I haven't been spinning a lot lately, just a little bit. It's not because of lack of wonderful fiber to play with, it just was too messy around my spinning wheel. Now that it's all cleaned up again, I'm sure I'll be spinning more often. Today's yarn I made back in April. After the first try of cabled spinning turned out so well, I had to give it another try. I love it!
Notice the colors of the bag on the magazine reflect the colors in my fiber!
fiber: 4oz Corriedale by Sweetgeorgias March 2009 Fiber Club
4oz Falkland by FatCatKnits (purchased about 2 years ago)
yardage: 328yds cabled yarn (both colorways were navajo plied first, and than cabled together)
Biko is not all that happy these days. Most of the day she's lying around like this, even though she has more comfortable places to be. She doesn't want to play in the backyard. The only times she perks up is, when we tell her to go for a car ride or for a walk. She isn't all that hungry either, but she was never a food oriented dog. She does eat eventually, but it's not the same if she can't "yell" at somebody to stay away from her food bowl, before she's actually starts eating ....
To leave you with something crafty, here's a sneak peek of my first potholder. I'm sure you have read about the potholder swap down south of the border. I let myself get so inspired by the beautiful pieces, that I went stash diving and came up with a few colors of cotton DK thread to make a few. It's so much fun! More about them later when all are done.
Have a wonderful weekend!
