Sunday spinning update: qiviut

I was away this weekend at the DKC Knitter’s Frolic in Toronto helping out at the Sheeps Ahoy booth, but I don’t have my thoughts sorted enough to tell you about that yet.

What I can tell you is that my qiviut is finally plied! I have about 817 yards in 54g and it feels as soft as a cloud. It was a treat to spin, but I know that I bought more than I intended. It will go into the stash and I’ll do some careful thinking and research about what this yarn should be when it grows up and gets knit.

I’m pondering adding slightly more twist to it, but I haven’t settled on an answer yet. Feel free to chime in with advice.

When I got home today, I was happy to see that the plants that Sam and I started last week are starting to look a bit green.

Radishes and peas beginning to sprout

The peas and radishes are taking off, and some of the herbs, flowers and beans look like they’re going to be more visible very soon. With the upcoming house move (2 weeks!) I really don’t know what their future looks like, but that will get sorted out in time.
