On to other projects.
I was able to finish spinning this yesterday during e's three! hour nap. I'm still amazed. Then I started plying it last night and finished up today. Because I'm too excited about spinning I started the next project already! While I was waiting for the singles of the above yarn to calm down I started spinning some fiber I got at OFFF last year. Pics later, it's a little complicated on the planning side, more later.
Next are the knitting projects. First up is the hat for little e.
I felt so bad he didn't have a knitted hat to wear the first few weeks I started one, of course the weather finally heated up, but I think the hat will fit later. I'm using Koigu KPPPM. I really like how many colors are in the skein. It's not gender bent too much. The yarn is also doing a nice striping thing. I'll take another picture with e modeling it soon. Well, when
it's finished, which might not be soon!
Next are the mitered squares.
I started this project when I was waiting to go into labor. e was 17 days late so I was a little on pins and needles! I'm using Dale of Norway Baby Ull. I'm using Michelle's guidelines for the squares. I have a TON of this yarn, it's one that I would buy while visiting shops. Only $6 a skein it was easy to pick up one in a color I liked or hadn't seen before. Now I have enough to make plenty of squares!
And last is the log cabin-ish blanket. I'm using yarn that I plant dyed many years ago with a friend. The project was supposed to use up all the odds and ends but I'm running out of odds and ends! The blanket needs to measure 40x40 when I'm done for Afghans for Afghans to accept it. If anybody has Texas Bighorn yarn that is plant dyed I would love your bits. If the bits are at least one ounce that is helpful. It looks like the picture of the blanket will have to wait for the next post. The picture doesn't want to play right now!
I'm anxiously awaiting the dyes in the mail! I'm also trying to figure out when I can schedule in some dyeing since little e can help with that. I wear a mask while I work and I don't think they make one for babes! I'm off to get Jane's prize in the mail, spin, and possibly sew!
