I have 4 bobbins full of singles!
So, for my second Magic Coffer Baby hat, I wanted the stripes to be in rainbow colors, using bits and pieces from my stash. The closest I have to yellow is some of my handspun. I thought it might be close enough, but it isn’t.
The other yarns are so bright, and the handspun is rather dull. Happily, I found I still had some piña agua fresca from a while back when I was doing done kool aid dyeing, plus a good amount of cream colored yarn.
It should be dry enough to knit tomorrow. In a way, I’m glad for the setback because I realized I only have 3 evenings to complete my spinning goal! Off to the wheel!
Ah, the project I’m so good at avoiding: carding and spinning about a pound of Cormo locks. Spinning these is my last fiber-related goal of 2014, so I’m giving it one last push. I could feasibly finish carding tonight, then spend 2-3 evenings spinning them up. Wish me luck!
This wee project is tempting me, though. It’s a Magic Coffee baby hat for some friends who are expecting in the Spring. I’ll only see them once before then, so I want to have at least a little something to give them in person.
The Wee Girl and I had the morning together without the Boy, and we started it out with a bit of shopping on Clement Street, specifically at Park Life and Green Apple Books. I found scores of amusing items…
My Honeybee Cardigan is dry and fits perfectly, but no pics yet, as I haven’t shopped for buttons yet.
With the sweater done, Instead of finishing another WIP, I’ve decided to whip up a last-minute Christmas gift.
I casted on last night and am already almost halfway done. I have almost 7 inches knit, and this cowl is meant to be 15 inches tall. I might make it shorter, I’m not sure yet. This is my second 5th Avenue Cowl by tenten knits; it’s very simple but really lovely, I think. The yarn is Madeleine Tosh Chunky in the Vermillion color way, left over from my Alpengluhen cardigan. It’s so soft and lovely to knit with!
