|Mountain Colors Roving|
The Colinette is finished and I'm really happy with it. I worked on part of it sitting in the back of our van while my husband was driving while we were on vacation. He even got a short video of me spinning while we were at a rest area.
I had a really fun time shopping at The Woolery while we were on vacation. After that we headed down and I got to shop at Smoky Mountain Spinnery too.
I wasn't sure that I would love spinning on the wheel even though I was fascinated by the idea of it. I was wrong. I have been having tons of fun spinning and can't wait to do more knitting with my own handspun. I even bought a pound of Potluck Roving so that I would have more than my usual four ounces to play with.
I am still working on my February Lady sweater and hoping to finish it sometime in the next week. I have a pair of socks on the needles for the husband, but other than that I'm not sure what my next project will be. I need to finish my ten stitch blanket that is going to end up being somewhere around crib size instead of a bigger one simply because I want it finished.
I haven't made a hexipuff in ages and guess I really need to get back to those too. I have decided not to stuff most of them and may go back and take the stuffing out of the ones I've made that I did stuff. I can always use the stuffing for Mother Bear bears or Monsters. I've completed a couple of those lately too. Pictures to follow.
