I have been knitting… I swear

Standard

Just because it seems like I haven’t doesn’t mean that is the case. The February Lady Sweater is still on the needles and I’m almost done the body, it just takes so frelling long. Seriously. It’s out of a recycled sweater that I found at the Value Village. The sweater itself was hideous so I felt no remorse (except maybe that someone worked hard on the orginal sweater only to have it discarded to VV). I’m guessing by the amount I have at the moment that it’s going to be a three-quarter lenght sleeve that I go with for the sleeves.
It seems everytime it gets warm I want to spin, spinning and spring/summer go hand in hand in my world, I have no idea why. But I have been spinning a lot lately. Here is the skein of the lovely stuff I did at spinning day (navajo plyed and weightin in at 4. something oz). I call it “Sparkle Motion”, and if you catch that referance know that I love you.

Remember the stuff I was carding during the power outage? Ya well, I used it to bait myself to get through a paper and ended up finishing the carding and spinning and plying it. Thusly volia (Approx 139 yards) Blueruin was born. Both skeins need to be set but I think I’ll wait until I have a few more that need setting before I do it, I prefer to do a schwack load at once
