Have I ever mentioned that my mom is an awesome watercolorist? Well she is. Check proof below.
I have a few of her watercolors in my house (Ok more than a few) but this one went to my sister.
I bet you thought I was trying to draw attention away from my lack of knitting, well Bah you are WRONG! Below there's a photo of my first Afterthought heel. Twas knit toe up using a Turkish Cast On. I'll have to reknit the ribbing because it's a little bit loose which I really hate. But aren't those colors gorgeous? It's Tiny Toes by Interlacements.
I can hear you all saying, "Ok fine Bam, woo hoo knitting pictures, but WHERE, oh where is the spinning?" Well last night at Knit Nite, Lori brought her wheel and she was spinning (and plying) two really beautiful batches of superwash that she dyed herself. I didn't bring my wheel because I am having a hard time motivating myself to finish the gray (oh pardon me for a moment while I swallow back down the bit of hurl that came up at the thought) polypay I am STILL spinning. Mind you, it's making a very nice bouncy, navaho plied sock yarn, but it's SO BORING!! Seeing Lori work with all that pretty superwash made me want to get it over with, so I spun awhile. Let's face it, I need the practice.
Oh oh yeah, now when you look at Lori's blog, notice the yarn swift that her husband MADE for her. Yes I said her husband made that pretty thing. I'll let you know when they are ready to go up for sale!
