I am not including a photograph of my shawl for Ravellenics…because it has not grown since the last photo. I have been plagued by these weird should and neck aches, I use a memory foam support pillow so I don’t get these anymore…so it was weird. Then I was waiting in the doctors office for mom to finish her stress test, knitting away on my shawl, hunched up trying to get these tiny stitches to do what I want, and realizing, “Shoot, that’s why my neck hurts.” So the shawl went into the, “When I get better at knitting I will try this again.” Or more Likely, “mess around with this every now and again until I deem it done.” Either way the shawl is not going going to be finished anytime soon.
My Spin along went very well! I am very happy with my 300+ yard skein of rainbow yarn. It is beautiful and so very sparkly. (I have to figure out how to photograph sparkles so they show up, I’m working on it.) I also have my Unicorn Fluff and Faery Dust Skein spun and washed at about 150 yards.
Again, I really love how this skein turned out. Before long I hope to pick up my spinning for the breed study again with a combination of breeds and non-animal, non-plant material spins. I recieved a Vegan Box not that long ago and I’ve used the fibers for demonstrations. I have not taken the time to spin the vegan fibers to see how they work up. I really am looking forward to adding that aspect to my explorations and sharing the results with my students. I cannot believe in 6 weeks I’m going to be dyeing wool with students again. Shoot, I’d better get started trying to figure out what went wrong last time I tested things with the commercial acid dyes.
