Isn't it great?
Now, I've been busy knitting samples, preparing submission proposals, and writing patterns, about which of course, I can't say a thing at present.
But, I'm also spinning! I took a bit of time to ply the leftovers from the Cotton Candy Corriedale, both with itself, and with leftovers from the Pink Corriedale. My youngest would also like a shawl, so hopefully this will round out in quantity what I have of the Pink yarn that I had spun up. She'd like a shawl a bit like her sister's, only rectangular, so we'll see what I can come up with once I have a bit of time to cast things on, but I plan on using these two yarns with the Pink.
My birthday shopping trip to Pam's Woolly Shoppe resulted not only in a new spindle, but in a somewhat impulsive buy of Rainbow Leicester Locks.
By the Fibreside was not only willing to teach me how to flick card these, but was also willing to lend me a flick carder. I have sorted the locks by colour, and have set aside the red, brown, black and pinkish grey bits for the next batch. I decided to work with the blues, yellows, and greens for a start. Unfortunately, a fair bit of the yellow locks looked pretty much felted, and could not be separated nicely from each other, but there was enough to get a fair bit of yellow into the mix anyhow.
Ideas I'm tossing around include clutch purse/bag or table runner. It's somewhere between a laceweight and a light fingering. Any ideas for me?
