my first thread plied yarn.
I had some Karaoke that I got in a class with Abby at The Spinning Loft. I plied it with some sewing thread and now I have about 440 yds, which I hope will be enough for an airy scarf. It's really soft and the colors are really saturated. I think it will be pretty. Now to find the right pattern.......
