Somewhat encouraged by my progress in taking on and finishing long-standing knitting projects, I pulled out my other Kauni sweater. I found that I’d tucked it away a few rows short of binding off the first sleeve. I finished that up and even started the second sleeve!
Nice huh? I can live with the lack of mirror imaging in the color striping on the two sleeves. It doesn’t bother me. And I do love these three colors! Last night I decided to see how far I’d progressed on the second sleeve and counted the bands. Then I did this..
Ugh. I picked up different number of stitches on the two sleeves! I’m guessing I did 3 for 4 on the first and 2/3 on the second Not doing so well on the knitting. Oh well.
Doing much better on the spinning! What with the fancy new wheels around here, you have to know I’ve been spinning a bit. I spent Thursday night getting to know the new girl. She spins as well as she looks! Smooth is an understatement. Quiet too! We filled up our first bobbin together.
Fiber is ITW BFL in the club color Fierce & Flawless. Its not quite as bright in real life as it is in this iPhone shot. Its really pretty though and spun effortlessly.
Yesterday after work and a trip to the Rec Center where I use the gym as the kids play in the game room, I made progress on the fiber for Party Mix on La Croce. She too spins like butter!
Fiber is also ITW, but this time Merino/Silk blend in Children of Time colorway. I’m going to n-ply. I have about an ounce left and hoping to jam it all on this bobbin.
