For today’s post, I’m joining Ginny over at Small Things for the Yarn Along! Join us there, or leave a link in the comments below, showing off what’s on your wheel this week!
I’m still chugging along, trying to get through this fluff! That bit that’s tossed across the back of the wheel (a bit haphazardly, I might add) is all that’s left of the second half and then I’ll be ready to ply. Seems crazy, but I think a portion of this fiber is missing, because I’ve clearly got more fiber packed onto that first bobbin than I have on the second. I caught my 3-year-old walking around yesterday with some fiber wrapped around her neck like a scarf, so there’s no telling what else she may be stashing! But we’ll see what happens!
On the knitting front, my sweater is slowly growing:
It’s all mindless knitting in the round now, for another 10 inches or so, then I’ll separate for the back and front flaps. Or something. I don’t know, I haven’t read that far into the pattern. But as for what I am reading, the girls and I are slowly reading through the Marvelous Land of Oz. Maybe about a chapter a week. The chapters are a bit long for Marlee (the 3-yar-old), so it’s usually reserved for right before nap time or right before bed. We’re all loving it though, especially how General Jinjur’s Army of Revolt uses knitting needles as their weapons. My girls just think that means they get to grab all of my spare needles and pretend to knit while I’m reading. Whatever brings them back to fiber…
In other news, don’t forget about the Tour de Fleece team! We’re growing– we’re at 5 members now! Needless to say, you’ll have a great chance at winning a prize 😉
Happy crafting, friends!
