Would I forget you?

I didn't pin out the Scrote yet, but I may have a photo tomorrow. We'll have to see how that goes. Perhaps the most proud I've been of some spinning yet.
The Merino from Marr Haven.
Yes, that's my WPI's Guide from Hornshaw Woodworks
I also finished some handdyed Shetland. I think this might end up being gloves or a hat (or both) for number five. He does so love him some camo.

Sorry that photo wasn't as clear as it could have been, but it was early!

I have blocking and sleeve knitting to do so I can start a new project, but my hand hurts. I knitted for HOURS yesterday to get that scrotum off my needles so I'm going to let my stiff hand relax for part of the day and go to the store with my man to get him an angle grinder (no idea what that is). See ya'll soon!

Oh and I'm going to pick out my next spinning project. Any votes? Sherbet colored Suffolk sock yarn? Or Sunset colored BFL laceweight? I'm having some trouble making a decision (I know big shocker).


  1. I think you should do the Sherbet Sock Yarn. I can't wait to see it. I am in the process of spinning some Merino Tencel blend that I am hoping to Navajo ply and make a scarf or hat for winter.

  2. Yum -- love the merino. Very pretty jewel tone colors including the purple, hehehe!

    I second the vote for sherbet sock yarn. Summer and sherbet just go together, but maybe I'm saying that cause I'm burned out on laceweight :)

  3. I see so many different WPI tools, in different shapes. How do they stay consistent? How wide of wrap is it supposed to be? I'd like my husband to make one, but I've seen everything from 'just wrap it around a ruler' to skinny dowels, and now yours, which looks rather chunky. And then, to make me more confused, one commercial yarn I was considering was given 2 different wpi on two different websites (and in both cases, they say the info is from the manufacturer....). My head spins...


I can't figure out how to respond to comments because blogger is funkay. Thanks for leaving one anyway!
