Days 10-16

Oh my, where has the time gone? I've been diligently spinning every day (and I've even managed to take some pictures) but that has really cut into my blogging time. My internet time in general, actually. I don't even want to think about the state of my blogroll.

So what have I been up to?


As you can see, the purple Cormo is done. That's 330 yards of 2-ply heavy lace-weight. It's really, really lovely.

And I've started the second bump of Polwarth. One bobbin of three is done.


I'm shooting for a worsted or aran weight 3-ply. Maybe it will be something for Tadpole. Or maybe it will be something like this for me.

Speaking of Tadpole, the Cormo passes the nom test.


And so does the sweater I've been working on for her.


Here it is in a mostly-finished state a few days ago. I wove in the last end tonight and now it just needs buttons and blocking. But I have the buttons!

The color is incredibly tough to photograph but this shot actually shows the true shades of purple and the stitch pattern pretty well.


My model experienced a gravity surge.

One more thing on the knitting front: I finished Rock Island (except for blocking). FO shots soon!

Less blogging is okay, and especially when it brings so much beautiful handspun! The new purple cormo is amazing. I love it! And yes, gravity sometimes just happens. ;) But Tadpole is still sweet, even when she's sort of upside down. Her new sweater is lovely.

Quite the gravity surge, indeed! I love the texture and color of the little cardigan.

I wouldn't worry about the blogroll. Babies, knitting, and spinning most definitely trump internet time.

I'm going to have to start borrowing a baby for all my blog photos!!! Too freakin' cute! And your new profile pic is great too!

Love the sweater, love the spinning, love the babe!
