from all of this spinning...
Wow, I had a passionate tryst with my spinning wheel yesterday and spun two different Pigeonroof Studio rovings. (OMG I am so far down the rabbit hole.) Then I washed and blocked two other skeins of handspun - I'm seriously thinking I could actually cast on and make...something? I'm thinking my three year old could use a funky hat! Suggestions welcome.
I cannot wait to wash the PR (see the wonkiness of the one on the right?) - it made all of the difference to soak it, the yarn blooms and the drape is delightful. I love having yarn hanging in my shower - Good Morning! (Thank you Kris for warning me not to weight it!:)
**If you are considering spinning, as a complete greenhorn I have found Krista at Pigeonroof Studios to be an absolute pleasure to work with - she doesn't take custom orders but she will honor a "wish list" - for the record, several of my "wishes" have been granted. Her roving is so soft and squishy plus she is so kind. I almost hesitate to mention my PR love because I hate to give up my source - hee hee!**
And because I mostly knit, I swatched some Madtosh for the Ingenue (did you see Plucky's?) and the gauge is waaay off, the Madtosh seems to be a very light worsted in my opinion, so maybe another February Ladies Sweater for now? Such decisions. The last FLS might have given me a case of carpal tunnel - hmmm, is God telling me I should be a sock knitter? Meanwhile, Morticia - I swear my Shetland Triangle is growing!
