This is going to be a sock made out of 'Rhubarb Pie'. Handspun, sport weight, have no idea what WPI are. But, HEY, the pattern calls for sport weight, and that is what she is! I'll take that!
FYI, this is the finest yarn I have managed to spin to date. Maybe I am just not cut out for lace weight spinning. Now..... anyone who knows me, knows that saying "I can't" isn't in my vocabulary, if only that would rub off on my 3 little pumpkins.
I am known not only for my stubbornness, but for my laziness. I did NOT set the twist. We'll see if I live to regret that! It is going OK coming off the bobbin. Yes, I am impatient too! I wanted to continue playing with my new toy.
I had a fabulous time last night with all my RV/spin/knit sisters and brothers last night. I spent a small fortune in fiber from David. Thanks Dave for coming, bringing your stuff and staying to spin with us. It was fun getting to know you!This, below, is a chevron scarf. I am knitting it with the Sleepy Hollow roving I got from Wiley. I am so wealthy in roving now, I am hardly able to decide what to spin first. Then, what to do with the yarn I have made. What a problem to have, eh? More like a blessing!
Yes, there are 2 of them. I am going to graft them together so that the chevron's go out from each other. (I have no idea if that makes any sense, but I'll show you a pix when it is done and all will be clear. Any of you praying folks out there, please pray for my great-aunt Aline. She is dying, most likely. She is 82 and her systems are failing. Thankfully, she is in good humor and not afraid. I really hope she passes quickly and not have to suffer the indignity of protracted illnesses. I have been to see her everyday since she was admitted, and it is really sad. BTW, this is one of the ladies who fed my interest in handwork. I will always cherish her for that. If I am a little absent more than usual, this is why. My spare time will be ministering to her.
