So here it is, almost a month after my last post again. I have been keeping busy though.
I wove a little blanket for dearest granddaughter as a baby shower* gift.
I think Carmen liked it.
(It was a lovely shower and dearest granddaughter will be a very well-dressed baby! There were so many adorable gifts.)
I finished spinning two batches of Spunky Eclectic's Little Periwinkles organic Merino fiber.
I wanted long color runs so I spun two separate singles of equal color sequences and plied them together. They didn't match up completely of course but were pretty close. I used a semi-worsted spinning draw and lightly fulled the yarn to finish it and I am really happy with how it turned out. I now have 229 g/593 yds. which should be plenty for a cardi and matching hat and/or socks for our little girl.
I was scrambling to work through some of my scoured fleece before it got too cold in the sunroom to work there. A stretch of warm days a couple of weeks ago was enough to finish a good chunk of it (good thing - it's darn chilly out there now.)
This is a Columbia fleece from Val at Wooly Wool of the West on Etsy. It is very soft and I enjoyed working with it a lot!
I also finished combing the CVM/Romeldale fleece that I had dyed last year.
I have lots of spinning and knitting ahead of me this winter.
*Carmen's sister hosted the shower and made this adorable diaper "cake". Those little flowers were made with sockies and the center supports are glass bottles. How cute is that?
