Fiber update

Since it’s been warm, my knitting projects have been small. I finished two cowls, both the same pattern (Artistry Cowl) but different yarns.

I also got a bit of spinning done, for a change. One project was a mixed batt of wool and silk; it was roughly blended so it drafted in a chunky fashion and I just went with it. The resulting yarn is slightly thick-and-thin.

And this second one was on my wheel for many months – it’s 8 oz of superwash and while I was aiming for sock yarn, I don’t think the twist is tight enough and it’s definitely not very consistent in thickness… haven’t counted up the yardage yet.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
