Knitting

WIP Wednesday 9/4/13, Yarn Along and Spinning

ON THE NEEDLES

Today’s entry is the CEY Ruffled Tank, which lacks only the ruffles to be finished.  Actually, I’m pretty proud of myself today.  I sat down this morning and did the part of completing a project that I HATE – the mattress stitch.  This is a real accomplishment for me as I can think of at least a couple of projects that are entirely finished – except for putting them together.  I dislike it so much that I’ll put something that I put a lot of time and effort into on the back burner, never to be seen or worked on again.  Maybe I should go unearth something and finish it while I’m still congratulating myself, on that cloud of optimism that comes with finishing a dreaded task.  Nah.  Tomorrow.  Maybe.

SPIN OUT

I’m getting better at it, I can see it.  My long anticipated roving arrived yesterday and after a period of oohs and aahs, I decided on the natural gray and white BFL to start and this is what resulted:

Is this beautiful or what?

Before spinning, mixed BFL

This lovely fiber came from Fire and Fluff and you can bet I’ll be paying them another virtual visit soon.
