Baby steps

January 3rd, 2013 · 2 Comments

I’m making little tiny baby steps along the tracks of my crazy lace stockings.  I promise I won’t post a daily update picture, but I couldn’t help it.  I sat with this after work last night for about an hour or so.

Weee!  2″ now @ 44 rows. Guess I now know the row gauge is 22 rows/in.  Hahahahha.

Taking a break from the teeny tiny needles, I went back to spinning for Party Mix.  I’ve finished all the semi-solid yarn and have moved along to the multiple stuff.  I’m n-plying the single to come up with a three-ply yarn.  Found that one 4 oz braid of the merino/silk will fit on a single Golding bobbin.

This is the second of three braids to spin of the multi.  Have to say, I LOVE my Golding wheel.  I’m spinning this on the full sized baby.  I did this last night while watching the second half of The Hunger Games on demand.  I loved the books and found the move enjoyable.

Craft on!
