On/Off My Spindles:
Team: Hopelessly Overcommitted
Event: Handspun Heptathalon
Finally crossed my first Finish Line yesterday morning with approximately 300 yds fingering wt yarn, Shetland "Forecast" colorway dyed by Spunky Eclectic. The color is all off and I can't seem to correct it. This is actually shades of blue, not green.
Other Non-Ravellenic Stuff:
I finished plying skein 5 of the Wensleydale fiber in the Rasputin colorway by Crown Mountain Farms this morning. It is worsted spun and chain plied and I got approximately 85 yds of 3ply. I was hoping for more but what can I say, I'm not spinning my singles on the same spindle I spun the first three mini-skeins on. I guess it makes a difference, at least this time.
On/Off My Needles:
Team: Diagon Alley Marauders
Event(s): Hat Dash, Charity Rowing & Stash reduction
First up is a dozen Preemie Hats for the Remembering Remy charity from this 2+ year old pile of Louet Gems mill end fingering wt yarn.
I cast on yesterday and have one and a half hats done as of right now. Will finish the second hat and start third tonight. There's over 900 grams of yarn here so one thing I don't have to worry about is running out of yarn!
